By the way, you know what the secret of blogging is? You just put a stake in the sand and the next thing you know you’ve got a tent there. People come by. Few return but some keep coming back. By now you have created a coherent place in the swirl of life. Even the people who don’t read you daily find it reassuring to check in with you again the way you might watch the occasional soap opera and quickly get swept up in the quickly paced plotting. It almost doesn’t matter what accumulated around that first planting. It’s all you, baby, and you’re beautiful! Oh, plus the endorphins.
