New Title, New Look

leave a comment »

And three years in, a little focus seems possible…

I was only guessing at direction when I blundered into blogging in February of 2006. Not wanting to be boxed-in, I chose the most non-committal of titles: Monte Asbury’s Blog.

It has taken years to develop a sense of why I am here. I’m sure it will continue to change. But it looks like, now, I know enough to express a more descriptive name. The About, the profile, and other explanatory pieces will catch up soon; they’ll describe more of what it means.

Most surprising, in this three-year blogging experience, has been the warmth and the brilliance of the friends met on the web.  Thank you for what you have taught me, fellow readers and writers.

I pray that The Least, First will be a source of fuel for the fires that so obviously burn in your hearts. Your thoughts have often ignited mine, and I am grateful.

A snapshot of 100 visits

with one comment


Now here is something that amazes me. Sitemeter maps the location of the servers through which people come to visit this blog (though it doesn’t know who or precisely where they themselves are). This map shows the previous 100 visits as of mid-afternoon CST on September 15, 2007 (the most recent visitor’s server is red, the next nine are green, and the rest are white).

I never imagined that so many friendships would come from comparing notes with readers and bloggers on three or four continents.  Thank you, friends!
