I'm not sure when it happened, exactly, but somewhere in the middle of the evening, late last evening, this site had its 200,000th visitor. Well, that is since I installed the site meter at the end of July 2006.
I first started blogging early in June, just before General Convention 2006 in Columbus. I had absolutely no idea what I was getting myself into. As I have said, I really thought I was doing this for my congregation, to keep them informed while I was away and to help teach them about the intricacies of how our church works.
About half-way through General Convention, I began to get comments from those on both sides of the aisle and around the world. Well! What a rude awakening THAT was!
I've made so many cyberfriends, had so many interesting conversations, strayed over to the deep end of the baptismal pool and over my head more than a few times, and learned more about technology than I could ever ask for or imagine.
There are people who read my blog that I have never met - people who know more about me an my deepest thoughts on certain subjects than my own mother or some of my children.
It's an amazing thing.
And, I am deeply grateful.
