introduction to interactivity


thank you all so much for reading my blog. i don't know why you do, but you do and i appreciate it. i've received many compliments and encouragements and it means a lot to me. you start a blog to write down your thoughts and see if anyone's interested in reading them, so when it's reinforced that people are reading and want to read more it makes me happy.

my next series of blogs will be about restaurant etiquette. by series i may mean 5 or 3 or 1, who knows. but i plan on writing about this subject because i think people need to read it. am i qualified as some kind of expert? no. i'm just writing because a year and a half ago i never worked in a restaurant and since working as a server, host, and busser, i've learned a lot that i didn't know before. so i'd like to share these things with you in hopes that we can all become better restaurant customers.

do you like this idea? do you not like this idea? do you have suggestions about what you might want/need to know? please comment and let me know your thoughts.



  1. Hey Jake. I just wanted to tell you that I have found your words and thoughts very inspiring. After reading a few of your posts I feel like i should get off the couch and do something important, or at least productive. Thanks for the motivation, friend.

  2. Jake,

    I fully support your idea to write a series of posts on restaurant etiquitte. Anything that can enlighten the masses, including myself, on how to be more courteous would definitely be a meaningful contribution to society. I also have a suggestion for a follow-up series on concert etiquitte, which I see now as immediately necessary after having been to a concert where my dear wife was hit not once, but twice with the same flying sandal. Perhaps I will write a blog to mirror yours and we can spread our message of encouragement to the all who are in need of a reflection upon manners.
