Ever since I was a kid, I have loved a great church choir. You know the kind I mean. They shout and stomp and clap and sing and rock out the house. Every single singer brings something to the party. They bring their passion, and their belief and their energy.
That’s how I feel about all of you. The people who read this blog. The people who take the time to turn the monologue into a conversation. The commenters. I told you when I hit 1,000 comments that "the comments are the interaction. The comments are the conversation. The comments are why I blog."
Last week, we crossed the threshold to 2,000 comments. Together. Roberta Rosenberg, the Copywriting Maven left the fateful 2,000th thought and as is now my tradition, I have invited her to write a guest post which will be coming shortly.
My blog will be 10 months old in another week or so. I’ve made lots of mistakes. I’ve done a few things I’m pretty proud of. But nothing means more to me than the fact that you keep coming back. And talking back.
Thank you to all commenters, including the following:
