Hey gang -
And I say "gang" advisedly: I just signed up for a visit-counting site and - hells bells! - people are stopping in to see the site. A lot of people!
No one is as surprised as I am. I have no idea who you are, unless you comment, but hot damn, you are visiting. Welcome!
I have been remiss on posting to this blog, in part because I wasn't sure anyone was even paying attention. That is obviously a mis-perception on my part.
Even more, though, I have found that blogging is quite different from what I've done for the last 30 years, and I have had a period of adjustment to this new style. That, and I've been a bit unclear about what I'm doing here. That, too, is becoming clearer.
My editors at The Bee, when they had a criticism, said this: "Dave, it doesn't have to be definitive. It's only a newspaper story." That goes triple for blogging - I am only one person, and I have limited hours in the day, and frankly, no one can be Mr. Grid, right? Even though it's small, it's bigger than one person. So, my tendency to freeze at the sight of too much information, or too many choices, or to feel too responsible to my readers, has worked against me.
So...I will be posting more often, and more often about my own experience, rather than some definitive guide to everything in The Grid, which I can't possibly cover alone. Which is exciting in itself.
So, I am about to head out on my furry bike to take some shots of all the cool stuff I've been seeing around town in my travels over the last few weeks. And putting it right here.
Because YOU are paying attention!
