My following

WordPress has informed me that The Lost Pedestrian has received 200 ‘likes’ and I don’t know how many followers. I am flattered, even if this is not actually real.

I do not mind that most of these ‘likes’ and followers are people or entities or robots who have something to sell (and have not read a single post). I just wish they would be more open about it. I wish they could see that I would be the last person to take offense.

I would not think less of them if they would simply say, “With all due respect, none of us really have time to spend on your blog, and if we did have time, we fear we might not be able to make any sense of it.  But we have an amazing new product we think you might be interested in.”

Some of you are entrepreneurs.

Some of you are merchants of gluten-free paleo foods. I think I would like to try your kale chips.

Some of you are Internet marketers and moneylenders evicted from the temple.

Some of you are evangelicals of some kind or another.

Some of you are travel agents for surfers.

Some of you are cosmeticians.

Some of you are personal development consultants.

Some of you produce reality television shows.

And some of you do various combinations of the above.

I wish all of you well. But I have to be honest and let you know that I’m really quite broke these days and not a very good consumer or customer. I am not asking  you to leave, but you might want to direct your energies elsewhere. This isn’t easy for me to say. Because I really want you to like me.

About The Lost Pedestrian

In my wanderings throughout the moments/days/years, I try in earnest to find the mystical within the mundane and the mundane within the mystical, oftentimes confusing one from the other. I have wandered and roamed through many a city, many a town, in a state of wonder and bewilderment, without necessarily going anywhere. I am easily lost, but eventually found. (I am guessing you have just found me). My sincere hope is that you will find Something in this warehouse of thought, memory and false memory, words, numbers, tangents, murmurs, echoes (lots and lots of echoes), voices, dreams, and other paraphernalia.
