I forgot to do this yesterday, so I will today. This blog has just passed an important milestone: six months in existence and regular (almost daily) posting. It has steadily risen from about 30 daily hits, to about 60 for a while, to about 100 for a long while. Now it has wild swings between 150 and 250 daily hits, the swings mostly related to Carnivals.

The way it is now, it's my blog and I'll write if I want to, what I want, how I want... Read it or leave it...it's mine, mine, mine....
