July, 2013 – Top 10 Posts & Site Stats

July for me was one of those months that happened to just elude me. It was a quick month. With summer nearing its peak, I seemed to have been more pre-occupied with other activities which stole time away from my blogging journey. 

However, this said, I’m grateful for what I’ve achieved this month. One of the signature accomplishments this month was the memorization of 2 Timothy. I’ve spent countless hours, reading, reflecting, meditating, and studying Scripture. This meant time away from the blogosphere, reading other books, time spent outside. Therefore, as you could see in my site stats, this took a heavy toll on my site statistics, but I’m not worried. I gained something greater – the spiritual intimacy with God that needed to be restored. All in all, it was a sacrifice worth taking. The benefit of memorizing and reciting the word of God to my readers has been an exhilarating exercise. In fact, I am planning to incorporate this spiritual discipline every year, where I will memorize one book of the Bible once a year.

Site Statistics

As mentioned earlier, there were some variables that I believe led to this decline in July, 2013. First, summer is a historically low month for blog readership. Most people are spending less time reading blog posts and doing other things (more outdoor activities). But a key reason is my lack of time invested in growing my blog this month. I focused most of my energy memorizing 2 Timothy which resulted time away from promoting my platform and writing more blog posts. I know numbers mean things, but in this case, I have gained something more profound than double or triple digit increases – the intimacy with my Lord Jesus Christ. If you’ve been reading my posts on a regular basis, I wanted to thank you again for being part of my blog.
