They Didn’t Come Running! by Elaine Davenport

WE HIT 400,000 TODAY! WHOO WHOO WHOO!

We had never heard of Blog Traffic School; still don’t know about it. We had to learn things the hard way. The hard way’s not so hard! We did it the old fashioned way…we earned it! There’s lots of software out there: Instant Traffic, Driving Traffic, probably Directing Traffic (lol) etc.

Nothing’s wrong with paying for it. Our way was the s-l-o-w (take a long breath) way.

ARE WE ENDORSING? NOPE! WE JUST SAID: DO YOUR RESEARCH OR DO IT YOURSELF LIKE WE DID!

HOW DO YOU BUILD YOUR BLOG TRAFFIC WITHOUT GOING TO SCHOOL? I DON’T KNOW…We prayed a lot, wrote a lot and stayed up a lot.

You work every day ;one day at a time…but you have to do something or the people will go away and they won’t come back. Google Reader and a great network helps too! I know the other way is much easier; (software with experienced results) more simplistic, less stressful. In fact, I’d recommend the other way…after much serious research has been done.

Today, we celebrate a milestone on the Internet; that is …our Online Christian Coffeehouse has hit the 400,000 mark! The mission will never cease! I’m listing our top five below as many have went out of the ballpark!

1. Phil Driscoll’s Video: Because He Lives ( Set a record in hits in the Thousands!)

2. Hellbound Denial

3. Never Could Have Made It by Marvin Sapp

4. Prophecy, The Next Presidency, The Oil Crisis & George Bush

5. 3 Problems Christians Have by Gene McGuire

It’s been an adventure. Just wanted to say thanks for stopping by, encouragement, persecution, unbelief…whatever….it makes us stronger! That’s a fact. When people write and say: “I hate your country!” We say: “We love you” in our responses.

A voice inside me says: “Wow, must be very painful to throw all that pain around and try to pinpoint it somewhere. Besides, it’s never the person…it’s always the enemy.

So, we put up one little faith blog around 22 months ago at another Blog site and got 1,000 visitors in three months if that. We moved to WordPress and got that many our first couple of days. We tried to adapt to things that people wanted to know about biblically and added 6 more sites and eventually we grew into Cafe Sozo.

But, in the beginning days the most surprising thing is that there literally was “no feedback.” Even from people that we knew. IN fact, very little happened before we added pictures and videos. Also, surprising was the fact, that there was a tie between people who believed and wanted prayers and the people who didn’t believe and wanted us to fall off their computers!

We learned grave lessons of humility and were forced to practice and meditate upon the true meaning of “love your neighbor as yourself!” (WE WON)

WOULD WE DO IT AGAIN?

Yes, we’ll do what we must to further God’s cause even if it means being unpopular. You may soon notice our tackling of subject matter that the body of Christ often avoids…then maybe not…smile…we’ll see. Whatever God’s direction is for us.

P.S. No one broke the door down; but you came…first by 2’s, then by 10’s, then by hundreds, then by thousands…thanks

And thanks for your prayers…Lanie
