It hasn’t taken very long to get addicted to blogging.
In my very first post, Getting Started, which was written a whopping three weeks ago, I mentioned that I was really just curious to see if people would want to read the things that I want to write. Turns out that they do! You do! Which is fabulous, by the way.
Less than two weeks after my first post, the WordPress staff bestowed the honor of being Freshly Press upon me for Engagement Conundrum: Picking a New Last Name. I was so excited I even took a screenshot:
The FP was great. It made me excited to write and it put me in touch with most of you lovely people. I’m extremely appreciative of the feedback and very gratified by the interest.
But, now I’m both spoiled and confused. I can’t stop checking my stats, I have several posts in my queue that I’m nervous to publish in case they aren’t as interesting as my others, and I feel like I can’t stray too far from the gay theme because I know that that’s what drew you to me in the first place.
I’m not complaining. Writing in this forum really has been great for me, and the FP was quite an honor. I just think that it may have happened too soon. I received publicity before I figured out what I wanted my blog to be, before I had cache of things for people to read. Three weeks ago, I was by myself, dancing in front of a mirror. Now, I’m performing in a recital, without any dance lessons.
I hereby throw myself on the mercy of my readers! Answer a question for me? If this works well, I’ll continue to crowd-source from time to time, because polls are fun.
Thank you for your help!
