A little insight into the life of seminarians from various dioceses preparing for ministry as Roman Catholic priests, including daily activities, personal interests, special events, the spiritual life, news from the seminary, and almost whatever comes to our minds!

Thanks for visiting.

I don't think it's any secret that there are many marvels to the internet. As well, I don't think it's any secret that Google.com (our gracious hosts, here at Blogger.com) has done quite a bit to make many handy tools and web services available for free.

One such service that Google offers is the ability to track visits to a website; that is, we can track how many visits we receive to our blog, how each visit got here (directly, by a search engine [and by searching for what], from another website, etc...), etc... Well, so I was checking our results late tonight (it is break, so I don't feel too guilty about staying up late) and noticed that we had a spike recently.

After investingating, I noticed that this was due in large part to one of our faithful readers referencing SPS and what a great ("excellent") seminary it is, and providing a link to this blog so others could see for themselves. (To you who did this, thank you very much. We always appreciate a good reputation, as well as more readers!)

As I was looking at the statistics, however, I noticed that we had a number of visits to the blog from an online polling site. That poll is ultimately a contest among blog readers for the best blog, according to category. Apparently, last year, we received one vote for "Best Blog by Clergy/Religious/Seminarian". As well, I discovered that our Future Priests of the Third Millennium blog has been nominated again this year under the same category. Thank you for your support and please pray for us!

Hey! That was me (I think)! :) I posted to WDTPRS with your blog and yes, called it "excellent", which it is. Thanks for letting me (us) know that it meant something and folks have visited. The blog really does keep getting better and better. There is a great variety of interesting posts. Keep up the good work!
