Happy Easter

First, I will be on retreat this week with Catholic Volunteers In Florida. I will do my best to maintain the site while I am away but there is a chance that the rosary count and prayer requests may be delayed until I return on Saturday.

This also means that orders from the Scriptural Rosary Store will be delayed. I will not be able to ship any orders until Monday, 4/20/09.

Finally, you may have noticed that the weekly rosary count was down by about 50. This is probably due to the fact that I had to quit advertising on Yahoo. Before last week, I was advertising on both Yahoo and Google. The budget was set at $2 per day for both so the total budget was $4 per day. The average click cost on Google is $0.07 per click. The average click cost on Yahoo is $0.09 per click. So we have lost about 22 new visitors per day last week because I could no longer afford to advertise on Yahoo.

If you don't already know, I serve as a Catholic Volunteer and I live off a very small stipend. I rely heavily on store purchases and/or donations in order to advertise the Scriptural Rosary Site. Unfortunately, at present, these do not cover the costs of advertising.

If you want to help so that we can continue to attract new visitors and spread awareness and devotion to the Holy Rosary you have a few options. First, you can spread the word yourself by telling friends and family or asking your priest to post a notice in your church bulletin. If you blog or use My Space, Facebook or the like, please advertise the Scriptural Rosary. Second, every purchase from the Scriptural Rosary Store helps with costs. Finally, if you are able, a small donation goes a long way. Every dollar donated will allow us to advertise to 25 new people.

Thank you all for your prayers and participation in the Scriptural Rosary site.

God Bless and Happy Easter!
