B-PUB'D

THANK YOU!
Thank you very much…
Today I’d like give a big warm thank you to…
drum roll here
BLOGGER!
Yes, a big hugs ‘n’ kisses thank you to Blogger...
Because they've published me!
Yeah, I’m sure you think I’m teasing…
But I’m not…
You see, whenever I post on my blog…
Or leave a comment on someone else’s blog…
Blogger offers me the option—to ‘publish’.
WOOT! WOOT!
Oh, I know it’s not the same as really being pub’d…
But still it gives me a giggle to hit ‘publish’ everyday.
And now when people ask, “Are you published?”
I’ll just smile and let them think I am.
I only hope they never ask…
If they can buy my book.
But wait! Hold the pixels!
Blogger does offer a way to publish blog posts.
Have you seen it?
Yup, all your posts can be compiled…
Into book form.
So?
Would you ever make a book of your blog posts?
Because think about it…
You put lots of time and creativity into your posts…
Will you let them exist only in the vast Internet?
Hmm? Will I do it?
Naw.
I can wait for the real publishing deal.
But in the meantime…
I’ll just take the daily cheap thrills from Blogger.

Always, Em-Musing

Never thought of it that way, thanks.

I forget sometimes how monumental that little publish button is. We put it out there for the masses to read. And it's out there!

You know, I think it's all perception. This post reminds me that when I look at a dollar bill, it's only worth anything because people "believe" that it is. But really...all it is is paper with ink on it with a "promise" that it's worth something.

That's the only difference between blogger publishing and traditional Big Six publishing. It's an "idea". People "believe" that one is better than the other, so for the time being, it is.

It's a curious world that we live in where many things in our lives depend on a certain point-of-view.

Thrills are thrills. We should enjoy them all.
