I’ve been encouraged by the number of folks that read my blog. I had no idea that people had nothing better to do. According to the blog’s statistics since its inception in 2006, I’ve written 496 posts, received about 517,300+ hits and 7219 comments, and 33,746 pieces of spam. The blog averages about 900 visitors each day although a good handful are from weirdos that google “beautiful depraved Asian cuties.” What a huge disappointment it must be for them to stumble onto a pastor’s blog!
I want to thank you for reading my blog and I do hope that the blog is a source of encouragement to you in some way or another. I have certainly enjoyed the opportunity to share my vomitaceous thoughts and through this blog, connecting with people both in Seattle and around the world, Christians and non-Christians, bloggers and non-bloggers, and people that share some of my convictions and others that don’t.
Now that I’ve kissed your arse and buttered you up, I am inviting my blog subscribers, readers, supporters, antagonists, surfers, and stalkers to show some love for this blog by making a small donation to help us fight global poverty through the newly formed secure link [via Paypal].
We’ve been only able to share our vision through this blog, Facebook, emails, and word of mouth, but nevertheless, we are excited for the growing momentum. As of today, we’ve already raised $20,400 in donations and pledges. Our hope is to raise an additional $79,600 to total $200,000 [incl. our pledge] before we officially launch the poverty organization in January 2009 [tentatively]. Through the vision of the org, we know we can help make a significant difference in the world.
If you enjoy this blog, would you support our vision by making a donation and sharing this vision with others? If you’d rather mail in your donation, simply contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
* If you want your donations to be tax-deductible, you’ll need to wait another 30-45 days before our official issuance. If you mail in a check, we can also hold your check until then.
