    Matt, do you mean that these are the most searched for psalms in the blogosphere rather than the most blogged psalms? Or are these the psalms you searched for in the blogosphere? Do you understand the difference I am suggesting?

  2. mattdabbs says:

    Sure, these are the psalms that are mentioned in blog posts the most. It would be interesting to find out which are most searched for. I would think the list would be pretty similar. I know I get a lot of hits from people searching for Psalm 119.

    Matt, do you come to Central Florida Bible Camp to work a week during the summer?

    I emailed you a response but I will post it here to just in case. Our week starts June 10 but I don’t believe I will be there.
