Hey, There

It’s been a long time since I welcomed new readers. How’s it going? Thank you for finding me, and I’m completely fine if you decide to stay or leave. But I’d prefer that you stay. And if you stay, I’m fine if you lurk or comment. I do like comments, but I won’t push you to do anything that makes you uncomfortable. And if you comment, I’m fine if you make yourself at home – please do – but please don’t leave your dirty socks on the coffee table. I reserve the right to take your socks and put them on your face while you sleep. But I will probably also make popcorn and sit down to a movie with you.

We can all be friends, right?

Thanks for visiting, friends of friends, who are now also friends of the first degree. Thanks for coming back, loyal long-timers. All of you are wonderful.

I’m going to try updating this blog weekly throughout this semester. I’ve really, really enjoyed the summer, and now it’s time to get down to business. And of course I’m going to have things to say about what I’m learning and the kids in my classes and my professors and chances I’ll have to socialize and go to church. You know I’ll have opinions.

They just won’t come as often.

Anyway, just thank you for reading, perusing, getting to know me. My whole life isn’t my blog, but it’s honest and fun enough, maybe. Sometimes it’s entertaining. It’s a good place to start.

Besides, I’m so much cooler in person.

And, I’d like to get to know you.

I have a hunch you’re pretty cool, too.

Hey, Interwebs, What Conclusions Can I Draw from How You Come upon My Site?

Hey. Yeah, You.

Yesterday was a bit of a heavy-traffic day here at mayiwrite.com. I looked at my stats and tried to figure out where all the viewing came from. I can’t nail it down to any single source.

For all you new folks, I hope you found a little something of what you’ve been looking for. I hope you come back.

For all you lurkers, I appreciate you. I may or may not know who you are, but hopefully you find something here useful or entertaining. Hopefully not blackmaily or otherwise extortiony.

For all you whose feeds spit out my posts on a seemingly obnoxious basis, thanks for not unsubscribing.

Thanks for reading. Seriously. You have no idea how much it means.

In other news, last night I went to a cabaret. Afterwards, some of us went to a restaurant to celebrate and we ended up sitting close to Geoffrey Rush. He did not look like a troubled piano prodigy or a pirate. So much fun.

The cabaret was excellent. Remind me to showcase Matt on the next Friend Feature. He’s really a stellar guy.
