Roomie just came home and showed me a thing. Did you folks know there's a counter on the right hand side that shows how many times the blog gets visited? Because I did not know that and it is my blog and I have just seen it and HOLY SMOKEBALLS HOW DID I GET TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND VIEWS
I don't even know what to say. I don't know what to say. I thought maybe a hundred or so people I was way way off how did this even happen?
How is it that so many people are reading the crap I write? I shout at movies. In text. For fun. Where are all you people coming from?
Well actually, I know that now too, and there's thousands of you all over the world. Finland, Belgium, New Zealand, Japan, France, the USA well I guess that one would be particularly obvious BUT STILL. HOW DID THEY KEEP THIS HIDDEN FROM ME? Was the thingy there this whole time?
I don't know how to feel. I'm ridiculously bowled over with happy but at the same time it's just... how do me and my stupid rambling about not having time for shit have so many people reading? What do you do with an audience that size? Is it growing? Is it shrinking? I'm so lost right now.
I wonder how many people are enjoying themselves and I'm just not hearing from them? I hope it's all of you. I really do. I had no idea that so many people were coming to look at my thoughts. WHAT DO YOU EVEN SAY TO AN AUDIENCE THIS SIZE? I'm lost. Completely. Hello? Hello. Hello, world. I'm Jeremy, and you've been reading me. A lot, it turns out. Some of you talk back, some of you send money for pizza, a lot of you are just quietly out there. There's an eerie thought.
I guess I should say how much I appreciate all of you who read, but you know that. I just didn't know how many of you there were! I can't promise to change my speed to keep you interested; my health has to come first and that's going to get in the way from time to time. I can't promise to like the things you want me to like, hate the things you want me to hate, or even choose to spend my time with the things Roomie and Lacy suggest for me (I have so far, but it's always up in the air. That Movie came damn close). All I can really promise is that if I have the chance to enjoy something, you'll get to share it with me.
I'm just rambling right now and I'm really sorry for that but I just don't even know how to take this in. This is amazing and incredible and so far beyond anything I ever expected! I hope everyone continues to have a good time on this weird journey, and... just wow. Shoutouts to all around the world, all you wonderful people who are coming to share a bit of your time with a wacky crumpled-up athlete-geek from Butthole Nowhere, Canada. It means a lot to me.
