I’ve never thought of myself as a particularly influential person. I don’t have vast masses of people hanging on my words, and I’ve never been a trend-setter. I have my own tastes, and while I’m interested in couture, and the fashion world, it’s an interest based in a love of pretty clothes, and not from any desire to spend a fortune on dresses you can’t actually wear in public.

But today, I feel really influential, because our friend Wintermutt (whose wife does some job that involves human resources software, and is currently spending a lot of time in New York), actually started a blog, just to participate in the projects at CafeWriting.

No one’s ever started a blog because of me, before.

It feels kind of cool.
