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.
