I periodically check the stats on my blog. I don’t always understand them, but I do check them. Apparently, I hit a couple of milestones.
Thus far, my little 54 installment of words have had 1,007 views with 26 recorded likes, 236 blogger likes, 37 shares and 33 followers in a dozen countries worldwide. My “best” day was Sept. 3 with 60 views; my average is around 19 per day.
The most read blog was “Amazing Grace,” which was a tribute to my wife on the anniversary of her death, with 39 views. Right behind it was “Beer with Jesus” at 37.
Those are the stats. I don’t have anything to compare them with, so I’m not sure what real value they are. But it reminds me of the old saw, “Statistics are like loose women, they’ll tell you whatever you want to hear.”
I didn’t start this project with an eye toward statistics, but rather as an written history of my life and experiences.
As I stated in my initial blog, my comments are always filtered through the lens of Judeo-Christian values and largely based on 40 years of marriage raising five children. I still have thousands of ideas collected over the years, but sharing those ideas with strangers (who I hope will soon become friends!) is the challenge.
As then, that’s where you come in. I still need feedback. I still need suggestions. I still need constructive criticism. This is a journey we’re taking together.
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: God will not tell others what He wants for my life without telling me Himself. God and I are on speaking terms. We talk every single day.
