Between having to prepare for a presentation and trying meet some work deadlines, I didn’t have a chance to get a post ready for your reading pleasure. I figured I would take this opportunity to say thanks to all of you. It’s only been a couple of weeks, but I still owe you many thanks!
Although I knew for years what I wanted to do with my life, wanting to become a writer was news to most people close to me. I was surprised by the amount of support and encouragement I received after making the announcement. I guess I shouldn’t have been since I have a lot of good friends. I was even more surprised to find out some of my friends had similar dreams. Again thanks to everyone who has been following site, strangers and friends alike. The few people who got on my case for not having something posted by noon the other day, I was a little scared for my life, but it still made me smile. To the people I met through this site who have also been encouraging, I thank you as well.
I’ll end this with a few comments I got after telling a few people about the site:
“Good stuff with the website, I’m proud of you son. Keep after your dream… but you need background pictures of me on the site.”
“My bad influence on you has pushed you in the right direction.”
“When you’re rich, all I want in return for helping you market this is a pool with a picture of my face.”
“Who is this guy impersonating you? Before reading the posts, if someone told me you had a side like this, I would have smacked them. I like it a lot.”
“I like that site you sent me. The writer is funny, who is he? Wait, that’s you! No way!”
Almost forgot. Special thanks to Steve Aldeus. I wasn’t going to start this site until August, but after a quick talk with him, I had this up and running 2 days later. I’ve yet to use it, but thanks for the custom banner as well. Another special thanks to my biggest fan, you’re appreciated.
