The blog is dead! Long live the blog!

As we end 2013 I will pass on what a reader of my blog passed to me:  Sometime in the past few years, the blog died. In 2014, people will finally notice.  Geez.  I never noticed.  Apparently I should have been tweeting little tidbits of stuff instead of subjecting folks to the antiquated mechanism of a blog and its seemingly out of date longer substance.  You can read it all here.

I guess I will know that my little hobby is dead when no one visits it any longer.  Until then, I will keep on posting the meandering thoughts of this Lutheran Pastor... until it is over and the last one to leave turns outs the lights...

Is anybody there?  Am I a figment of my own imagination?  Would somebody hold up a mirror to my nostrils to see if the breath has left my body?   Ooooooohhhhhhhh I feel like I am falling. . .   and I can't get up. . .

with the popularity of RSS readers, you may even have readers out there who never set foot on your actual blog. I don't know if there's any way to tell how many people read it that way, but I'm one of them.

I sure enjoy reading it.

Pastor Peters, your blog is my current homepage. I can count on it to offer something well written and thought provoking when I fire up the internet. Thanks for spending the time and energy to produce so much good content.

Twitter is great, too, but just see how many tweets point to a blog for "the rest of the story..."

I have been told the same thing, but I am still blogging (and reading your blog and others). I think it is true that not as many people are blogging as used to. It was the latest, trendiness thing for a while and now it's not. But that just means the ones that are left are the ones who survived because of their superior quality. ;-)

I am here! And I read your blog everyday. Keep up the great work.

Dear Rev. Peters, this may not be the best news for you, but I start my day with your blog, right after I take a quick look at the world news.

I wish you and yours a happy, healthy, successful and peaceful new year.
Peace and Joy!
George A. Marquart

Via the RSS feed, it's a top, regular read for me. I'd hate to have to do without your voice, Fr. Peters...

Pastor Peters,
I read via Feedly (RSS feed)far away in Minnesota. I always enjoy it. A good balance of Christian / Lutheran / Pastoral...ponderings!
