Today marks the three-month anniversary of Slowin’ Down with Fast Eddie. I’d like to thank everyone for their support and encouragement so far. I’m having fun. I hope I’m making you smile. Slowin’ Down has enabled me to keep in touch with friends and family who I don’t often get to see (as well as those I see every day!). It has also reached old friends and colleagues who I haven’t seen or heard from for many years. It has even reached new friends that I have yet to meet. Amazingly, despite my writing 100 posts over three months, Slowin’ Down alienates far fewer people than I do in real life. So I will no longer be seeing people in person. If you want to get in touch, just post a comment and send pictures.
So far Slowin’ Down with Fast Eddie has over 11,000 cumulative page views, with over 1,000 page views in just the past week alone. There are currently 60 email subscribers who receive posts directly by email. On average each post receives 2 1/2 comments directly on the blog and many others on Facebook or Linked-In, plus lots of emails from those of you who are too shy to expose your thoughts publicly (I don’t blame you). The most-viewed posts so far have been Ice Cream (Gelato), Dad’s 80th Birthday, Fort Knox, My Younger Daughter, and Burgers. What was your favorite (see poll below)?
