I had a rather pleasant surprise waiting for me in my inbox this morning (and not one of those ‘is this another Viagra add or are you just happy to see me’ surprises, either). WordPress sent me a love letter (well, it felt like it anyway). It was a completely unsolicited panoply of praise.
Of course I was rather dubious at first about the whole thing. Fresher than ever? Me? I’m happy if 8 people stumble my way on a given day. In July of this year some 27 individuals (not all of them blood relatives, mind you) marked the height of my popularity. It was a true thrill. And I still take pleasure in reminiscing over my finest (albeit brief) hour. Oh, the glory days.
But then I thought – if I’m fresher than ever – that means there are no ‘damn man, you stink’ – or ‘BO central’, no ‘rotting eggs’ or ‘skunk town’. And you know what, that makes me happy. I’ve already noted that WordPress fosters comradery, support, friendship, smileys all round. And I think that’s great. I love being fresher than ever. If only I could rename my blog ‘pine scent’.
Hey Andy, Joen, Martin and Zé – I love you guys. You’re the best!!
