|Happy Blogaversary to me!|
Now, I don't blog as much as I once did and I apologize for that. I blame another medium for distracting me from my writing... my radio show.
If you have not heard the Talk 2 Q Radio Show, then you're missing out. It airs twice per week and if you miss the live airing, then there are over 225 episodes for you to enjoy in the archives section. The show basically gives me the avenue that I need to cover multiple topics and get instant feedback from my fans who call into the show. Once you get a taste of that type of high, then it's hard to put out blog posts every three days and hope that someone comments.
In the blog world, a lot of bloggers only comment on your page if you comment on theirs. With my mom and wife both struggling and ultimately succumbing to cancer last year, I didn't have time to read a lot of blogs. I saw my pageviews decrease dramatically over the last six months of 2012. Was it because I wasn't reading other blogs?
I'll never know. But, one thing that I do know: people love my radio show. I'm so proud of that fact. I've interviewed actors/actresses, musicians, authors, professional therapists and of course, other bloggers. We discuss everything from relationships, politics, sex, sports, current events, race relations and more. It's truly enjoyable and I enjoy the fact that I've now established enough of a reputation that people reach out to me regularly to be on my show.
But, I do hope to get back in the swing of things in blogging. That includes reading the blogs of others. I still read Jewels, Idaho, Tsaritsa, Vinny, Squatlo, LogAllot, Lawfrog and Mooner regularly. I may not always comment, but I still read them. Those are the people who inspired me and / or collaborated with me, so I'll always follow them. And most of them have been with me since the early beginnings of Thank, Q and just about all of them have participated on my radio show. You probably could too if you'd just simply ask. :)
Anyhoo, I want to thank everyone who has visited my blog and I will leave you with a gift on my blog's birthday:
Three of my favorite blog posts - "Boonies Aren't For Me (Part I)," "Tippin' Isn't A City in China," and "Real Housewives of Panama City Beach"
Three of my favorite radio shows - "Let's Talk About Sex, Part X", "Meet the Cast of 'The Unwritten Rules'" and "Born Heartless"
