five glorious years

It’s been almost exactly five years since I started this blog – by something of a coincidence today I got a call from a reporter at the local daily paper to interview me about my blog. He was basically trying to ask in the nicest possible way why I would keep doing this when not many people read it (about 70 visitors a day on average) and a fair number of the entries aren’t that interesting – his example being my post from Austin, TX where I thrillingly reported that I was quite tired after a busy day so just had a bowl of soup and watched a movie in my hotel room. I explained that it’s really mostly a diary which other people can see, and that it’s about 50% for me, 35% for family and friends, and 15% for people to stumble on – I think I’ve noted here that each month about 10 people find it by googling “toddler stammer” for example.

So if he likes what I said it should be in the paper on Sunday or Monday. I’ll have to alert the web hosting people in anticipation of the literally tens more people who might visit this page.
