I have to admit, the title for this article “A Thank You to My Followers” sounds a bit, “how shall I say”, narcissistic. While writing it I immediately got a mental picture of me standing atop a grand balcony, my arms stretched out in an “English Queen” wave.
I’m looking down on the millions of my followers crowded into a courtyard just to be as near to me as possible. Somewhere in the distance the soft sounds of “Don’t Cry for me Argentina” are floating in on a soft spring breeze.
Too far, you say?
Yes, I do have a vivid imagination, however, I hope that made you laugh. I enjoy making people laugh because when they’re laughing, they don’t have time to think about harming their fellow man/woman.
My actual intent for this article is to thank all of the people who have taken time out of their hectic, busy life, just to read one of my articles. And if that weren’t enough, those who have found my content so engaging that they felt it necessary to join the conversation, I thank you.
You see, I’ve been a professional writer for over 10 years now. Even though I do this for a living, I am still humbled when I see people appreciating my work on my site.
Even though it’s my job to draw in as much traffic as I can for my clients’ site. I’m still humbled when people come to my site and “Like” an article here and there, and join a conversation because I presented my writing in a way that engaged them.
These are the people I want to offer a very sincere and humble, thank you.
I give the example of people taking time out of their busy day because I know what “Busy” means.
I’ve raised four children and tried desperately to hone my skills, so I could put food on the table. I’ve made mad dashes across town so the two of my children competing in a sport in those opposite destinations could say “Dad came and watched me play … “
At many stages of my life if I turned on a computer it was to work. I rarely, if ever, have time to read a site that has to do with one of my (non-existent) hobbies. So, I do understand “Busy” and that’s why I appreciate it when I see how my content, educates people, entertains people, makes people happy, makes them sad, but most of all makes people think.
Taking all of that into consideration, I am truly blessed. So thank you, my friends, my brothers and sisters, my readers, I do appreciate you taking the time to read my humble blog.
