I sought fame and recognition, now I only seek

For a while there, I was blogging so that I could be on the most read. My ego demanded a place amongst the celebrity of our whole blog world. I would write things for recognition; I would reach out for ego strokes.

Lately, my blogs have been of a more personal nature; they have been about my inner humanity and struggles within. My visits are down but the recognition I am receiving from my loyal visitors is amazing and beautiful. It's good to know that these people come back time and again. They comment, share their wisdom and show care and compassion.

To all of you who choose to visit, I thank you. I also thank all of the people who've come to share humor, sadness, compassion, wisdom and all of the other gifts. You make me feel... If we were all in a room, I'd give each of you a hug full of warmth and tenderness. I'd also give you sexy ladies a little more personal show of affection....

I think thats what a blog should be...about our own inner struggles and victories. If somehow you end up on that front page...then great. But waggypolly says...we are all on the most active watched blogs....just not all on the front page. Blog on!

Like ive said, you blog about what you want to. We all have things we like to express, vent about, or just have fun with. Its all about doing what you feel you should do. And always enjoy reading what you have to say dude.

I am a Attention whore.

I am an Attention whore.

I am not a English major.

Blogging is good therapy. I have been high on the front page. I fell off due to not enough time to nurture and cultivate my blog. My friends still visit all the time and I make a few more along the way. Its all good.

I am not dead yet

These blogs and what we share sure does evolve and each is unique as the blog author. I love coming here and reading your thoughts, feelings and experiences and feel enriched because of it. I always feel honored when being touched by another. Thank you for touching me this way.

hey art I was following the thing on the side of our my blog where it says if you like this blog you'll like these and you were there as I am on yours, its strange that you mention this, I just came up on the top of the list and now my name is on the main blog page, I felt a little anxietal about it becasue someone said to me now you gotta stay on it and that meant I 'd have to compete. I just write what I am feeling not so much of an interactive blogger where you use different people on your blog in stories and such but I want this, MY blog to be a good part of my life not my whole life so I said later for that person and just did what i usually do and thats have fun with it and I have a readership too that I see just about everyday and its a good feeling so you keep doing your thing for you and that shines through much more than because of some list, take care and cyaroun the blogs

roaming the cyber streets of blogland

I write for fame...or at least I used to. I've found that I'm better off if I just write things that make me happy and laugh. The writing really comes from the heart (as demented as mine is) when you just write for yourself...and if your post only genterates a couple of comments...then just let it go. It becomes much too competitive when you try to make it more. keep writing. I dig your style.
