I don’t say it enough . . . thank you.
I am referring to regular readers of this blog.
As I write this, the blog has 752 followers. The majority of them have done little beyond look at one or two posts and thrown a “like” my way. Many have done even less; they followed Disperser Tracks because they had something to sell.
But there is a small number of followers out there who not only read this blog, but also regularly contribute in the form of encouragement, feedback, and compliments.
I would still have this blog even if no one contributed; even if no one read it. Indeed, that was the case for many posts during the first few years.
But I can’t deny that encouragement helps. Even compliments, which I have yet to master gracefully accepting without feeling weird, help me by letting me know that somewhere someone gets something from what I do, be it writing or photography.
Know that I also appreciate honesty. I do want to know if something does not work. Give an honest opinion, and I will welcome it. Not only welcome it, but I gladly hear it and fairly consider it.
Yes, I do understand that just as I’m often uncomfortable accepting compliments, many people feel uncomfortable expressing negative reactions. That’s fine; know that if you ever want to, that option is there, and don’t worry about damaging what is an incredibly huge ego.
Anyway, I don’t want to drag this out, so here’s what I want to repeat:
As I approach the fifth anniversary of this blog, I look back at what is now a long association with a number of individuals who take amazing photographs, write amazing things, are a positive addition to the blogging community, and still find time to keep tabs on what I do.
For that, my sincere thanks.
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so. I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards. I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way. That would mean something to me.

Note: to those who may click on “like”, or rate the post; if you do not hear from me, know that I am sincerely appreciative, and I thank you for noticing what I do.
