Jon Acuff is Back

The only thing harder than beginning is beginning again.

Jon Acuff 4So states Jon Acuff in the opening paragraph to the opening blog of his new website. I’d include more of that paragraph, but Jon’s website people have reached a technical sophistication with this blog that renders his words non-copy-and-paste-able.

He may be extremely popular, but he’s not about to be most-quoted. I didn’t check to see if his people had also found a way to block screenshots. I’ll just use an older file picture here.

Still, yesterday on Day One, or as he calls it, Day Zero, the Stuff Christians Like guy found a way to rally the troops and no doubt got a gazillion readers, as evidenced by over 600 comments. The post itself is called Day Zero. (Two other short posts followed Monday as well.)

Wither all that content from the previous SCL?  The parting of ways between Acuff and Dave Ramsey was said to have been amicable.  I guess we’ll have to see… 

Meanwhile, the blog has a banner containing an ad for a new book by Jenny Acuff, How to be Married to a Dreamer. Click the image and you find yourself signing up to be on a mailing list. Clever. You’ve got to give them all credit, these guys have got working social media down to a science. 

Ironic twist: Blog post number two ends with:

Do you ever feel guilty when you self promote? 

Why don’t you tell us, Jon.
