Over here you can write whatever you want to. The only trouble getting somebody that will read it. – April 18, 1933 Will Rogers
Sometimes we in the U.S. forget just how good we have it. As Will says over here we can write whatever we want. That is definitely not the case in many parts of the world today. Yes, FaceBook and such have made putting your words out there easier but they can still cause some bodily harm. Let’s never forget that we have it so well here.
But to us authors, I am including all us bloggers in that category, just getting the words out there is only half the battle. Getting people to read them is the other half. That brings to mind the old quote:
if a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it did it make a sound?
I humbly say that I am blogging for my own benefit but my vanity makes me check on the blog stats on a regular basis. It is nice to know that some think my writing is worthy enough to spend their time reading them!!
The above quote about the tree reminds me of one I found on a T-shirt on Mackinac Island a few years ago. I wear it occasionally just to pull my wife’s chain
If a man says something and there is no woman around to hear it is he still wrong?
Thanks to all of you out there who find my words worthy enough for your valuable time…..
