A Whole Lot of Thanking Going On: The Reader Appreciation Award

In my best Elvis voice, I’d say there is a whole lot of thanking going on. And for good reason, without an audience blogging would lose a big part of its appeal. I love to write, but truth is I crave to be read. So to my readers, thank you. Thank you very much.

If you write a post in the forest and nobody reads it, is it really a post? Okay, I took it too far. I’m absolutely thrilled that Wanton Creation nominated me for the Reader Appreciation Award. If you haven’t read Wanton Creation, you are probably in that terus nullius where posts don’t make sounds.


Per the rules of the award, I must nominate at least six of my fellow bloggers and, per another interpretation of the award, I must mention what I have been up to lately. Nominating a few fellow bloggers is easy. I confess: I am, in a big way, driven by your visits, shares, likes, and most of all your thoughtful comments and replies. You validate the voice I strive to find, and I thank you. I thank you very much. With that, I am grateful to pass this award onto you and, at the same time, recommend friends of eD pay your blogs a visit:

I just realized I used my Elvis voice throughout this post, and lemme tell you – it stinks! As a brief update, I have just returned from a business trip to Australia and Singapore. I am so happy to be back home with my wife for the Jubilee weekend. As a side note, I’ve been watching one of my childhood dreams inch towards reality, as the Los Angeles Kings are just two wins away from winning Lord Stanley’s Cup. Lastly, I’m through four chapters of my second re-write, and my first novel is slowly nearing completion. And, with that, I’d say this blogger is a happy man. Off to watch the flotilla…

  1. Congratulations on the award! Good luck with the novel, I’m sure you will let us know when it is ready 🙂

  2. Here’s another one for you! Happy Monday! You have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by simplecityliving.wordpress.com! Check it out here: http://simplecityliving.wordpress.com/2012/06/04/versatile-blogger-award/

  3. Hahaha, I laughed at the post in the forest line. Very good!
    Great to hear your writing is coming along well! Wish I could say the same with some of my writing projects hahaha 😛

  4. Thanks for the nomination! I am currently going through my final content revision on my novel, and it is work, not nearly as much fun as dreaming it up. I’ll actually be writing a bit about that part of the process in the near future.

    As for the Kings, I have been a lifelong hockey fan (Red Wings). Last year I looked carefully at LA and told everyone they would win the cup this season. Great team, I am enjoying their rise to excellence. Good luck!

  5. Thank you for the nomination! Also, I’m glad the progress on your novel is… well… progressing. Best of luck with it! 🙂

  6. Good luck to the Kings, and congrats on your progress with your novel. One chapter at a time and before you know it, it will be finished! Looking forward to reading it. (Oh, and thanks!)
