Kudos to you the reader

First I want to thank a very special friend. He told me a few months ago when I began writing articles. “Rose you have to quit saying that you don't see yourself as a columnist because you are one". So to my very special friend you know who you are, I thank you.

Article writing is something very new to me, so when I’m submitting my work to Ezines and webmasters or bloggers are using that free content for their website it really helps me as a writer to boost and develop more self confidence. Starting something new can often make one feel un-confident. Maybe for many writing content and submitting it to Ezines is a way to receive a free plug or up their Google ranking and drive traffic back to their website.

That is not why I submit to EZines. My reason for submitting to Ezines and offering free content is because I’m passionate about writing. I enjoy writing my thoughts down about a variety of topics. Every sense I can remember my dream was to someday become a journalist. However my dreams got put on hold to raise a family. Now I’m almost thirty-six years old and I’m looking at my life and I’m saying Rose it is time that you did something with your writing. The only way that you are going to get further in life is by setting goals and developing a plan to move ahead with those set goals.

That is where you the reader comes in. You are the writers driving force that gives someone like me unsure about her writing the courage to move ahead. When I see something I wrote posted on a website or I receive comments like “I like how you think and the way you write. I will be using more of your articles in my blog “and “it is a good article. Thanks for writing it and distributing it for free for sites like ours to use”, or “KUDOS! What a great article and one that should be read by a lot of people in my line of work. I am sending my association members this article.” It really feels good as a writer and is a great honor. You might feel as the webmaster that you are just gathering content for your website and providing articles for your readers but little do you know that you are actually helping a writer like me with the motivation to write more articles. You are the driving force behind my writing.

Yes you the reader and webmaster are a great access to my career as a writer. Whatever it is as writer that we write it would be nothing without an audience. So today I acknowledge you the reader and the webmaster. Give yourself a huge pat on the back for it was you who just inspired this article and I thank you. I thank you for believing enough in my writing to use it for your website or send me feedback. It is a great feeling when you know that your writing is being enjoyed.
