I want to shout it from the rooftop, climb on a mountaintop baby, scream and shout!

I LOVE THIS BLOG SO MUCH!  I want to shout it from the rooftops.  And yes, it does come up in conversations.  But I also don’t want to shove it down anyone’s throat, make it feel like I’m trying to sell something, or hog the conversation.

But the thing is, when it DOES come up, it’s helping me network, help my friends and neighbors with job opportunities, gets me in touch with other musicians and writers, improving my relationships, share what is important to me, learn more about photography/graphics, and overall is making me very VERY happy.

Thunderbolt of blasphemy?  You bet.

Some people say that being a role model is a curse…

but I think it’s a blessing.

I ain’t perfect, but I am conscious of those who may look up to me.

And again, no money directly from this blog yet (but indirectly yes!), so it’s highly possible that I am grossly over-estimating any influence I may or may not have.   Oh, and this post just wouldn’t be complete without a little Taylor:

Is it weird that I sometimes smile when I read my own blog?

Joanna Brooks (half) smiles at her own stuff!

And yes, I’ve read it.  Mixed feelings.  Will blog about it soon eventually.

GO WRITE YOUR OWN!

I do love my readers, but don’t just be readers, be livers too.  Like someone who lives, not like liver and onions or the organ that secretes bile…

To my dear followers….

I’m sorry that I’m flooding your inbox.  I know you get an email every time I post, and at this point, I am writing between 15-30 new posts per day.  I think it will slow down eventually, but if you continue to follow me (and please do!!!), know that there will always be notifications.  🙂

I’ll drink to that (my glass is empty so fill it up with something…non-alcoholic please!) AND make a toast to my readers!  Thank you so, so, SO much.  And believe it or not, I still have lots to write about.  Live your own lives and tell your own experiences, of course, but still mosey on over when you can, okay?

Oh, and I copied Rihanna’s look once upon a time, remember?

P.S.  All those numbers add up to just over 5,000.  I promise.  And no, I didn’t add them myself.  And no I didn’t keep clicking my stats button waiting to get to that magic landmark.  🙂
