People that know me in real life know how humble I am. Like super humble. Probably the most humble person you have ever met. In fact, if there was a humble competition there is about a 99% chance I would win by a very large margin. If I was prehistoric I would be a humblesaurus.
I started writing this blog in September because I needed some kind of creative outlet that freed me from the restraints of 140 characters or how ever many lines you get in a Facebook status update. I looked down at my statomatic thing today and saw that this blog has 507 followers. In a word, I am humbled.
I can call it a creative outlet all I want but in the end I want someone to read it. To relate or to laugh or to be entertained in some small way. This has been a lot of fun the past few months and I hope that I don’t run out of things to say any time soon. Thank you for reading, commenting, following, and sharing.

I’m guessing you’re a humble guy, right Simon?

Simple, yet makes a great point!

Just found you through Acuff’s “Shameless Saturday”. I’ll be back…(Love the sweet for 1/24–hope you scored big points)

Thanks for stopping by and yes, I just may have rolled a marriage Yahtzee today.

I served up that last line for you by the way…
I am firmly in the camp that believes that great content will eventually bring the people in. Sometimes, you just need an initial push to get your name out there.

Impressive sir! I think we all want people to read our stuff, no matter how much we claim it’s just for us. I have enjoyed reading your pieces and look forward to more. Any suggestions for building a following? I’ve been at my blog for a little over a year and have enjoyed the comments and likes I get from my readers, but would love to be able to share my writing with more folks. Just wondering how you grew yours so fast…(that’s what she said). Sorry, that was too easy.

“that was too easy” that’s what she said. Thanks Jim, I appreciate the kind words. To be honest I think that this was more dumb luck than anything else. I think that original creative content is important as well as reading other blogs out there.
