Turns out I'm the worst motormouth over there. Who knew? (Rhetorical question!)
Surely does not seem like it. I can vividly remember, as if it were last week, my eyes bugging out as I read Phil's completely-unexpected invitation to join him in this new team blog he was thinking of. I literally did not reply for a day or two as I recall, because I feared he'd written the wrong Dan. I wanted to be able to cherish the illusion a bit longer.
But I did answer, we did start the blog, and here we are. A lot has changed. Maybe I should do a post Over There about that. But one nice spill-off is that Pyro resulted in more visitors hitherward. So I get to inflict my eclectic variousness on a wider array of innocent souls... which is nice.
I forget my daily traffic before. It was no higher than the low hundreds, I'm sure. Now the weekday average is more like 800 visits, give or take. It doesn't make me a big dog, but that's okay. My dear wife calls me a "semi-famous blogger," and I'm plenty grateful for that.
The difference I usually design between the two blogs was best captured by a commenter — I wish I'd saved it! He said that Pyro was like listening to a pastor teach, while BibChr is like hanging around with a pastor, and just hearing about what's interesting to him from day to day.
Anyway, if the ride's been half as good for 51%+ of my readers as it has been for me, it's a "win" all around. Either way, I am continually grateful to God for His blessing, to Phil for the opportunity, and to you for reading.
