A summary of things I've recently noticed happening to me, as the direct result of having a weblog.
- Coworkers say things to me like "you can't blog this, but..." and "No way. If I tell you, it'll probably show up on your blog!"
- After introducing myself to a group of people (say, before giving a 1.5 hour "introduction to MySQL" type of talk), one of the folks in the audience also chimes in "and he has a popular weblog."
- Random e-mail from journalists: "Hey, I read that piece you wrote about foo. Can we talk on the phone later today?"
- Werid e-mail from people I've never heard of asking the strangest things. Often, I'm a convenient lightening rod for disgruntled Yahoo users. That's always fun. Except when it's not, which is most of the time.
But I'm sure I'm not the only one.
