Thank you, whoever reads this blog, lurkers and commenters, Mom and IRL friends and OL friends.
People have said to me, so many many times, "I could never blog! I wouldn't like…
…or the time it takes."
Silly, I don't blog because I like pressure (is there any?) or exposure (is there much when you're little?), or because I have "extra time" (is there such a thing?).
I selfishly blog. I'd blog even if a soul never visited. That's how it began, after all.
I blog when I'm okay.
When I'm not okay, I'm not blogging.
I hope to fix that. I want to be more transparent, more vulnerable, more raw when I'm not okay. Instead, I tend to become quiet.
I've been quiet.
You encourage me with every visit, and you inspire me when I visit your site or read your comment.
I learn so much from you.
Enough sappy stuff. The bottom line is this: Hey, thanks for being there!
p.s. I'm closing comments on this post because …well, it just fits to do that.
