I must be doing something right

I saw my picture on the "watched blog list" for the first time today. (saw it twice, actually.) It was a good feeling.

Then later today I logged back in and saw I've made a tenative appearance on the most popular male blogs list.

That is really cool.

I've always said I'm not here to be popular, and that's the truth. I'd be writing whether anyone read me or not.

But at the same time, it's nice to know I'm appreciated and accepted. If I said being on the list doesn't mean anything to me, I'd be a liar.

But I've been doing the easy part. I've just plopped out my thoughts and stories and poems. You folks are the ones who read and comment. You're the ones who put me on the list, and I want you to know I really appreciate every single one of you, both the people who post and the people who choose only to read.

You're all awesome, and you make me so glad that I took a few minutes on July 18th to check out Blogland. I worried that I would have no place here, nothing in common with anyone... Not only did I have a place, you folks have set me up with a house right on the beach!

Thanks to everyone. I'll keep writing, and I hope you'll keep reading!

Always Affectionately Yours,
Five-Speed

onelittlesecret, I've read through your entire blog today, and it is awesome. I haven't posted any comments yet simply because you gave me A LOT to think about, and I'm still mulling it over. Before the weekend is out, I'll probably comment on every post you've put down so far. It's great!

I'm still new at this too, but for what my newbie opinion is worth, I think you're doing all the right things. You're writing wonderful blog posts and commenting in other blogs. You have diverse and interesting graphics posted with your entries. Those are the best ways i know of in Blogland to get and keep some one's attention.

You deserve to be on the most watched list. You're a wonderful writer.

Thank you Ana. Speaking of writing, I know I owe you an email reply or two. I'd have sent them out by now, but I've been avoiding my email lately because it been mostly bad news across the board all week. I'll send you something this weekend to catch us up.

Figured you were punishing me for not following through on my end of the deal. No problem. I understand completely. I have emails in my inbox too that I haven't answered. Writing is such a drain on my brain lately. I hate feeling this way. *Blech*
