I really appreciate Fred's kind words over at his blog, Real Debate Wisconsin. He runs a real blog site over there, with visitors and everything, but he finds me amusing enough that from time to time he gives me kind words, and I appreciate it.
He's got radar, too: every time I start feeling like my blog is a millstone around my neck, he drops an unsolicited compliment that makes me feel better about the whole affair. Lest you feel sorry for me, though, remember this: I do this basically because I want to and no other reason. So it would be utterly narcissistic for me to whine about how hard it is.
After all, I can quit any time. Yeah, that's the ticket!
