One Year Ago Today

One year ago today I published my first blog article - here is the first paragraph...

I have created this blog for two main purposes - as a means of communication for those whom I serve as an elder at the Skillman Church of Christ in Dallas, and as a means to discipline myself. I have never been one to share much of my personal thoughts and reflections, but am convicted to do so to be more accountable to the people at Skillman and to practice a discipline of journaling for my own personal growth.

I'm not sure how well the first purpose has been served - I never really know who, if anyone reads it, but the second purpose I have addressed fairly well. My intent was to post at least 2-3 times per week. As of today a I have published 183 posts - over the course of a year that's roughly once every other day; sometimes more frequently, sometimes less, but overall a higher pace than I anticipated - somewhat inflated because I frequently borrow from whatever I am currently reading. I find that others often are much more eloquent at expressing thoughts that are on my mind. Like this one from Max Lucado...

Congratulations on the anniversary, Craig! I'll subscribe to your blog via RSS, so that I can get it by email. That's at least one guaranteed reader per post! :)

Thanks for all that you are doing for our community.
