Other than the flu last winter, I have yet to go viral. (sadly, Lindsay's court appearances have instead. Hey, maybe if she was my blog... No, too many guys would be hanging around waiting to do my blog when it got drunk. So that won't work.) My goal was to build a huge following, a base from which to launch a humor book I'd recently finished called "What if God's Cheating on Us?" (If you think about it, it would explain a lot. A lot.)
But I kept writing anyway, for the fun of it. I'm glad I did. I cyber-met a number of cool people and talented writers whom I encourage everyone to check out; they're in the 'gotta read' section on the sidebar.
Though I honestly appreciate them all, there are two that deserve special mention. I looked back to the first comments I ever received, and it was Fred and Tessa bringing encouragement and positivity to this then fledgling effort. Thank you guys, you're good people and a good couple and it showed from the start. I want to thank everyone who took the time to write something back. I appreciate it, all writers do.
Also encouraging was the trickle of foreign countries that began dropping in. After the US, it was Taiwan and Norway oddly enough in that first week or so. I started keeping track, and one year later (after Mongolia and Cambodia finally show up) the number has grown to 98 and counting.
I didn't have time to blog much in the last seven weeks and I won't again for at least for the next month or two. Rebuilding and refurbishing our floodhouse demands attention now and writing and drawing takes time I just can't afford. On the other hand I don't want to abandon this space or my core readership either. (One should always try to strengthen one's core. Richard Simmons said that, ergo you know it's true)
So I thought why not just drop the book in here, a few pages at a time. Maybe it won't be terrible and maybe I'll get a few helpful comments and suggestions from you guys. What do you think? (insert encouragement & positivity below)
