January 1, 2019: Happy New Year!

If you’re that single visitor from Nauru, Norfolk Island, Niue, Comoros, or the Central African Republic, let’s hear from ya!

Thanks to all of you who take time out of your day to read these words.  And an especially big thanks to those who read AND take the time to comment!  Big things on the 2019 horizon.  I have a feeling…

  1. takes time to comment

    Seriously though, I’ll be following this blog as long as it’s on here, I expect!

  2. Honestly can’t wait to see what the New Year brings us from you! Especially that yet to be named or name announced show that you worked on so furiously for the last half of the year!!

    Bring on 2019! I have a feeling it’s going to be a good year!

    Much love from Aussie shores,

  3. Wow! That was interesting. You even have fans in Iran and the Vatican. We’re all looking forward to your 2019 projects. And, thank you for your book reviews – I’m adding some of the books you reviewed to my reading list. Happy New Year to you and your entire family (which, of course, includes Akemi and dogs).

  4. Thanks Joe for keeping up your blog. It is extremely entertaining. All the best in 2019!

  5. I hope you are right. I hope the change from 2018 to 2019 is more than just a statistic – Time for some really positive forward motions to take hold, hopefully!

  6. While I am from California, I most likely show that I’m in Illinois as that’s where my work computer is. Always make shopping on line a hoot as I get stores somewhere in Illinois when I forget to change the location first.

  7. Happy new year to you too. No doubt 2019 will be interesting, absolutely. Can’t wait to switch gears on a few things. 2019, year of change!

    Thanks for the stat breakdown!

  8. To this I add these totals the billion gross cold germs that I’m currently being bombarded with on the first day back. So glad coworkers decided to bring those exotic new colds into the office to share. Its like 28 Days Later up in here, I’m hiding in my cube from The Hackers. Scratch that; The Phlegmy Hackers. They come out in the day, mostly. Welcome Nauruans. Totally cool planet name for the SG verse. Happy New Year to all blogees!

  9. I’ve been a slacker. It’s in my nature. I’m all in until something shiny distracts me. In my case the ‘shiny’ thing has been life changes over the past 18 months…I just can’t seem to get back into my old groove. Also, I need to change my computer location to someplace more accessible because it’s just easier to keep up with the blog on my ‘puter, as opposed to my tablet which – for some reason – keeps wanting me to play solitaire…



  10. Wow, truly global.
    I read your blog for Dark Matter updates, future projects and I always check out your recommended book lists. So thank you for that. Happy New Year.
