I launched this blog modestly June 7, 2008 with the words, "Welcome to the Chuck Taylor blog! Stand by for news, views and commentary!" I didn't return until October, when I leisurely posted all of eight entries. But when our plasma TV went kaput in November, I found myself with time on my hands—and a laptop sitting in front of me. Boom! There were 44 posts that month, followed by 73 in December and 113 in January.
At this point, the blog is a daily indulgence to record the times of a generous life: the photos and certainly, a good share of rants.
Of course, I figured that this was total self-indulgence... that aside from a couple accommodating friends (that's you Donna and Mark), nobody was actually reading this random collection of goop.
But on Jan. 18, I installed a counter and I'll be damned, it seems that this Internet thing is catching on. Today, less than a month later, I reached 3,000 hits. Of course, I recognize that that's nuttin' compared to "real" blogs, but it's awfully gratifying.
So thank you! That feels nice. Keep coming back, won't you?
