Pewsitter Bump

The Bear noticed an anomoly in his stats. It seems the conservative Catholic news aggregator Pewsitter featured "The Oracle of Santa Marta" near the top of their page. In red. Above some guy named Fr. Z. So, needless to say, the Bear shall be insufferable until his numbers return to blog life-support levels.

A friend reminded him that Bears who come to the attention of the powers-that-be can go from celebrity to "problem bear" overnight. Just ask Bruno.

Now the Bear has to get back to planning his line of merchandise. Frozen horsemeat dinners, storybooks, backpacks, stuffed bears, and his friend Terry suggested a St. Corbinians Bear videogame.

Moderation will go back on just for now.


  1. Congratulations! It's a pleasure to know that perseverance (and merit!) are rewarded now and then, and I'm guessing that the Pewsitter contingent is a little less rumbustious than Voris's following :-) Enjoy!

  2. Jane, funny how you just remarked about the Bear's audience. You can add prophetess to your resume now. (And I'm going to remember "rumbustious." Great word!)

  3. Congrats on the exposure!

  4. It's fun, but this will be the second flash in the pan for the Bear. The audience doesn't stick around, usually. Pretty soon things will settle back down and it will be the Bear and a few good friends. If one or two decide to stay in the enchanted (demented?) forest that is the Bear's neck of the woods, that will be great. Competition is stiff in Catholic blogdom. Plus, can you imagine having hundreds or thousands of readers every day? I'd have to actually think about what I wrote and worry about facts and logic (and grammar). Who needs that?


Moderation is On.
