401


Somehow and someway I must've gone crazy! This is my 401st post on Keith's Space! When I started this blogging thing, I wondered quite often how long I was going to keep doing it. I read in one of 12Kyle's posts where he originally planned to do one post and then retire, like Jay-Z. Thankfully, he is still blogging to this day. I never thought anybody would care about what I had to say or what I thought about anything. But, judging by your comments, support, and how many people tell me they read and enjoy my blog (not to mention the "lurkers" who read and don't comment), I see that I was wrong.

I've heard some bloggers say that they do this for themselves and that they don't care how many comments they get. I said that too and the truth is, I would still be writing even if I didn't get any comments (which I did for the first 3 or 4 months of this blog). But, I'd be lying if I didn't say that I do care and get a thrill when I look at both of my blogs and see all of the comments. I love it when I get tagged and a new blogger begins commenting. I also love it when I see one or both of my blogs on somebody's blog roll. I am just humbled and honored.

I never expected to get this kind of attention or make this many friends from around the country and, if I include Angel, around the world. Believe me, I am humbled and just full of gratitude for all of you. It makes me that more determined to keep at it and tighten up my game.

Fellow blogger CareyCarey said that we bloggers blog from the cheap seats in the arena and that we don't get to sit in the "good seats" with the other forms of media and he's right. But, at the same time, let's not forget that us "new media" folks (on Blogger, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) just helped the nations first African-American President get elected and that was no mean feat. We are movin' on up and we aren't going to be ignored much longer. The other forms of media are going to have to move over and give us our courtside seats sooner rather than later.

I'm just proud to be a part of this new thing. May we catch on like a forest fire... and many "thanks" to all of you again for your love and support. Here's to (at least) another 400!!!
