I checked back on my first few posts and looked at the comments there. I was very happy to see that of the first ten people who commented on my blog nine of them are still regular visitors. To those who take the time to comment on my posts all I can say is "Thank you". I have learned a great deal from the comments that have been left. Many of readers to my blog (based on blogger stats ) seem probably in search of information for a school project. Once I saw a huge spike up in readership all drawn to one post on a book about WWII in the Philippines. I was happy of course to get the readers but I did laugh when I found out the book was assigned reading at the University of Philippines and I had the only post on the web on this book. I laughed to myself as I imagined a lot of students all turning in my post as their report on the book!. I am inclined to say a lot about my blog, what it means to me, how grateful I am for my very international readership, how blogging has affected my own reading habits but really I just want to say thanks to those who read my blog.
I also want to give a special thanks to my quite brilliant cousin in Texas who has helped me with editing chores.
I will do a second short post on my future blogging and reading plans.
