I received an email a couple of days ago to tell me that I was going to be Freshly Pressed. I was so shocked, I can’t lie, I thought that it was something that would never happen for me. Then after the email I waited and waited, and nothing happened. I even thought maybe it was a joke someone was playing on me. Then this morning it happened, and so now I can wear the badge of honour that says I’ve been freshly pressed.
The other surprising thing was the post that they decided to press, it was the one I did on myself on Monday. I thought I was being so cheeky doing that. I was brought up not to brag about myself, not to go on about myself, that sort of thing, and then I do it and I get rewarded for it.
A few people have been telling me how important it is to talk myself up. I am just not good at it, but I think it is something that I am going to have to try to get better at.
So it seems the number of followers you have isn’t a requisite, or they don’t take that into consideration, it really is probably more luck, that you do great posts that catches the editors eye.
I won’t go on today, but before I go, can I say thank you to WordPress for Freshly Pressing me, but most of all I wanted to say thank you to all my followers. You have been the best support and I appreciate all of you. You really are what drives me to make this blog the best I can.
