First, I started doing this diary weblog thing, and it was good. Nobody much noticed what I was doing, but it warmed my ego, and gave me a place to note little things that I discovered. Then I noticed that it seemed to be taking off; what was more surprising to me at the time was that they seemed to be being read.
Now, I'm actively being sought out, along with a number of people (well, online presences) with aligned interests. My wisdom is now being disseminated to a wider world out there. I'd better be more careful what I say.
(The irony of a diary entry free of Lisp content, discussing a Lisp diary aggregator, is not lost on me).
