Happy New Year! I wasn’t planning to blog today, but I received my 2014 report for this blog from Wordpress.com’s “helper monkeys,” and so I thought I’d post it up. (I could use some “helper monkeys” for my writing. I wonder how I can find some?) I also got the stats for www.coauthoryourlifewithGod.com, so I’m linking you to that report as well for those of you who want to see how my blogging-a-book is going. (The short answer? It’s going well!)
I’m still trying to figure out how to find and connect with more readers for both blogs, but connecting with other events and popular sites is helpful: the Marian Christmas Movie Countdown proved very popular here, and of course launching the discernment blog the same week that Lifetime ran their show The Sisterhood was a huge help in getting CoAuthor Your Life with God off to a great start.
Having said that, I wouldn’t be blogging–and enjoying blogging–without readers. So a big thank you for stopping by to read, to comment, to reflect on the spirituality of writing, communication, and media. A special shout out to those of you who commented and shared my blog posts 10 or more times: Francis Philip and Anela!
While I look forward to a new year of writing and connecting with other writers and readers, I begin the year with prayer for all my current readers, especially today.
Here’s an excerpt from the report:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
