Here is my first post, which is actually a bit funny now: Facebook Freedom
It’s funny because I’ve since been sucked back into the Facebook vortex. I still have the same concerns that I posted about before with regard to Facebook, but it was good to be away from it for some time, and I’ve also taken a different approach to it now: I make far more aggressive use of the feature that allows you to hide people from your “feed”.
In the past year, the blog has had more than 67,000 page views (and that does not include my own views – no, I have not been sitting here hitting “reload” to increase it artificially!); in any case I estimate that at least 2,000 of those come from Amazon.com’s “bot”, which by now must have downloaded the entire site a few times over. Honestly, it’s unbelievable how many automated visits I get from their servers.
I have no idea how long this blogging thing will continue: after all, I am leaving Rome at the end of June to move back to the United States, and life will be a bit more ordinary (thank God). So, we’ll see what happens.
A big thank you to all who read the blog, to all who have sent me their prayer intentions, and to all who have prayed for me! Oremus pro invicem: let us pray for one another!
