50K followers on Twitter


Today, Bill Warner became the 50,000th follower of Liturgy on Twitter. And if you understand how twitter works: @Liturgy is included in nearly a thousand lists!

I don’t know if there is a “typical” follower of @Liturgy, Bill has had nearly four decades of experience in the computer industry, with the last two decades as a CEO. His service to the community include board directorships in the Association for Corporate Growth, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Cooperación Ortopédica Americano Nicaragüense and the Triangle Community Foundation’s Entrepreneurial Partnership. Liturgy, this site and blog, the twitter site, and the facebook page, are all about making connections between positive, healthy, intelligent spirituality and the various ordinary and extra-ordinary lives we all lead. I was moved and encouraged by a recent comment in the good discussion on the value of the NRSV:

I enjoy your blog immensely. I only started reading it a few months ago, but it has become one of those blogs where every article is a must-read. For a non-liturgical Protestant seeking more liturgical worship, your blog has been a wonderful find. Thank you for providing this excellent resource.

Thanks to all of you for your support and encouragement.

Is this NZ’s most visited Christian site?

  1. Congratulations, Bosco!
    Here is a teaser: while I am sure that your site is the most visited Christian site based in NZ, is it the Christian site most visited by NZ Christians?

    1. Thanks Peter; I suppose yours is an interesting question. I would guess the answer to be “no”? About 2,500 Kiwis are visiting a month (on average viewing 3 pages each). Following Elizabeth I, “I will not make windows into people’s souls” – I cannot tell using any blogging tools what their religious persuasion is 🙂 There is an underlying point for reflection: how is it that this site, produced on the hoof by someone totally self-taught and in moments of snatched “spare time” is so popular when there are other sites professionally produced and maintained… It’s the internet version of examining what makes worshipping communities attractive. Tomorrow my post will be helping people to set up their own websites, simply and free.
