I made a quick trip to the Valley this morning and returned to the city in time for dinner.
Before I returned, I spoke with my mother's next door neighbour. I had given him and his wife a couple of my Bevboy's Blog business cards last year. Turns out that his wife has become a regular reader of the blog.
I am flattered by this delightful news. Moved, even. Hampered by sentiment.
It makes me wonder.
It makes me wonder: Who is the reader of this blog who lives the farthest away from Halifax, Nova Scotia?
I can look at the analytics of this blog any time I want. I used to read them quite often. I have decided, though, that it would be more fun if someone reading these words took a moment to write me and tell me where he or she lives.
You may write me in any of the following ways:
When I post the link on my facebook, you can just say hi and that you read the blog. I can see where you're from by clicking on your name.
You can send me an email to this here email address. In the email, tell me who you are, and where you are.
You can respond to my twitter announcing this blog post. I can see where you're from by reading your account information.
The person who is the farthest away from Halifax, as the crow flies, wins... I am not sure yet. Some crap lying around the house that I don't want any more. Maybe some mis-matched cutlery. Possibly a John Grisham novel that I have 2 copies of. I'll think of something.
Please, folks: Tell me you're a regular reader of the blog. Mention a post or two that you particularly liked. This is your chance to tell me what you really think of me and the blog that I have worked so hard on for the better part of 4 years now.
The contest starts now, and concludes fitfully on June 10, 2011 at 11:59PM EST.
