I am pretty well rendered speechless. Honestly. That look of love you see right up there? From me to you.
39 comments on my last post and it's not even a giveaway?!
I'll be honest, fair readers. I was afraid that people had come to this awesome blog because of my $50 giveaway, and left when it was over. Forever........
I've been losing subscribers faster than gaining in the last couple of weeks and I have this bad habit of noticing the stats on other blogs. And of course comparing.
But I learned a very valuable lesson from this. Wanna know what it was? huh? Doya?
Okay, okay, I'll tell you. I already knew it didn't matter. In my head I knew. I was basically throwing a little pity party for really no reason at all. Actually, I'll be honest, I was looking for validation. I am the kind of person who likes validation. (of course, who isn't really?)
Anyway, (why do I ramble so successfully?) what I learned is that it isn't the comments that matter. It's knowing that I matter to somebody that matters. And yes, I know, I have 5 somebody's right here at home that I matter a lot to. And they are so easy to love, and they love me so easily. But I've come to realize that I don't really blog for me. Maybe I should, but I don't, not really. Yeah, free stuff, reviews, giveaways, etc. are fun but why I really blog is because I want to reach out to at least one person (and hopefully more) and make them feel a little better about themselves and life. (even if it is just by comparing themselves to my nerdy self).
So as long as one person reads this. And as long as one person gets something from it. I'll keep writing.
Although I'll admit, I do still love comments!
P.S. On Monday we are going to Cali to see my brother Jay's big art show for his Master's Degree and we are staying for the week. Very excited!!! I will still have a giveaway next week but if you don't hear from me much that's why! I'll let you know how it goes when I get back. (or while I'm there if I can sneak on his computer. Boy I need a laptop!)
P.S.S Michele, did you see the picture of my future star up there? Just as long as he doesn't choose American Idol! ;)
