A Message for Tortoise Factor Followers

The Tortoise Factor is just a little over one year old.  I am very pleased with its progress.  Statistics tend to support the existence of a growing number of visitors who return again and again.

Thing is, I don’t really know who you are.  Too few of you leave a comment.  I especially want comments and suggestions.  In some cases I have written blogs on a past search topic, e.g. point of view of the writer of the “Tortoise and the Geese.”  That was fun, but it was after the fact.  If I had more suggestions and questions, I could take The Tortoise Factor in new directions — with your help.

You’ve noticed that I am all over the place doing reviews of a few books, offering views on career, the political scene and literature I know a little about.  Believe me, it’s a smattering.  I have a current events focus.

And then a take tangent and post a love poem by George Herbert, a 17th Century preacher and poet.  His poem is timeless and beautiful — at least for me.  It is pleasant to read a traditional sonnet with rime, formal structure and timeless content.  But that’s my take, not  yours.

Please let me know what you think.  I promise not to drown you in emails.  I promise to keep your address confidential — but I’d like to make you friends of the Tortoise.

Steadfast and cautious,

David Milliken

  1. I think it’s difficult to stick to one project–just poetry, just politics, just book reviews. I know–I should speak for myself.
    But I think a blog does not have to be narrowly defined. I like a more eclectic blog . . .

    • I like your site so much that I’ll take your suggestion as encouragement to proceed on current
      course. I am amazed often at what blogs generate views and also at how frequently someone
      digs around in the archives. People like my blog on tortoises and ticks — and that was just a
      referral. Thanks for your comment, Nin.
