This, dear readers, is my 101st post. I started this blog in November 2011 with the intention of reviewing Seydel harmonica. Yes, I liked my first Seydel so much, I started a blog about it. Well, I have only bought one other Seydel since then because no one in Toronto will carry them (despite my best efforts at dropping the name all over town) and because the amount of time it takes to purchase a harmonica online is just a few seconds longer than the time it takes buyer’s remorse to set in. So it goes. I still cling to the hope that one day I can make this blog popular enough that Seydel will want to send me a harmonica of their own accord. (I’m DYING to play a harmonic minor that isn’t a Lee Oskar!)
But what this blog has turned into since then is something that is so much more beautiful to me than a harmonica review. It has become my own little island in the internet sea where I can keep all the nifty harmonica stuff I find. I love when I get to spend a weekend morning sitting on the couch surfing harmonica searches and discovering new and wonderful things. Ok, sometimes they haven’t been exactly “wonderful” but they have always been at least mildly entertaining! I’ve discovered harmonica art, mused about harmonica techniques and even posted my own music. And it would all be for naught if it weren’t for you, dear reader.
I want to say thank you to all of you who come check in regularly, even when I haven’t posted in a week or two. I want to thank those of you who have recommended me to others, liked a post or left a comment. It absolutely makes my day to sit down and see that I’ve had people stop in and check out what I’m posting. I’ve managed to amass over 8,000 views from 70 countries and it absolutely makes my soul smile.
Thank you to each one of my followers, each one of my readers, and each one of my visitors. I couldn’t and wouldn’t do this without your support. Thanks for reading.
