publication and gratitude




lissa said...

congrats! I think digital and print will always mix but I always like print because I can hold it in hand, I don't think digital can replace that

Justin said...

Congratulations. That is very cool.

As for your mention of not being able to count readers, it's weird how we've become so accustomed to that with blog stats and whatnot. I wonder what it was like to be a writer before the internet days. I'm sure novelists and such could see sales reports but what about people writing short pieces for publications like you just did? I wonder.

Thanks Justin- and Lissa!
The funny thing is that this is journaling, and the rest is really serendipitous (people leaving comments, and the occasional publication). If I think about an audience, it will stifle the spirit of journaling.

Great news! I like that the internet turns the concept of an audience into a conversation, but print publication also allows for some quiet reflection on the part of the reader. Good to know your words are available in both forms.

Congratulations! I am so happy for you and am so proud to know you via your blog! I am not at all surprised that they chose to publish part of your blog, I think it is absolutely brilliant! Keep up the wonderful journaling of your thoughts and sharing them wherever you can!
