First I start getting links from other blogs, then I get visited by from holy Google searchbot, then I start getting comments(!), Now Informed Comment has (albeit indirectly) copied my ideas . Now I can say I have a real blog. All I can add is if you like what I say - please tell your friends and link to me - I want to see my Technocrati rating break the 400,000 barrier!
Expect more in the future.
