It’s Official, I Like Me

Circumstances over the past few days have dictated that I go through a lot of old blog posts.  Looking through my old posts I would laugh or feel the emotion that I felt when I wrote them.  I realize that I like my sense of humor.  I make me laugh.  I am not sure I have a writing style, but if I do, I like it. 

Going through the comments, I have seen that sometimes my attempt at humor misses with others, but there are a lot of people out there that completely get me.  It is strange to see the people in the blogosphere that have come and gone and others that were in it for the long haul.  I have come and gone myself. 

I don’t think I have ever really considered myself a good writer.  Looking back, I am amazed by the grammatical errors that got through, but I am also impressed by some of the things that I have written.  There is a lot of fluff or silly things that I have written, but every once in a while I write something that surprises me.

So, this is a love note to me.  Keep writing me.

My earlier posts were random and I've learned to focus better. Still don't think I wwrite anything genius, but hey! People keep reading.
And I'll have to check out your other blog. What all do you guys write about?

Okay, it's definitely Friday - I already follow your other site!

@Aubrie, thanks! I learned in a composition class that the only way to read your own work is through the lens of time. I think the teacher was referring to this as a means to edit, but it works as a means to appreciate as well.

oh, I just love when love is in the air :PPP

I also remember my beginnings when I was like extremely happy when I had 50 visitors a day wondering who are those crazy 50 people reading my nonsense :) and now I have from 800 to 1800 visitors every day - I guess the whole world is crazy :)

Dez-I usually have a pretty good relationship with myself. We have only broken up a few times, but once for several years.
