OK, I was kind of a troll the way I handled my zerohedge.com fishing expedition in pimping my blog..., but:
About 100 of you have figured out how to get a hold of me and asked to be let in to view my blog. About 96 were "approved", I am still waiting on a tiny number to give me a little more information like you all did. I have no way of knowing how many of you as individuals have visited, I do not know enough about Blogger or blogging to have figured that out, people who Comment are a way I can test the "temperature" here, if you will.
Update, 11:49 PM ET
There are 89 of you ZeroHedge visitors who got officially welcomed here! Each of you got a test email minutes ago.
Thanks for jumping through the hoops to come.
Please keep in mind that I am not an expert in anything. I do voice my opinions though! I do try to keep up on issues of interest to me however. I am DEFINITELY going to write more on financial topics than I had earlier thought. But, there will be lots of other kinds of stuff too. And depending on how many Comments (and what kinds) I get will influence the directions this blog will go. For example, in my Poetry and Haiku article (below) I had sort of expected a bigger response. One of the Comments had a great Haiku, you should go check his... But, someone else told my poetry was bad (well, yes). I can only plead that it was written in my youth (I was around 40 or so then).
100 people means I have to go and copy your emails and put them somewhere (Notepad is what am using now), so it will take some time before I can send out mass email notifications that there are new posts up.
100 of you also means that you are almost TRIPLE the number of the people I send out jokes to (my "People OK w/ Ethnic Jokes List"). Most of family and friends are on that joke list, and that is one of my ways of keeping in touch with them. I had figured that they would all come running breathlessly over here to see my blog, but most have not, too busy. Too busy... An article idea? What say you Cognitive Dissonance? (Oh, did I just drop a name here? The Host of this blog is a troll!!!)
I am very happy to have done the work to do this. About 10 or so of my friends and family had earlier replied to me that yes, I should do a blog.
I will probably "dial back" the intensity though. I have been doing little else since last Monday. I really do need to go get last week's bearing sales data and get it into my database...
Thank you again for visiting. Remember, as I have mentioned, that I am doing this to serve my readers and to try to learn more about things I am interested in.
