The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 20,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 7 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
Not one to seek notoriety, and yet wanting to raise consciousness on matters of The Church’s attitude towards gender and sexuality; I have never sought to reach a large capacity readership. However, having said that, I do appreciate the ability to propagate the message of inclusivity – especially as it relates to how the Church deals with the important matter of entrenched homophobia and misogyny. I am very grateful for the facility provided by ‘WordPress’ for empowering the exercise of free speech being granted to ordinary people like myself, who seek, not to rule the world, but to have a stake in the implementation of peaceful coexistence and human justice for all people.
Thanks to my Readers who seem to find something useful in what I bring to your attention, and who bother to read my comments, and maybe comment yourselves. Thanks, also, to those writers and bloggers, mostly on Thinking Anglicans and Anglican Down Under whose articles I follow and most often draw inspiration from.
I wish you all a brave New Year for 2015, and that you may find pleasure in just being part of God’s wonderful creation.
Father Ron Smith, Christchurch, New Zealand
