I was going to write something more when I got in last night, but got in way too late (even for me) to do so...today's schedule should be lighter than yesterday's, so I'll be back later to write something...some of you have already posted something for today on yesterday's article...thanks for getting started...check back in a little while...
OK, I’m back…it’s a few hours later, and at the time of this writing there are five comments posted here…
Saturday is usually a light traffic day on the blog, speaking of which, let me address a couple of things…
First of all, in answer to Peacemaker’s question (actually, several people have asked me this)…yes, I actually do sleep…a little. But the way the blog works is that, whatever time you send your message, it records that time, so that if you send a message at 4:00 AM (which some of you do), and I don’t post it until several hours later, your message will still say 4:00 AM at the bottom. And if I post it after some other things have been posted, the mechanism will insert it into the order in which it came, so it appears that I’m up 24 hours a day posting comments, but that’s not exactly true.
Secondly, some of you regulars have apologized for being on here too much, as if you’re possibly wearing out your welcome, and I want you to know that that is not the way I see it at all. I totally enjoy your cyber-company, so don’t ever feel self-conscious about being on here several times a day, especially if you really have something to say. If you look at other blogs you’ll notice that when a community actually evolves on one, that the same names are on there constantly. In fact, I get used to hearing from those of you who are on here daily, and kind of expect you to check in at some point during the day.
If you’re on here a lot, it doesn’t mean that you don’t have a life. I’m personally not online all day, but I am usually online off and on all through the day, as most of us in the 21st century are now. In other words, make yourself at home…I love having you here. We are all busy, and yet we all like to be here, so we make the time.
My schedule has been sort of slammed the last few days, so I appreciate that many of you just go ahead and make contact, even before I set the course for the blog that day. It’s all good. A lot of people tell me, even those who have never contributed here, that they feel like they are addicted to the blog; and, whether it should or not, it makes me happy to hear that. I’ve poured a lot into this site, and I’m glad that it’s important to you.
It may just be my positive imagination, but it seems to me that this week BLOGINTHENOW has sort of gone to another level (I know that term is completely overused), but that’s what it feels like to me.
Anyway, I have some free time today, so I may even write some more in a little while.
Oh, by the way, those of you who are a part of CITN…I’ve got a really good word for you tomorrow.
Talk to me.
