Well, about a month into the blogging venture, I have to say I’m pretty well in love! If a day is too busy to post (note to Rubi — you could write more posts on days when you have more time and schedule them to post on days when you don’t, you know), I tend to feel a bit deprived of my half of the conversation with you all.

As a result of this new-found ardour, I have also become more than slightly obsessed with checking my blog stats. I love to see how people are finding me, and tracking which posts are getting the most views. There are still (warning: huge unsubtle hint coming) fewer comments than I’d like, but I don’t always comment on all the blogs I read, either.

Of course, there are still things I’m mystified about — like how a link to my blog ended up on “Best Way to Get a Six-Pack” (do remind me to tell you about my rippling six pack sometime) or “Phone Unlocking Tips” (which is in Hebrew, a language that I failed miserably to master, largely because I kept trying to use French vocabulary in class) — but I reckon I’ll figure them out eventually. Or get jaded enough not to wonder about it so much… though I hope that day doesn’t arrive any time soon.

So stay tuned for more ponderings, recommendations, and laffs in the next months. I’m really glad you’re here with me! (And, seriously, would it kill you to leave a teensy-weensy comment once in a while?)
