Thanks so much for coming to read my blog today! You're the 


person to do so.

It took me several hours to figure out how to program this so that you got the right number. The hard part was creating a kind of internal cookie that remembers your number so that if you come back and read this later (for some reason) you will still have the same number you started with. I didn't want it to count you twice. This tiny bit of programming was pretty challenging and took me awhile, so it would really mean a lot to me if you upvoted.

You know, upvoted. Like, upvote?

It's where you vote on the "up" arrow to show your approval of something.

Is this your first time on the Internet?

No, you'll really like it here, maybe. It's full of... stuff. Don't be afraid to upvote. If you hold out for the really good things to upvote you'll find they never quite come, but upvoting right away puts you in the right frame of mind for, well, for the general level of the Internet.

So if you could just hit that upv...

You want to know what the general level of the Internet is?

I don't know. It's okay I guess. I'm more of an upvoter kind of a person, glass is half full even if it's empty. So if you could just click on the upvote...

No, not with your finger on the screen, with your mouse.

No, the left button.

What do you mean where's the upvote button?



I don't have an upvote button.

Atch, no worries.

You probably guessed this already:

This all is its own reward.

It sort of has to be.

Post a Comment

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.
