Guess what! The other day a patron stopped by the reference desk and told me, "I like your blog."
My neck craned up like a startled chicken's. "What? You read my blog?!"
"Yes. I knew it was you by your picture." (On the left there.)
I knew this woman only as a patron, didn't even know her name. I was flabbergasted. Hardly anyone reads the blog, as far as I can tell -- even my hubby doesn't read it. "How did you find it?" I asked, mystifed.
"Well, you know, I read blogs by some other New Orleans bloggers, and they link to other bloggers, so you follow the links, that's how. I liked your post about K-Ville. It's bad."
(I wonder who's linking to me? Jeffrey, of course. Adastros? Editor B? I doubt it.)
"Uh, thanks!" I said. "Leve a comment some time!"
So, heck. Imagine that! People are actually reading this thing. While we were having this conversation, another patron wanted to know my blog address and read it too, so I gave it to her. Wow! Networking!
So, welcome, Mystery Patron Readers! Leave a comment and say hello! I'd love to know who else is out there!
And I guess I should take this opportunity to state that this blog contains only my own thoughts and opinions, and IN NO WAY represents the opinions or policies of the New Orleans Public Library or the City of New Orleans.
