I finished a post last week that I started months ago on anger, sanctification, grace, and consequences:
Sanctification, by God’s grace, has led to improvements. Huge improvements by comparison, but God’s still not done rooting out this particular sin.
..and this post for whatever reason has already almost twice as many views as any other post in the history of my blog. I set a new PR for visitors in a day (nothing by a lot of bloggers’ standards and the post keeps getting more hits than anything new.
It was also a deeply personal post (which there have been more than a few of on this blog) but it apparently hit people in a way that they shared and clicked through in droves that I’ve not seen before.
I’m honored (assuming that’s what went on here) that God has used His rooting out of my sin to help others and humbled by it. I’m also continuing to re-think what I’m best suited to speaking and writing about, and this is new food for thought. I don’t get caught up much in my “stats” but I do want my writing to be read by others, and when it is I always wonder why.
To my regular readers who are reading even the “less popular” posts: thank you for sticking with me as I write. Feel free to give feedback here and on FB or Twitter, constructive and positive, that will help me grow as a writer. To those who are only reading here and there: thank you for giving me something to think about.
I don’t know if I struck a nerve or a chord, but I’m glad to see my writing doing something. Even if it’s just gathering virtual dust most of the time.
