One day, I’m poking along, writing posts, hearing from no one except Coco and Painted Maypole, who are such staunch supporters that the sky might be falling before they fail to leave a comment. The next day, I write a post about small blogs, ask for responses, and I hear from SEVENTY-TWO people.
OK, then. Thank you. I appreciate the response. I want other small bloggers to be able to find yesterday’s post reassuring. My point was – and if you read the comments yesterday, I think you’ll find it holds water – that the “big” bloggers are only big because other bloggers read them. If you have a small blog, live it, love it. There are people out there reading you who don’t read the big blogs but do read you. That means that there is someone out there right now who reads you regularly but has never once read Dooce. Howdya like them apples?
Now back to our regularly scheduled readership of twelve and a half people.
As, I am sure, will Painted Maypole and Coco.
