Just over a year…

Posted on

Just over one year ago, I started this blog with a broad idea of what it would be like.  So far, that idea has morphed a few times and will probably continue to do so in the months ahead.

Articles have been few as I learn how and what to write about.  The big response of the year came to thoughts and considerations about the marriage amendment in North Carolina.

Videos continue to be a source of fun for me.  I love music of all types and have posted a wide variety, many of which still get weekly hits as people discover them and come to the blogsite to view them.

Pictures I have taken and posted are more for my own enjoyment than anything else since there are so many millions of photographs online.  The biggest surprise of the year is the consistent interest in an aerial shot I took of the Whitsunday Islands.  Yesterday, almost a year after first posting it, more people viewed it than on any other day all year.  I was mystified by this sudden surge of activity…then I saw that Bing had featured a picture of Whitsunday Island as its cover page and then a quick search popped my photo up as the first on their list!  Go figure!  Another steady stream of visitors come to see the picture I took of the Mosaic of Jesus at Hagia Sophia in Istanbul.

Anyway, it has been a fun venture and I look forward to adding more content, writing more articles, taking more pictures and posting more videos in the coming year.  There will also be two added features–a daily devotional article and a link to the sermon I preached the previous Sunday.  As often as possible the devotional will be tied to the sermon, written by a good friend of mine, Mike Edwards who is crafting the sermon materials into prose for daily consumption!

So thanks for coming!  I hope to make the site worth your while as you come back several times a week.
