If it makes you want to punch me in the face, well... please don't. But that's great too.
As a writer, the best compliment you can give me is an emotional response to my words. I don't care if it's joy or rage. If I am able to incite an emotional response from you using nothing but my words... that's pretty darn impressive.
The next best compliments I can receive are:
Your continued readership
Your word of mouth - thanks for the free publicity, don't forget to mention the page address...
I was told today that one opinion of this blog is that, "Mandy always thinks her opinion is the right one."
To this I say, well duh.
That's not because I'm arrogant. It's because I'm honest. Show me one person who says, "This is what I believe... but I know I'm wrong." We all hold our beliefs to be true. Just because I'm a bit more passionate about my beliefs doesn't make me any different from you.
So love me or hate me... makes no difference. So long as I don't bore you, I'm doing a job that I'll stand behind with pride.
