You do seem to make it cool to be a blogger.
I don"t know if it"s a good thing or not but since you mentioned my blog on the air yesterday it"s been affirmation central around here.
You see most of the general public doesn"t always get what I"m on about when I say I Blog.
“You blob?”? they respond, then add, “Well if you got more exercise you"d feel better about yourself.”?
And so I"ve resorted to telling aging family members or the people in church that I write stories, on the computer.
Sometimes they roll their eyes, sometimes they go read it to see if I"m telling secrets about them. But mostly they just smile and nod their heads and proceed to tell me about how they enjoy the Internet because they can find out what the weather is, really quickly.
Then came yesterday, and you mentioned randallfriesen.com on the air. They were driving in their cars or having coffee around the table, but they heard you say blog, randallfriesen.com, and good, in the same sentence, and suddenly all was well with the world wide web.
The excited calls and emails started to come in shortly after. Some of them were in the tone of “I don"t know what all this blobbing is about, but if Gormley says its ok, then its ok by me.”?»? You"ve been able to do in a moment what I"ve been trying to do for five years.
So thanks for the plug, and thanks for making my life easier.
My mother"s never been prouder.
