Well, it is done.
Not bad, two for two on the promise to type what I do hand-write. This could get to be a habit: consistency and following through on my promises.
Before I get into the questions raised in the last two letters, I had a thought. I am glad we have kept my identity secret. It saves a lot of unintended consequences.
Now that my ability to wait is improving, I had a thought on a possible way to communicate with some of the more faithful readers. Could you set up a second blog, registered uses only, and this one would be explicitly for maintaining an on going dialogue? It would only be updated once every two weeks or so.
You would send me any incoming comments, then I would type responses, that you would post, and allow to gather comments for a week or so, send me the comments, and I would answer them. I am thinking this would probably not need more than once a month to download the incoming and then after another ten days or so, you would post my monthly answer.
This way I could feel like I have some pen pals, still keep my identity a secret and be able to deal more directly with those readers that are reading the posts day in day out. By learning to wait for your letters, I am getting a whole lot more patient.
The other aspect would be that by enforcing a standard collection time, and then freezing the blog till I answer, I would be better able to tell what is being posted.
