My ego needs stroking.
I know I am building a wonderful readership here on my blog. It has been an amazing journey so far, one that I am excited to continue. It has helped me chronicle my everyday joys and woes, and has helped build discipline in an art I have always loved but buried and kept secret for too long.
But I need your help.
See, I love reading your comments and knowing that you are reading what I have to say (even though, half the time, I have no idea what I’m talking about). It gives me strength and courage and inspiration.
So I guess I am trying to tactfully solicit (read: beg) you for comments. Just letting me know you are there. Because it’s fun to read what you have to say. And while I want to develop an audience for my writing, I also want to make new friendships and connect with old ones.
Plus, it's like the blogging version of tipping. You wouldn't run out on your waitress at Red Robin after she brought you that third extra ranch dressing would you? Or not tip the stripper that..................well, okay, you get my drift.
So let me know you’re out there. And let your friends know I'm out here. Sharing is caring people. You learned it in kindergarten. It's time to put it to good use.
And tell me what you think.
Otherwise, all I hear are crickets.
And since I know you are probably busy, or lazy, or both, and because this is a Full-Service blog, I have compiled some pre-made comments for you! I know! I think of everything!
