This is a brief post to thank you to Word Press for featuring my last post, “The Grass is Always Greener on Someone Else’s Head” in Fresh Pressed yesterday. I was totally stunned, completely surprised, dizzy with delight, thrilled. I am away from home right now, at my 30th reunion (see new post), and had not checked anything on line. Imagine my surprise when I woke up to nearly 100 new comments!! It didn’t occur to me that I’d been “Pressed,” I just thought my friends had gotten awfully generous in their support! When I went to my stats and saw 1,700 new hits yesterday, I nearly swooned. Ok, maybe not swoon, but the word is so cool and it’s close! I was amazed, flabbergasted, honored and I’ve had a blast reading the comments today, while trying to catch up with old classmates.
The reunion starts shortly (check back for a re-cap), but I didn’t want to wait another minute to say thank you. Thank you to all of you who read my blog for the first time and took the time to like it or comment on it. It means a lot to me that my writing was viewed by so many people, and they took that time to read it and respond. Writing is what makes me tick, it gives me my groove. Thanks for encouraging me! For all my friends and other readers who have read from the start and supported me, thanks for pushing me along and letting me know that it matters. It means so much.
Off to the reunion. Check back for updates… though who knows how much of it will be suitable for print?
