Advertising Update

How did you learn about our scriptural rosary site?

Please post a comment and let us know.

I need your help more than ever before getting the word out.

Why? Well... In the beginning I advertised on both Google and Yahoo. Many if not most found the site while searching information about the rosary.

If you don't already know, I'm a volunteer working in Florida. It is a one year commitment. I am paid a very small stipend. After a while, I had to pause the Yahoo advertising. Yesterday, I had to pause Google advertising. Both due to a shortage of funds.

Only 17 rosaries were prayed yesterday... our lowest count in a long time.

I thank all of you for your prayers and participation. For those interested in our mission to spread awareness and devotion to the Most Holy Rosary, I really need you. Please help spread the word. Blogs, emails to friends (no spam please), word of mouth, church bulletins and anything else you think may work. If you find something that works well please let me know and I will share it with everyone else.

Perhaps when my volunteer service ends I will be able to resume the advertising again.

I wrote this post particularly for those that follow the daily count. If yesterday was any indication, it looks like it may be down for a while.

Thanks again to EVERYONE that uses our site to pray the Holy Rosary. I am eternally grateful for your participation and prayers.

Bill, thanks for illuminating the situation regarding advertising. I found the site while looking for information on praying the rosary, and have stayed with it almost every day due to the way you've brought scripture into the act of praying the rosary.

I'll continue to promote the site to family, friends, and communities in hopes of boosting your numbers, and I'll keep you in my prayers! God Bless You in your work!

Thanks Joe! I do care about the numbers because it is a good indicator to me that the site is accomplishing its mission. Your help is greatly appreciated!

However, I have not lost site of the fact that God hears ALL of our prayers and he doesn't need to follow the count.

All of our prayers, no matter how great or small the count, make a difference.

Sometimes I get a little too caught up in the numbers. I just wanted everyone to understand that I haven't lost sight of the bigger picture.

Thanks again Joe for your help and for sharing your comments.

I specifically searched for an online audio-version of the Rosary I could pray along with each morning. It took a bit of searching before yours came up,though. On the other hand, of all those I found, this is the best.
