No, this post is not about my daughter’s favorite candy.  Earlier this week The Fat Pastor had its 2000th visitor.  The Fat Pastor is not crashing anyone’s server at this point, but 2000 is pretty cool.

My busiest day was still the day I emailed all my friends with the link, but February has already become the busiest month.  The Fireproof conversation and the story involving Will Deuel’s struggle with the Board of Ordained Ministry were two spikes – with over 60 hits on those days.

I started Fat Pastor to talk about two main things – the fact that I am fat, and my opinions as a pastor.  In the last month or so more of my postings have been about theology than about fitness.  To tell you the truth, I’ve kind of dropped the ball with my struggle to become the Fit Pastor.

I went about two months strong, then got busy during Christmas.  Then I got sick.  Now I’m in CPE, which means I have to be at a hospital 35 hours a week while I am a full-time pastor.  This has not left me much time to go work out.  I had set a goal to run a 5K race in March.  I’m not sure that is going to happen, and I am pretty disappointed by that.

As of this moment I have 2021 hits.  I’ve been enjoying this, and I hope readers have enjoyed it too.  

Thanks, and God Bless,

Robb McCoy, “The Fat Pastor”

1,000th visitor!

So if this were a store, there would be baloons and confetti falling.  I just checked my “blog stats” and it told me that there have been 1,004 visits to read what the Fat Pastor has to say!  Pretty exciting stuff.  The busiest day on this site had about 70 views – the day after I emailed all my friends with the address.  The second busiest day had about 65, the day I posted the address on the d3hoops.com message boards. 

I am really having fun with this, and the positive response – especially the comments – mean a lot to me.  So, thanks for reading my site.  Sorry though, no prizes.

My next post will be coming soon.  It is going to be a response to a letter to the editor I read in the Pantagraph, Bloomington’s daily newspaper.  It was from some guy that apparantly takes great offense to anyone that says, “Happy Holidays.”  I really, really do not understand that.  So, feel free to leave any pre-post comments.

Happy holidays!
