My husband and I were talking the other night and for some reason I was talking about my blog (something I rarely do).
He was asking some questions about it and asked how many people followed my blog.
I told him.
“Why do people follow your blog?” he asked.
I responded with the above quote, “I don’t know why anyone would follow my blog.”
So, I lied a little I guess. Most of you are here because of BSF. That’s how most of you found me.
I told my husband I guess they like what I have to say and I’m a good writer (not sure about that but it fell out of mouth like most stuff does).
I know I have offended many people. Some of you have gotten mad at me. Some of you probably would like to smack me at times (which I don’t blame you. I probably need a good smack or two) and ask, “What is wrong with you?” (I ask this too).
I recently offended one lady who copied portions of my About page. She emailed me back, offended by my offensiveness and explained her reasoning. I duly apologized.
You see, I think people are out to get me in general. So far, I’ve had 3 scrapers of which I know of and this irks me. I now know how Stephenie Meyer must have felt when Midnight Sun was stolen and published without her approval. It is a violation and for writers it’s usually personal. I know it is for me. It’s a creative endeavor that I at least am fiercely protective of.
For those of you who don’t know, Midnight Sun is an unfinished work of Stephenie Meyers (the author of the Twilight Series) which got posted on the internet illegally when one of her rough drafts fell into the wrong hands.
The lady who copied my About page was probably an admirer (which you can tell from this post I have a hard time believing why anyone would admire me). I should have acted out of love, but I didn’t. I failed God’s test. What else is new? you ask.
Luckily, the lady was nice about my insecurities although she probably harbors some ill-will against me. I don’t blame her. I can be quite caustic at times, especially when it comes to sensitive subjects. You should see me when it comes to my kids.
I do thank you all who for whatever reason you do follow this blog. I pray for you all–that God is moving in your life and blessing you beyond reason. I thank you when you take the time to advise me or add your 2 cents to the questions or encourage someone else who shares their heart here. I know your time is valuable and I appreciate every second you share with insignificant me.
And I pray many, many others appreciate you as well.
