This is a beautifully written piece,
Total misread.

I wanted to do this as a response instead of a private note because I realized something I honestly hate to admit when people comment about my work.

You are right. I was wrong.

Most of the time, I err on the side of promoting my stuff. As a recovering shy kid now needing to market myself (like a lot of people do), I try to get over myself and place calls to action when I can.

But after reading back over this article, the call to action didn’t fit the post, it wasn’t relevant, and it was above all else selfish.

Thank you for the non-trolling criticism and for pointing out I’d gone too far. It’s a good reminder that not every post can be forced into lead generation.

For the same reason I refuse to put full screen pop ups on my website, I took the trick ending off this post.

Thanks for keeping me honest.

P. S. I’d love if you sent me an email to chat. Curious about your thoughts on the state of the Internet. I won’t try to sell you anything or put you on a newsletter. Promise ;)
