I am getting a little puzzled, you see. My sitemeter counter assures me there have been 600-plus visits to my blog since I uploaded my last post, and for a provincial homebound non-celebrity, that is something to be surprised and pleased about, certainly. But the same sitemeter figures tell me that the average reading time is just a few minutes: which means that far from browsing through my older posts, most visitors don't even take the time needed to read through my home-page article slowly and carefully. Obviously that also explains why, apart from those who write senseless and ignorant abuse, so few people get back with serious and intelligent comments!
One recently-acquired aficionado has complained about why I don't write more frequently. Intelligent, informed and decent comments/suggestions/criticism will certainly go a long way to fire me with enthusiasm.
