Hey! I have been critiqued!!!

Go and check out what Billy Mac had to say about me in his critique here

Now, granted, I asked him to do it, because that is how it works.......but I would hope to God he was at least being honest with his comments. He actually critiques both of my blogs there.

I admit freely that I write this blog so that others will read it. I am a firm believer in the fact that is why most of us write. To know you have touched someone else by something you have written is amazing. Whether it be to make them laugh, think, cry, reflect, even angry........it is all about the human need to be noticed and recognized for your unique qualities.

I am not a writer. I has aspired to be one at times, but I always fear that any novel I might write would read like a really really bad Harlequin romance...... My creativity is not exactly stellar, but when I write these short little articles, the observations of my weird and wild little life......and one of you says, "Hey, you could be writing about me" Or, "You made me laugh so hard" Or, "I never thought of it that way before".......I get .........well.......let's just say I get more than just a little tingly!!!!

So, I beg of you......feed this comment whore's addiction and leave me comments when you visit....even if all you have to say is, "Hey, I was here".....

Who the hell is Billy Mac and what does it matter whether he likes your blog or not?

I'm critical of critics.

I hear ya. I always feel a little let down when I see the big fat zero next to the comment section of my most recent post. The worst part is I'm totally guilty of the same thing - I'm a serial blog lurker.

Hallooo - I was HERE! He didn't say anything bad, did he? I didn't READ anything bad, anyway.

And we are all comment whores, -k. Otherwise we wouldn't allow comments on our blogs. Also, I think there is something narcissistic about blogging. But not in a bad way... ;-)

I was here! I read your articles and now I'm commenting :D

I find your blog interesting and yes, it did make me smile.

I'll be back!

You know I'm a fan! I get here (or the other one... usually both) whenever I can and leave comments whenever I feel inspired to say something. ;o)

So, "Becky wuz here"... there, I've inscribed it for all eternity.

You are BRAVE! I would be WAY too chicken to ask someone to review my stoopid blog.

Congratulations, Iris! I was critiqued too a couple of months ago - it's fun!
