Somewhere in the last few days I noticed I passed 4800 posts since starting this blog back in the dark ages. I think I’ve been at this for 9 years. There are so many other forms of communication and writing that have come and gone since then… and I here I sit. If I wroteContinue reading “Half a million words”
The Prophetic Voice Raised Becoming Anglican Anti-Racist It’s been a good year. It is my hope to keep on blogging, keep on challenging as I am being challenged, and share the growth I hope I am receiving in my walk with Christ.
I have used WordPress for years and had the “free” plan. That meant from time to time there would be ads at the bottom of each post. A family member sent me a screen shot the other day of a post with an ad at the bottom. It was enough to send me scrambling toContinue reading “Hopefully an upgrade”
I have finally passed 90,000 views for my blog. Small potatoes in the blogging world, but for me a moment to say thanks. I am so encouraged to know people are reading, and the comments I get on Facebook. I am also grateful for those I meet and they compliment my posts. It’s gratifying. ThankContinue reading “90,000”
Just when I get introduced to a good blogger, he goes away. But I sure understand his reasons. Modern liberals and conservatives continue to control the discussion. Those of us who think otherwise are marginalized because we refuse to accept the power and influence of those who are members of the extremes. I get thatContinue reading “To be … or not to be…”
The blog was down the last couple of days as I was trying to navigate Google’s new payment systems and how they charge for website domains, etc. Huge hassle. I’m probably the only one who is upset, but I’m back. Whew.
I was informed by a WordPress notification this is my 5th Anniversary for this blog. I’ll never match tremendous numbers of “hits” or views like other great friends of mine, but I have enjoyed the process. Thank you for reading. Thank you for commenting. Thank you to those who let me know in person thatContinue reading “Happy Anniversary”
An interesting development, brought to my attention yesterday, is I had whole pages that were blank. Then, I discovered the problem is links I highlight have disappeared. For an example, click on my “Book Review” page and see what happened to my book titles. Is anyone else using WordPress having this issue? Or, if it hasContinue reading “Are any other WordPress Users having trouble with highlighted links right now?”
When I first saw this, I thought it said “LOBSTER Award,” and I was excited… and hungry. Then, I read that “Liebster” means “favorite” in German. Okay, I still like it. So, my blog has been nominated for a “Liebster” by my wife. (I’m still her favorite husband!) The rules are: Tell 11 things aboutContinue reading “The Liebster Award”
We really use too many words. And then we use wrong words. I often get confused between when to use “effect” and “affect.” I’m confused on that right now. An exercise I want to take up this month is to use one-word titles. Nothing long at all. Just try to sum up what I wantContinue reading “Words”
