One Year Anniversary Blogging with BlogHer, and Featured Seven Times!
By HomeRearedChef on March 05, 2012
Celebrating one year with BlogHer! Sunday, March 6, 2011, I posted my very first blog with BlogHer, entitled, “Twenty-Nine Years Still Married… And they said it wouldn’t last!” I again posted the next day; I wrote my first menopausal blog, “Love and Menopause as a Frumpy Fifty-four Year-old.” And I will admit that I was uneasy posting about menopause and my symptoms, candidly sharing with everyone how I felt. Since, I have posted 195 blogs, not including this one. I have also been featured seven times; a thrill and an honor.
Someone found my blogs interesting enough to feature!
But I am going through withdrawals now. Since my last featured blog, in November 2011, I have posted a total of 64 times but feel as if I have fallen off the radar. Sigh!
But, hey, I am not complaining, just saying, is all.
Don’t get me wrong; I am grateful to BlogHer for the opportunity to share with the world my every thought, my every mood, my every feeling. I am an open diary, an easy target for criticism and ridicule. But do I care…certainly not! I’m a big girl and I can take it. I’ll cry in the privacy of my room!
Being “Featured,” however, is something many of my compadres can relate to; it makes you feel like a Superstar, no matter how fleeting the moment: you alone are on stage and all eyes are upon you. You are the envy of fellow bloggers.
But suddenly your “music records,” your “memoirs,” the sale of “tickets to a one-night only” performance are no longer selling. You have been given a taste of stardom, and then you are tossed aside like an old dish rag. Sigh!
Note: Blogging is addicting, as is checking daily to see how many views and comments you’ve received, and if you may perhaps see your post in lights, because you’ve been “Featured.” So be warned, future bloggers!
Wow! It feels good to have gotten all that off my chest! It is, somehow, FREEING!
Phew! And after a good night’s rest, featured or not, I am off to write my next blog.
We dream a life to be; we live to dream that life! (vka)
