I haven’t been down this road in a while. I recently read a blog by a blogger I have really come to admire. His name is Matt Walsh and I’m going to link to him. I’m doing this because I believe we should all support each other in this crazy world of blogging. Also, he’s a fellow Catholic and is right on (in my book) in his take on just about everything. I use his posts frequently in class and my teenage students really like him as well.
So why the complaining? I’ll just throw it out there. He represents where I thought I might be at this point in my writing. For the most part I’m pretty happy just writing for myself and my kids and then knowing that I have a handful of very loyal readers each day. But I’ll admit it, there’s that part of me that wanted to get paid for this. I think I’m good enough. I know sometimes it’s forced because I overdo it and try the whole “posting every day” thing. That’s OK. I need to force myself to write as often as possible. It keeps me sharp and helps me get things out there that I wouldn’t otherwise (like that post about the painkillers a few days ago).
Anyway, there’s nothing that can be done about it except for you all to share my blog with ALL of your friends. If nothing else, a few more people will get to come into my world and that’s just fine with me.
Hey, maybe Walsh will see that and leave a comment.
