The year in review: in 2005 (my first full year of blogging) I received over 1,200 visitors on this site from all over the world, from places as far away as China, Israel, New Zealand and Holland. Perhaps that's not terribly impressive, especially when compared to more established blogs. But when I started this blog I really had no idea that my readership would go much beyond friends and aquaintances. So I'm amazed and delighted when I check my site stats.
By the way, I love getting comments--those stats turn into actual people with ideas and reactions. You can always comment anonymously and include whatever identifying info you're comfortable with in the body of your text. It's easy--just click on the "comments" link below each entry. (I had a problem awhile back with some spam comments--that's why I added the word verification step.)
