Thanks to My Readers in 2022

It was an interesting year on the ChosenRebel Blog. Visitors came from 149 countries and for the 7th year in a row, the number of new visitors went up. Interestingly, none of the 2022 articles topped the top ten reads of the year. One that did make the top ten was written back in 2010! (Older Men Teaching Younger Men) How do people find these things? My only explanation is that some of you shared them and others found them and passed them on. Thanks.

In the Top 10 “Countries”:

  • USA
  • Unknown Region – this is a first time appearance, more and more people are encrypting their online presence.
  • United Kingdom
  • Canada
  • Ireland
  • Philippines
  • Nigeria
  • China
  • Australia
  • India

Two Surprises:

One, the new “Unknown Region”. This reflects a growing concern for privacy among people searching on line. Our world is becoming less trusting and who can blame it. Cyber crime is on the rise and taking on a more vicious character almost every day.

Two, the presence of China in the top 10. That was a shocker to find out. Pray that the articles read or downloaded would encourage many to place their faith in Christ, or encourage others to greater faith, and all to greater glory of Christ.

So, a big thanks to all my readers and the ministries that have picked up some of the articles and pushed them out to people in need. It is humbling that in a little corner of the internet, over 400, 000 views, and fast approaching half a million “pages” have been read. My goals for the new year are:

  1. To continue to tell the truth even when it hurts.
  2. To serve the larger body of Christ with integrity and compassion.
  3. To write more biblical commentary on current events.
  4. To finish up Book 1 of the Poetry Project.
  5. To cross the half a million views marker.
  6. To write a new post every third day or so, or a minimum of 100 new posts in 2023.
  7. To increase the interaction with readers.

Three ways you can help:

  1. Pray for this outreach. I hope it is pretty obvious, but if it isn’t let me make it clear. I believe in prayer. ChosenRebel is committed to bring glory to Christ and joy to His people. Pray that God would help me to do that.
  2. Share links to your friends on your social network apps, whatever they are. Everything is free. There is no cost to anything on the site, and I have eliminated outside advertising on the site. There are literally thousands of articles and even more pages, documents, charts, summaries, book reviews and other aids that perhaps will be of benefit to your friends and family. Share the link with them and let God do the rest. That’s all I do.
  3. If you find something helpful (or unhelpful!), comment on it. I’m not just interested in “amens.” I’m interested in conversation, the wisdom of my readers, the companionship of a fellowship interacting over the Scriptures in ways that will expand our horizons of the greatness of God. There are no little people. We all matter, and I would love to hear from you. The comment box is always immediately below the article or immediately below other people’s comments. Join the conversation.

Enjoy this New Year. May the next 365 days (if God gives us all of them) be Christ-saturated and joy-filled and may your heart grow to love Him more with each passing day until that day when we see Him face to face.
