Welcome. Especially if you are a new reader. Thanks for stopping by. Please stay a while and check out some of the links over on the right in Favorite Posts or Boating Blogs. If anything provokes or interests you, please leave a comment. You don't have to sign up for Blogger to leave a comment. You can make up a name or even do it anonymously if you prefer.
You'll probably work out that there is a group of twenty or so people that regularly write the comments here. Many of us write blogs about boating and read each others' blogs. But we are not an exclusive club or clique. Newcomers are welcome.
I know from my stats that many people other than the regular commenters read this blog. A lot of you arrive here via a search engine and only read one page; but quite a few of you dig around for a while. But you hardly ever leave a note saying hello and expressing some opinion on the ramblings here. I wonder why?
Just lately for example I've had a fair number of visitors from Australia thanks to the NSW and ACT District Laser Association who placed links to a couple of my jottings in the What's New section on their website. But as far as I can tell, hardly any of these visitors have left a trace. Tidy blokes these Aussie Laser sailors.
How can we welcome these silent mysterious visitors? What would make them want to interact? More provocative subjects? Competitions? Prizes? Lots of questions at the end of every post? What do you think?
