Holy cow! (And I’m saying cow because I’ve been cursing too much on my blog lately.)
I’m officially Freshly Pressed. Which is a big deal to bloggers. For nonbloggers, this means that WordPress has selected one of my posts to put on their main Freshly Pressed page for all bloggers who follow it to see.
This has made my day, maybe my month. Hell, I think it made my year. It’s been one of those years.
Supposedly getting Freshly Pressed is a 1 in 80,000 chance. Wordpress editors pick 19 posts per day to feature out of 451,713 bloggers, 934,065 new posts, 1,367,589 comments, and 212,837,940 words posted daily on WordPress.com.
Clearly someone was asleep at the wheel when they selected my “If you’re not registered to vote, quit reading my blog and register” post. Just kidding, it’s more likely that they agree that this is an important issue.
We’ll see how much my blog traffic stats change after this new found, short lived fame. I’ll try not to get a big head. Any bigger than it already is, since my head is bizarrely large and the Sienfeld episode –where Elaine walks in the park and birds fly into her head because her head is so big and the birds can’t miss it — was based on my head size.
PS: Have you registered to vote or made time on your calendar to make sure to vote?
Today I am thankful for getting Freshly Pressed! And for my loyal readers. Thank you.
