I’ve got big news. No not pregnant. But it’s equally miraculous.
A couple months ago I submitted some of my blog posts for BlogHer’s Voices of The Year. For my friends who aren’t really into blogging, but thankfully read mine, BlogHer is the largest community of women bloggers. It’s got an audience of 92 million each month.
Anyway, each year a committee selects posts to be recognized as one of the Voices of The Year and a handful the honoreees read their post at the celebratory dinner at BlogHer’s annual convention. This year there were more than 2,600 submissions and 100 were chosen as honorees, 12 have the opportunity to read at the ceremony. I am so ecstatic to announce that I am among the 12!!!
Isn’t that crazytown? I agree. I’m stoked though. I’m told hundreds will probably be in the audience, which will be so exciting. I don’t mind speaking in front of big crowds, in fact I think it’s kinda fun. But honestly, I still can’t get over that they chose me as one of the Voices of the Year, let alone being among the 12.
So that’s my news! I am not supposed to disclose which piece I’ll be reading but I can give ya’ll a hint… It’s the one about … me.
You should check out the list of honorees here, as there’s some crazily talented writers whose prose can move you to laughter, tears or both.
