When I wrote “Signs I’m Starting To Become An Adult,” I never expected it to attract any attention. I thought some of my friends might read it, and that was a big might. I expected 50 hits, tops. Imagine my surprise when I checked my dashboard at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday and saw more than 1,000. I think it got around 4,000 by the end of the day. Then there were the comments. I got, literally, hundreds of comments, which were 99.9% positive/insightful.
It’s nice to get such encouraging feedback. Actually, it’s nice to get any feedback. The fact that 1,000 or so words can elicit such a reaction is amazing. It’s also reassuring to know that other people are going through (or have gone through) the same thing.
I guess what I’m trying to say is: thank you. Thank you for reading. Thank you for commenting. Thanking you for linking. Thank you for writing. Just plain, thank you.
Also, in the next couple of days I’m going to post something about an unlikely writing tool/influence. I don’t want to say anymore than that, but stay tuned.
Until then, please enjoy this mashup of two of my favorite pop culture icons:
