Today our little blog has achieved a notable milestone with post #1500.
If you had told me 5 years ago that we would still be going and published 1500 posts, I probably would have laughed. In fact, such a task would sound rather daunting. But here we are. And here’s what we’ve achieved. Continue reading
As we stand on the brink of 2017, I’m reminded of the words of the famous philosopher Dr. Seuss who said.
“How did it get so late so soon?
It’s night before it’s afternoon.
December is here before it’s June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.

On January 1, 2012, I launched ThePreachersWord with my first post. Today, I’m writing my 1000th post. It’s been an amazing journey.

In the big world of blogging, ThePreachersWord is tiny! According to one source, there are over 152 million blogs on the internet. A new blog is created somewhere every second! And the largest site attracts over 46 million visitors each month! Continue reading
Last week at the Florida College Lectures, I briefly encountered David Tant as we were entering Hutchinson Auditorium. He smiled and said, “I see you’ve still found time to write your blog while you’re down here.”
As an off the cuff response I answered, “Yes. I’m addicted! It’s a habit!” I was kinda joking, but there may be more fact than fiction to my retort. Just ask my wife, Norma Jean! Continue reading
Since I first began ThePreachersWord on January 1, 2012, I have been asked several times, “How do you write all those posts for your blog?’
That’s a good question. Today is post 321. It is also the final day of the Ultimate Blog Challenge, in which I have posted every day in January. So, how have I written 31 posts in January? And 321 Since I began?
Here’s how. Continue reading
