You're The Lucky Winner!

Note: As of this morning, this post has officially been visited by Marcia and therefore does not qualify you as the "official" first person (see attached comment). I deeply apologize if I have gotten your hopes up of winning something spectacular, only to bring you crashing down to the ground into a pile of disappointed debris, that was not my intention. Even though you did not win the honor of being the first person to visit my blog, I sincerely hope you can find it in your heart to continue to visit my site and (hopefully) enjoy my musings.

Congratulations!
You are officially the first person to visit my blog!

I know this because of the super-secret site meter that tells me whenever someone has viewed this thing, and to date no one (besides me) has yet to stop on by. Until now!

Actually, I kind of like the fact that it has taken this long. There's been a certain amount of security in the anonymity
I've been allowed during this beginning "development" process. Knowing that someone hasn't been watching over my shoulder as I figure out what to say and how to say it has helped a lot. In fact, in my very first post I talked about my insecurity of starting this thing and expressed my concern over my head exploding when someone does actually read this.

But I'm ready now. I think I've come to terms with the fact that other people are now reading this and I am officially an open and valid target of criticism, praise, simple acknowledgement or even plain indifference.

And now, thanks to you, my world has changed forever. I am no longer the tree that nobody heard fall. I can no longer claim to be anonymous. I have been validated, I HAVE BEEN REVEALED!

Enough drama already?

Sorry. I'll bet you never expected that by simply clicking on whatever you clicked on to get to this place that you would be causing such an event. That's quite a lot of responsibility. But you should be proud. Somehow, amidst all the other millions of blogs that are being written every day, among all the internet searches and links possible - you have managed to navigate yourself here - to my humble little world, and have made a difference in my life.

In fact, I imagine the odds of finding this link are quite low. Boy, I sure hope I haven't used up all your good luck for the day and wasted it on this! Or worse I really hope you didn't buy a lottery ticket this morning.

If that's true, then welcome to my world!

Can I be the first person to comment? I enjoy your writing and humor a lot. It's only a matter of time before lots of other people find their way here!

Congratulations Marcia - you ARE the official first person to visit! And thank you for the nice comment!

I've been wondering when someone would land here. Ironic that you landed just above my Lottery Loser post. Hmmm.

Stop by again. I'd love to someday see my site meter full of friends.
