A Year In Review

Posted January 2, 2013 @ 10:56pm | by Tripp

Jay Emerson Johnson has blogged about some of his hopes for his new year as a blogger and some reflections on 2012. It got me thinking that maybe I should just make a quick list of what's been afoot here at anglobaptist.org. Let's see...

The stats begin in April when the blog was moved to a new server.

  • 8,291 people visited this site
  • Visits: 15,285
  • Pageviews: 24,906

There are four posts that have received special notice. They are listed here in chronological order. Seems I need to talk about the Episcopalians a bit more frequently. That post was the big winner for the year with the most visits in one day at 732. 

It's been a good year. SogoMedia is up and running and my show, Busted Stuff (edited by Jordan Krumbine of Horbawrong Creative), is doing well. The tunes from The Handcuffs, "Resurrection" and "God Is Sure One Funny Girl," are great help. I'm grateful for these friends from the Chicago music scene for helping out.

Finally, Sojourners has been picking up some of my posts. This has been a particular honor. Sojo editors Cathleen Falsani and Sandi Villarreal Middaugh are generous and encouraging badasses.

I'm not sure what the new year will bring. I have one semester of course work left here at the GTU and will be doing a lot of work pulling all the coursework details together as well as designing my comprehensive exams. So, I cannot predict yet if the blog will be a place to talk out some of the above or if it will serve as a place for other things, distractions if you will. Of course, I will talk about church and music. I hope that's alright with you all. 

Busted Stuff will continue as will First Thoughts. I'd love to know your thoughts on both of these little shows as well as the rest of the content here on Ye Olde Blogge. As much as this is still a very personal space for me to share what I'm up to professionally and personally, it's also meant to be a place of conversation. Your input is greatly appreciated.

Grace, peace, and joy to all.
