Dear Regular, Faithful, Loving Blog Readers,
Pssst…it’s Kathy here.
We’re experience a slight tremor here in Lake Superior Spirit blog land. It’s not a major earthquake, but the ground is shaking.
You want to know what’s happening?
Do you remember that crazy blog about being a blogging channel that I wrote last weekend? You recall it, don’t you? You haven’t forgotten already, have you?
I sat down at the computer without a thought in my mind and suddenly wrote a wild & crazy blog called “Don’t sign your blogging contract when you’re sleeping.”
Well guess what happened?
WordPress just sent a love note announcing that it was on Freshly Pressed, the front page of this wonderful blogging site. (Today it’s the best blogging site on the planet. They must not have read that disgruntled day when I wrote Freshly Pressed-less. Must have been PMS, except, forget that, those days are long over.)
Just wanted to share with you Regular, Faithful, Loving Blog Readers so that we can celebrate together! Because without your readership and commenting and presence, you wouldn’t have inspired me to write blogs like these and become Temporarily (oh-so-temporarily!) famous.
I am determined to handle this Maturely this time. The last time I went wild & crazy and called my parents in Florida, my daughter in NYC and son in San Diego. Plus announced to Barry every five seconds, “231 hits! 345 hits! 432 hits!” until he was ready to throttle said blogger.
This time I’m going to be mature. You know: What comes up, must go down. All’s well that ends well. I’m maturely focusing on this quote: Life becomes precious and more special to us when we look for the little everyday miracles and get excited about the privileges of simply being human. –Tim Hansel. **Thank you very kindly, Tim, for keeping things in perspective. The EVERYDAY miracles are what count. Let us all keep that in mind.
These other miracles are temporary, a flash in the pan, nothing to get flushed cheeks and wildly beating hearts about. (Note: Mom, I am sorry about ending sentences with prepositions, truly. It’s just that sometimes they seem to fit.)
I am determined to be mature, even though obsessively checking blog hits, because, well, you all know I can sometimes be slightly obsessed. GUESS WHAT, faithful friends and family!! Over 1,010 people have paused at this blog in the last couple of hours (make that 1,016! Oh LORD ALMIGHTY—1,075!)
Gosh, I was determined not to blog today.
But then someone gave the Blogging Channel an award, and how could I not share it with you guys?
Please share some of the excitement–I so credit all of you for inspiring me to blog day after day after day after day after day…
(1,165 hits! How am I to sleep tonight? Ohmygoodness!)
Although one blog commenter just snipped, ” A blog about blogging. How original.” Phew. Thank goodness someone is keeping me in check. May his blog be Freshly Pressed one of these days…and may he choose an original topic…such as…visiting Nicaragua?
