I have received millions of emails that have asked me for help. They often start out like this, "Dear Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar, I need your help! I'm addicted to blog hops and blogfests and writing competitions and writing challenges and I have this weird fascination with the alphabet and I can't seem to stop writing run-on sentences. Penny, I'm begging you. Can you help?"
So I send back an email stating, "Why this fascination with all those things?" The reply to my email goes something like this, "I love to be a part of a sharing, caring blogging community. Okay, maybe I have some other reasons. I join those challenges and even create my own challenges because I want to ego-trip and accumulate followers. There, I said it. What should I do, Penny? I'm obsessed!"
I reply, "My human friend, you need a blogfest detox. Try staying away from all those tours and just do some writing that shows your originality. It will take some practice, but you can do this. I'm here to help you. You have my total support.".
