I get a strange feeling when I see the name of this blog here. Most of these blogs have influenced me, either by encouraging me to write or recommending a new book.

I've posted my real first name. Very few who visit here don't know me. Now, you do, in that pseudo-lovefest of internet connections. Or, at least you think you do.
