Programming Note


Hey, we noticed we ahem, attracted two “followers” since we last checked. A big “howdy” to Galina and Ida_pai. Thanks for signing up and enjoying the ride with us.

We’re simultaneously stoked and humbled that people would actually sign up to read what we have to say. We can only hope we are worthy of the continued attention and support.

Maybe if we get a couple more, the congregation could be called “the Dirty Dozen”. And trust us, we will!

Just cracking into double-digit territory reminds us of that scene from “This is Spinal Tap” where Rob Reiner’s character asks the band about its declining popularity and smaller crowds. Without much wiggling at all, the band claimed that their fan base had simply become more “selective”.

So, we salute you “selective” ones. Have a great day!

A couple of years ago, I said, "Dean, you should write a blog"

For whatever reason, I was unaware you had been doing such for many months, and frankly you were irritated I was uninformed.

As you patiently explained,"archives" as if I didn't know. (At the time, as I was diving through the archives, I wanted to know if you read comments on old posts) I patiently explained, I was up to speed, I just wanted to know if you had an "alert mechanism” to let you know someone had commented on previous blogs.

So, am I a subscriber? Don't know. Occasionally I check out Ms. Fier, Mr. Kat, Ms. Lipstick, and always check in with Bdaddy.

As previously reported, the nsights posted leave little upon which to comment. We simply agree and move on. Mr. Kat was correct in that.

BUT......glad you are humbled, but you need to know BwD has become a routine. Often it takes time to review back. A couple of years ago, I said, "Dean, you should write a blog"

Foxie, hmmmm... the count on my home page still says "10". Maybe there is a double secret probation subscribership of which I'm unaware.

'Dawg, thanks!

Under "Who's following BwD" is a "Follow" tab. I believe in doing so you will be given the option of getting email alerts when I post, getting them sent directly to your home page and/or getting posts sent to your phone/PDA device.

That's the read-out for the ones following via blogger; mine is via google reader.

Move the "Followers" up the sidebar just below "Subscribe." Most folks subscribe vs. follow because they don't scroll down that far. Shoot for bakers dozen!
