It's interesting and kind of exciting to check your sitemeter and see who's been visiting your blog. I've had hihts from Turkey, Jerusalem, Gloucestershire - all by mistake, probably but still... one can hope someone will be interested enough to comment and stick around. It's interesting how some people just will not comment on blogs, not just this one but any. I am a regular reader of Althouse and occasionally leave a comment - a lame comment but still - and she has probably hundreds of thousands of readers but it's the same 10-20 commenters all the time. It's a unique group, a very erudite, literate, articulate group and I'm either brave or sublimely stupid to leave comments but I can't resist. I'm generally ignored which is fine, but I get why blogs are so popular. It provides people with an outlet for their frustrations, and is a place where you can be heard, even if you are ignored.
This blogging is a strange phenomina. Wonder where it will be an 10 years?
