Hello, all you lurkers! Over the past couple of weeks, I was pleasantly surprised to find out about several people who are following my blog. Even if you aren’t necessarily saying anything, it’s nice to know you’re out there.

When my friend Gloria launched her Escarpment Views blog, she said, “Publishing a magazine is a bit like putting a message in a bottle. It’s surprising where it ends up.”

Blogging is a bit like a message in a bottle, too. You have no idea what shores it’s going to land on and who is going to pick it up.

Hey, if you pick up the bottle, drop a message in it yourself and send it back!
