A Blog "Of Note"
Big Bucket List development for this blog the other day. I guess you could also call it a Tipping Point – Morgan Freeman or Malcolm Gladwell, pick the personified literary device you’re comfortable with. We were tapped by Blogger as a “Blog Of Note,” and in the event there were any lingering questions related to the power and influence of Google let’s just wrap that up right now, because one nice reference on the Blogger home page resulted in more people coming here in two days than had stopped by over the nearly two-year history of the site. And most of those earlier visitors were compensated celebrity endorsers.
Suddenly we can’t help feeling like U2 at Red Rocks, the boys from Nirvana after “Smells Like Teen Spirit” hit MTV, William Hung as he wrapped up his American Idol audition. You get the idea.
We quietly enabled reader comments a couple of months ago, and as is typically the case for fledgling blogs, no one commented. Not the case over the last few days, and to everyone who has written a kind word in response to one of our recent posts, let me say thank you. To the couple of people who took time out of their busy schedules to pass along word that my blog made them want to vomit, not so much.
I sent an e-mail over the weekend to the good people over at The Best of Blogs, saying I didn’t think I’d meet the eligibility requirements to defend my “Parenting Blog” title in this year’s installment, given this welcome influx of new visitors. While writing the message it occurred to me that these unofficial blog contests shouldn’t really be about defending titles anyway, they should be about helping little-known (or entirely unknown) blogs find an audience. Every time I click on a new site I’m amazed at how much great stuff is being written and posted out there. So go out and click away. And thanks again, very much, for clicking here.
