Not every blogger starts out with the goal of becoming Dooce, yet I somehow think that’s the general perception of folks outside the blogging community. We’re not all out to climb our way to the top of the bloggy pyramid; it’s a good thing too – the top of the blog pyramid is pretty damn small.
Finding your niche and building your blog empire takes a level commitment I may never be able to adequately muster. The proper care and feeding of blogs is nothing less than a way of life.
Blogging is not always about reaching the most people; it’s about reaching the best people.
But who are the best people? The best people are those who get you. Those who take something away from your site. Those who feel genuine joy as you celebrate your triumphs and offer compassion rather than judgment when you reveal your personal struggles.
Readers like you prove the mommy wars are for those who just don’t get it. Virtual friendships do exist and you are each a testament to that.
To those of you reading this post: Thank you, thank you, thank you for being the best people I know. Frankly, I’m just excited to be here.
