Who's reading?



So Wednesday I wrote about what keywords people were Googling and then ending up here at deannashrodes.com as a result of and it was rather interesting, at least I thought it was.  I have often mentioned about those of you regularly reading out there from "Seattle to Singapore".  Yesterday happened to be a day nobody was reading from either place, which is rare!   But I decided to track where our visitors were from yesterday.  I thought I would share where folks were reading from yesterday and I, for one, never cease to be amazed

Thank you for coming here.  I realize you can read whatever you want and there are a million things grabbing for your time and attention but some of you still come here. The vast majority of you never say anything, you just read.  And that's cool.  I'm perfectly fine (and honored) by those of you who silently check out what I have to say. 

By the way, this list does not include those who are exclusively reading on facebook, when it rolls over and publishes there.  I believe quite a number of regulars started reading there instead, for convenience sake.  The only thing I don't like about that is that pictures sometimes don't print there and the videos posted never carry over.  But many more people are reading there instead now that I schedule it to publish there.

 So here you go, yesterday's peeps checkin out the blog were from...

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no

This Could Have Ruined Everything... (But It Didn't!)

 No one would ever guess what happened to me this weekend in Jacksonville, Florida...so I'm going to tell you. :) As I was preaching at the Fearless Tour at New Hope Assembly of God this weekend,  I got choked up, literally. For probably 2-3 minutes I coughed profusely and greatly struggled. Then I drank some water and kept preaching. Everyone was gracious to give me a few moments to get my bearings. If you were there, you'll remember it! What no one realized at the time was that I swallowed a bug that flew right in while I was preaching! So disgusting! I said nothing because I was at a point in the sermon where I was really connecting and I knew if I said, "I swallowed a bug," everyone would either laugh profusely or be really concerned, or start feeling sorry for me.  And at that point whey wouldn't be thinking about the message anymore, but the fact that I had just swallowed a bug. They would then imagine what it would be like, and feel grossed out which

Why You Should Never Hijack a Comment Thread
Social media etiquette 101

One surefire way to kill your influence in social media and wear out your welcome fast is to become involved in derailing somebody’s comment thread with your own agenda. Networking and hijacking aren’t the same thing. It’s surprising how many people don’t understand that this is a guarantee for tearing down a platform as quickly as you build it. Passion is good, even necessary. I appreciate people's zeal for their personal core values. What is not appreciated is the attempt at a redirection of a comment thread when the comment has little or nothing to do with an original post or is twisted at best. Social media provides ample opportunity for all of us to share what’s important to us on our own platform. Eliciting others’ responses and developing connections largely depends on our ability to communicate and compel. Some people are open to receiving private communication from others although they aren’t always able to answer personally or at length. But hijacking a comment threa
