I was somewhat surprised to realize that my recent race report on the Bed-Stuy 10K was my 125th post; it doesn’t feel like I’ve been keeping this blog that long. Also, checking my site stats, I’m somewhat past 8,000 page views, which is also pleasantly surprising. It seems that most of my posts get around 40-60 views, and while that is relatively insignificant in the grand scheme of blogs, seems pretty impressive to me, because it means that people other than my friends, family, and blog-associates read my writing on a regular basis.
Its odd to think that complete strangers are interested in following my writing. Since I don’t write about issues of controversies, most of my readers haven’t ever left a comment, so I have no idea who is stopping by to take in my ramblings and reflections.
So I have a request. If you’re reading this, can you leave me a quick comment just saying hi and introducing yourself? Some of you I obviously know are out there (Hi Mom and Dad!), but I’d just love a quick snapshot of who my “audience” is (I hear I have a cult following amongst students at Colgate University). Feel free to ignore me (I’ll never know) but it would be great to hear from you. No, not you — YOU. Thanks.
