It’s recently come to my attention that my humble little blog has a small readership in the UK, in India, in Japan, and in Canada.
Be you local here in America, or way up north in Canada, or even separated from me by oceans, I cannot possibly tell you all how much it means to me that I’ve actually developed such a readership over the course of just one week! I’ve done the math, and, if I’m correct, there should be about seventeen of you guys right now!
Do you have any idea how much of an honor that is to me? Seventeen people from around the globe, tuning in to read my words, laugh at my crappy jokes, listen to my thoughts, share my feelings. I’ve been writing all my life, but this is the first time that I’ve ever had an audience outside my immediate group of family and friends. To have people who have never met me before become interested in my thoughts and words and ideas is just so unbelievably amazing and humbling to me.
So, to each of you, I’d like to say: Thank you! Je vous remercie! धन्यवाद! ありがとうございました！
And I’d also like to ask you to please forgive me if all that is grammatically incorrect — I used Google Translator for it. But I wanted to do something small to honor my international readership, and that seemed like the thing to do.
UPDATE: And now I have a reader in Australia! Would it be offensive to say “G’day, mate!” to you? Either way, I extend my most hearty welcome to you, Lab Member 018!
