Thank you

I'd like to thank all of the people who read any page on my blog. I enjoy writing it because I'm learning so much about the history of University of Houston athletics. I hope others are enjoying it too.

But I'd really like to thank those who have been posting comments lately, in particular Commish and SportsCardGirl for commenting multiple times. I've been posting off and on for over three years now, and I've had more comments in the last 3 weeks than I had in the last 3 years before that.

This blog has had over 26,000 visitors (although definitely not all unique). That shocks me. I didn't know if I would ever have 10 visits total. And I appreciate everyone who has visited. But you wonder who those readers are. Many come from google? Are they just showing up on my page and leaving because there is little interest in what they found? Are they just interested in the one page, never to return? I don't know.

But getting comments means that someone actually reviewed my post AND thought enough of it to respond. It's a little corny, but it really does mean alot. And it makes me think that I should do the same thing when I visit other blogs or personal websites. It keeps you going.

When I committed to counting down the years, posting at least once a day until football season started, I wasn't sure I could do it. I rarely posted more than a couple of times a week (and I may go back to that when the countdown is over). But I haven't missed a day. To tell the truth, the extra visits and comments help keep me on track.

Keep on writing! It's hard to keep going at it sometimes. Life and other stuff gets in the way, but it's rewarding to get those comments sometimes.
