As I type this, I have 101 followers. This is just amazing to me. As an MC in the Navy, I constantly teach my students, “producing content is worthless if it’s not reaching anyone.” That’s true, but if you reach someone, that matters. I get a huge sense of satisfaction thinking that 1 person cares.
For the longest time, I kept writing because Ben (my brother) was reading my work. I gained friends, joined a writers’ group, and found myself on the HMS Slush Brain. I have support, and this milestone matters. EVERY milestone matters.
So to celebrate, I’d like to thank a few people.
Quintessential Editor: Corey helped me make this page. He noticed my last blog wasn’t getting any traffic, so he pretty much clapped his hands and wiggled his nose, and I had a website before I knew it. He’s a great man, a brilliant writer and one of the most dedicated friends you can ask for. He helped me get set up on WordPress, and was my first follower.
Rough & Ready Fiction: Jenn is one of my top interactions on the blog. She’s always offering comments, and I truly appreciate it. Also, she likes Supernatural, so she’s got to be cool.
J.R. Handley Blog: He’s another person who’s always offering comments and helpful links. He’s a top contributor and always has some great insight.
Sinister Dark Soul: I love reading the prose on this site. Sometimes I just skim along the
posts and look at the lines that jump out at me. If you have 20 seconds, you’ll read some fascinating musings.
Finally, there’s The Excited Writer. Nichole was my 100th follower if my computer is telling me true. Thank you Nichole! I hope that you keep stopping by and I keep providing you with content that interests you!
Thank you all for reading,
