The month of June joyfully marks the 5th year anniversary of this blog. Today I opened the archives in the sidebar of this blog and opened what was my very first post entitled First Post. Since that time much has changed in my life and I realize that my life is ever changing. On July 1, 2010, in just a few days, I buy a well-recognized Catholic company and intend to take it to another level of success. I formed this blog on June 19, 2005, for the purposes of winning souls for our Lord Jesus Christ. And to this day - 5 years later - my purpose remains unchanged.
I have at this time resumed a project that I began last year; namely, to write a short pdf book on "How to Successfully Create a Catholic Blog." Reflecting on my blog, I realize that it has in five years received over 1.2 million page views with approximately 700,000 unique visitors. I wish to pass along the knowledge that I have gained to help the Catholic Blogosphere.
In the scope of this project, I realize that I would like to share testimonials with my readers about the effectiveness of blogging. And, surely there is no better time to share such thoughts than now - my 5 year blog anniversary! So, if I have - in any way - helped your spiritual life please do share your comments below. They can be completely anonymous if you so choose. I will be choosing some of these comments to include in my book as examples of the effectiveness of blogs in serving as a witness to Our Lord and the One True Church.
