A special hello to all those "real time" friend of mine who are linked down the side of these esteemed pages. Question - do you mind if I give out this site address to real people? People you might even meet one day? Like, what if its a journo I met who is interested in blogs in the "traditional media" like I did on the weekend after few wines? Is that ok? Do you mainly put your words out into cyber space as an anonymous experience to be found by strangers searching for random things like "1.5 litre engine" or "redgum lyrics" for example? Do you see it just a private forum between mates, who have all actually met and shared beers at some point? Would you rather I protect your privacy, and not hand out the url willy nilly? Or are you happy that what you post on-line you would pretty much talk about down the pub?
In reality I'm only maxing out at about 4-7 indivuals a day on the old statcounter (I think the same 7, honestly). I kind of gave up on the old blog being a bit mysterious and aloof - as everyone is connected to everyone these days and, you know, now my Dad has the address. I don't think he drops in too often though. Of course now I also have a dedicated librarian readership (who are all hot stuff on the net, and masters of the IT milleu). Tell me your thoughts sister and brothers. Comments open .... NOW!
