I want everybody to know that mine is not a tactic of self-promotion. It is also not a "skill" at getting my work "out there." It is simple— I have conversations. They are everyday conversations and the only difference is that I have these conversations through my blog, my Facebook Page, my Twitter and my Email. I have been doing the very same thing that I have been doing since I was a child— writing down and saying out loud, the thoughts that I have in my mind, which are more like the fruits of my eavesdropping on the conversations of Elves and Owls! And many of the things that I write and that I teach, are direct products of my dreams at night! Such has been the case, since I was a child. The difference between then and now, is that now I have an audience; I'm not just writing in my little, glittery notebook anymore (yes, I used to write it all down in my little pink and glittery notebook when I was a child.) No, this is not a skill that I have learned. No, it is not called "self-promotion." It is called being who I am and doing what I do, whilst inviting others to partake in whatever it is that happens as a result of that.

I came across an article by another author, about how to "grow a following" by "engaging with people" as if engaging with people is primarily a ploy to grow one's audience and build one's name. To which I responded, that I simply talk to people because they talk to me, that I talk to people because they are worth talking to. And does this all mean that I am such a good person? Not really. Maybe I'm just an Elf and this is the way of the Elves! ;-)
And that is all I wanted to say, to set the record straight, once and for all. Thank you all for reading the things that I write, it is an honour for me, that my work is appreciated and experienced by many people, from all over the world. Thank you for being here, for reading the things that I write, and for caring.
