One of the smaller joys of blogging is knowing that you have regular readers who are interested in what you have to say on often rather disparate topics. The disparate part is really interesting to me, because every newly-minted post can be a wildcard (hence a turn-off for some who like predictability; but that’s so not you, dear reader). And so it takes real interest in the blogger and how she writes that brings readers back for more. Am I patting myself on the back more than I should already? Maybe. But yeah, this is a warm Hello to my new and regular readers and here’s to another exciting and hopefully more prolific year! Cheers!
