But I was so overwhelmed by the response to my inaugural post, that I just had to write this short thank you to all of my readers, both old and new.
Naturally, I hoped most of my readers would follow me from Cordelia Calls It Quits. Of course, I expected readers from the United States. And, since I live just a few miles from the Canadian border, I suppose I should have expected a few Canadian readers, as well.
But – readers in countries on other continents and across oceans? Oh, my.
What’s next – readers from other planets? (Actually, judging from some of the comments I received and rejected, I may actually have some readers from other planets – but let’s not go there ….)
I know I’m somewhat technologically naïve, but I simply didn’t grasp the geographical reach of the internet. Heck, the only country outside the U.S. I’ve ever visited is Canada, and again, I’m only about a 20-minute drive from that international border. (So close, in fact, we sometimes forget that it’s a different country!)
NOW, PLEASE ALLOW ME TO TAKE THE PODIUM.
I would like to thank my director, my producer, and the Academy …
(OH, WAIT – that’s a different speech! Silly me.)
Let me start over:
To ALL of my readers (including family members, who have to read me) – thank you for making me feel so special, thank you for making me feel talented, thank you for showing me the light.
… I just hope I can keep up the momentum ….
Please, God, give me new ideas every week (or at least every other week), and please don’t let my computer break ….
I love to hear from my readers – contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
