Wow, You Guys Really Like Lorem Ipsum!

As I prepared to launch this new blog as part of Eye on Books I wrote all the code, tested it offline, tinkered, tweaked, and finally did a “test” page live on the site to make sure everything was working. I did all I could to keep that testing behind the curtain, cleverly giving it the “tantalizing” name “Test post,” even concealing it from my RSS feed.

But somehow the spiders found it, and in the last 24 hours it has become — as Jack Paar famously used to intone, “I kid you not” — one of the most-read posts on Eye on Books in weeks.

In case you missed it, allow me to quote from my brilliant first paragraph:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Sed ligula nisl, dictum nec pharetra sed, interdum sed felis. Nam nec quam et nulla rhoncus mollis. Mauris leo massa, dapibus eu fringilla sit amet, ultrices sit amet est. Quisque hendrerit leo ut tellus viverra posuere feugiat ligula rhoncus.

Gee. I’m even a better writer than I thought. No wonder it’s become such a popular post.

Going forward I can’t promise that all my posts will be that incisive, that insightful, that erudite. (How do you top Lorem Ipsum?) But I do plan to write frequently, with, I hope, frankness and fun about what it’s like interviewing authors.

Coming up next, though: Fusce ut nunc magna.
