We've all thought it, read about it, posted about it, tweeted about it: the WORK.
The WORK that blogging is.
You work on your own posts, you guest post, you visit, you comment, you read, you engage, you interact, you SPEND HOURS.
WHY WHY WHY.
We're not getting paid. We're not getting book deals. We're not getting any more buff or richer from the hours sitting behind this computer.
People ask us, "So...you do, this, this... airquotes blogging for free?"
Yup. I do.
Because there are some things that are worth it all. All of the time, hours, preparation.
Today, I received over 50 emails wishing me well with the May 8 Listen To Your Mother Show that I am honored to be a part of.
And I received these......
So, do I do this airquotes blogging for free?
The answer depends on what you hold dear.
Thank you, to all of you, for your wonderful, amazing tweets, emails, and well wishes.
I do believe I am the luckiest blogger in the world.
I love you all!
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
*Thank you, Kpugs, I don't know what to say...you've left me deeply touched. Thank you for your love.
