This has been a test*

poster I’ve been thinking that the majority of my readers are people who do not know me. Make one sarcastic comment (ok, maybe two or three), though, and all of a sudden the numbers shoot through the roof. So I guess some of my old friends are actually reading.

Hi, guys. I didn’t mean that bit about ghastly. It was actually lots of fun, and good work, too.

Strangely public, though, isn’t it? Walls Have EarsMakes me a bit uneasy. The world is both large and small, all at once. I suppose it’s a choice — lots of bloggers are fully visible, and that’s what I had decided to do. And probably will continue as I have been.

*Apologies – I broke this post and am retrieving it here – I don’t know how to change the time stamp. It was originally posted on October 17th.

    Ah yes, writng about yourself is nearly as frightening as letting students know anything about your personal life.

    Still, one of the greatest appeals of blogs is that readers do get a chance to know you as a person, and not as a disembodied voice.

    Yes, strangely public. And sometimes publicly strange in my case at least!

    Its good to meet and get to know people through a different set of filters than are the case in ‘real life’ (i.e. without the mainly visual cues).

    Loren – It’s true, that about the disembodied voice. I’ve noticed that when I am putting strictly fictional work in here, I feel somewhat masked. It’s more natural for me to be transparent, I think. Even at the risk of being caught being rude or juvenile.

    Truce – Other people’s lives shift in and out of focus. Out here, no one has front windows any more; everyone comes and goes through their garages (sad, I think). Blogging seems to be a new window through which we can watch our neighbors. I like it a lot.
