« What Matters Now: A Free eBook from Seth Godin and Many More! | Main | BYOB to Demijohn »


Bob and I are in the kitchen. I am cooking, and he is reading blogs comments on our website, and, incidentally, eating some rather strange Thai Sensation flavored potato chips:  

"Who is this Robin person? Do you know a Robin?" he asks me. (Names have been changed to make us seem less lame.)

"Robin. I don't think we know her," I say. "Or him," I add helpfully. "What'd they say?"

"Robin... Robin..." He's now clicking through the comment left by Robin to the info page to see if he can't suss this person out a little bit.  "There's no last name and no email."  Bob is like a dog with a bone when it comes to Website Statistics.

"I don't think we know her," I say again. "And stop trying to find it out, cause I like thinking there are people reading our blog who aren't obligated by blood to do so. And if you do figure out who it is don't tell me."

Bob looks up at me blandly. "Disillusions of importance kick knowledge's ass every time," he says.

Damn Straight!

Love the candor! If I was more computer savvy I would concoct various interesting and clever personalities just to make your day!

I frequent many blogs that I've never responded to, I'm sure you have more readers that don't comment. And you guys are definitely one of my favorites!

I second Stephanie's comment.... i read your blog - have no connection to you guys - just think what you are doing is really cool. :)

I read your blog all the time! And I don't have a connection by blood, just high school. Love living vicariously thru your adventures.

No connection, other than I heard about your madcap adventure (via Twitter I think) and have been following ever since!

I also have no connection to you, but enjoy reading your updates.

Ha! This is so funny. We spend a ton of time reading through comments trying to figure out who is who on our site, too. :)

(Just randomly stumbled along your blog. I love reading about others travels, even if I can't manage extended travel myself.)
