Thank You!

I've just figured out how easy it is to connect to the blogs of other people who comment on web sites that I like. I love finding these things out slowly, because that way maybe I can keep myself busy for the rest of my allotted time. No sense using up all of the good shit all at once!

What I have discovered is that there are a lot of nice blogs out there. Informative, well written, hell, even lots of nice graphics, really entertaining stuff. So my point is, I see a lot of blogs that get fewer comments than I do. I must admit that my first thought was not to bemoan that fact, but to celebrate it as a victory. I felt like I'd just gotten a medal! Validation! Isn't that what we all want? Just a little acceptance? It's what I want, I won't lie to you.

So, thank you, my faithful double-dozen. Thank you very much!

I remember I read somewhere that the average readership of a typical blog is 1.
You have 24? You sure you're not double- or triple-counting the same people?

It's a lonely job. But somebody's got to do it.

A couple of hits everyday are me, for one thing, and I've never made a scientific study of the whole pattern, but the counter seems to go up everyday at a pretty good clip. I mean, it's no "Boing-Boing" but the hits are there, somehow.

Also, I figure four or five readers for everyone who leaves a comment, so the hits seem real. I deeply appreciate the visits, and the comments.

Fred, I love coming to your place and will add you to my recommended sites. Also, try this guy. He is very good.

Thanks, Cletis. I'm working on putting that feature on this blog too, and you'll be there, with a Gold Star!
