It’s Like Being Famous, Only Not

OK, so I realize that it’s incredibly dorky to be as excited as I am about yesterday’s post making both the DC Blogs roundup and the Washington Post Express Blog Log (page 36). But so be it — I’m the dork whose blog got the big font in the free paper everyone leaves all over the Metro, and I’m damned happy about it.

(I have been told by two people that, since my traffic is going to go up now, I need to write something really compelling. This is all I’ve got time for, alas, as I sit here scarfing my chicken salad sandwich and awaiting the start of my 1:30 conference call. Sorry. I’ll be more impressive later, I promise.)

    CONGRATS! It is awesome to be so ACCOMPLISHED — not “dorky” for sure !! It is all about how you write and the topics you choose. We could all comment on your story, but who else would think to have written & photographed it in the first place.

    Congrats! I made that big-print spot in Express a year ago or thereabouts – it shows that they’re actually paying attention!

    Go, Sweetpea!

    YEAH for you! You are by no means “dorky,” unless you mean to imply that all of us are also “dorky” for being excited too. You have a gift. Go with it!

    I think it’s an excellent accomplishment and not dorky at all. I’m sure that there are many blogs that never have the honor.

    Shut UP, that is so fun! That’s the first thing I read when I open the Express, are you kidding?
