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.
