Tyler Cowen’s and Alex Tabarrok’s blog, Marginal Revolution just clocked 50 million visitors to a picture of fireworks.
While Our Dinner Table has nowhere near that kind of traffic, I did want to take the opportunity to thank the readers and commenters to this blog.
I enjoy writing it and I get many benefits from it. It gives me writing practice. It allows me to iron out my thoughts on topics I find interesting. It gives me a place to vent. Some people collect cars or Coca-Cola memorabilia, I like to “collect” ideas that I find compelling and persuasive that either convinced me to change my mind or think a little differently on a subject, or at least, better articulate why I believe what I do.
I find this blog to be an excellent way to collect those ideas, because I can access it anywhere that has an internet connection and search on it (using the little search box in the right margin). And, I do. Frequently.
I also find it very motivating knowing a few people take time out of their busy lives to read this. Whether you do it because you love it, like it or hate it, it’s an honor and I appreciate it.
I would like to make a few requests.
First, I love to hear from you. I greatly appreciate comments. I think those add a great deal of value and perspective. I especially like disagreement. I find that challenging and it helps me identify and address holes in my thinking.
Each post has a Leave a Comment link at the bottom of it. Feel free to click and comment. This blog does not require you use your real name or provide your email when commenting.
If you enjoy Our Dinner Table, please share it with others who you might think will love it, like it or hate it too.
If you have feedback for me, let me know. I like feedback.
Finally, if you have any topics that you wonder what or why I believe what I do, just ask. I would love to do more reader-inspired blog posts.
