On Blog Stats

Just to say, it’s great to see the blog Stats are up again! Thank you for visiting. The traffic indicates that things are busy indeed. So far, this is how we are doing today:

The list continues…

Even when I wasn’t blogging (for about a year), the Stats never actually dropped anything under a 100 views a day. Most of the postings here are reiterations of the Gospel, Christianity, Biblical Archaeology, Church news and so on. I tend to try and keep things positive or, at least, neutral, and avoid ranting and negativity! There is enough of that out there – and even on some so-called ‘Christian’ blogs. Venom. Sarcasm. Hatred. Vindictiveness. The familiar Gospel for All Saints Day (today) is quite pertinent:

Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, 2 and he began to teach them.

The Beatitudes

He said:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
    for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
    for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
    for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
    for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
    for they will be called children of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Amen.

But I digress. Since this blog started in 2011, this is where we now stand:

Heading to the 7 digits.
