Haters & Other “Negative” Things I’m Grateful For

First off, if you have ever left a hateful comment on something I’ve written: thank you.

Sincerely. Thank you.

You may have provided genuinely good feedback (if harsh). You may have made me laugh. You may have proven my point. But, at the very least, you drove more traffic to my writing, and for that I am immensely grateful.
