Who are you? Why are you here?
One of the things I like most about blogging and writing books is getting feedback from readers. My favorite part of the day is opening my inbox and seeing comments and emails from people who’ve connected with and enjoyed my work.
But for each person who takes the time to contact me and write me a note, there are hundreds more who are sitting there quietly listening to what I have to say.
I know this because I can see the page view counter on the MercuryStories stats screen.
I gotta say, it’s hard work. There isn’t much to go on. I ask myself questions like, If they typed in “sensitivity to mercury” in quotes in Google, does that mean they already know I have a post by that title, or it’s just a coincidence? There’s no way I’ll ever know.
I have a lot to say about the mercury poisoned life. And I agree with my climbing average page view counter, I’m pretty darn interesting. But this was never meant to be a monologue.
I started my blog and published my book because I wanted to start up a conversation about what it’s really like to recover from mercury poisoning. I’ll keep on blogging and writing as long as you keep showing up on my stats screen.
But I gotta tell you, the curiosity is killing me. Who are you? Why are you here? Are you ready to talk about it? Did you just stumble on this site while writing a paper about the planet mercury? Or are you in the throes of frequent dose chelation? Are you identifying with what I’m saying? Have you lived with mercury in your body and brain? Is there something you wish I’d write about because nobody ever talks about it, but you know for a fact every single mercury toxic person is struggling with it?
Just thought I’d ask the direct question.
It’s a better strategy than staring at the stats screen, psychically urging your search engine terms to shoot me an email. Don’t you think?
