Whew! Sorry for the mess around here today, but on Friday afternoon 20 Prospect was a featured blog on WordPress.com’s “Freshly Pressed”, and ever since my front porch has been overrun with hordes of visitors. I’ve been too busy running about pouring drinks, and filling the bowls of chips and salsa to take time to write a proper post, and now that everyone has gone, I am left sweeping up after the mess.
Seriously though, what kind of Karma steers 800 people to my site on the very day that I announce I’m going to be dialing it back for a few weeks?
So, just between us, I’m back.
Shhh… don’t tell anyone!
I’ve got the shades drawn so the neighbors think I’m not home. We’ll just hang out here on the back porch for a few days until the doorbell stops ringing, and the coast is clear. It’ll be fine.
Can I get you some coffee? Please, don’t mind the mess, just make yourself at home.
I like to think that the several hundred visitors, and comments in the past few days have all been the result of my brilliance, but I know better. Most of these visitors from the WP home page, just pulled off of the information superhighway, paused at the stop sign, then sped right back up the on ramp spraying gravel behind them.
( I hope you enjoyed your stay! Please come again!)
No really. PLEASE!
My self image is embarrassingly dependent on my page views. This is the main reason why I can’t stop blogging. What would I do if I didn’t have your comments to make me feel important, and special? Why, without the seven or eight of you I’d have to sit in a Starbucks with my Laptop open, wearing a black mock turtle neck, and trying to look important! So thank you dear devoted followers from saving me from such a fate.
Come back tomorrow, and the next day, and every day to see what fun new things I have written, and help me feel better about myself. Seriously, you guys are saving me a ton of money on therapy bills.
