THE WRONG IMPRESSION

In a previous post, I lamented the loss of five years of blog comments, dutifully and beautifully written by you, my faithful readers. While I understand the loss, I was going over some of my archived posts and for a new reader, it seems like I have quite the sad little blog. To someone new, it looks like I went five years of blog writing before someone wrote the very first comment on this post. Though it would be weird to think I had no readers and then suddenly developed a small but devoted group, as if I added water to a packet of Insta-Audience(tm).

It’s hard to believe no one commented on classic posts such as “The Udon Experiment” and “Cover Me“.

  1. Ah – the missing comments…I started reading your blog backwards and discovered that was a bad idea because I kept ruining the suspense, reading the end before the beginning of every story. I also noticed the occasional broken promise – a tittilating hint about something you would write more about later, but reading backwards, I already knew you would never mention the subject again.So I jumped to 2002 to read forward instead, and found it most enjoyable. I laughed coke out my nose at “what would Johnny Patterson do”. And then you went to New Orleans and left me dangling. I began imagining some of the comments that must have been erased when you upgraded the system. I bet some said “what the !#@!$&%#! happened to you and Andy!”Finally, you finished your story of the night – 6 months or a year later. Ironically it was very close to the point I stopped reading backwards – had I continued I would have had the answer a few weeks ago rather than today. You never did tell us what happened the next morning though. Maybe its still coming?I’ve much enjoyed this super-concentrated source of reading material for the last month or two. I’m sad that I have to drop down to 5 posts a week from now on. It was great catching up – heh – more like getting to know you – in this oddly one-way fashion.Always a fan,

I do admit to not fulfilling some of my blog promises. The worst is when I don’t provide closure. I suppose I could fill everyone in on what happened with the rest of New Orleans.In any case, I sincerely thank you for reading and hope you remain a reader. I will put you down on the list for the next batch of et.com t-shirts or panties.
