Hey, everyone! I hope you’ve had as wonderful of a week as I have. There’s no better feeling in the world than feeling like you’re ‘in the zone’ so to speak; especially when it comes to doing something you love. This week, I was in the zone all week and really enjoyed creating all of the material for the site. It was one of those weeks where the words sort of wrote themselves and there’s no better feeling.
A feeling that could rival that amazing in the zone feeling would have to be reading a review of your writing by someone that loves it. Such was the case when I came across a review of Fred Hystere on a website called Gay Demons (Yes, it’s a gay porn site..and no, I don’t give a shit). The editor of the site named me his ‘Editor’s Pick’ one day this week, and the subsequent review that followed was probably the most flattering thing anyone’s ever written about me.
If you’re like me, the older you get the less you care about whether or not people find your body to be sexy, and the more you care about people thinking your mind is sexy. And that’s exactly how that review made me feel. When you put yourself out there as much as I do every day on this site and have the feeling that someone gets you, the feeling is indescribable. I sent a thank you note to the Editor of Gay Demons and in it I said something that has been my motto in 2011: Validation is the greatest motivator. Reading his comments have made me more pumped than ever to write, write, write!
The traffic on the site has been doubling consistently every week, and I couldn’t do it without the help of sites like Gay Demons, sharing their love of Fred Hystere with their readers. So, please, if you read something on the site that you like enough to share with your friends, do it! Every retweet on Twitter, sharing of an article on Facebook, and seal of approval on your site counts. As always, I will continue to reward you with the best music, both new and old, Daily Dickheads galore, and my amusing musings about everyday life.
This week’s Fredhead Weekend 10 has no specific theme. Every one of these songs deserves your attention. Some are super cheesy, but all are good fun.
Thanks again for all of your support, have a great weekend, and I’ll see you next week!
