So today I made a very important discovery regarding Cowbird. Today I finally decided to click on the swirly little 'Connections' button at the top of the screen in order to see what it did. Wonder of wonders, it led me to a page containing messages from different people about my stories, some written months earlier. My reaction was the following: "Oh my GOODNESS!" I had no clue this existed! At this point, I am simultaneously embarrassed about my terrible technological abilities (which have plagued me all my life,) and delighted by the all-around wonderfulness of people's comments. You guys are awesome! I'm thrilled that my stories have struck some harmonious chords within your hearts, and I'm glad I was finally able to read your responses- better late than never, I suppose!
If I can figure out whether there is a way to reply to these messages, I will definitely keep track of that in the future. Until then, thank you all so much for engaging with my writing, and especially for continually producing inspiring and heartfelt stories of your own for me to read. One can never have enough stories!
Until next time, please enjoy this picture of my dog, Harley, whose knowledge and expertise of the internet is roughly equivalent to my own. :)
