It doesn't happen often, but I am occasionally surprised to meet a stranger who says, "Hey, I read your blog!" I recently had a fellow Navy officer come to my office for a meeting, and he recognized one of the framed pictures over my desk that was also posted on my blog. He told me when he received orders to PCS to the Pentagon, one of the Navy officers in his new office sent him an email with a link to my "Pentagon Gouge." Wow! I'm honored to be included in the unofficial Pentagon welcome aboard packet, and glad to know some have found the information I've shared here to be useful.
That gave me a nudge that I should get back in the habit of sharing things on my blog that may be of use to folks working in the Pentagon or the National Capital Region in general.
To that end, please tell me (comment or email), how do you keep up on your blog reading? For me, I used to have a long list of blogs I read on Google Reader. I was out at sea when Google Reader went away, and I just never recovered or reconstituted any means of keeping up to date on all the blogs I used to read. How do you do it? I know I keep up to date on a lot of things via Facebook. Maybe I should change this into a Facebook page. What do you think?
