Unlike many bloggers, I'm not a professional writer. My background as a former Protestant Clergy turned Catholic sans employment is littered with studies in history, Church history, and theology from an Evangelical Protestant POV. I'm usually a better speaker than writer. But, since I also don't like being in front of people, I see no need to set up a camera and impose my moving image on a medium already filled to the brim with inexcusable images.
But even though I'm not a wordsmith by trade, every now and again I notice I actually wrote something well. I said it in a way that made sense, didn't ramble, got to the point, and was enjoyable to read. As I've said before, the blog is basically to be a sounding board for me talking to myself, and keeping my mind as fresh as I can. That's it. So it comes as a pleasant surprise when I see something I wrote attracting attention. And more, when I notice it was well written. Not to boast, but here it is. I don't know why the sudden uptick in views, but at least it wasn't painful to read.
