I’m one of your new bloggers. Thank you for your lovely awards and words of encouragement. I just opened my Dashboard to find a little strange icon…which turned out to be a trophy, in my notifications. 500 likes!
Thank you so much for letting me know! I had it figured at 489, but we’ll go with your records.
As long as I have you here, I hope you don’t mind if I go on a bit. No one blogging publisher is going to be perfect. That being said, there’s always room for improvement.
Now, I’m not going to get on you about losing my poem about Diet Coke. I suppose I could have pushed some wrong button, it happens.
I totally didn’t, though. I compose on my computer, not on paper, so unfortunately that bit of genius is gone. It was really inspired, and funny. Writing at its most clever. Gone, baby Gone. But like I said, no problem.
I’m no complainer.
And, to show you how positive I am, I did fix that little problem of people clicking on my Avatar, only to be taken to a page that said I took my blog down. It took me 2 days. But what else do I have to do?
Three kids, laundry, shopping, meals, working out, baseball game, softball games, T Ball games, helping out at the local homeless shelter. I’m a channel of grace.
Now, I do have just a tiny bone to pick with you, though. About this Freshly Pressed business….
What exactly makes you FRESH PRESS someone? I’ve read some. They’re good. Fine. They are grammatical. Which I suppose is noteworthy. They don’t say to instead of too when they mean also. They know where to separate words into paragraphs. Big whoop.
Do you want me to write about my experience in the grocery store? I can do that! I’ve been known to make people chortle and chuckle all over the place.
You want poetry? Don’t lose my Diet Coke poem!
You like photography? Did you SEE that picture of my dog? I Instagrammed it and everything.
Do you realize it’s like being a cute little kid at an orphanage and being picked over? Or a puppy on display in a kennel being passed by without a second look at the Pet Shop?
Who needs to be Freshly Pressed?! Not this blogger. I don’t need outside validation from a bunch of guys sitting around computers.
But I’m not here to be a problem. I really do love WordPress. You guys are awesome. Really.
Please forget what I said. I won’t leave you. It’s ME. Not you. I get so jealous of those Fresh Bloggers.
I can be whatever you want me to be! Just tell me! And if you were to give me such an honor..how will I know if you choose me? Will music play as soon as I open my Dashboard? Da Da Da Daaaaaaaa!!!!
Cuz that’d be cool.
Not that I’m expecting it.
I’m glad we had this little talk. I feel better.
