If so, I think I may have just gotten a “whiff” this week of future blogging greatness.
A young man from Texas first popped up as a commenter on my post about editing a few days ago. He said he was brand new to blogging and was looking for help. He totally charmed me when he ended the short list of questions he was asking with, “3) Will you read my blog? (asked in a pathetic, begging-like voice.)”
His claim to “neediness” and his willingness to admit it in a way that made me laugh, brought out all my grandmotherly, and lover of clever humor, instincts.
So, I went to his blog and left him the longest comment know to man, giving him advice on everything from how to get new readers to limiting his sugar intake and always wearing clean underwear, in case he’s in an accident.
Thus began me reading his blog and commenting on his always funny, always original and witty posts. And, him commenting regularly on my blog, again always with clever words.
I suggest you go over here and see if you don’t agree with me. And, while you’re there, it would be great if you’d leave him a comment. I remember how much I appreciated the comments on my first posts.
If he sticks with this blogging thing and gives an audience time to find him, I think there may come a time when those of us who read him when he first started may be proud to say, “I “knew” (read) him when!”
