The other day, I sent my mom copies of some of my most recent blog posts. She called me on the phone and said a bit wistfully, "You're such a talented writer. It's a shame that no one gets to read what you do. It just seems like a lot of time and effort for something no one sees."
Ummmm....really, Mom? I know she doesn't get the internet or blogging. I know it.....but really? I think she imagines that the only people stopping by are relatives, my poor friends who feel some sort of obligation, and that creepy guy from college.
Can you do me a favor and say hi? Something simple like "Hi, Mom! I'm reading from (your town here) " Then I'll print it out and mail it to her and she can see that it's more than the 5 sad people she's imagining.
***Wow! Y'all are great! I'm completely overwhelmed by the number of wonderful comments. Thank you for the nice things you've said about me (in front of my mom!) but most of all for reading what I have to say. Thank you.
