a shameless attempt to gain approval -

- or at least an encouraging pat on the back......a little lower.......lower still.....

For those of you paying attention, I sincerely thank you. Part 2 of The Magic Word will be up tomorrow.

I am throwing myself at the mercy of all the veteran blogger's and the more experienced visitors. Being new to this, I have a few questions....

I have done a bit of research, (translated - I've read many of your blogs) and discovered that there are many bloggers who, like myself, have little or no responses posted. Nonetheless, should my feelings be hurt by this?

I'm sure establishing a following takes time, even for the most creative blogger. Is it too soon for me to throw in the towel, admit defeat, call the game - due to lack of interest? (I'm actually being overdramatic, here) I realize my personal time here and the few posts I've written are certainly not enough to out-right give up (or are they?). I'm basically trying to find out.....when is it time to take a hint?????

Does sparking interest usually take a certain average amount of time or does a fairly creative and talented blogger instantly attract visitors and responses?

I would like to solicit your advice, criticism, suggestions and general comments concerning what I have posted thus far.

In other words....HOW AM I DOIN'?

I ask only this...if you, basically, say that I suck, my blog sucks....whatever, please also let me know what it would take, if anything, to change your opinion.

Thanks to all of you! This has become my #2 form of relaxation/stress release/therapy!

Sincerely but verrrry thirstily!!!,

Write what you feel, say what's on your mind, put out there what's inside. It's your blog. You make it whatever you want. Does it matter if someone else thinks it's a great blog? The only person it should matter to is you! So, keep using this blog for whatever you may need! And then ask yourself: "How Am I Doin'?"

Keep writing!

Hey I like your style very fresh and informative. Don't feel bad about not having comments, I am also fairly new to the game and also have been curious as to why I don't have much "attention" but it comes with the game, the more you play, the better you get so to speak. BTW I can't wait for part too.

Check out my blog if you like, except I'm not as entertaining as you are

Keep up the good work! Don't fret! And by your own advice, RELAX hehehehehe....

Thank you so much for the encouragement! Ultimately, you're right. It shouldn't matter what anyone else thinks about it...truth be told, I just love having a place to post my thoughts. The bonus being others reading them and taking something from it. Y'all are just darlin!

Yagotta...I think the "key" is reading other blogs that interest you and posting. Soon those people, or other people posting to the same blog, begin checking yours out and "voila!" Regardless, keep blogging!

P.S. The tease on the "Magic Word" was done well. Mean, but done well (smile).

I think you have the best blog out there, but that's probably because I really relate to it. I've been wondering why some of the more popular blogs get so many reads and comments..I don't find anything interesting about most of them.

Anyway, don't give up.

I'm feeling quite valid now! I'm thrilled that stories from my life are entertaining to others.....might actually indicate that I've led an interesting life. That or I just see humor, irony or absurdity in the dullest of situations.....either way, thanks y'all....this is just plain fun!
