Fractured Faith Is 1000 Posts Old

Today marked our 1000th post on Fractured Faith. We started the blog back in May 2017 and, back then, had no idea what to expect. Fionnuala encouraged me to share my writing with the online world as both a form of personal therapy and to encourage others that there is always hope, no matter how bleak your circumstances might seem. I hope I’ve succeeded to some degree on both counts.

In that time there have been highs and lows, both on the writing front and in respect of work and family life. I’ve always sought, however, to remain true to the blog’s ethos of remaining as open and transparent as possible. Some topics I’ve had to refrain from talking about for personal reasons but I’ve strived to be as honest as I could about a range of other everyday matters.

I know I’m not everybody’s cup of tea but, by and large, the response has been a largely positive one from you, my fellow bloggers. Some posts have soared high, others sunk without trace but I’ve always felt at home on WordPress, more so than the other social media platforms I’ve embraced in order to promote my writing. WordPress will always be my first home, my safe place.

I’d just to thank you all again, followers old and new for dropping by when you can to read my words. Fionnuala and the kids will forever be in your debt as well for ensuring I have somewhere I can offload my rambled thoughts. Who needs therapy when you have WordPress? I will always be grateful for the support and encouragement I receive on a daily basis via your comments.

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 15 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

  1. Congratulations on being such a prolific writer. That is a lot of chances to piece together something wholesome and meaningful that comes from the beauty of a blessed mind among the people.

    Have you considered compiling parallel pieces and creating a collection of your words to put out to the general public, not just those interested in the blogging world?

    I’m sitting at almost 500 posts and I feel like I have a wealth of information that could come together to be something really special. Just from the words you have shared in the less than a year I have been exposed to your blog I would say you have something worthy of creating a book around.

    Your thoughts. Your expression. Your ability to be so darn relatable.

    I really believe a good book could come from that.

  3. You were literally one of the first to welcome me when I joined the blogging world in late 2017, and didn’t judge me for a second, which made me think others might be as nice. Congrats on 1,000 posts and more followers than populations of small towns! Here’s to 1,000 more!

  4. I just stopped by to wish you a thousand more. πŸ˜€ Congratulations. I bet if you would to collect all of them and jam them on a paper, you’d get a pretty long book. 1 000? I call that dedication. πŸ˜€
