Hey, you! Yes you, the hundred or so extra people who swung by yesterday to check out what I had to say.
Hi! Welcome! Can I get you a drink?
Now, I know every once in a while I write something remarkable, and get some extra visitors, and some of you even stick around for a little while. I like that 🙂
But yesterday – sheesh! Not only did my traffic go up about 25%, but my page views and bandwidth more than DOUBLED!
So obviously you were hanging out, sifting through the archives. Did you like what you saw? You’ve been here for a while… getting hungry? I’ll fix some sandwiches.
Now while I could snoop through my access logs and find out where all y’all are coming from, that’s a pain in the ass, and I just don’t have the time or desire. But I would really like to, shall we say, Maximize the interaction I have with my readers – which is your cue to click on the little comment box and say “hi.”
You don’t need to include your real name, or real email address – just make something up and stick it in the boxes. Then leave a little note and tell me how much you love me. Or how much you hate me. Or how you take your coffee – I really don’t care. Just say something.
In the meantime, I’ll be here… waiting… wondering…
