One impression I did not want to leave with my last post was that I was at all arrogant. When I get a new photo on the list of folks following me, I always check out the profile and their blogs. I consider it an honor when folks want to let me know they've been here, especially when they leave a comment.
Sometimes I will do some research using my site meter. It's a useful tool in letting me know the impact of past posts. I still get people coming here to read the tribute posts I wrote for Suzanne, still from around the world.
You who read me on a regular basis are most important to the current writing of these posts. Without my regular readers and commenters, I would have quit doing this a long time ago. Because of those who come here and give me a virtual pat on the back when they like what I write and those who give me a virtual hug when I'm hurting, I'm still chugging along 2-1/2 years and 896 posts later.
One thing I can't say enough is Thank You.
