Thank You Gentle Readers

gentlereaderI just noticed that I went over 1,000 comments on my blog over the New Year. Thank you gentle readers.

Do you remember Ms. Manners using that, gentle readers? I always thought it was interesting. A way of giving a name to the nameless and faceless people who read what you write but don’t leave any sign of having been there. It is a way of feeling less alone in a crowd.

What would you call your readers? Think for a minute… be serious about it. You might use it as a sign off line, just as Ms. Manners used to (or still does?).
