Kind of says it all, doesn't it?

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it more than once: I’m really new to blogging and I’m error-prone.

Something strange happened to this blog on June 9: it got noticed BIG time. Why? I asked myself. Being as straight with myself as I could, I replied, Lorna, I have no freaking clue. I’d been working on posts and pages (figuring out what they were and writing them) for about 6 weeks. On June 8, I sent an email out to about 15 friends and family. Here is the message I sent: If you’ve been wondering how I spend my time, some of the mystery can be revealed by visiting this site:
Yes, I’ve entered the blog-a-sphere to begin sharing my writing. It may go nowhere (probably); it may go viral (unlikely). What’s important is that I’m writing and I’m having fun. Anything else is a bonus. If you have the time and inclination, check out my blog. If you like it, send the link to your friends–I’m told that’s how this social networking thing works! Thanks!

The next morning Lorna’s Voice was shouting out all over the place–over 3,500 views! I was stunned.

Then a few comments (of the hundreds of comments) I received included, “Congratulations on being FP!” What? Again, I was clueless. I was still wondering which of my family/ friends had THAT many connections and who all these kind strangers were who were commenting on my posts–one post in particular.

Today, I finally got it. My blog learning curve is not impressive. FP = Freshly Pressed = Quite the Honor. But this happened to me on the same night I decided to release Lorna’s Voice to my little private world. Talk about a coincidence!

I’m explaining this because I want to thank the Freshly Pressed Decision-Makers (whoever you are) for noticing and appreciating my “To be Honest With You…” post. You really jump-started my blogging career at the starting gate!

I should have recognized your recognition of my post sooner, but better late than never (except in the case of HarvardConnect and Facebook)!

To everyone at and to all of you who have checked in to see what I’ve been up to, once again and forevermore…

This one kind of says it all, too!
