To the readers of this blog… THANK YOU!!!!!!!!
I don’t write so that I can admire my own words. I only write because I see that people are reading, and because they keep coming back. I have my moments of insecurity and doubt, and these occur at what I would consider a fairly normal frequency. I can run the gamut from questioning my writing skills all the way to wondering if this whole thing is really a well-intentioned and meticulously executed conspiracy among my friends and loved ones just to make me feel better (think The Truman Show). But whenever doubt creeps in, all I have to do is reflect upon the sincerity of the comments and correspondence I receive. I can also step back and appreciate the number of visitors that I have each day, from all over the world. I am soon reassured that this blog is legitimate, and that I’m not making a fool of myself.
Having said this, if there are any conspirators out there who want to come clean, now would be a good time!
I particularly enjoy reading and responding to the comments at the bottom of each blog post, and receiving emails (there is a “click here to email me” button on the top right of my blog page). In fact, I encourage more of you to leave your honest feedback in whichever way you are most comfortable. But if you simply enjoy reading but not responding, I understand. I am often that way with the blogs that I follow.
So once again, here is a big THANK YOU to the group of people who motivates me to dictate my musings onto the interwebs every week. Authoring this blog is a big part of why I lead such a contented life as a disabled person.
Reminder: Many folks tell me that they enjoy my blog but have trouble remembering to check it for new posts. I think half of them are lying (and that's okay). For the other half, you might consider the convenience of having each post delivered to your inbox. Simply type your email address into the box on the right hand side of the blog’s home page, just above the “Subscribe” button, and then click the Subscribe button. Almost immediately you will receive a computer-generated email that you need to respond to in order to confirm your subscription. Then just sit back and have the material delivered to you each week. You can always unsubscribe or automatically forward my emails to your junk folder at any time.
