Go ahead. Click play. BUT... before you do, know this:
THIS is how I feel after the blood, sweat, and tears of "building my social platform."
Okay, so I'm a bit melodramatic. Exagerative. Perhaps even a bit ridiculous. But those of you who have clicked that one little blue button that says "Join this site" and "followed" my blog, you are those warriors that scream along with me like raving lunatics. You know it's true. You know how hard it is to get a blog going. You know how much time it takes to build it up. You know the painful glory of even the smallest glimpse of success in a writing world full of so much rejection, blood and carnage. Too dramatic again? Sorry.
I also like this clip because it is my sole victory cry. Me and my awesome writing friend Peggy kind of started this blogging adventure together a few months ago. We have been eachother's cheerleader and co-conspirator of sorts. We both hit 100 followers yesterday, and we talked about celebrating together, but didn't know how since she lives in Utah, and I live in
Now, some of you hot shots out there with 5,000 followers must be laughing you arses--that's how William Wallace pronounces it--right off. I know what you're saying: "This chick thinks the battle is over at 100 followers? She thinks she can throw her sword in the ground, throw her little Scottish hair-braid to the side, and walk off into the horizon to have a Guiness? What a novice!" Dont worry. I'm not that stupid. (Plus, I don't drink Guiness--just Diet Coke, and you can bet your arse that I had one). I'm just grateful the learning curve is over, I have a base of good friends, and I have something to be proud of. That's all. Believe me, I know how much more work there is to do. But I am happy to do it, because I have come to find out that blogging is not just a way to "build a social platform" but also to have a positive voice in the world.
So come on...(cue dramatic music)...Yeahhhhhhhhhhh!
