It's nice knowing that people are visiting. I, personally, write this for me, personally. It's rewarding, though, to also know that there's enough interest on someone's part to make their way to your site. Or, as frequently happens, to land on the site unexpectedly following a link from wherever, not knowing exactly what they will find.
There's more a sense of place, having a give and take, when there's some sort of interaction. That's why I provide an email link in my profile in addition to accepting comments.
So while you're at it, don't be shy about writing comments while you're here; if you see posts that you feel are worthy. It's doesn't matter if you agree or not; I'm open to whatever thoughts you wish to share.
I don't consider comments on multiple posts, as many as you choose to write, littering. You should, though, expect that I'll believe you don't mind getting them if you write them.
I do links in this blog with the same sort of consideration as I do other things in my life. What's important to me is relationships.
The difference here is that I prefer to receive as I give in terms of linking. I don't want one way links; I don't seek to give one way links. I don't do any sort of reciprocal link monitoring. I do visit blogs with whom I've done exchanges, though, and expect my link will be there as the link to that site is here.
There are times that someone has posted a link to this site that I'm not aware of. If you have a link here and I do not have one pointed to your site please let me know.
People don't typically explore archived posts. This, I believe, provides the best picture of what this blog has been about over the past approximately 20 months.
None of the posts currently appearing on the front page have been reviewed for sidebar inclusion.
And with that, it's time to close.
