Thumbs up on Feedback! 2013

Image  The image is an experiment conducted in November, using the ‘paint’ program on this laptop.  I had not tried it before.  I do not feel it went well.

Today, I wish to thank those who have posted a comment or given the thumbs up or even thumbs down to any posts.  Like all the other writers – I can’t do it without readers.  I mean, I can but when I do it is like the one about a tree falling in the forest that no one hears.  OK, I admit that my personal diaries are intended to be private, but I do a lot of writing that is absolutely meant to be interactive in that real readers are needed and wanted. 

Remember that you are welcome to check out other posts of the same blog and let me know what you think.  At the moment, there was one day in February 2012 that ‘got the most hits’ but I don’t even understand why that day went so well.  I suspect I bid online for writing contracts and mentioned the blog or included a photo of someone more famous or the headline was awesome or something like that. 

Back in Saxon Utopia, so to speak, two people just went by on horseback as dusk is happening early here today in the village.

Is that just you? Have I been read or heard? Have you? 2013

So many people nowadays post information online at various locations.  I read something somewhere about people giggling over comments they have written or posted.  I think another lady wrote it. 

Mainly, what I’m getting at is that in my own case I think some of that stems  from the confusion about whether or not I’ve been read.  Until or unless people send me feedback, determining whether or not anyone has read something I have written is almost as challenging as a form of divination.  Was just that I thought about something that I wrote, or was it that one person read it and gave it a little bit of thought, or tens or even hundreds of people read it and all gave it a moment of thought? 

Being a writer by trade, much as I strove to have a day job in a different field – I tried to become a woman working as a philosophy teacher at a university somewhere, and even tried convenient store management as another alternative…as a writer getting read and having people willingly buy stuff I wrote and reading it and really really liking it ….Liking it the way people love a good read or a great movie…is the other half of the reality of writing…Reading.

Have you ever read me?  At the moment, there are an unspecified number of people who have, but do not know it was me, because there is no byline – ghostwritten.  Do I look like a ghost to you?  There is also a little bit of work I have actually authored: wouldn’t that be nice?  To have what I have authored bought, and sold and me getting paid and readers loving it and liking it and some people even respecting me or even some fans.

I encourage, or even implore you to check out the following links:  http://sbpra.com/MiriamPia/   is for a novel.  About that philosophy teacher thing:  http://www.amazon.com/Five-Big-Questions-Life-Answer/dp/1617208647/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1381520676&sr=1-1&keywords=Five+Big+Questions+in+Life  How about a practical mini course at your own leisure?

Response to a comment as a post 2013

I drop a comment whenever I appreciate a article
on a site or if I have something to add to the conversation.

Usually it’s a result of the passion displayed in the post I browsed. And on this article Five Big Questions in Life | Miriamspia’s Blog.
I was actually moved enough to drop a comment ;) I do have a few questions for you
if it’s allright. Could it be only me or does it look like like some of the comments look like left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on other online social sites, I would like to keep up with you. Would you make a list every one of your community pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

Hm, I like this show of interest.  No one has asked me for more information this way before and so I am not sure how to deal with it.  I find it a little scary but, being easily frightened hope the fear is mainly paranoic – from watching too many movies where there are monsters in the closets etc..
