Happy Birthday, Scarlet Letters!

As you’ve probably guessed by now, today is what you might call a “red-letter” day. That’s because exactly one year ago, I posted the introduction to the Big Box series and thus, Scarlet Letters was born. The rest, of course, is history.

I’m not going to write today about the events of the past year (though there were certainly some doozies!). Instead I’m going to write about you – my readers, commenters and followers. Without you, Scarlet Letters would not be where it is today. The first month of its existence, Scarlet Letters received an average of 37 views a day; last month it received 99, and at the height of the Doug Phillips scandal in November, it received 187. In fact it’s been viewed nearly 26,000 times by people in 93 different countries! I know that’s not much in internet terms – but it’s much more than I ever expected. So, thank you, one and all, for your dedication and patience, and visiting Hester’s corner of the internet not just once, but thousands of times.

I’d especially like to thank Dee and Deb at The Wartburg Watch, as well as many of their regular commenters, for inspiring me to give this little blog wings (as well as letting me write a guest post); the staff at A Cry for Justice for crossposting the Big Box; and Jeff S., who was my very first follower and has been Scarlet Letters’ all-round best friend on the internet. (Visit his blog here or in the sidebar at Steady On.)

And finally, for your reading pleasure, here are Scarlet Letters’ top ten most viewed posts of 2013-2014:

1. Patriarchy Never Sleeps
2. The Big Box
3. The Wise Woman’s Guide to Blessing Her Husband’s Vision – The Pink Half
4. The Proof Is in the…Chalice?
5. Women and Children First!
6. Seven Bible Truths Violated by Christian Dating
7. A Home School Vision of Victory
8. Sleeping Beauty and the Five Questions, Part 1: Blurring the Lines
9. What to Expect from a Twelve-Year-Old
10. How to Think Like a Christian

So…who wants some cake? 😉
