Writing

Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin

I often refer to my blog as the ol’ ball and chain. At the extreme, I equate it to the monster that Dr. Frankenstein lost control of. Gene Wilder’s Dr. Frankenstein that is. If I’m going to be any Frankenstein it’s going to be one with an awesome head of curly hair and pencil mustache. On really bad days, I refer to my blog as an animate object and scream defiant remarks at it.

I whine about my blog because as of lately, she dictates my schedule, has minor control over my emotions and dominates my thoughts. This sounds a little extreme but I made a promise to stick with this blog and I have no intention of backing down. Being an only child with a paternal role model who had over 30 jobs, 35 cars, and lived in 13 different states, it’s often easy for me not to follow through on projects. This is one instance where I haven’t let that happen. I’m committed to my blog and I anticipate a day where a future significant other tells me that I’ve chosen the blog over them.

Since I’ve been highly blog-centric lately, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about where she came from, what she’s grown to and where I want her to be. Recalling each step upward, each opportunity that has come my way has boiled down to one simple fact- this blog would be nowhere if it weren’t for the support of my followers both in Austin and everywhere but Austin. My followers are the reason I decided to stay committed. To write every day. The support I have received has been mind-blowing and inspiring…and for that, I thank you.

The feedback I have received made me believe that maybe, just maybe, I can do something with my writing. You’ve helped a twenty-something come closer to finding her creative path in life.

That’s all I wanted to say today.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
From the bottom of my heart.

As I venture forth in the redesign of my blog, I hope to make this platform a more efficient way to say thank you and to continue a conversation with you.

    @Jessica- Thanks Jessica! You've been so supportive! It means a lot. Writing every day is tough. I don't always like what I write every day, but I try to stick with it.

    I'm curious…you mention that you are driven to stick with it because you don't want to flit from flower to flower, not completing anything. But, how can a blog ever be completed? It's the thing that wouldn't die, right? Why does it consume you so much?

    I read your blog pretty regularly, BTW, so yes, keep going ๐Ÿ™‚

    You know, i would have to say, yours is one of the few blogs i read knowing that I'm going to read something good. I don't expect pretty pictures of dresses or cats or backyards…but i totally expect to be entertained – and sorry for the pressure, but you haven't let me down yet!

    You know girl, you really do inspire those of us with lifestyle blogs (don't you just hate that description) to keep on writing what interests us, and not pigeonhole ourselves.
