Say Hello To The “Deus Ex Machina” Blog
“Deus Ex Machina” is the new, valiant effort of S. Armaticus, a brilliant poster on this blog and on Louie Verrecchio’s excellent “Harvesting The Fruit”.
For what is worth, I vouch blindly for the quality of this blog. So much so, that it has been given entry in the very exclusive “Walhalla” of my blogs in the right hand side column (by the by, there is a “real” Walhalla monument in Bavaria. Beautiful. Leave aside the pagan ideology for a moment, and consider it just a tribute to German lore. A visit is recommended. Nearby Regensburg is achingly beautiful).
There are, alas, some little birth problems as I see them: the name “sarmaticus” in the web address line does not help the web search engines to link the blog to “S.Armaticus”, and I think the fact that the blog is not named like the web address line does not help, either.
Therefore, in order to help the blog get a first foot in the door of the web search engines, some visits in places like this one, (,home page) this one, this one, this one or this one might help both you (to know the blog better) and him (to get the blog more established).
The beginnings of a blog are always hard. Most people think the world has been waiting for their blog. This is just not the case.
When I started my little effort I decided that I would write not for a public, but for the Blessed Virgin. It helps a lot to set the priorities straight, and avoid getting frustrated when the world, erm, stubbornly keeps ignoring us…
When we die, I think our outspokenness and orthodoxy will count much more than every stat count; and yes, we are wretched sinners; and yes, we keep making what we do not want to do. Our life is full of misery and mistakes.
But with the Lords’ help, shutting up when heresy is rife even in the highest ranks of the Vatican will not be one of them.
Good luck to the new man, then. May his pen never run dry. The Blessed Virgin is watching.
