Blog's First Birthday

On November 18th 2007, I took my first tentative blog steps. Today, I marvel at the circle of friends, the wide range and liveliness of responses and (somehow) the ongoing birth of 120 posts over twelve months.

I have rarely attracted huge numbers of hits, though daily they number tens from across all continents. I recognize that my devotional tone is unlikely to register widely! But, perhaps the most surprising statistic concerns the average lengths of time others spend on my site. Apparently, 25.6 % of hits spend at least 1 hour each. Of course, it could mean people leave it on screen while they fall asleep!

I am encouraged to stagger on into a second year. Thank you for all your encouragement.

John and I are excited to learn from you at Calvary today. It is also comforting that you have no plans to stop blogging soon. I have not been able to log in recently, so I look forward to catching up. We still have our baby, he turned 5 months yesterday. Carol will not even recognize him he is getting so big! I, as well, am ENORMOUS. 6 1/2weeks left to go!
