It was yesterday the sky was dark and bleak. I was scrubbing the floor and toiling with ideas for my next post. I was ready to rant about another day with my mop when I slunk at my computer opening my inbox only to discover notifications for comments upon comments!
I scrolled down, “Sacre Bleu! This cannot be!”
A message appeared from one of the blogging gods” Congrats! Your post (https://belleofthecarnival.com/2011/09/09/are-you-a-hugger/) has been promoted to Freshly Pressed on the WordPress.com home page.”
I jumped from my chair, my heart leapt into my throat, and I ran out of the room to call my husband. It was with that moment I tripped over my baggy sweat pants, smashing my face into the wall! It was despite the pain – I ran up the stairs only to trip on the last step, falling once again, sending my wrist into a throbbing yelp!
I grabbed the phone, dialed his number, and anxiously waited for him to answer “Honey! I made freshly pressed!”
“What? Your coffee is freshly pressed?”
“No! A story wrangler has decided to feature my post on Freshly Pressed!”
“A story wrangler?”
“You know an editor! A blogging god has decided one of my posts is good enough for freshly pressed.”
“I’m still not getting you.”
It was with exasperation and excitement I hung up the phone! Only to run down the stairs, trip on my treacherous pants, and hit the floor! I ignored the pain like a trained athlete and sprinted back to the computer only to send the miraculous link to my husband.
I then began to play peek-a-boo with my blog for several minutes. Did this really happen? It did. I would then shut-off my screen and turn back on the screen. Yup my post is still there…
The past two days have been exciting, over-whelming, and I am thrilled that the Blogging Gods granted me the gift of Freshly Pressed! It with this I offer you my most biggest and awkward hug! Thank you for you for making this little blogger one very bruised and happy gal!
