Hi all! Just wanted to brag a little. I got TWO awards this past week! Thanks Marjorie and David. I will be passing the awards along some time this week. :-)
So... I just want to state:
Theresa. Yesterday's blog was NOT about you. Even if I did sort of post it two days after your giving my work a crit. It was completely not a hint for you to take a flying leap to... well... use your imagination. ;-)
Person's referred to don't read my blog, somewhat sadly, I might add. But of course, far be it from them to do research into the things they criticize.
Aaaanyway. That isn't what today's post is about. Although yesterday's post did get me thinking.
Writing really does help, doesn't it. Even if (rarely) my perspective on an issue remains unchanged, at least I got my feelings out there in a more socially acceptable way. As supposed to... say... slashing tires, keying cars... slapping unknown strangers, or breathing like Darth Vader.
But... blogging helps a lot more. Because yes, it is the exact same as writing on a piece of paper. Except for one major difference.
Any old piece of paper won't give me comments.
Because, ladies and gents, you really made my day yesterday.
Other times, you guys sympathize or give advice and/or support. It sometimes helps me more than you can imagine.
So, for everyone of you that has ever commented on my posts:
And for the silent masses (yes, check my stats when I log in after I checked comments. Every. Single. Time.), you guys and gals make me happy just to know that I'm reaching other people. So: THANK YOU!!!
I might have started highlighting people, but for the purposes of what I wanted to say, I think I will do that at another date and hope that you uber special people know who you are. (You! The one that's staring at the screen. Yes you too.)
Love you all!
