When I began this journal, I figured my kids would read it, and some of my old chat room friends (and enemies). And so they did.
Never did I expect to pick up such a varied assortment of people commenting regularly here.
Some came because I did a search on Kansas City, hoping to find some local bloggers; then I commented in their journals, and left my link, and they came calling. (Hi Toonguy and Anne!) I know lots of my readers are here because I commented in their journals and they came to return the favor.
In the case of many, I have no idea how they found me. One lady, Faye, said I was the first person she had ever emailed outside of her family and acquaintances.
When I mentioned my book of poems, several of you ordered a copy, which I do appreciate. I have one reader who seems to be a huge fan of mine, and I think I'll hire him as my agent: he's doing his level best to see that my book is introduced to everybody in the state of Pennsylvania. Thanks, Eugene!
A couple of days ago a lady commented here, and by the comment she made, I realized she lived not far away. I checked her profile, and she's about fifteen miles from me. She's a widow and in real estate.
I sent her an email, but she deleted it... no doubt because she didn't recognize my screen name. I used to live very near where she now lives.
I'm rambling. But I'd love to know how some of you found my journal, if you can remember.
