It’s been five years since I first blogged. Oddly, the first post wasn’t really the first.

It’s funny how you remember things. I thought I’d been blogging for longer than I’d been Orthodox. But my chrismation in the Orthodox Church in America predates my first post by three months. Fascinating.

Let’s look back on the last five years. Some of my top posts by hits:

I consider this an aberration, yet it continues to be my most popular post. Quite humbling for someone who considers one of his primary subjects to be his Orthodox Christian faith.
Saint Emily
I am considerably prouder of this post. Previous to writing this, I was unable to find a comprehensive description of St Emily’s life. I compiled this one from various references to her in the lives of other saints, such as my namesake, St Basil the Great, and his sister, St Macrina the Younger. This article served as the basis for the article in OrthodoxWiki.
New Navy Uniforms
Not sure why my quote with a cropped photograph is so popular.

To be continued, with a look back at my favorite posts. If anyone still reads this, you may nominate your own favorites in the comments.

    I’d definitely go for the article on the doctrine of creation, but I haven’t read all of the posts over the past FIVE(!) years.

    Interesting, my blog also started on my birthday … back in 2002 … the blog’s birthday, not mine …

    … everyone knows I’m older than dirt!

    btw, congrats on an excellent ongoing blog!

    I would rather like to nominate the entire narrative of your posts over these 5 years. I have begun to understand that so many things are a some of its parts, much like the beauty of our chosen faith.

    Happy Anniversary Basil, I look forward to 5 more years of discourse!

    I’ve enjoyed many of your posts! One of my favorites, though, is the article about the pepper spray incident.
