Go, go, go! ‘A Mighty Fortress’

Go ahead and try not to be moved by this! A Mighty Fortress is Our God, performed by the students at Fountainview Academy–and in the background an image of the Coliseum, scene of human sacrifice to the false god of the Roman state: overcome and brought to nothing by Jesus Christ the Son of God.

For our fortress is built without hands, that no hands can destroy…

Attention! Fellow WordPress Bloggers

I wonder if any of you have had this problem. If so, I wonder if any of you can tell me what has happened, and what, if anything, can be done about it.

In January, February, and March I averaged over 500 Facebook referrals to this blog. In April it was down to just a little over 100, and for May it looks like it won’t even reach the 100 mark. This is a hefty chunk of my readership.

I have no idea what has caused this. Okay, The Chicago Tribune was complaining, weeks ago, that Facebook’s new anti-fake news (anti conservative) algorithm had cost the Trib 40% of its online readership; and other big media outlets had similar complaints. But if that were the cause, you’d think Facebook would’ve gotten rid of that algorithm by now.

You will pardon me for not knowing what an “algorithm” is. As near as I can figure out, it’s something in your computer that takes the place of thinking and decision-making.

So, hey out there! Can anybody give me a hint? Do you know of any way I can get my FB referrals back? Please advise!

Help Save Skimpy Thursday

Because that’s the day my Newswithviews column comes out, and people who read that sometimes wind up visiting the blog, Thursday has long been the big day around here.

Well, this week, for the first time in six years, I forgot to write my column. Which means no one will be coming here from there.

So all I’ve got are you, the hard-core readers. I will write for you as I would write for two hundred.

But if you could send any new readers this way today, I sure would appreciate it!

Guess What I Forgot!

For the first time in six years–six years, 312 weeks!–I have not written a Newswithviews column. So you won’t see one tomorrow, unless they fill the hole with a “best of.” Which I hope they do, because I rely on those columns to attract readers to this blog.

Normally I write these and send them in on Monday, to be published on Thursday.

This week I never even thought of it until a few minutes ago.

Blame it on the weather: went from freezing to sweltering just about overnight. Blame it on Social Security, which has suddenly discovered new ways of harassing us about Aunt Joan’s finances. Just as soon as I crawled out of the tar pit at the bank, I fell into yet another one. Blame it on the Bossa Nova.

And I just don’t have the gas today to whip up a column on such short notice.

Well, I hope they don’t kick me off the team for missing this one game. But if they do, it’ll be that much more time and energy available for books and blogging.
