If you look toward the bottom of the column at the right, you'll see how many blog hits I have. That number means that in the last three months, you all have collectively visited my blog over 10,000 times.
Holy blog hits, Batman! That's INSANE.
Now let me clarify for you people who are new to the blogging world... there are blogs out there that get that many blog hits in a day. I'm sure there are some that get that many in an hour. But I'm not talking about their blogs... I'm talking about my new little pipsqueak blog where I talk about my dog and my wacky family and my random thoughts. Insane.
And I know what I'm about to say might sound ridiculous to you. I might be about to tell you all what a dork I am. And you all might want to tell me to get a grip.
But whatever... sounding ridiculous has never stopped me before.
This silly little blog has seriously changed the fabric of my day-to-day life. A blog. Not a lightening bolt of inspiration or meeting the love of my life or holding a newborn baby. No... my life has been changed by a blog.
But really, since I don't leave my house the whole love-of-my-life or newborn-baby-thing isn't logically going to happen. And as much as I enjoy being creative there are no great lightening bolts of inspiration raining down.
What I do have is a flutter of excitement when I get up in the morning. And mornings in my life in all other ways prove generally to be kind of sucky. I know, not a profound word to describe it but the description fits. But now when I open my eyes and my body hurts and I have to make myself get my feet on the floor, I'm thinking about whether or not someone has left a comment and wondering what I'll write about tomorrow.
And I know I'm supposed to be all cool and existential and not really care that you all are reading because it's supposed to be about being creative and such. And I did start this to write and be creative again.
But I care. I do. I admit it. I'm not cool and existential because, while I thought it would be all about the writing... it's really all about connecting. And connecting with all of you has made it a little more fun to open my eyes in the morning.
So I guess what I'm saying is... thanks for being the Robin to my Batman, people.
