The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
Madison Square Garden can seat 20,000 people for a concert. This blog was viewed about 67,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Madison Square Garden, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Forgive me if this appears intrusive, would you care to share what has prompted you to cease this work?
I am over seventy, the father of six surviving children and watching them start and nurture their own families with wonder and love.
A major part of my life has been to train and practice Psychiatry as a medical doctor and all that while operating as an active worshipper of and believer in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and I accept the Father of Yahushua Messiah so obviously am presented with intellectual indigestion.
Most contemporary psychology and psychiatry utterly denies the spirit dimension of human nature.
I am in the process of gathering the immense amount of preparatory data to write a 21st century compendium of human psychology taking account of the physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual nature of human nature.
Preparing for public exposure, I have been sharing conversations about controversial topics on the Guardian Australia website. It is still a traumatic experience but I think I am developing some skill in self-control, fortitude and turning the other cheek.
I wondered if the comments part of this sort of blog eventually persuaded you to stop.
Dear Dr. Chalmers,
Thank you. Comments are sometimes very difficult to take, but that hasn’t been my primary reason for not blogging here of late. Most of it is because I write for a blog called PenAddict, and I’ve committed to a post per week there. Another reason is I just wasn’t sure trying to combine all my interests in one blog was a good idea, plus the name “Scribalishess” doesn’t exactly evoke “scholarly.” So, I’ve thought about renaming the blog and limiting it to Hebrew Bible topics. But, I’m very busy right now—I teach full time, I’m working on an MA in creative writing, and, as I said, writing for another blog.
I may come back to this blog and add a post or two occasionally.
