What do you get when you breed a whore with someone who's hyper-attentive?

The answer? An attention whore. ;) Yes, I was inspired to use the word "whore" in a post by Absolutely Narcissism. LOL

What's going on? I wanted to draw your attention to the left side of my blog...it's a poll asking you to voice your opinion on how I should guide my blog. Yes, I am an attention whore. LOL

The reason I am asking is I have noticed how the traffic really varies based on the nature of my posts. I know it's not the direct result from my rounds on other bloggers.

I started this blog at a blogger's urging (thank you, Shelle from BlokThoughts) because she was very curious about me, about how I would handle things, and about what my experiences were like when I was growing up.

I used to blog weekly on MySpace years ago, but it was more of using what was going on around the world and my life as my source of blogging. Got tired of MySpace's limiting design and switched to Facebook. Didn't like the blogging format on Facebook, so I stopped blogging altogether.

Almost three years ago, a friend nervously encouraged me to try out Blogger (she had a naughty blog and was worried about what I'd think of her - I totally supported her and I had no problem with that). I explored many different aspects of myself, but I never touched on my identity as a deaf person or as a deaf parent in Blogger. Then about a year and half later, I found Shelle and the rest is history.

I am ALWAYS interested in your opinions and I have enjoyed getting e-mail from you. Don't stop expressing yourself to me, either publicly or privately.

Thanks for the shout-out, I am a whore for that kind of stuff! haha
Personally, I enjoy hearing stories of your experiences as a deaf person. But I must admit, my life is sometimes so intense with everything that goes on in it, that I do love to laugh.
But you are a good writer, so I trust you will continue showing us your authentic, fantastic self.

We're all in some ways attention whores. You're the right kind, though! ;)

Write about anything ~ I like the way you write.

DCHY said...

Shelle - it IS a pleasure to share my world with all of you. Thank you for the push.

nitebyrd - haha at "the right kind". Glad to know you like my writing. :)

There's a reason I've been blogging for nearly 5 years, and my attention-whoredom would be part of it, LOL.

Shoot, blog about whatever floats your boat. I'm a recent reader, but you have a good way of telling a story so I figure just let 'er rip :)

I voted.

I enjoy reading all the stories on your blog whether you use naughty words or not.

I love the variety that you blog about. Sometimes I laugh and sometimes I am sad.
It's good to feel different things.

I'd like to know if there are hard things about communicating with your kids. Do they "get" you?

Dude! i'm so glad you discovered blogger. You have such a unique spin of logic and views of the people of this planet. And I like the way we met too. Through my narrow minded sign language post. haha

DCHY said...

Amanda - ok, I will!

ADSL - I do cuss...but I figured that I'd need all the readers I can get. ;)

GoE - that's an excellent question. Yes and no is the short answer.

Copyboy - hehe, yeah!

I like your blog b/c it gives me something different to digest... other than just those I normally read - mostly about sex. Your blog is honest and direct. Two things I like very much!

:-)

Chloe - glad to be a blog that is
of a different and refreshingly honest nature. ;)
