I always write just for my blog. I don’t write specifically to attract visitors. This is ironically partly due to some hit generating advice which advised “write for yourself, it’s your blog” !

Miraculously the highest rated post is actually a humorous post ! This blog actually has humour in it’s title despite many of the side roads that have been taken. Maybe there will be more such humorous posts in 2011 ?

Happy New Year.
