Partly my lack of contact with readers is self-inflicted because I swore from the beginning that I would not allow comments on my blog. I’m not so self-centered as to think I am the only individual allowed to have an opinion, it’s just that I know how obnoxious and immature some people can be and I simply don’t have the time outside of my day job to mitigate or even respond to childish antics.
I will admit that my followers tickle me beyond belief. Now there’s no need for readers to get frantic, it’s not like I am technologically savvy enough or even keenly interested enough to figure out your ISPs, and Google Analytics doesn’t work that way. I can however see basic information such as service providers, operating systems and other data that remind me my readers are indeed real people.
It is a good reminder for me so I check my analytics once every month or so as a reminder that I write for not only myself but for others as well. So I want to take this moment as I near the 50K readership mark to thank you from the bottom of my heart….and a special wink to my local readers at Sanden, TI, and several other tech companies because I probably wouldn’t do it without you.
