Who are you?
I am a non-single male in my mid-20s. I left an Old Order Amish home and community when I was eighteen.
Are you shunned by the Amish?
I am not shunned. I declined baptism and the Amish will only shun those that have been baptized prior to transgressing.
Would you ever return to the Amish?
Periodically, you may find guest posts on this blog. Those will be clearly marked and in the “Guest Posts” category so you don’t confuse the author with me.
If you have a really interesting or relevant story that you think me and readers of this blog would enjoy reading, by all means, send it to xamishatheistATgmailDOTcom. If I really like it and I believe readers of this blog will learn from it, I’ll ask you for permission to post it as a guest post.
I’ve gotten several requests to do guest appearances on television shows or podcasts. While I have done it in the past, and you can email me your request, I will probably decline. I am far more likely to do a written interview or opinion piece.
Monetary Benefit Disclosure
I benefit financially from the ads that are shown on this blog (this is a recent development, Sept. 2012). I get paid when the ads are viewed – not when they are clicked. These ads may be irrelevant and at times a distraction but hopefully they’ll help me recoup the huge amount of energy I put into this blog.
So far I have done no book reviews or anything like that, although I might in the future. I will not gain monetary benefits from those, other than from the aforementioned ads that might be displayed on the same page. In other words, I will not write a positive review about anything in exchange for payment.
