I’ve done a lot of catch up reading here over the last week or so and was feeling a bit inferior / sorry for myself when I scribbled this… I’m over it now… Kind of 😉🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply You’re welcome.

Cheers! LikeLiked by 4 people Reply Isn’t that always the way? You come up with a novel idea only to find someone with more talent got there first? 😉😂 Thank you for your kind words though. Some days I find it tougher than others to believe I deserve a place here, but I’ll get over it one day… Hopefully 😉🖤 LikeLike Reply If everyone wrote the same, then no one would ever be creative.

LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Was it that obvious? 😜 No, I was feeling a little bit sorry for myself as I was catching up with everyone’s work here at the weekend. Sometimes I’m just in awe of the talent out there 👍🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply No, it was not! I was in a wicked state of mind! 😂 I get what you are saying!

I absolutely love your work, and the way you can convey something through just a few words is just perfection.😊 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thank you my friend. You’re very kind.

Made my day to be called ‘pithy’ too – I love that word!! 😁👍🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply You are welcome! 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply 🖤🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply You have a pretty specific style, so the skill is working within those limits, and you keep churning them out. I’m sure if I tried to do it, I’d not be able to keep going this long! There’s definitely a niche for short stuff. So many times I just need short but thought-provoking/evocative things, because it’s too hard to read longer things at the time. And it’s like coming home coming to your blog— because you know what you’re gunna get! And it’s gunna be high value per word lol. And for you this is just how your thoughts naturally come out. You can’t do better than that 😄. Also another aspect to it is— your blog is a place for discussion! There’s a lot more to it than just the posts 😄. People come for you, for the banter, the wisdom, the relatability :). I’ve had exactly the same thoughts as you a lot of times lol. I think it’s natural for self-critical people, and that’s a good thing for writers to be :D. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Another thing is I sometimes doubt the evidence of the numbers of followers. But I do keep realising that it genuinely is hard to gain a lot of followers, if you’re getting them it’s not for nothing! And I don’t mean that’s the goal, but it’s a reassuring thing! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I wouldn’t worry too much about the numbers… A healthy dose of my followers are spambots I’m sure. It just makes the smaller amount of real people who enjoy, appreciate and engage even more meaningful 🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Oh yeah I don’t :). I just meant having a large number is a good reassurance. And for me 100 was a lot, lol LikeLiked by 1 person Reply 100 is a lot for anyone!! 👍👍🖤🖤 LikeLike Reply For once, maybe, I’m stuck for words on how to respond to this. I can’t describe how it feels to to have even one person appreciate what I write. This blog has been, and continues to be, so therapeutic in so many ways and you have played a big part of that Robin. So thank you so much once again. 🖤🖤🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Stuck for words, incredible! I feel proud 😄. I’m so glad your blog has been so therapeutic! I can only say the same about mine and your role in it too! 😄. I’m so glad if I’ve helped in some way through the hilarious banter 😁. Time well spent! Thank you to you too! And I so know what you mean about having people appreciate what you write :), that never gets old. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Haha you should be proud! It takes a lot to shut me up! 😂🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply 😁😁😁 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Aye ah should be prood of mesel!!
