On May 13, 2011 I wrote the first entry in this blog of mine.
Since then I have posted 123 posts.
There have been a total of 230 comments.
I have 73 followers.
And – as of today – I have just reached the 5000 hit mark.
I want to thank all of my blog-followers. I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to make a comment. I want to thank everyone who bought my e-books – for a writer without readers is like a sailor without stars to steer by.
If it wasn’t so darned late – (I just got in from a long shift at work) – I would write something truly entertaining – but instead all I can offer is my honest gratitude.
Let me just jot down one cool writerly quote to give you folks a little inspiration to make up for all the inspiration that you – in turn – have given me.
“The writer must entertain – or else his manuscripts will molder upon the shelf – written but unsung. He should shed at least a ray of light on human experience – on the human condition. These are his moralities – entertainment and illumination – enforced by the high resolve to write his very best.” – A.B. Guthrie Jr. (author of THE BIG SKY)
yours in storytelling,
Congratulations.Quite a milestone. Here’s to the next 5000 ! Like the quote and it’s quite true. We need to entertain or why write?
Indeed. We must entertain our readers and we must entertain ourselves.
Doesn’t your 5000th visitor deserve a prize, Steve? Actually, I do believe it was me… 😉
