I get emails all the time (and I love them). My peeps who noticed I’ve been distant (thanks the writing bug) and those who are new and either want a friend or want blogging advice. All emails are welcome in fact they’re encouraged.
However sometimes I get weird ones.
You all know I love to promote some awesome people on this here blog. Elana Johnson, Lisa & Laura Roecker, Candyland, Rose Cooper… Umm I think you get the point. Some published others aren’t but the joy is in the smiles I put on their faces and the smiles they put on mine.
Most people send emails telling me how sweet they think I am (and secretly I want to ship off several dozens of cupcakes in thanks). Just the other day I got the opposite email.
What’s in it for you?
It was a valid question. I suppose it could have been viewed as several different ways but it had me wondering how I’d answer it. So I figured I might as well share it here!
Here’s the answer: I blog what I want. Much like I write what I want to read.
I choose all the fabulous people on my blog very carefully. I have been known to say no. It isn’t because I don’t like someone it’s because it takes a lot of time to prepare a post and sometimes I’m too busy. However every time I have someone on my blog it’s because I love them and want to support then just like I hope one day everyone will want to support me when I’m looking to do some shameless promotion. If they don’t that’s okay too. I do it because I want to. It’s that simple.
How do you feel about sharing the love of bloggers and authors you adore?
