Well, I’m proud to say that American Secularist is off to a good start. I started the blog the last week of April, so I’ve been going for just over a month.
In that short period of time, there have been 900 views – an average of about 30 a day. People from over a dozen countries have stumbled across what I’ve written, and 36 people have decided to follow the blog – thanks to all of you – please share it with your friends if you are enjoying what you read.
I’ve posted a little more often that I thought I might be able to, averaging a post every other day. That might be a bit too much for most to swallow per week, so I may experiment with taking that down to 2-3 times per week; we’ll see – I’ve got a lot to say.
Some of you are following by email, while others are following through WordPress. I personally think that the best way is to ‘like’ my page on Facebook, at http://www.facebook.com/americansecularist. By following this way, you’ll be notified of posts as soon as they’re published. In addition, I’ll be sharing daily videos, links, and other media on Facebook that is on topic and that I think you’ll enjoy.
If you have an iPad or iPhone, take a second or two to search for American Secularist via your Safari browser, and copy a shortcut to this page – an icon will be created (the handsome photo of Mr. Holyoake, below) that will function as an app to quickly bring up the home page whenever you tap it.
I’m afraid I’m going to be terribly busy for a day or two, so I probably won’t get to write – but I’m looking forward to blogging the Epistle of James next – and I have a few ideas about the relationship between reading and divine revelation that I’m developing as well.
Again, please comment on what I’ve written; I’m hoping to start a conversation, not a monologue!
