OIJ Has Over 5,000 Email Subscribers!

over5000I’m excited and flattered that One In Jesus now has over 5,000 email subscribers!

After the first 8 years of blogging, the site had about 1,000 email subscribers. But in the last 2 years, interest has accelerated so that email subscriptions are rising. 1,000 new subscribers joined in only the last couple of months.

I’ve also noticed a dramatic increase in Facebook friend requests from around the world. It seems that OIJ has gained the interest of missionaries and church leaders in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.

(Frankly, it’s a little terrifying to know that so many people are reading what I write.) This is far more than I ever anticipated. I mean, when I started this, I was hoping to hit 200 page views per day. It’s now closer to 1,500, not counting email, WordPress, and RSS subscribers.

None of this would have been possible without the readers and especially the readers who comment. Unmoderated comments allows for real-time, lively conversations that can’t be found many other places. And we couldn’t operate without moderation if the readers weren’t responsible and civil. In today’s social media, that’s rare and surely one of major reasons for the growth of One In Jesus. In fact, it’s proof that we can disagree and still talk to and learn from each other.

Many thanks to all the readers for sharing with friends and to the commenters for helping to make this a place where disagreements can be discussed as the Scriptures instruct —

(2 Tim. 2:24-25 ESV)  24 And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil,  25 correcting his opponents with gentleness.

    It all starts because you say things worth reading, Jay

    Congrats. One of the things that sets this venue apart is its honest and open dialogue with people that aren’t out to crush others. No Mack trucks here. Good people with an excellent foster.

    I enjoy reading Jay’s writing and appreciate his taking time to share his thoughts with others. I’m one who has on occasion disagreed with comments of others. I hope I’ve always done so kindly and humbly but can’t guarantee this.
