I’m obviously quite humbled and blessed and a little red-faced at all the love being thrown my way. So sweet! Thank you! I’ve gotten so many comments and emails that are just making me tear up, that are encouraging me to keep on and it’s just so darn nice.
I’ve been thinking a lot about the whole blogger vs writers dilemma that almost drove me to close up shop. But I want to say, to be clear (and I think you realized this!) that I’m not down on bloggers at all. In fact, I love those blogs with the beautiful pictures and pretty jewelry and nice link-ups and days devoted to certain themes. Long-time readers know this to be true because on no less than three occasions (probably more like five or six) have I tried to do such a thing, only to forget the very next week. So please don’t think I’m trying to elevate one style over the other.
But oh my goodness the relief at knowing who I am in the blogosphere! Just admitting out loud that as much as I’d like to be a website like that, I just can’t. And now I feel so free to just sit here and create a nice little aqueduct for my words to flow from Point A (my brain) to Point B (out of my brain).
So that’s that. Thanks again. I am so SO tempted to answer each and every comment and email, which I might. Because that’s honestly how much they all mean to me. It’s really something to hear how me just living my life (and writing my way out of the crazy) encourages and entertains but mostly reminds you that you aren’t alone and that you are not nuts. You’re okay. You’re going to be okay.
And there I go, talking to myself again…
