It came up quite a few times while in the States, and while it always gets me a bit, I think it more than anything made Pat think a little harder about what it is that I do when I’m sitting on the computer. Yes, I know there are readers of this blog. I know because they leave comments or tweet about what I’ve written, or sometimes they send me nice emails asking me questions about this or that.
Still, it’s weird no less to meet up with people you haven’t seen in years and have them asking questions about things that you wrote in your blog 3, 12 or 24 months ago. Don’t get me wrong; it’s completely flattering! I just often feel as though I’m talking to a panel of my peers… ya know, other travelers and soon-to-be world wanderers who are trying to do the same thing… and not distant relos (that’s Aussie for relatives) or former teachers, who may or may not think I’m crazy, following quietly along to my every move.
We had a meet-up over pizza with the Schoenman side of my family where it came to my attention that so-and-so has read this or that. Oh, and this person I used to know follows along… and this person, too. It was a shocker, but for Pat especially, who walked away saying, “Oh man, I can’t believe how many people read your blog!”
Pat doesn’t even read my blog.
So, thank you for reading, my quiet little blog followers. Don’t forget that you can always leave a comment below to let me know you’re here 😉
