WELCOMES YOU TO CONSIDER JOINING
THE NEXT STEP
IN THE EVOLUTION OF THIS
FINDING GOD ON THE TRAIN STORY
Hello, my name is George Bryant Cronk (nickname G.)
and I welcome you to consider joining me and the FGOTT
community with the next phase in the evolution of this
popular blog that is known by its followers as FINDING
GOD ON THE TRAIN - NOTES ON ENLIGHTENMENT -
Quest For A Positive, Personal Spirituality - accessible
here on Typepad at
This is the original Finding God On The Train - Notes On
Enlightenment site, as many who have been followers
for years - are well aware, which has for the past ten
years published 1200 plus FGOTT (Finding God On
The Train) Blog Posts, Affirmative Thoughts, Meditation
Guidance - or Notes On Enlightenment as they are often
described - Poems, and Prayers, along with numerous
book chapter drafts and edits.
This productive ten years of blog posting period has
been accomplished without charge, and I am proud
to say, without blog advertisements or other non-related
endorsements. The site has been open access, requiring
no registration, or subscription. I produced the content
without regard to who was benefiting from participating.
Frankly, except for an occasional comment, I am now
addressing an anonymous blog audience.
Creatively, for me, I want to begin again, to not only
build from the existing foundation but more so, to push
the envelope and become fresh and vibrant spiritually
once more. When I started this blog as a result of a
suggestion from Ann, my wife, I had no idea what
I would present as content on this blog, but I allowed
it to come and an entire offering of Affirmative Thoughts,
Meditation Guidance, Prayers, Affirmations, Poems,
unique blog posts and entire book chapters arrived
to fill the void. Here now, I want to go on and seek
the next offering, the next vehicle for communication,
the new message.
I also want to be able to share the longer works that
are nearing completion and publication with my
dedicated readers. For example, I have a book of the
poetry inspired by The Finding God On The Train Story
titled Steeples- being made ready for sharing, but I no
longer feel secure just sending out pre-published content
into the internet void, and would prefer to know who my
readers will be in advance.
As you might expect, there are also some more mundane
reasons for the change. As the blog’s audience has
expanded, the email and posting infrastructure have
bogged down with the sheer volume. And as I investigate
better working and more up-to-date email and posting
systems, I realize the expense of offering a quality blog
communication program is substantial.
I now understand that these early solutions, like
FeedBurner, although serving their initial purpose,
were not intended to sustain constant expansion.
So, before making a significant investment in
maintaining the status quo, I have wondered whether
those who have been receiving my automated blog
posts and emails on a daily basis over the past
decade are still interested and engaged.
After much prayer and meditation, I believe it is
time for this blog to grow up and flourish, to see if
its current, along with its potential audience, might
find an increased spiritual benefit and value from a
more in-depth and comprehensive blog offering; not
only augmenting and expanding on the traditional
daily posts but promoting an interactive environment:
offering both collective/group and individual/one on
one opportunities to explore, grow, pray, meditate,
learn, and enhance an individual's quest for a positive
I now imagine, in time, the Finding God On The Train
Story blog acting as a spiritual hub, a virtual community
of quest minded seekers connected within an interactive
The message of the Finding God On The Train Story
has always been to encourage a personal connection,
communication, and relationship with God; thus
establishing an individualized approach to spirituality
that fits the seeker's need.
Likewise, this connection does not, necessarily,
require a priest, pastor, shaman, prophet, or
messenger as a go-between, or any director of the
This said I envision taking on a more active role
participating in this interaction, as a fellow seeker
and someone with a framework to offer for these
So, it is now time for the Finding God On The Train
Story blog to evolve, with a part of this evolution
being the adaptation of our current TypePad
infrastructure, fostering our growth and expansion
for the next decade while supporting our move to
a more comprehensive and targeted offering featuring
three additional blogs focused on specific published
content such as the Notes On Enlightenment, the
Affirmative Thoughts, and the Spiritual Poetry of FGOTT.
At this writing, this would include three additional
content focused blogs to the Finding On The Train
After much debate and soul-searching, it has been
decided that access to all these sites will remain
open, and free of charge, along with content access
offered through established Twitter and Facebook
sites, although restricting unauthorized email requests
of posted content. Support for this effort would be
funded by offering a range of enhanced services
for supporting members willing to pay a monthly
The original Finding God On The Train Story -
Notes On Enlightenment blog site will act as
the hub and primary point of entry to all the
newly minted member supported sites, easily
The original site would focus on outlining the
enhanced member service subscription process,
providing an access point to the new sites, and
featuring the archives of posts not offered in
other related blogs. These sites will be titled:
