Several people have written me to point out that I made it all the way up to #17 on John Hawkins' Top 40 Blogs. When I saw that, I was as flabbergasted as you! Oda Mae wrote in my comments section recently that I should be proud of the things I say on my blog, but I don't really think I'm all that interesting. I still can't believe anyone reads my stuff, much less people like SGT Hook who are deployed and should have much higher priorities.

But anyway, people do come here, and I certainly appreciate it. Thanks for helping me try to grok.

I wish you could see yourself through my eyes, 'cause from this view, you're pretty damn cool. I can understand why everyone reads your site and loves it so much.

Yay! As we would have said in the mid-90s, you go girl! :)

Please don't let it go to your head.

I read your work as kinda, sorta letters from a friend who I don't write back to. Well, not often, anyway.

But if you start getting a swelled head about the people who do enjoy your writing, then you'll start trying to be "meaningful". And then I'll start feeling like I didn't understand anything that you wrote and maybe I wasn't really smart enough or good enough to be reading your stuff. And that will make me unhappy and I will stop reading and if everybody does that, then you'll be back to a core audience of ... ?

So don't worry about who is reading. Just keep doing what you been doing.

You are the only female whose weblog I read every day (most days twice). 8-}

Excellent and well-deserved. I think you grok pretty well.
