I'm Kind of A Big Deal

Dudes, lookit. A post of mine is featured on the front page of BlogHer today. Here's the post (which you faithful readers will remember from a few weeks ago), and here's the front page so you can see me in all my full-frontal page glory.

Y'all! Why don't you go over there and look around, but play it cool, like, "Oh, why who is this amusing Suburban Matron? So droll!" Maybe wear a disguise or something. And leave a comment so they'll think people like me. Only do that once, Mom and Dad.

I hope you guys are having a fun Fourth weekend. We kicked it off with a neighborhood kids' bike parade this morning, and then the neighborhood pool party. Oh my God, what a mashup! Blog soup again. I will have more to report.

Go see me on BlogHer! There's other good stuff to read over there, not ONLY me. xoxo-B

Awesome! Did they choose you just because you are so fabulous? Did they let you know you were a chosen one? I made a comment, albeit not a very eloquent one, but I'm tired. ;-)

I'm not sure what criteria of fabulosity I met, but one of their editors emailed me last week and asked if they could syndicate that post. I don't know how or when they'd taken note of it--it might have been one of my posts linked to under the BlogHer ads in my slice of the network. I said sure and then they let me know it would be going up today. Then I was at the pool for like nine hours today and I almost forgot to go look.

Hey, that is awesome! You're not only fabulous, you're famous!!

And, OMG, did you read that crazy "breastfeeding causes divorce" madness linked above your post on BlogHer?

Kelly said...

Look at you!! I think this should be one of the back up plans...PS- we're due for a date night when C and I get back from the lake ;)

Congrats, Becky! That's awesome!

Very cool! Congratulations!

Keely said...

Uh, OBVIOUSLY you're a big deal. It's about time they noticed!

M said...

Very awesome and you are most deserving of such attention. Just don't forget us early Sub Mat readers when you're jetting around to book signings!

I'm sure you've probably disclosed this previously, but as a lit person I'm most curious about your diss topic. Can you disclose it?

You are so fucking cool.

Becky said...

Thanks you guys!

Mary, my field is 18th Century British Lit, especially letters and novels told in letters. What about you?

Have y'all had a nice 4th? We just got home from Normal Neighbor's house. We had a great time but my feet are killing me. Lots of fireworks all over this year. More than last year maybe.

Go Beck. They should be sending you a very large check.

delaine said...

Yeah, Becky! We thought you were a Big Deal way back when. Your writing style is wonderful! I always enjoy your posts.

Michele R said...

Becky, that is wonderful. Bet you were pretty excited to get that email. I have said it before--don't forget us little people when the masses find out about you.

We're famous? Congratulations, that's awesome and you deserve it!

Bonnie said...

Exciting! Have a good weekend.
