Holy shitsnacks and crapnuggets, you guys!!
I HAVE BEEN FRESHLY PRESSED!!!
I am surfacing briefly from the orgy of likes, page views, comments, and follows that is currently blowing up on my phone and browser…and let me tell you, this shit is satisfying.
I feel validated beyond any ego-stroking therapy session, so thank you to everyone who stroked my furry walls!
I got The Email on Wednesday and was then left to alternate between manically refreshing WordPress.com and stuffing chocolate in my mouth while pacing my hallway in anticipation for about a day and a half.
As soon as I read the email, I immediately felt this rush of excitement and pure joy…which quickly melted away into intense, crippling anxiety. Holy frick! People are actually going to read the word vomit that I splash onto my very small corner of the internets. I quickly went back to reread the post I had written to ascertain just how humiliated I should plan to be. Did my post contain any typos? Was it funny? Was I going to get any snotty comments? As I read, I remembered that I had written this post all in one sitting while I was still suffering from the tail end of a 3 day long migraine (what possessed me to do that, I have no idea. On second thought, maybe it was the meth). I also realized that I was actually proud of this particular migraine-stupor-induced post. Feeling oddly content and allowing some of the excitement to return, I sat back and awaited the orgy that I woke up to this morning.
Funny, I started this blog not considering myself a writer; I was just a therapist with an anal Freudian complex who wanted to dick around on the internet and see what happened. And now…I guess I’m kinda a writer. And that feels kindof awesome.
So far today, I have gotten more than 4 times the page views I got on my previously best day of blogging, which is also probably 10 times the views I get on an average day…and counting.
I hope I have plenty of lube.
