Vintage Thirty reached a milestone on Friday. It was her first day with over a hundred visitors! This was so unexpected that I started trying to figure out where I'd been linked to garner such attention. But I'm still left scratching my head. Now I know there are some of you out there right now going, "Ahahaha...ahh yes. I remember my first 100 visit day. Isn't Tootsie cute? She's excited." And those same "you" would wonder if half of the world had fallen into a ditch if you'd only received 100 visits. You'd be all, "How did I not hear of this half of the world falling into a ditch thing? When? Where? What happened? I hope it didn't happen during rush hour because then it could have been much worse!" and you'd be frantically tuning in to CNN for an update from Wolf Blitzer [and just what the crap kind of name is that anyway? It sounds like Santa's reindeer that no one talks about; you know, like the 5th Beatle].
I LOVE to write. I've written screenplays and entered them in competitions. They didn't win but they did advance. I've written children's stories and started a novel. I've also written other blogs and journals. But until I get optioned or published. Hell, until I get PAID, writing is just a hobby. So I blog. And it's really helped me make with the words. I do most of my blog writing in the afternoon or at night and save it to post the following morning. Why? Well, first of all I like to put up something fresh for you very special peeps first thing in the morning. If you've taken the time out of your busy schedule to come over here and read what I have to say then I like to accommodate. I'm like the New York Times that way [I also sometimes sit on a story]. And also? I'm not that creative before I've had at least 2 cups of coffee and really all that does is get me through not killing part or all of my family before I deliver some kids to school. I'm considering therapy so stop looking at me like that. Yes you too. Another thing I do is check in on some of my favorite blogs late at night before I hit the sheets just to see if anything has been updated. You know what I often find? That one of you will have an entry with a similar theme to that of which I was planning on posting in the dawn hours [this excludes any memes]. So there I am in a bit of a pickle. Do I go ahead and post as planned? Or do I save it for a rainy day? And just so I don't leave you reeling from curiosity, I'll tell ya: I've done both. I find it fascinating that there is much we have in common. I know most of us are parents to human children and it's not such a stretch of the imagination to believe that we experience similar situations at nearly precisely the same moment, but it is interesting nonetheless. And I want to say THANK YOU! Thank you for visiting and making me feel special!
