My wee commitment








As you may or may not know I write a brief essay for publication every single day, 365 days a year. I have done this without fail for over 2,000 consecutive days now. And when I say "every single day" I mean it. Even on my birthday. Even on vacation. Even on Halloween. And yes, even on Christmas.

No one is reading Clerkmanifesto on Christmas. It is a holiday! It is THE HOLIDAY. The cities are locked down. The fields are full of crows. Lights glow in the hearths and soft covers are thrown over somnolent computers everywhere. No one is cruising the Internet looking for a touch of only slightly difficult to digest enlightenment on the greatest holiday of the year. No one is here at all, but I write anyway. That is my commitment.

"But wait," You cry out, "I am here."

Good point.

I got you this.

It's not much.

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
