Feels right for the amount of posts and my general level of web activity (commenting on other blogs/linking back)…  ie not great, despite chirpy wordpress auto-guff above. Anticipating a busy first half to 2011, so won’t be able to invest much more time here, but I’m wondering if broadening the scope and/or tweaking the way I blog may make for a more satisfying/popular experience. Think I’ll fold my abortive Healthy Climate back into this blog for starters.]
