A little housekeeping

Listen, all conceit aside I realize I'm talking pretty much to myself. My brief and occasional reviews of my blogpatrol stats have made it quite clear that, pretty much, there are maybe two of you, and I've been 'bot-crawled maybe once.. So the next sentence, which was going to be the first sentence of this post, is a little silly, but here it is anyway.

You may have noticed I've changed my blurb, above. It wasn't really accurate anymore, and since I did all of three posts while it was accurate, I thought the best option was to change it.

For the sake of completeness, though, I didn't want it to just disappear into the ether, so I'm including it here:
We're having a baby. This is the space for my rants and raves, musings and meanderings, and all things related to being a father. This is a space my wife doesn't know about -- and where you don't know my wife -- where I can launch the flotilla of my fears and hopes and where I can see what sings (and what sinks) without waterlogging my marriage.

"If you are a dreamer, come in . . . "
The old quote was from Shel Silverstein (bio and some poems). The new quote is from Ogden Nash (bio with poems and some more poems).

Also, you may notice on the sidebar that I've started a blogroll. Right now it's a bit disorganized and haphazard, but hopefully I'll get around to making it nice-nice soon. Until then, though, please feel free to click around in it.

I blogged for about 4 months straight with no comments/visitors. Writing like you have audience is hard and yeah, oftentimes it feels really silly. Even now that I know I have a few regular visits, I tend to write like no one is there, I think. It pretty much boils down to doing/writing in a way that makes me most comfortable

Hey, Pea... no "First!"

Thanks for the feedback. I agree that writing without an audience is hard, but at the end of the day it's the sitting-down and writing that's hard with or without an audience. I don't think it's going to change how I write, now that there's some traffic -- I hope not, anyway.

I didn't realize this was limited to 400 chars. See the Administrivia post for more
