My 1st Year in the Bloggosphere… (Bloggishnish)

The following was the 2010 report card & stat report I received from the good folks at  Interesting, to say the least  but they may just be blowing a little wind up my skirt.  Regardless, I’ve enjoyed the format and being able to write as a free-agent outside the context of the Hobbes list and other forums.

I’d also be remiss if I didn’t thank the folks who visit my blog. After all, if there weren’t any indications that folks found something of value here — entertainment or otherwise — I’d have bagged it in a while a go.  And, while I don’t always respond to every kind comment I receive, please know that I read them all and am humbled: Thanks, hopefully it goes without saying…

So, here’s what WordPress had to say.

About TG

I've been around a bit and done a few things, have a couple kids and a few grandkids. I tend to be curmudgeonly, matter-of-fact and not predisposed to self-serving chit-chat. Thankfully, my wife's as nice as can be otherwise we'd have no friends. My interests are somewhat eclectic, but whose aren't?
