Alas, because of my disagreement with one reader, I have now activated "comment moderation" (see the preceding post and the comments to the post below that.
What this means is that there will be a delay between when you post comments and when they will appear. I'll try to keep this delay to a minimum.
But don't worry, you can still accuse me of "douchebag move[s]" or whatever else you want.
And please do comment.
I had a nice talk on the phone yesterday with an NYPD sergeant who got in touch with me to talk about my book, police blogs, and policing in general. It was a nice talk and great to get feedback on my blog.
Writing a blog is strange. Because things just go out there and I have no idea who if anybody reads it. And since you're all reading this for free, I don't get paid for it. I always wonder if it's worth it to keep blogging. I could be doing other things. But most of the time I enjoy it or else I wouldn't be doing it.
Stat counters tell me that I have about three- to four-hundred "unique visitors" a day. But in my mind my blog readership consists of the dozen or so people who comment. So please keep the comments coming! Imagine I'm a goldfish who can't see out of the fishbowl. Comments are like flakes of delicious food magically floating down from above. Feed me and I'll keep swimming!
