Accepting the Post-a-day challenge!


The other day I read about an initiative that WordPress (my blog host) is promoting: they are encouraging bloggers to commit to make either at least one post a day, or one post a week.

I’ve been posting practically every day since I started, since I’m posting almost all my daily homilies. So, I might as well go ahead and commit to making it every day!

Interestingly, over the past two days my blog has seen more traffic than ever. My two most visited posts are the one about the 70th anniversary of foundation of the Legion of Christ, and, in first place… my poll about when you are taking down your Christmas decorations!

I more or less expected the former, but the latter caught me completely by surprise. According to the statistics that WordPress provides me, lots of people are using search engines to look up “when to take down Christmas decorations”, and I guess the poll catches people’s eye – although not that many people actually voted.

    Well, I am one of the voters to your poll. My answer – the 7th of Jan, a day after Epiphany. It’s funny that people need to hit a search engine to know when to bring down the Christmas Tree decorations. I live in S.E Asia, India to be precise, here we even put up a star in every Catholic home during Christmas…don’t know if it’s the same with you.

    Yeah, I’m trying to stick with the challenge a ‘Post-a-day’ hope it works out. 🙂

    Happy New Year and God Bless!

    • Thanks for your comment! I’m going to take my own decorations down this weekend, with the end of the liturgical season of Christmas. As far as stars go, here usually people either put a star or an angel on top of their Christmas tree.

      Good luck with your daily posts! I like the Hanukkah video you posted about. I think I’ll link to it too.

      Happy New Year to you too, and God bless!
