They're not all gonna be winners: Reading an everyday blog

At one point in the memorable (to me, anyway) David S. Pumpkins skit on Saturday Night Live, the wonderful Kenan Thompson, an elevator operator in a haunted house, says, "Hey look, it's 100 Floors of Frights. They're not all gonna be winners."

I often think about that line when I'm writing a blog post I know is likely to amuse only me and almost no one else. More often than not, low page view numbers on that post prove me correct.

I am truly grateful that anyone would ever choose to read even one of the entries here. The fact that many of you read regularly, and some read every day without fail, is immensely gratifying.

All of which is to say that, posting every day as I've done since Nov. 30th, pushes you to the limits of your creativity. Some days, ideas come readily. Others, it's a struggle.

Then again, you as a reader get exactly what you pay for here, so maybe I shouldn't feel too bad.

I appreciate your feedback on the good posts and your patience with the not-as-good ones.

Like today, for example.


  1. Funny! Writing is difficult but you manage to do it very well.

    1. Thank you! I always enjoy it (even when the ideas don't come easily).
