When he started the blog in 2002, he intended it to be an obligation to help him write more habitually.
In his celebratory post, “10 Years of the Daysman,” Metts shared some statistics about his blogging journey.
“Based on data provided by WordPress, I’ve posted 399 times in the last five years, about six times a month. And I’ve had almost 55,000 page views, over 10,000 a year. That’s about 180 page views per post.” His full post can be viewed at thedaysman.com.
Metts selected the blog’s title, “the daysman,” because it exemplifies how he tries to live. The daysman is “an old English word for an advocate, literally one who stands with you in your day,” he explains in his blog. “The word appears in Job (KJV) 9:32-34. The sense in which I understand it, and use it, is as someone who helps others say what they need to say, or want to say.”
In the next few months, Metts plans to publish some collections of posts on different themes as trade books. However, he writes, his motive remains the same. “It’s to develop my craft so I can serve my readers and glorify my father, as a good steward of my gifts and calling.”
Metts hopes to continue writing blog posts as a service to his craft and his readers. Read more at thedaysman.com.
