roll call

Just a quickie long list of blog stuff:

I’ve updated my blogroll and added a bunch of my regular reads.  Please check them out, there’s some good stuff.  If you have some blogs that are favorites, please share.  In particular, if you like coffee, or if you know someone who does, please visit Coffee Ambassadors for some great Direct Trade coffee – great coffee, beautiful mission!

If you get my blog posts via email, I’m sorry that the formatting looks so weird, but I don’t know how to fix it.  I’d recommend that you click on the title of the post in the email which will take you to my blog site, so you can read that post without having sentences and paragraphs running together.

If you don’t get my posts via email, I’d recommend you subscribe –  you can use the link in the left margin of the site – just so you can know when I have a new post, since they’re sporadic sometimes.

(Note:  I just updated my blog settings to only show partial posts in feeds.  If you’re using Google or some other reader to see my posts, it will now only show the first few lines and you’ll have to click “… more…”,  or whatever it says, to see the rest of it.  This is an experiment.  Let me know if you hate it, but be gentle.)

I added a link at the top of my site to “Send me a private note“.  If you have something to say to me that you don’t feel comfortable putting in a public comment, you can just send me a note there and it will come to my email, so no one will see it but me.  Keep in mind, though, that no return address is required, so if you want a response, you’ll have to tell me who you are and how I can get back to you.

If you’re a new reader, I have a ton of good posts that are old.  Check out the archives or categories for more stuff.

If you are a long-time reader, and if you don’t hate me yet, do me a favor and send my link to some of your friends.  My ego is large and I need a steady inflow of new fans to keep my spirits up.  Thanks.

I’m on Facebook now and my blog posts show up there as notes.  It’s a cool place to stay in touch and I like to do that.  Please help.

Last thing:  Please comment.  I know that a lot of my posts don’t invite comments.  I’ve tried to write some that do, but it feels fake.  If anything you read, though, provokes any kind of reaction – positive or negative – please tell me.  I can see the numbers of people who visit the site, but I have no idea if the writing is of any value unless you tell me.  Value is good.  Comments are good.

I love you, too.
