    Although I follow you on Twitter, I am very grateful for these posts. You fulfill what I, as a reader, look for in a writer: You do a good job and I enjoy your work. That’s what I, as a writer, am trying to do with my books and blog posts, that’s how you build an audience.
    Thanks again.
    Steph
