There are some weeks when I wonder if it’s even worth blogging anymore. I think all bloggers go through periods like this, and it’s bound to occur to those of us who post original content on at least 260 days a year. We do so because it’s our passion, and don’t want to let our readers down.
Fortunately, there are days and weeks when it you get rewarded for your dedication. There is no better feeling than getting a shot out from another blogger, or hearing your blog being discussed on the radio. This past Sunday I was shocked when WHO’s Insiders opened up with a call out to Krusty Konservative. So while I hit rewind on the TIVO, I also emailed Dave Price a quick thank you. Check it out here.
Tonight when in put on my fuzzy slippers and cuddled up to the old laptop and pulled up the old stat counter, the traffic was through the roof. Now sure, I’m proud of what I write. I try to uphold a Jim Rome standard of posting, have a take and don’t suck. But nothing is better than seeing your stat counter put up a big number. For that, I owe Ben Smith over at the Politico a thank you.
So for all you blogger out there, and those who are thinking about adding your voice to the conversation, I urge you to do it. It’s not going to make you wealthy, and it takes a lot of time, but you can make a difference. Jump on in, the water in fine.
