This is just a short note to my regular readers to share some good news. Although I felt for a long time like the ideas in this blog were like seeds falling on stones, some new evidence may be rising to the contrary.
First, all the statements to the contrary by readers when I expressed my discouragement. Second, I’m starting to see in other “blogs around town” some of these ideas reappearing, as if they have seeded the collective consciousness to some degree.
Third – and this one blows me away – WordPress sent out its yearly “health of your blog” report cards today – a report for how popular one’s blog was in 2010. Mind you, I had a total of five blog entries all year – I had virtually abandoned this website. One would think the interest would have disappeared with my efforts.
But guess what? The website received 33,000 hits in 2010! So either the people who read here are a small fanatic crowd, each of you visiting this website dozens of times every day, or there is a genuine public interest in the ideas and perspective offered here!
Anyway, I found it heartening, and thought you folks might, too. I wanted to share the good news.
