My most heartfelt thanks to everyone for their very kind comments. It's really nice to be appreciated.
Until now, I liked to tell myself that I was doing something important---fulfilling my mission---but it's not unique. Many others are doing the exact same thing and even better! Even the same subject matter at times. But I'll tell you what is unique and that is my relationships with the people in my life and most of all my relationship with HKB"H. At this time I do not believe that I can rise to higher levels of holiness or fulfill my mitzvot bein adam l'Makom and bein adam l'chavero to my utmost ability with a computer in my house, so I'm going to try my best to do teshuva for this and make a fresh start.
I don't want to be investing only my leftover time in the non-cyber world. I'm not responsible for the world at large, but for the world in which I move and breathe. We keep hearing the message that teshuva is what will bring Mashiach quickly and painlessly, so this is my first priority and my best attempt to do just that. I sense that time has grown very, very short.
Best wishes and hatzlacha raba to all of you, my readers and fellow-bloggers. It's been great! But the future will be even greater, with G-d's help!!
