This coming Tuesday, it will be two weeks since I finally took the plunge and began blogging. It was something I’d been thinking about doing for a good two years or longer. One of the things that held me back was the worry that I might not find enough to write about. Well, since my first post on 27 August:

  • I have posted 31 posts (including this one), making an average of 2.4 posts a day
  • The blog has had 278 visits and 514 page views from 144 unique visitors

My most-viewed post is Why I won’t be watching The X Factor, which has been shared on Facebook 30 times. The two next most popular posts are Transactional Christianity and I used to believe.

I’m fairly happy with how things have shaped up so far. I wanted this blog to be a space where I could share my own thoughts, whether in the form of structured articles or freer, more creative writing, as well as commenting on current events, culture and miscellany from around the internet. I feel I’ve managed to at least make a good start towards that goal. I’m not sure whether I’ll be able to keep up the pace of posting two or more times a day, but I wanted to quickly get plenty of content up in the initial stages. Things might slow down a bit over the coming days and weeks, but I’ll be working to keep some kind of regular posting rhythm going.

Finally, I’m really grateful to everyone who has come and visited, and especially to those who have taken the time to leave comments. Thank you, sincerely! Please keep coming back.
