Perhaps blogger doesn't count the groups of pirates that hang out around the coast stealing Starbucks' internet so they can catch up on my latest post, but I won't make the same mistake (especially because pirates can be vicious when their feelings are hurt).
And just like blogger, perhaps my non-nautical reader doesn't believe this section of my readership exists, but I assure you that pirates have a long standing interest in my blog. Frankly, all the pirates of the rainbow have told me that they enjoy this blog including Bluebeard, Blackbeard, One-eyed Electric Lime, Crazy Captain Cerulean, Hot Hook-Hands Magenta and even Peg-leg Purple Mountain's Majesty. Perhaps you've made the mistake of believing that I've made up several of these pirates, but I suspect that once the cold hook hands of Hot Hook-Hands Magenta finds you in the middle of the night and the last thing you see before being blinded is a hot magenta mask and cape then you'd be willing to believe that these pirates are real. But if you still choose not believe me, consider that well documented pirates from across time and space have also enjoyed my ramblings such as Sir Francis Drake (totally a pirate - don't deny it), Anne Bonny and Calico Jack.
Why do pirates love my blog so much? Because just like a true pirate, I keep it real - and I love manatees.
