Today, September 13th, is the 2 year anniversary of when I wrote my first ever blog. Here is the first blog post I ever wrote. And for the record, because of that post we were able to give a $250 donation to their non-profit that clothed and fed parent-less Iraqi children because of the war.
Here we are 2 years later and the following are some fun statistics that have accumulated over the last 730 days since my first ever post:
I have posted 538 entries
There have been just over 4,000 comments
297,019 unique visitors have visited the blog
There have been 1,095,097 page views
Over 37,000 people on Facebook have ‘Liked’ at least one of my posts
There have been 2,002 Retweets of my posts on Twitter
There are currently over 11,000 links to my posts from other sites around the Internet
People from 57 countries have visited the blog
Through this blog, you all have generously donated just over $26,000 to the work of The Marin Foundation.
To celebrate the two years, I am going to give away 2 autographed copies of my book! One of them is going to my favorite gay skeptic who has decided to not invest any money into buying my book, Eugene. Eugene, I dearly appreciate you with all my heart because although you don’t agree with me in any way, shape or form, you have the guts to continue to personally comment on this site to talk to me, instead of just talk about me to other people. So if you could please email me your address (firstname.lastname@example.org) I would love to send you a signed copy of my book.
The other signed copy will be given via a drawing. All you have to do is comment on this post and on Friday I will do a random drawing from the names of those who have commented and will send you a signed book as well.
Thanks for continuing to read, engage and do this bridge building work in living what it means to establish Kingdom.
