Thank you – 28
After a little over two months, I have finally finished blogging the long book of Ecclesiasticus or Sirach. Every time I finish a book of the Bible, I send a thank you blog. I usually post five blogs a day covering about a chapter or so of the biblical books. So far I have posted 4,560 blogs about the individual paragraphs of the first five books of the Torah, Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy, as well as the so-called historical books of Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 Samuel and 2 Samuel, 1 Kings and 2 Kings, 1 Chronicles and 2 Chronicles, Ezra and Nehemiah, Tobit, Judith, Esther, and 1 Maccabees and 2 Maccabees. I have now finished the so-called wisdom literature, the books of Job, the Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, the Book of Wisdom of Solomon, and finally Ecclesiasticus or Sirach. This makes the first 28 books of the Bible that are now complete with a commentary for each paragraph. It has taken me over two years to get this done.
About 360 people have emailed me that they are following this project in some form or another. 121 people receive an email subscription every day. Around 20-30 people look at this site daily, but it has reached as high as 363 people on January 19, 2015, which was also the best week with 554 people that week. The best month was February, 2015, with 1,364 people. This past month, June, 2016, 542 people have visited this site. On June 28, 2016, 40 people visited this site. There have been over 12,770, hits on this blog since its inception. I just want to thank all of you. Word Press sent me a yearly compilation that showed that about 6,800 people from 84 countries visited this web site in 2015.
I realize that 207 of you have left comments, but I have not responded to them. Some of you might want to moderate my comments, which is fine with me. If you want to contact me directly, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since my last thank you note two months ago, 18 people have sent me emails about this blog site. Here is the list of the 18 people with their email addresses on Word Press. Thank you so very much for your kind comments.
