Comments and Tips Always Welcome

There are two ways a writer feels appreciated for his work:

(1) Reaction, positive or negative, from readers, demonstrating that his writing is reaching an attentive audience; and

(2) Payment for his product.

That means that comments regarding articles to this blog are always welcome, as are tips through the PayPal tip jar (to your left) or purchases from advertisers, especially Amazon.com.

Also, new visitors are encouraged to explore a little bit. You may have been brought here for one purpose, but I like to think of this blog as the stacks of a library, through which browsing brings unexpected delight and reward. New visitors (especially those attracted through search terms like "Dave Moffatt" or "Aaron Carter") might be interested in my postings about high school proms or about courageous teen playwright Sabrina Audrey Jess.

Other visitors may prefer to browse my postings on theatre, such as my multi-part tribute to Stephen Sondheim on his 75th birthday, or my reviews of plays and musicals like Ragtime and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Articles about recent movies and TV shows or the Virginia Film Festival might also catch your eye.

Still others may be more interested in the articles about Virginia politics, education policy, the U.S. Supreme Court, or lowering the drinking age.

Whatever intrigues you, please stay for a while. Enjoy your visit, and thank you all for your support! If you like what you see, please tell your friends to visit, too.
