Hello, there! I’m Christopher, which you should have known if you saw my cute little green logo. So, let me not distract you from the following post. I hope you like it! I’d love to hear your thoughts after you’re done reading it! Enjoy!
Wow! It's so amazing: I've been doing this blog for two years! That's amazing!!!
People from all sorts of places have dropped by. America, Canada, and South Korea have been at the top, but also people from places like Australia, China, Italy, France, and South Africa as well, just to name a few. I have had 11,100+ visitors this year (19,800+ total) and 70,500+ pageviews (134,500+ total). Wow, those two stats were better than last year's! (At this point, I can't give an exact number on the comments posted this year, but I'm 100% sure that it was less than last year's 8,000.)
I am really thankful for all you wonderful people who have read my blog. But like I say, the full experience includes the commenting! And I am so, so thankful for the 90+ people who have commented on my website! (I actually thought that I had passed 100, but I can't not say so for sure.) To everyone who have posted a comment (except the troll and the spammer), thank you, thank you, thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart! Sometimes it takes courage, effort, or something else to decide to post a comment. But your comments brighten up my day and I am so thankful for them! Even if you commented once and just said, "Great post!" it does mean a lot to me. (So for all you who read my post without commenting . . . shame on you. LOL.)
A big thank you to nearly 30 subscribers to my "164 Outsiders" newsletter! You guys are awesome for wanting those emails from me! Thanks!!!
But an even bigger thank you for those who have stuck with me for two years! And those badges go out to Christopher Green (nice name, by the way!), GuitarWithArms, and MimeForJesus! I know that they have not read every single post or may not be 100% up to date, but they are faithful readers and I am so thankful for them! You guys are absolutely amazing!
And I've made so many friends via my site, including Madeleine Grace, Cece, and Sarah Grace. You guys are amazing friends! (And I'm 100% sure that more females have commented than males. Dunno why. Why ask me? Hey, it's been awhile since I've done a Q&A!)
Thank you to all the people who have said encouraging words to me and encouraged me to keep on going on. I really find it amazing how many people have been impacted by my blog. In return, I have been impacted by all of you!
I am really excited for this third year. I have ideas that I've had for a long, long time that I haven't been able to do yet. I hope to start starting next year! Really pumped for what's ahead!
One thing I can say is that I feel another directional change has come. During my first year, I focused more on devotions and theological thoughts. Then during the second year, it shifted more to music reviews and fan related things. (It's not that I didn't do any devotions during the first year, but it's that devotions weren't really my focus during the second year.) And I can see that my blog will shift more to personal thoughts during this third year. If you guys are hardcore fans, you'll know that I lived in South Korea for most of the first two years of my website. Now I live in America and have more interaction with people my age. (Social life does exist for homeschoolers! #iprovedit Sorry, that's for one of the teens at church. LOL!!!) Next year, Imma gonna start college and such. I'm kinda starting to realize that I have a life now, so I have a medium to share my thoughts as I journey on this crazy thing called life. (That's why on my homepage it says, "Where God, life, and music collide.") I hope my posts are an encouragement to believers and flashlights to the lost.
But I do have so many other things planned and I'm so excited to share them with you! I also hope to venture out into different medium(s) in the future, but no guarantee of that. I'm already crazy busy at this point, so we'll see what God has in store.
Anyways, thanks for checking out my website! Please share my site with others and continue coming. Subscribe to the newsletter to be updated and such. AND COMMENT! Your experience isn't complete without your comments.
It's about to get even more awesome than it ever has been! BAM! Let's go!
Oh, check out some old posts. MY CHALLENGE FOR YOU: Read at least one old post of your choice and comment. (BONUSES: Continue to comment. Share my website with all you know. Keep coming!)
