Excuses, A Great Big Thank You, and an Offer
Not only do I have an audience full of wonderful people who actually care about what I have to say - now you guys are two hundred strong! How did this happen? Well, I think it largely has to do with my piece on The New York Times site. That experience was completely surreal and paralyzingly terrifying for the 24 hours before I sent it out. It was worth it though, and now there are all sorts of people calling me a smart teen and insisting I'm cooler than Joel Stein! I will take it. Anyways, I just wanted to say that I'm so grateful for this group that has dealt with my inactive blogging and has allowed me to figure out what my non-fiction writing voice actually is. (Man, I missed ending sentences with prepositions, too. I swear, those are my only enjoyable grammatically incorrect practices.) Y'all are perfection, and your comments and interest has often made my day.
SO, to reward you for being awesome, I wanted to give you something. Since I do not have the money to pay for book shipping, and I don't think anyone would benefit from some kind of youtube video, I have an idea. As a blog reader, I like content. It makes my heart go all warm and fuzzy inside. Soooo, I would like you to tell me about a post you'd like me to write. Whether you want an All About Me post (hah, I doubt it), a review of a particular book, album or movie, my opinion on a certain topic, a recommendation, advice, or several pictures of my cat, I will GIVE IT YOU. Just make sure to comment and let me know. You've gotten me to two hundred and one followers. It's only fair I reward you with some requested content.
Sound good? Do the commenty and I will love you forever. Not that I didn't already. *gives cookies*
