One Year at the Blog

Sources today confirmed that the first entry to TruePravda was recorded one year ago today with this miniscule posting. Yes, it’s true. I’ve been at this a whole year. I remember when a year used to be a long time.

I had no idea how frequently I would post, nor what I would post, but at the encouragement of my wife, went forward. My log says that this is the 321st entry. I never thought I would have that much to say, and really I haven’t said that much (321 is kiddie play compared to some of the uber-bloggers out there). The comment count is 198, a quarter of which are probably mine. I really need to do a better job of responding to comments.

Surprisingly, the most popular entry by far has been “Separation of Church and Business,” where I questioned Family Christian Stores’ motives for opening shop on Sundays. Needless to say, from reading many of the comments, I’ll never be able to get a job at Family Christian Stores. The funny thing is that I wrote an extended follow-up to the post, but since everyone floated into that article from Google and other blogs, nobody read it. I should have put an update on the original article, but it’s just as well—I still think my original post was sufficient.

I’ve had to change webhosts mid-year, but thankfully that worked out OK. I’ve changed the layout a couple of times, most recently to a 3-column layout, and I’ve learned a lot about CSS along the way.

Anyway, enough rambling. I’ll continue doing this as long as I have something to say (and as long as I have time to think about it before I say it…). Thanks to all you who read this either deliberately or by accident. I enjoy your comments and conversation. As always, if anyone ever has any ideas you would like to see discussed here, please let me know. God bless.

  1. Congratulations, Jared! I don’t remember where I first found a link to your blog (I think that it was from PostModern Clog,) but I sure am glad that I found it. I speak a little Russian, so getting the passive Russian information from your blogs is really cool.

    Here’s to one year, and more to come!


  2. Spasiba, tovarish Chris! Thanks for reading. Congratulations yourself on being comment #200! I’ll be sure to add your blog to the blogroll on the next update.
