My readership has suddenly increased this year--and has reached new highs over the summer. I still only have a few official followers (which is fine; I know, among other things, that becoming a follower requires a Google account of some kind)--but apart from those five faithful readers, and a few others I know about (colleagues and friends), I don't know who is reading my blog or why.
So, if you're not someone I know--or if you are someone I know but you haven't let me know you read the blog--I'd love it if you'd leave a quick comment telling me what brought you to the blog and why you're interested. If you also would like to say a little something about whether you read regularly or just stumbled across it once and check in on occasion, that would be interesting, too. Please use the "Comment" function below. And thanks for reading!
