As some of you might know, I have only had this blog for six months. So, the only way I can reconcile three-thousand people following me, is through the utmost careful use of hoodwinking and bamboozling this world has ever seen. That’s right, I’m a clever magician, that’s why I hired Donald Trump to help with my sleight of hand.
I’m sure I will detail all of my tricks and tomfoolery so that you too can implement them. Maybe I’ll make it into a movie. Who knows, I doubt anyone will want to watch a feature film debased in treachery, deceit and clear drug usage on your part……Wait…..You are?
“Coming soon to a theatre near you…. a blog, like none other, led by a lion who bit off more than he can chew……this May, the movie that is already number one in America (even though it hasn’t come out yet) will….blow…your….mind…..
Fast cars, witchcraft…leprechauns and copious drug usage…from the producers of Inception, the mind of Christopher Nolan….starring Leo DiCaprio….The Nerdy Lion.”
I suppose it would go something like that.
But, I digress….no I don’t.
Seriously guys, I’m not one to highlight any sort of milestone on here and lord knows I still haven’t acknowledged any of my Liebster award nominations (which by this point I have lost count.) Don’t worry I’m cooking up something special for that.
For all of you who decide to read my page and leave me the amazing comments you do, day after day, week after week, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it. Yet, I’m going to try to right now.
Before I started blogging, I had written two manuscripts for novels that I still want to publish. But the truth is, I didn’t believe in my ability to write. All of you, every single, solitary word of positivity has made me feel like I can do this. To me, the most important thing about writing is believing that you can do it. One of my biggest dreams since I was a kid was to be able to reach people. Whether that was in writing, music or some other creative capacity, I just knew that simple fact. And although I haven’t gotten my books published, I know now that I can and will. But in the meantime, I am reaching people with my writing and that’s a great place to start.
Maybe one day I’ll post some short stories as well as my poetry so you guys can actually see the sorts of things I write about. It’s the least I can do. (If you are curious of course.)
The blogging community is a hidden treasure trove on the internet and no matter how much I think social media is an indictment on society, blogging, is not that. Blogging, especially on WP has been one of the greatest things I have ever done and you are a testament to that. You are all such positively wonderful beings of light beaming down on me, that I cannot help but shine back at you.
So here here to all of you. (Raises glass)
This year, I plan on trying to post more than once a week, but it might not happen for a few months because I like to put a lot of effort into each and every post. So, it may never happen.
Now, I’m going to sporadically list off a few of the wonderful people who comment and follow me and if I miss anyone it’s mainly because of laziness, nothing else.
To make this seem way cooler than it is, play some graduation music in your mind while you read these names. Actually, play the Starwars intro, that’s way better.

Since I have your attention, we will be going back to our regularly scheduled blog-casting on Monday approximately……at some point during the day.
Oh, and I was kidding earlier… I’m no clever magician, just a nerdy lion with thick clumsy paws.
