Call it outreach, call it marketing, call it self-inflicted humiliation, or call it ego. It’s probably a combination of all of the above.

Sure, it’s a way to market my blog (and my first venture into advertising it), but more than that I hope it’ll solicit a friendly wave, maybe a smile or an encouraging word or two, and if I’m really lucky, it might even help invite a conversation with a new friend.
So if you see me gasping, limping, or moaning, yell at me to buck up, quit the whining, and get moving.
Then paddle, peddle, or hobble up next to me, introduce yourself, and we’ll do this thing together!
