Heeeeee's back!

Illka, that is. In fact, he's been back for a few months now. Where have I been? Never mind where I've been, The Fourth Checkraise is where I am now!

What's so great about him?

"What's so great about him?"

1) He limits his posts to one paragraph in length. All of the commentary, none of the long-windedness.

2) He promotes other bloggers with his link posts. In the time since he's come back, he's plugged me on three separate occasions (two for posts at In Mala Fide, one at The Spearhead). What a generous guy.

Thanks for the kind words, Audacious. I have been on a roll since I came back from my hiatus and written about 270 posts, so there should be something there that you like. But I can always use extra motivation to write.

Ferdinand: "He promotes other bloggers with his link posts. In the time since he's come back, he's plugged me on three separate occasions (two for posts at In Mala Fide, one at The Spearhead). What a generous guy."

I link to whatever interests me at the moment: if other people find value in the links that I post, it is good for them and no loss for me. This is how the web works, and is its greatest strength.

OneSTDV,

I share Ferdinand's sentiments. The easy digestibility of his concise posts and his reliably sardonic wit. He's the kind of guy you'd love to spend a few hours with in public spaces to hear his commentary directly from the source.

Ilkka,

I'm planning on devoting an upcoming saturday to getting up to speed!

Dennis,

Thank you for bringing the assault on BGC to the attention of the Steveosphere. I've offered him whatever modest assistance I might provide, and will share with readers what we can do to aid him.
