I’ve been blogging about baseball for about two and a half years now. During these past couple of years, I’ve been fortunate enough to have become part of an informal community of bloggers and readers.
When I began the On Deck Circle, I had no idea how many people, if any, would bother to read my stories and articles about baseball. I simply began to do it, as all of you who do it can attest, with the simple hope that someone out there would notice and enjoy my work.
To my amazement, I’ve now had over 26,000 hits on this blog (a modest total, to be sure.) More importantly, I’ve been engaged in a continuous dialogue about baseball (and other topics) with people whom I’ve grown to appreciate and respect over the years. You know who you are, but it occurred to me maybe other people don’t.
