Freshly Pressed

Got the word Tuesday
from Michelle, the Story Wrangler.
A short gestation – one to two days.
Never thought it would happen,
Just happy to have a place to write,
to experiment, to publish all these pics.

And then the mystery of friendship,
comments, support – egging me on.
Ode to the Blogosphere
Ode to you.

  8. I know I’m supposed to say “Congratulations” and I do say “Congratulations” but I also have the urge to add, “The check’s in the mail”. I’m very happy for you, but this is also fortuitous for me. You rock Cathy!

  10. Some people said it’s called 15 minutes of fame. But I bet it lasts much longer than that. It’s glory. It’s pride. Have you grabbed your Freshly Pressed badge yet? Got to display it on your homepage (to annoy others non Freshly Pressed……..).

    Great job! You deserved it. Take care and keep it up!

      Janet,
      Who knows how long it will last – I’m just having fun right now. I do have to go work out though, my butt is getting wider sitting here for so long (not complaining, mind you!) And yes, I moved that badge over the moment I realized it had been published. It’s there now! YES! Thanks, Janet. I think you are going to be my new best friend! (not to creep you out or anything but I’m likin your sense of humor!)

      • WordPress is a magical place for like-minded people to meet. Are you going to reply to hundreds of comments like you do now? Take care and enjoy writing (no, of course you’re not too carried away by the fame.) You’re a down to earth blogger.

        Yes it is a magical place. No I won’t be replying to hundreds of comments – just enjoying my 15 minutes. Besides, it’s already slowing down and it will all be history by the time my announcement marches across the FP page from upper left to lower right. But it does seem to have struck a nerve for people and that pleases me. I’m glad that fellow bloggers can relate. And I hope the new followers stick around for awhile.

        The other great news is that this fell on my day away from the office (I’m a physiotherapist in private practice) so I had the time and didn’t leave everyone
        wondering where I went…Now I want to go see what you’re up to, Janet!
