It is an odd thing…

June 21, 2010

when you find out who is reading your blog.

While with my cousins this last week, I was reminded by one that she reads here fairly regularly and informed by another that she also reads. Another said that she would like to start reading. Hi cuz!

I started this blog, I think, about four years ago. Give or take a year. It was a way to journal that involved speedy typing instead of handwriting. It was a way to put real thoughts down on virtual paper without needing a pleather bound book with a tiny gold lock and key.

I haven’t jumped on the “monetize your blog” action in anyway. I have neither the readership nor personal motivation to attract a readership to such a “monetizing” result. I cannot even seem to stick to a regularly scheduled blog posting calendar.

Some days I want to sit and write. Other days, even days in a row, I do not. This blog has been what I wanted it to be–an acceptable brain dumping, status reporting, thought issuing, fun poking, idea developing site.

So. If you’re reading, welcome. If you’re lurking, I know you are there. If you’re commenting, well, that’s even better. Because even the some days occasional bloggers love the comments.

    Ahh yes, comments are good. I’ve been surprised by some distant relatives that let me know they read my blog regularly. I usually find out at funerals where it seems our reunions take place these days. Happy summer to you!!

    Odd indeed. I’ve experienced the same thing – usually with older relatives not especially adept at all things technological, who therefore don’t know how to establish a Google account to be able to leave comments.
