Lessons Learned

Sorry for the delay in posting but I learned 2 very important lessons after Saturday's post:

1) Never try to delurk or quasi delurk on a Saturday. Not everyone is glued to their computer like me and so I am sure I may have had a slightly higher hit rate had I done it on a weekday. In fact, one of the reasons I have delayed in posting since then is that I wanted to leave my last post at the top of the page for a few extra days to see if I could draw out any more comments (I got 1 so it was worth it...)

2) I realize I need to be a more frequent blogger if I want to get people that engaged. Most of my friends and family know the frequency with which I blog and hence only check the site once or twice a week. I think I go through phases with blogging: some weeks (or months) are busier than others. Anyone remember August 2007? Confession: work was very, very slow and so I'd write 4 or 5 posts during the day and then spread them out throughout the week. I don't have that luxury now but I am hoping after I take my Series 65 on Feb 5th my life goes back to quasi normal and I can post comfortably 3 - 4 times a week (I think setting reasonable goals is wise - there is no way I will be a 7xer).

So dear readers, I appreciate your patience with me. I appreciate your support. I appreciate all of you who took a moment to chime in on the "might could" debate. I hope you find reason to keep commenting as it lets me know I am doing something right with this blog.

And if that ain't country, I'll kiss your...

Keep it up. Some of us still stop by from time to time.

And, not to worry! You're better at keeping up with the blogging than I am. But, perhaps I just lead a much more boring life, too.

And, there! You have a comment already. How's that?
