I wasn't implying that you guys aren't supporting me, because I know you are. I really do.
This is just hard for me because I'm not the kind of person to say "Hey! Look at ME! Look at what I'm doing over here! Woo! I'm great!" Self promotion is not something that comes easily to me, and I blush something fierce when I get compliments.
That doesn't mean that I don't believe in myself, because I do. I know I could do this blog-o-spondant thing and do a great job with it. I'm busting my ass trying to make the contest blog a good one. I want it to be entertaining and informative. I also want to learn something along the way, and I think I'm accomplishing all of these things.
But right now that is not good enough. I need to get more connected or I'm not going to stay in the running. And run is what I'll do, right up to the end.
