I never could have imagined I’d write 1,000 blog posts when I wrote my first post back in September of 2007. But today that milestone has been reached.
Generally I don’t like to talk about this blog while blogging. Just seems weird.
But today is different I guess.
First off, a huge thank you to you if you are reading this. This blog, while written by me, has been shaped by many of you who consistently form a small community that dives into difficult topics in genuine ways.
I think probably only my wife and my mom have read all 1,000 posts, but many of you have been loyal readers and commenters for years. Even though I write for myself to have an outlet, I’ve also been genuinely blessed by you.
So I’m curious to know…
(A random note while we’re talking about this blog. I had a first yesterday at church. A man and his wife greeted me on stage at Sunset after one of our morning gatherings. Once he said he knew me from my blog and introduced himself I knew who he was, but I didn’t know he was visiting Portland all the way from Phoenix and came to my church because of my blog. He’s been a reader for quite a while and my church was first on his list to visit in Portland. It was quite a special moment for me.)
