She's so vain, she probably thinks this blog is about her

This blog is now ten days old, and it is becoming abundantly clear that no matter how hard I try, I will never be urbane and erudite like my blogging hero Terry Teachout. But hey, it's been fun, and I'm willing to stick with it if you are.

I'm surprised that so many of you have somehow found your way to this obscure little pocket of the internet, and I'm delighted that you've been coming back. Thanks for giving me a chance. And by the way, can anyone tell me exactly how big a drove is? I'm eager to know how many daily visitors I must have before I can brag, "They're coming in droves!" Would a hundred visitors constitute a drove, do you think?

Although my e-mail address is not posted on this site, people have been ferreting it out (by visiting my Blogger profile or my website via the links on this page) and contacting me to say they like the blog. I'm flattered, of course, and deeply grateful that so many of you are taking the time to drop me encouraging notes. But I'd love it even more if you'd stroke my ego in public, which is to say, right here on the blog, where everyone can read your kudos. So leave a comment, why dontcha? Otherwise, people will think my sister is the only person reading this stuff.

I just found the site but felt compelled to comment after your heartfelt plea.

Here's proof someone other than your sister is reading!

Ok goal for the day stroke Brenda's ego. ok that I can do. ;)
Brenda, have I ever mentioned how much I loved your book? (actually I think I emailed you about it when I read it) I also love coming to read your blog! I have it bookmarked!
And for the record people, I am in no way related to Brenda! :)
LOL How was that Brenda? would you like me to do this on a daily basis? ;)

Brenda Coulter said...

Thank you, Krista.

Heather, babe, you forgot to mention that I'm not paying you, either. But thanks for the warm fuzzies.

Sharon said...

LOL well, I stroked your ego a bit in my blog, does that count?

Brenda Coulter said...

Yes, Sharon, it counts. Thanks a bunch.

okay...I admit it...I am the Anonymous Sister.

I am very proud of my sister, and if you have not yet read her first (hopefully, of many) book, you certainly should do so ASAP. She is truly talented and a gifted writer. Nah, she doesn't pay me for this....I just like to be really nice to her. (yes, it is exquisite payback Bren!)

Buy her book, send her money...maybe she will take me on a vacation!

Since I know you will read this... L Y M !

Please excuse me. I'm afraid I'm blushing too hard to comment on my sister's post.
