I get flattered pretty easily. If anyone notices anything I do, I am impressed. Perhaps that is because I bring stuff up so often, I get a lot of eye rolls, but when someone else brings up something I do, my heart nearly gives out. You have to see the reaction I get from poor Kevin and Paul here at work when I show them ugly pictures of some beam in my basement twice a week. Yeah, gotta love that.
I started this blog to write some stuff about my new house. It has served that purpose, along with some other topics. Just check out my category list in the right hand column. I like to write, and think I have done a fair job at expressing my thoughts here. As you may have noticed, sometimes I lose steam towards the end of a post and kind of just end it. I suppose that’s common with a lot of us.
This post really has nothing to do with anything, but I thought I would write some things about this blog. If you are at all interested, the most popular post here is one about “The Satan Caves.” That one was really fun to write. Another popular post is the one about “Installing Our New Harman P38 Pellet Stove.” Those posts are pretty informative and are localized. People probably get nostalgic about the Satan Caves and I think the timing (Autumn) was good for the pellet stove post. One that I always try to push is the “A Car Named Linda” post. I am not sure why. Maybe it’s because that one might describe me the best…a kind of frustrated at society, but victim of it at the same time kind of guy. People who know me probably call me nuts because of my antics (probably?).
One thing I REALLY love is when I find out that someone reads my blog…someone who I would’ve never guessed. I like that. I found out the other night that my best buddy’s fine little lady likes to read this thing. Yeah, that’s right, you know who you are. Remember we secretly met at Dave and Busters? I don’t know why, but I get a thrill out of that. I remember on one of my first posts, “Visiting Block Island, RI,” I got my first comment. Someone probably “Googled” Block Island or something and stumbled across my blog. I am so happy to see that the visitor had a chance to see some good shots of the island.
Whenever someone comes up to me and says anything about my writing, I get real shy. It might be because I portray one side in person and am actually quite normal when I write. That’s a real perk of the blogosphere…you can hide. Of course, I take great care not to provide any real information here…there are some crazy folks out there. I don’t really mention names or addresses or anything like that because I don’t want to get anyone in trouble.
Sooo…back to the title of this post. I know there are some people out there who are bored at work and maybe check this out from time to time…just to waste a few minutes as the clock ticks closer to 5PM. I may have known someone way back when…or whatever. I don’t really know…well, because I don’t really dwell on that stuff. But, if you are one of those people who enjoy reading what I have to say, keep on reading. Maybe you have wanted to leave a comment every once in a while. If so, go for it. Use a fake name or something. No one will ever know who you are and I will have some inspiration for next time.
