Thanks for all your comments. As I thought, it was interesting to hear everyone’s stories.
Now that the blog is held on my server, I can see how many people are visiting it. (I was never able to do that with the ALC blog.) One interesting thing I have noticed is that a lot of people were visiting the old post, even after we moved on to this week’s topic.
