Sunday open chat: happy half a birthday to us all!
without you folks, I’d just be shouting into the wind
holy fucking shit!
six months ago, I started up this page here at substack with the half-baked notion that I might try my hand at writing something longer than a tweet.
I had no expectations of anything. if I had, I might have spent more than 90 seconds coming up with a name for this site.
I figured I might write a couple of things a week for a little while and get tired of it and go on to the next shiny object.
here we are, 6 months later, and wow, we have a real community here.
that is flattering and humbling and … I really didn’t see it coming.
so I want to thank all of the people who signed up to receive the emails and I especially want to thank all of the people who have become commenters here.
really. I fucking love reading your comments. I love it when you folks banter with each other. so many of you are clearly wittier and more knowledgeable than I.
it’s nice to be part of something that isn’t toxic and hateful and I have all of you folks to thank for that. you have made this place what it is.
without you, I’d just be shouting into the wind. and that gets old fast.
happy fucking half a birthday to all of us.
