One of the things I do like about WordPress is its capability to spout statistics. (Though I do miss the world map of hits in blogspot.) Thanks to the tracking of origins, I learned that my post on a cryptozoology art exhibit sparked a bit of controversy elsewhere that looked suspiciously like what I get in the St Blogosphere comboxes.
The archives are now classified going back to late April 2006, about one quarter of the content of the blog. Out of about 600 posts since then, Vatican II documents account for a plurality of 214. Neil has contributed nearly one-fourth — 139. Liturgy (excluding Sacrosanctum Concilium) is the topic of 83 posts. The vague and nebulous “commentary,” which includes both church and secular news has 82 posts. Astronomy is covered 60 times.
I’m happy to provide a learned and spiritual commentator such as Neil his happy fraction of posts. I’ll repeat that any reader is welcome to contact me by this comment box or by e-mail to make a sensibly Catholic comment or initiate a discussion in some way. In fact, I repeat my standing offer to any reform2 or traditionalist folks out there: let’s take a single topic and have a back-and-forth discussion on it. Simulpost on your blog if you have one. A few other folks in the blogosphere have already tiptoed into that water. C’mon; don’t be afraid.
I have switched over to the new blogger format on my blogs and I like the way I have been able to classify posts on it. It doesn’t really matter anymore what order things were posted in, I can now find all the posts on a particular topic if I want. A great thing.
I haven’t been shy, Todd. If you make a point that prompts a discussion, I’ll post and I’ll track you back.
I thought it was kind of funny, thinking of reform of the reform. When Benedict was elected Pope, many people said they picked a really old guy to hold the seat for a few years until they can elect a “real” candidate.
I remember the last Pope who was cinsidered a “seatholder”. That was John XXIII :)
Can you say: “Vatican III” :)
So, Tony, why a “Vatican III” and what do you think it will include/entail/uphold/unfold/offer-up/blow-up…
[I, for one, would like to see a weekly “Armchair Liturgist” question. They seem to get the most response. How ’bout one on: Advent Wreath displays in the sanctuary: what to do?]
