True Confessions of a Not-So-Famous Blogger
If someone could look at my blog dashboard, they'd see several blog posts sitting in the draft mode, waiting for some TLC before I hit publish. (Oh, disclaimer - my closet is filled with unfinished knitting projects, and a few book outlines are stored in there, too, somewhere...) It's not that these works won't ever get finished, it is that they aren't quite ready to be revealed to the world.
Oh sure, some day I hope that one of my blog posts goes viral. Is my wish any different from an artist hoping for a large crowd at a gallery opening, the place filled with smiles and laughter while photographers run around to capture the moment with the dazzling guests, each raising a cocktail in a toast to the host?
Well, my soul-searching ended with the alarm clock ringing at 6:30 a.m. this morning. I got up, had my coffee and digested the fact that I am just an average blogger. I am not massively successful with thousands of readers re-posting every profound word that I write. I can embrace and accept my "Starving Artist Blogger" status. After all, it's only my creative genius that's getting in the way of my virtual success. :-)
