I think my blog is working . . . I got feedback today!
My daughter called me at work. "Mom, I'm reading your blog right now, and ewww."
It takes me a split second. "Are you referring to the last entry?"
"I am, and my friend has it open on his computer too. How could you? You're a . . . you're my mother!"
"Well, I used the word 'racy' to make the writing sound exciting. Maybe the passage I wrote wasn't exactly racy. More like integral to the plot. Don't forget, I have to make this blog interesting. I'm building a fan base."
"I don't know if you're qualified to talk about such things."
"You mean . . . ?"
"Yeah, s . . .e . . .x. It makes me wonder just what is going on inside your head."
"Uh, I wonder sometimes too, but trust me, I know a bit about this subject."
"Eww! Double eww!"
I think I'm onto something. A few more weeks of creative spin and this puppy could go viral.
