Happy Birthday To Me!
This week I received a very nice phone call from Phoenix singer-songwriter Forrest Smith. You may recall my post about him back in December -- if not you may want to go back and check it out. He complimented the interview I did with him and told me it was among the three best stories that had been done on him in his entire career. That made me feel really good. We writers like to get feedback on what we do and here on the blogs it sometimes seems that it is never enough. In fact over my vacation during Christmas holidays, I caught up with several friends and family members who had been following my blogs and told me to my face how much they enjoyed them. Thanks to all of you who provide me with that encouragement as it really helps keep me going.
I am going to continue my BLOG BOGGLED series on Mondays. I have been getting a good response and there is still more to say. I've been noticing other blogs doing the same topic and I will continue to link to those when I find them.
I had so much fun with my Costco story on Tuesday and those who read it seemed to enjoy it. I like writing humor but I don't know that it's my forte. I'll try to be funny as much as I can--- in fact I may get downright silly if I can. Don't know about this coming Tuesday. I'll be reviewing, or at least commenting on something. I just have to figure out what it will be.
The Wednesday story about my library seemed to go over pretty well with readers. This coming Wednesday, if things go as planned, I am going to go into my back yard and see if you can help me answer a question and tell you some other parts of my story.
Thursday has always been debate day and will continue to be so. And Fridays are a mystery and perhaps I will continue exploring the mysterious world of dreams. Oh, and I forgot to mention Sunday--I'll be delving into the Bible as usual.
What has been the most uplifting thing you've heard about your blog? Do your friends and family keep up with your writings and how much support do you get from them? Do you ever think about just giving it up? Or have you just started and we ain't heard nothin' yet?
