My Literary Quest turned one year old this month and looking back at the past year, what an amazing journey it has been. In the beginning I had no real concept of what I was getting into. At that time, blogging meant posting interesting tidbits of knowledge from time to time for readers who would, in time, flock to the site in droves. It was the time part I vastly underestimated. It turns out that these things take time and persistence, thankfully I have both.
In June I had a fantastic lucky break when Freshly Pressed featured my post “The Evil Adverb.” I should have been thrilled when it happened; but to be honest, I was terrified. Without any warning there were not hundreds but thousands of people reading what I had written. Many were kind enough to agree with me. A handful were helpful enough to point out every single flaw as well, giving me my first taste of what being critiqued en masse feels like.
I am blessed to have a wonderful bunch of regular readers. Knowing someone out there appreciates what I do makes it all worth while. I try my best to visit the blogs of everyone who leaves a comment, so don’t forget to drop a line when you stop by.
Here’s to another great year, I hope to fill the pages of this blog with posts that will amaze, inspire, humor, and amuse. Keep tuned, the best is yet to come!
