One thing that keeps me going at times is all the kind comments left by those who stop by. If it happens to be one who has their own blog, I may put the link over on my side bar, if their blog appeals to me. If it happens to be one of my NE Ohio friends, the blog gets a link and at least one mention. It's my goal to share with my friends some of the great blogging I've come across in the past year.
I've had comments left by good people who don't blog, but support those who do. Good folks, such as David5258, whom I just had email contact with in the past couple of weeks. Funny thing though, he lives maybe, 9 miles from me. We've posted on the national boards together. I told him over at radio-info that we may have spoken a couple of months ago over at the Mill Restaurant at Buehlers in Orrville. Small world.
CollegeDJ86, a young man who lives no more than 10 miles away, also frequently visits and will occasionally leave comments. I envision him as a young man who has a bright future.
Rich in Medina, his wife graduated from my alma mater, Highland High School. Rich does a good job at encouraging me and will sometime take me to task about something I wrote. Not a thing wrong with that. We can always disagree without being disagreeable.
The beauty of having a small readership is I can thank most of my readers by name. But then again, I do live in a small town.
THANK YOU EVERYONE!!
