This is a quick shout out to several new subscribers to my blog — Dan in Boston (hi!), the North Carolina clan, and here in Alaska, the amazing artist Peggy! Thanks guys. It’s so much fun to know who is receiving my letters each week. By the way, all I can see when you subscribe is your email address and the general area of the country where you live. So with that in mind, I also want to say hi to Carol and a new follower from West Virginia.
Subscribing to the blog just means that each week the letters will be delivered directly to your email so you know when there’s a new letter. I try to post new letters on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The subscriptions help me know how many people are reading.
The only other way I know you’re reading my letters is when you leave a comment on my blog. I LOVE the comments. You all make the blog fun. It’s fantastic to see a conversation develop between readers in Alaska and Italy, or the Netherlands and Chicago. All the comments together give a more complex, interesting perspective on the topics I’m writing about. So please, if you ever have the slightest notion to participate, please, please do. Comment every day. Comment twice on the same letter. Whether you’re my neighbor, a relative, a friend, or until now a complete stranger, I’d love to have you share your thoughts.
Now, if it will only stop raining, we’re heading out to pick blueberries. I’m being led blindfolded to a secret spot and told I can take no photos that will give away our whereabouts (really), but I’ve been promised 10 gallons.
