I Want to Say, "Thank You" - PeteBrookshaw.Com reaches 100,000 Hits!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who have read, commented and supported my site over the years. Way back in July 2006, I launched off with my first few blog posts. I called the Blog, Revolution Earth, and tentatively put a few thoughts up on the web. Have a read of one here. Who would have thought 7 years later, I'd still be offloading my thoughts to a wider audience...

100,000 hits is a bit of a milestone... I don't care much for accolades though. The fact is most of my website hits no doubt come from my Mum and that anonymous Atheist from down the road. Nonetheless, praise God!

What interests me though, is the change in Blog Readership over the last 7 years. When it came to blogging 7 years ago, it was the next best thing since sliced bread. Everyone was blogging. Teenagers were writing blogs about their latest I.T. Gadget, and people were reflecting on their latest journal entries.  Christians were launching blogs quicker than Apple were creating Apps. The blogosphere had well and truly taken off.

Blogging then took a dive in the number of writers (at least from within my realms of influence), as people gave up on the continuous need to update their readers on their particular topic of choice. The blogosphere in a sense became more specialised. People were seemingly reading more articles and websites that were more informative and more specialised. Readers didn't care what you ate for breakfast! Readers for the most part, were not wanting to listen to the dribble of the intricate details of a person's emotional life. They were desiring to read things that will add value to their day. They were wanting to read what interests them, from writers who had some level of credibility within their blogging genre.

Funny enough, this blog is still going. 

So, with that all being said, I still have a few people here and there that are wanting to read what I write. If that continues, I'll continue to write.

I am passionate about people reaching their potential in life. I unashamedly want each and every person on planet earth to choose to follow God's son, Jesus Christ, and live a life that pleases him! I want to see leader's rise up, grow up and stand up to lead their generation to the purposes of God.

If my blogging helps at all towards that end, then I'll keep blogging.

Let me ask you:

What do you seek most from a Blog?

What Blog post has most inspired you?

God bless you and thank you for joining with me, in partnering together with God, in the work of the Gospel!
