On June 2, 2007 Falling Rock National Blog went live.
It’s nice to know that friends, or even strangers, can log on and know exactly what I’ve been thinking on any given day. My heart swells close to bursting to know that I am loved about 10-15 times per day (sometimes more when I talk about Cat Power, Ian Wilson, or mayonnaise).
We’ve traveled a long road together and there are many posts yet to be written. I hope you will continue to support the blog by visiting and commenting. This blog was originally intended to be a supplement to my comic strip. Although I still use it to comment on Falling Rock, the blog has also become a way to talk about matters – important matters – beyond the scope of four panels per day.
Milestones in the brief life of Falling Rock National Blog:
The first post I completely made up was also a signal that I didn’t have to write about comics all the time.

Thanks for reading, thanks for all the comments, and thanks for making me feel like less of a hermit and more of a crackpot. It’s a fine line, and I think I’ve crossed over to the better side.
