  1. Not doing a “Morning News Wrap” every day now Peter?

    • Adrian, it was an experiment. I have being doing the morning news wrap for the last six years on Facebook. I thought this year I would post it to my blog to see if I could expand its readership. From the stats that wordpress give me, the clicks I was receiving on the MNW didn’t make it worth the extra effort. So you will just have to read it on Facebook. Although I am considering starting a MNW specific site.

      • Thanks Peter.

        As the complete text was sent to us via e-mail there was never a need to go to the blog except to comment so I’m thinking yes the clicks there would be minimal.

        Interesting as it was though it’s not enough to get me back onto Facebook.

        God bless and see you in heaven,
