Let’s begin by saying I don’t want more readers. I know that is a very disturbing attitude for a blogger to have. I’m sorry I have it, but hey, what can you do?
I have readers and I like talking on here with the feeling that I’m actually talking to someone, but every day when I publish my stuff WordPress automatically asks me if I’d like more readers and every day, sometimes multiple times I shake my head no.
I could sell my act, but then I’d have to have an act and this way I just talk about what I feel like talking about and if it attracts the attention of others I consider it a plus, if it doesn’t then I think so what?!
I’ve said before that I think I have hypergraphia. I think I absolutely have to write what I think. I even go so far as to hum along with my sentences to make sure they are what I want to say. If you were to happen on me doing my writing you might hear me humming along while I type. It isn’t something I’m proud of- I think it’s kind of weird but it’s my thing.
I’m just thinking that I’m like a dung beetle only I’m collecting newsy detritus. I’m folding it all up into a big ball and I’m shoving it along. Nobody can know why…it’s a mystery.
Do dung beetles care if they are being watched as they create their balls of waste? I think not!
Do I want more readers? Who the hell cares?!
