Fourth Grade Nothing Fan Mail Rocks!

Fan mail is grand. 
Today two awesome things happened. One Brice Beckham from Mr. Belvedere followed me on Twitter (okay so I maybe asked him to) and I received one of the most amazing fan emails ever! Yeah, can you believe that? Someone out there thinks I'm cool. 

I won't lie, I average about one fan email per month. If you're a fellow blogger, I'm sure you get way more than that ... So don't think I'm all up here bragging about it. It's just the best feeling in the world. I felt like I had to share that with you guys.

We bloggers who don't focus on giveaways, don't receive coupons and freebies as perks. We bloggers who don't have 5000000 followers, don't score ad dollars. We bloggers who aren't crafty enough to make and sell cute things on Etsy or eBay, can't use our blogs to generate sales. We're the bloggers who really just blog because we love to write. We blog because we love to reach out to people in some way and I guess today was a reminder of that.

Someone out there thanked me. Someone out there felt the way I felt as a kid. Someone remembered what it was like keeping a journal or diary. She could relate to that feeling you got as a kid, crushin' on a celeb and wishing they'd just write you back. She remembered what it was like wishing that cute boy in school would ask you to a movie or pass you a note, heck how about just a hello?

I want to take a minute to thank everyone for stopping by and for giving me a reason to keep going. I love you guys. For reals.

Awww, this was so great. I'm a new follower and I really like what I've seen so far! said...

Ally, that is really exciting. You think the rest of us get fan emails? Well, maybe everyone else does but I never have. I'm not saying that as a sour grapes kind of sentiment. I'm saying you shouldn't minimize the love you get from strangers! That's the greatest reward and you deserve it!

It's a wonderful feeling when you feel like someone can relate! (at least I think it would be... I'm not saying I know that firsthand)

That is so cool Ally! You've put a lot of work into this and you deserve the attention.
