Recognition, let’s face it fellow bloggers, we all want it – if we didn’t want it we wouldn’t be writing publicly.
I get ridiculously happy when it is given and pathetically sad when it is denied.
Well, I have asked myself that many times and am not any closer to an answer.
A reply left for one of my posts satisfies me like nothing else can.
It is the validation, I suppose.
It feels like a warm hug and a cup of cocoa all rolled into one.
Obvious cliche’ ?
When there is no recognition it feels like my favorite snuggle blanket is still in the dryer and the dryer is broken.
I would love to be noble.
I would love to say that only the writing itself matters.
I would love to say recognition doesn’t matter one wit.
But, that would be a lie.
And although, as a writer, I have greatly exaggerated at times and ..well..okay, lied a few times, too….my reflective moments must remain pure.
So,would I continue to write without any recognition?
Yes, I have to, it is not a choice-but it would be very lonely indeed without the recognition.
So, fellow bloggers and writers where do you stand?
I would love to hear your thoughts.
