Remember kids, behind my incredibly manly and imposing exterior, is just a semi-regular human being with a love for Mexican food and a tendency to say ridiculous things.
So when I wake up, check my email, and read a heartfelt note from someone contacting me to thank me for writing something that made a difference in their life, I’m not ashamed to say it brought a tear to my eye.
So thank you.
It may seem odd to be grateful for someone else’s gratitude, but that’s also why I know it’s genuine.
Now let’s get back to kicking ass.
I have a reputation as a badass to uphold and Batman still gets more press. ;)
I just want to take a moment to thank all of you who have shown me so much support over the days, weeks, months, and *gasp* years.
Your comments are always appreciated and are a nice way for me to connect with you — even if it’s only digitally. It may not seem like much to you, but it means a lot to me.
Your likes, too, are always appreciated, because it’s a nice way to acknowledge my posts and it allows me to see who my words (or art or photos) are connecting with. It’s always a pleasure to see your names listed. Thank you.
And thanks, too, for the shares.
Sharing my posts or telling your family or friends about something I’ve said (or done or created) is always incredibly helpful in spreading my message or making people laugh. And it also helps to draw other awesome people here.
So again, thank you.
Again, these things may not seem like much to you — and it may seem odd that I’m even making a big deal about them — but they mean a lot to me.
Not the numbers, the connection we have.
I also want to add that I don’t ever want anyone here to feel like they’re just a number or that I’m ignoring them.
So please, if I ever make you feel that way, let me know. It is never my intention. I just don’t always see every single comment on my page because FB doesn’t always provide notifications (but I always try to find these things and keep up).
And if you ever want to have a private conversation on the side about something going on in your life, or something I’ve written about, please message me.
I cannot say I have all the answers, but I will certainly give you a listening ear.
Thanks again for adding tremendous value to my online experience.
