It’s been 13 months since I started blogging. I’ve discovered old friends (who have discovered me online). I’ve found interesting Google page-ranking algorithm effects that cause my blog to show up in the most amusing searches. I’ve received emails from Willie Stargell’s niece, from Rick Wakeman (of Yes keyboard fame), and from a friend of Patrik Elias’ who forwarded my blog post about the Devils star buying sneakers. I’m writing, I’m reading, I’m thinking about writing as I’m reading, and I’m taking many more pictures of everyday things that seem blog-ready.
