A BLOGGING MINISTRY

In the beginning I started blogging as a way to voice my thoughts and opinions, but more and more I’m seeing it as ministry that has really blessed me. My stat-tracker at the bottom of this page tells me that I can expect between four and five hundred visitors on this site everyday. Weekends are a little less but some weekdays I may have over 500 hits. That’s a lot of people that stop by every day for one reason or another. I got to thinking that there are probably 3 different kinds of visitors to this site (and every other blog for that matter).

  1. SEARCHERS: Those that come to this site for the first time from search engines like Google, Yahoo and MSN. They are brought here because of a search they’ve done. My prayer for them is that when they make a stop by here for the first time they’ll find something that catches their attention. They’ll read something about God, His church, faith, love, marriage or family and they’ll want to know more.

  2. LURKERS: I love lurkers. They are the majority around here. A lurker is someone who is a regular reader but never makes a comment. They’re more comfortable being anonymous, hiding behind the scenes and not making their presence known. They don’t leave comments and that’s absolutely fine. I’m blessed by lurkers and welcome them all. I do find it interesting that this month I’ve had two regular readers, who are lurkers, come out of hiding and email me to say hello.

  3. COMMENT MAKERS: You guys know who you are. You are the ones that read and choose to leave a comment. Let me say from the bottom of my heart, I love your comments. I read everyone and sometimes read them twice. Although I don’t always respond to every comment, I never take anything you say lightly. You encourage me, challenge me and strengthen me by your comments. You make me smile when you say something funny and sometimes I even laugh out loud. While I’ve enjoyed getting to know many of you through the blogging community, I know that many of us will not meet face to face till someday when we enjoy heaven together. And that will be alright, because we’ll have plenty of time to get to know one another then.

You know … I’m really looking forward to heaven …

    There are so many good reasons for people to come to your blog. One you left out becasue of your humility is you offer something for a wide audience. There are some of us who know you and enjoy the updates of your life. We also appreciate the frank topic selections. Your blog relflects you and your ministry. Of course it is going to be a ministry. Some blogs are just personal journals of sorts. Some are like ours a mixture of good thought and silliness. Others are there to argue cause that is their focus. You have a healthy mixture of things that brings people together. Thanks for the offering.

    I too look forward to heaven, but, you know there are a number of people we have been allowed to know and old relationships are strengthened though this medium. Keep it up.

    It is so fun to meet fellow bloggers here and now! I can just see the ‘blogger house’ in Heaven – it’ll be full!

    I’ve thought about this a lot in the past, Trey, and I have basically broken it into the three following categories:

    1. The Curious, those who are interested in things spiritual and happen to come across your page while searching for something.

    2. The Watchers, for all you “Highlander” fans, those who know you are there and watch what you write so they can have record of it.

    3. The Seekers, those who are seeking healty Christian relationships and spiritual growth, those who long for community and sharing their faith.

    I appreciate your page, Trey, I find lots of encouraging and challenging thoughts. THANKS

    I am going to make a comment so I don’t feel like a lurker.
    I think I have a lot of lurkers on my blog. I have random people tell me they like my blog but never leave a comment. I need to get a tracker but I think I would become obsessed with seeing how many read.
    Thanks for always keeping it new and positive.

    Profound Comment.

    There, I left a profound comment because I have mostly been a lurker lately. I may account for 5-10 of those counts a day depending on your post and the comments people are leaving. I enjoy your posts and the comments they produce.

    Have a great day!

    Trey, when you said you and Lea would not be able to visit with me while on the trip to Bristol, I thought the same thing – “well, at least I will get to meet you two in heaven.”

    I thoroughly enjoy reading your blogs and sometimes I think I might have something to add, but mostly I read and appreciate your thoughts and the work you are doing.

  8. john dobbs says:

    Trey, you have a great blog. Thanks for sharing all of your thoughts with so many.

    Keep up the great work!

    You have a great ministry going here. With all the bad stuff online, I’m glad God is using you to spread His word this way. Thanks for all you do!

  10. DJG says:

    Yeah, see you made me laugh out loud with your cartoon in yesterday’s post. But I didn’t comment.

    I think we should have a monthly bloggers breakfast when we get to heaven. I’ll make the coffee!!

  11. Greg says:

    Loved yesterday’s cartoon! There are blogs we read and occasionally come back to. There are blogs we read once or twice, or for a week or two, and never return again. And there are blogs that are just worthwhile … such as yours! I, too, love this community.

    Donna: How about a little Dr. Pepper for those of us who don’t drink coffee?

  12. That Girl says:

    I wonder if I can have caffeine in Heaven? If so, I’d rather have the DP.

  13. David says:

    I prefer to think of it as loitering…

  14. NB says:

    I’m very glad to have found your blog. It’s always a bright spot in my day. Keep blogging!

  15. TREY MORGAN says:

    Caffeine … Yes. In fact everything there will be fattening but won’t make you fat. I’m planning on eating Krispy Kreme Donuts and whole milk for the first forever.

    Trey please! pray for me with encouragement, as I feel like some people have charisma and people come to them and want to worship with them, and then I feel like I am not even here on your blog man. I have not heard from anyone from my church in charlotte and it hurts big time man, I mean I heard from the preacher and my friend one time in months, but why dont they encourage me, I know im not 100% well, I know I gas one from time to time, I know I have this problem, but insn’t your home church supposed to support your ministry? and I am sorry for posting this on your blog and not emailing you, but maybe some one will talk to me! God Bless! Bro!

    Anonymous,I am sorry you are not getting the encouragement you need now. You must not be in the same congregation I am in Charlotte because I do not know you. You will be added to my prayer list until I can meet you and then can encourage you personally.

  20. TREY MORGAN says:

    Brandon … hang in there buddy. Sometimes it’s not as bad as you think. I’m praying that things will get better for you buddy!
