I'm feeling fortunate, blessed, and very grateful right now, because over the last few days my poetry has been showered with a great deal of attention and appreciation. I'm not even quite sure where all the extra readers are coming from, but I've been hit by a blast of traffic ranging from Greece and Germany to New Zealand and Guam, as well as all over the United States. It was a sudden surge of a couple hundred new viewers, and I'm grateful for every eye that hits this page, please know that!
It's not just silent hits on the counter that I'm looking at... I'm seeing comments from readers on digg and StumbleUpon, and I've actually got 15 diggs on the last poem I posted, and 26 on another. Maybe to many bloggers that's not much, but to me it's big--because it's the acknowledgment that I'm headed in the right direction.
I can't see how many of you are subscribing via RSS, but I've recently been turned on to that not-so-new technology myself... if you're following my blog I'd really love to read yours too, so either comment this post or email me at email@example.com with your blog links so I can check you out too. The love goes both ways, so if you're spending time here, let me spend some time on your site too! ☺
I've got to get back to my rapidly-cooling latte and finish up tonight's work, so ciao for now... but thank you from the bottom of my heart for finding meaning in my words and giving me the quiet push that I need to continue on this path. You are truly appreciated, and you've given me a burst of sunlight in an otherwise typical night. THANK YOU!!!
