I thought I was special

I am behind the times. When I set this blog up, I thought I was on the cutting edge...doing something different. But today, I read that there are now over THREE MILLION bloggers in Japan. That means one out of every 40 people here have their own web site. And that number is expected to double in the next two years! So, I am not special...I am late!

It also means that Kaz's comments earlier this week are right...I am going to have to be funny...there is too much competition.

If I needed any proof, the article also reports that 16.5 million people in Japan read blogs. Considering my new visitor counter (>>>>) says there have been 39 this week, I am not doing so well in comparison. Might have to take that down. Then again, when I installed it, I had the option of setting the first number, so I could have put "100" or "1,000" and made it look like this was a popular site. Maybe I could go back and put "16.5 million"...I could pretend everyone in Japan is reading this.

From tomorrow, I should have plenty of entertaining things for you to see and read. I will fly to London for the weekend and then I am off to Europe for holiday. Stay tuned...
