The opposite of disgruntled has to be gruntled (at least, as far as I can tell) – I was thinking of this and trying to make myself gruntled.
Can you just do that?
Sort of like “making yourself” a blogger.
There is no license needed to be gruntled, no test to take, no initiation fee or any period of time when you are on grundle probation. (to see if you have what it takes)
You just do it.
You accept where and what you are and choose to make the best of it.
Like making yourself a blogger – (what, that again?)
Yea! – That again … because in the next couple weeks or so– unless I do something to completely screw it up – I should hit the blogging milestone of 1000 followers.
So I made a chart to show what it feels like to be at this cusp of greatness!
It means that this little minnow of a blog has grown up to be a medium size and completely legal sport fish in this bizarre world.
If you hook into this blog, you can expect a nice little tussle on the end of the line and a good picture to take before you release me back in the water.
So many little minnow blogs never grow up and make it – and that is sad.
Half the blogs that follow me probably don’t exist anymore – and that is sad.
Sad because all you have to do is keep posting until you find your voice.
“What if I don’t have a voice?”
You do, and you will find it if you keep posting.
So thanks for staying with me through all the rants, photos, drawings and not-quite-legal music captures.
It means a ton to hit this milestone even if half of you are already gone.
Come back and try again.
There are no rules saying you can’t – most of us fail miserably the first time – this blog is my second attempt after 6 months with a horrible one and 3 followers.
Thanks for making me a respectable sized fish in this web ocean.
I really do enjoy each like, follow, and comment.
Even if I may appear a tad snarky and disgruntled at times.
My name is Wayne and I am gruntled. [polite applause]
Cheers from the cave.
