“An overdose of praise is like 10 lumps of sugar in coffee; only a very few people can swallow it.” Emily Post
All of you who follow this blog are the greatest in the world. I have it on good authority you’re the best people to be followed by. I wouldn’t trade one of you for a thousand of Oprah followers. It’s true. I’ve seen it with my own eyes. Her followers are only half there. They don’y even read her posts, they just pretend to. You, my loyal followers however, consume every word that comes out of this site. You are truly amazing.
Was that a little much? Maybe around 10 lumps of sugar worth?
Well, that’s what it seems like when you give someone too much praise. If you’re truly sincere, a few kind words is all it takes.
If you’re insincere, then why bother? You’d be lying and most people would know it. If you don’t mean it, then it’s best not to say it. Otherwise you’ll sound like ten lumps of sugar.
Now, getting back to the praise. I can’t say with surety whether you’re the best people to be followed by or not. I’d like to think so.
What I can say is that all of you chose to follow these posts because you like them, not to return the favor because I followed your blog. That inspires me to keep posting, and for that, I thank you.
