Seven Years of Daily Posts Has Come to an End

Since I started this blog in September 2007, I have written over 2200 posts. At first, I wrote fairly long posts every two-three days; for the last seven years, I have written shorter posts every weekday and longer posts many Saturdays.

I knew the time would come when I couldn't continue at that pace, and yesterday was the first weekday in over seven years when I didn't post something. I'm not sure right now how I will move forward with this blog, but I hope to be able at least to keep the schedule I used when I started of at least two posts each week.

I have enjoyed tremendously recording the things of my soul and will continue to do so. I have spent no effort trying to employ any sort of marketing strategies to maximize the traffic here, so I appreciate greatly those who have found this blog, commented on the posts and, in some cases, formally followed my thoughts here. Thank you, sincerely, for your thought and comments over the years. They have meant and continue to mean the world to me.

If my words have helped you in any way, I am humbled by that. All I ask in that case is that you share this site with others who also might be helped in some way. With well over 2000 posts, I think I have written about most topics someone would associate with Mormonism, specifically, and religion, generally.

It has been a joyous daily walk along my individual path of faith, and I have loved walking it with all of you.

See you sometime next week.

Please do keep your blog up!
With that many posts, it may take some of us a while to read through them all. :)

I'll miss hearing your thoughts regularly, but understand. Thank you for being so caring, honest and faithful.

I really enjoy reading your posts. Yours has been a balanced and thoughtful perspective that has helped me to navigate some difficult times in my own faith. Please don't stop all together!

I hope you will be able to choose what is right for you and your family, and will support you in that although I will find it very hard not to be looking for your next supportive, diverse,thoughtful and committed post.
As I have negotiated a path of great sickness and anguish in our family, your posts have uplifted and included me and my scarcely conscious thoughts and feelings, and given them form and heft. You have served and administered comfort and thoughtfulness to our aching hearts and bodies and our muddled minds.
As I have prayed inadequately to see God's hand at work in our lives, I may have overlooked you as evidence.
God bless you and your family in all your endeavours, my brother.

Your posts always lift me up and give me something to think about. Even if you only post every once in a while, when the inspiration strikes, I will be so glad to read your thoughts. Heck, you could even go back through and "flashback" to your favorite posts.
