-E-mail received earlier today from a French visitor

I know I haven’t posted in a while, but this is ridiculous.

It’s been 13 days since I’ve last written (and the last post was a collection of recipes rather than the usual intellectual highbrow thoughts presented here at the kingdom).  I’ve been thinking, but nothing has really inspired me–and I doubt people want to read me complaining about the cold.  But today, inspiration came to my e-mail box.

First, I received note that the one little bit of “marketing” I do for the Kingdom is set to expire at the end of the month.  It’s not that much, so I’ll pony up to re-sponsor the page of the Yankees’ greatest Japanese pitcher.  The only trick is remembering to do so.  I have two-and-a-half more weeks.

The second thing to hit my e-mail box is the e-mail I’ve included at the top of this post.  I’m not going to publish the guy’s name or Web site, but this guy in France wants to include the Kingdom as part of his directory of French Web sites.  Granted, if I were to write him an e-mail in French it would probably come out as bad as his did in English (and that’s with six years of French classes!).  Still, after seeing his site, I doubt it would help me with traffic and I’m fine with this site being read by the five people kind enough to visit whenever they do (thanks Mom!) and those who come here expecting something else.

So to those of you who visit, there will be more writing in the coming days, weeks and months (with Lost starting in less than 16 days, you can bet I’ll have something to write about).  And thanks for stopping by.

  1. I get these mails all the time. “Your web site has no keywords!” “Your web site has no Google juice” – all sorts of crap. It’s annoying and pure spam, but sometimes it makes me smile because at least someone (or something) is hitting my web site!

  2. Well, I googled some of the key phrases and didn’t find them anywhere, so maybe this is someone actually trying to do all of the work himself.

    Where can I get some Google juice?

  3. I visit your site when I get new posts on my RSS feed. Other than that, you don’t get visits from me.

    Can’t wait for Lost. I watched the entire series from beginning to end(?) a few weeks back in preparation. I’m psyched.

    And 24 starts again Sunday. It looks like it’s going to be a good season. We’ll see, though!

  4. I know what you mean Levy- I now use the Google reader for most of the blogs I hit up on a regular basis. Glad to see your blog is back up and running.
    13 days until Lost and counting.
    On the other hand, 24? I’ll watch it, but I’m not holding my breath.
