This is my 1500th post. I’ve been blogging for just over 3 years. I started slow, but beginning in December 2006, I began writing about 550 posts per year. I don’t know if that’s good or bad – some say write less often, some say write more often.
But, this schedule has worked for me. In the future, it may change. Soon, I will begin writing my dissertation. It’s possible that my blogging will slow down then. But, if I include parts of my dissertation or quotes from books that I’m reading, my blogging may actually increase. Who knows?
For now, I’m grateful to God for the people that he’s brought into my life through this medium called blogging. I’m also grateful to my readers for interacting with me on this blog. I’ve learned alot from you. Something very exciting has started happening recently as a result of this blog.
For the first six months or so that I blogged, my posts garnered very few comments. During the next year, the comments increased, and I was very excited about the interaction. For the next year after that, people started sending me emails, and I was able to interact with people even more personally and directly.
Now, for the last six months or so, I’ve been able to meet with several people who read my blog. Usually, they’ve contacted me through email and asked if we can have lunch together. I’ve been able to meet with a few people several times. Others are just passing through this area, so we only meet for lunch once.
I look forward to meeting more of you and corresponding with more of you through email.
