I feel like I am screaming into the void, quite often. Now that I have a paid account, I have checked the setting that alerts weblogs.com to any new posts. Apparently people looking for new journals to read on RSS feed go there, so maybe I'll pick up some new readers. Readers don't always translate into commenters, but I'm lucky to have a some friends that comment often enough that I know people are reading.
Your journal has been a really nice addition to my reading list. We seem to share a lot of interests and a political color. :)
