That’s two blogposts every three days. Or just under 5 a week.
It’s time to slow down. Just a little.
NewSmallChurch.com officially started on November 19, 2012. All but three of the 100 posts in those 154 days were written by me (thank you, Craig Forrest, Dave Jacobs & Dixie Phillips for your contributions). Half a dozen were republished from the pages of The Grasshopper Myth, but the rest were original content for this website.
In looking back on all that writing, I’ve come across some other numbers you might find interesting. I’ll lay a few of them out for you, then let you know about how my posting schedule will be changing from now on.
I know we’re not about numbers here, but since none of this happens face-to-face, numbers are a stronger reflection of what’s happening on a website than they are in a local church. In a small way, they’re a picture of the community we’re building here.
NewSmallChurch.com by the Numbers
19,550 – Total pageviews.
