Once upon a time, I was an artist. Making very intricate jewelry. When it came time to sell it, I fell short of being able to say, “Isn’t that just beautiful! It would look so GREAT on you.”
I just couldn’t do it. “Buy it or not, it’s your decision; it will find a home.”
That’s also when I realized I could easily cheerlead for others (PR is my calling), but not for any of my own work… How can one judge one’s own work and then really brag about it, unless there’s that bit of narcissism in one’s DNA? (Maybe I have a smidge?)
So, I think this is the fourth email I’ve received from Lisa, and just ignored them, until right now for the above reason ~ How would I do that?
It took a while to find some sense in it; and, then I found an easy way. Some people do like wine blogs and will vote for them. Readers might like to know about their friends on this very formidable list, each of the blogs are fascinating reading, after reviewing them. So more blog options for you, Dear Reader, related to wine).
