Quick Study: The Facebook Group

I've started a Facebook group for any readers of Quick Study who would care to join.

Because this isn't a traditional sort of political or literary blog -- communist trucker hats and No Wave funk being more typically part of the menu here than publishing news or meditations on what may lurk behind Hillary's cold, dead eyes -- the public for it is never going to be huge. I have come to accept this. Not thrilled, but resigned.

But after several months, Quick Study seems to have a steady audience of several hundred people per week. It looks like a few dozen of you come around every day or so, with an occasional spike of traffic going beyond that (such as the 2000 or so people who visited in one day when Andrew Sullivan linked here last month).

Anyway, in the spirit of building "community" (as the buzzword has it), I figure the group will be a way for people to see what one another look like.

If interested, just type "Quick Study" into the search engine in Facebook. You might be able to go to the group's page directly here, but I can't be sure. Somebody please try it and let me know. Either way, it will ease me up the slope of the learning curve that much more.

the link appears to work;
i seem to've successfully
registered with "facebook".
here's hoping this wasn't
a ghastly mistake.
(wanna bet my spam level
doesn't increase?)

no, wait. typing "quick study"
into the search engine
produced nothing recognizable
to me as having anything
to do with this blog.
also i seem unable to discern
what the heck facebook
is even *for*.
hmmm ...

i finally got it:
you've gotta type
"scott mclemee"
in the search field
(*then* select "quick study").
i've got a bad feeling
about this ...
(but'll quit posting
the blow-by-blow...)

Thanks for letting me know. I signed up a few months ago and doing so hasn't resulted in any spam. Actually that's one thing I'll say for it, so far.

The link took me there after I logged in, no problem.
