Reader Appreciation Series: Stringer Bell

After a long and patient search, I think I finally located the very first comment Stringer Bell left on my blog. I think it was here but if I’m wrong, Stringer Bell will correct me. If I’m right about this, he has been reading the blog for pretty much as long as it existed. I feel very happy that I haven’t started to bore him yet.

Stringer Bell is a long-time reader whom I absolutely adore. I hope he doesn’t decide to abandon the blog because that would be very sad for me. He is incredibly brilliant, and after leaving comments for years, he still manages to surprise me with his insights. Stringer Bell is passionate, opinionated, and has a great sense of humor. He is an intellectual with a wide range of interests who seems to know everything that deserves to be known.

Stringer Bell is also a very kind and thoughtful person but this is something that will remain between him and me. 🙂

  1. You are too kind.

    I am subscribed to maybe a 100+ blogs and yours is the only one that has compelled me to comment. I don’t think there’s a blog with readership statistics comparable to yours where the author takes the time out to personally respond to every comment. I think it’s awesome!

    Thanks again, your words made my day.

    P.S. My first comment was on a post about Wikileaks and Assange on blogspot, where I (surprise, surprise) disagreed with you vehemently re: its usefulness.

      – I feel like the comments are the past part of blogging. As the time progresses, the silly people go away and only bright, fascinating commenters with a lot to contribute remain.
