“Competition in the blogosphere favors the quirky loner who happens to have a knack for writing quickly and has something interesting to say.” This sentence from the Wilson Quarterly, Autumn 2007 at 65, and hit my particular nail squarely on the head. Or at least the notions of a quick typing maverick hold true. As to the appeal of this ultra-micro-niche blog, since more than 250 people are automatically fed these blog posts, around 300 people a day visit the site, and 130 have signed up to receive the monthly compilations, what this odd-ball scribbles must interest some people.
Silence from almost all those readers, however, has held true from the beginning. I’ve given up hoping for comments, and mostly delete spam. But even a tiny email from you would hearten firstname.lastname@example.org I will write back! With no way to know you, blog reader, it’s much harder for me to know how to improve this resource.
