I Might Just Be a Star-struck Celebrity

I’ve blogged about our amazing Disney Cruise.
I’ve blogged about how I DON’T Camp.
I’ve also blogged a letter to my friends (if they are still out there?)

But reallyโ€ฆ

I haven’t blogged about too much because I have 3 kids who take up A LOT of my free time I’m new to blogging.

Really new.

I’m also fairly new to Twitter.
(OK. So I started my twitter account last winter, way before I started bloggingโ€ฆ but really,
I had NO idea what I was doing with it for MONTHS.)

And I have to tell you something about Twitter:
(and this may make me sound a little ignorant, and possibly make a couple of you chuckle but…)

I had NO idea when I started my Twitter account that you could actually meet “real” people on it who you really connected with.
(I Know! Crazy ain’t it?)

So it was with some surprise when I started chatting with Jessica on Twitter, that I thought to myself: “I’ve found myself my 1st real twitter friend!”
(well maybe acquaintance would be a more appropriate word – don’t want to sound to stalker-ishโ€ฆ)

And then I started visiting Jessica’s blog Four Plus an Angel and was officially a stalker hooked.

I admit, it was one of the 1st blogs I EVER subscribed to.

I connected with her stories. I looked forward to her posts. And I watched in AWE all the support her blog followers left her in the form of comment after comment (after comment after comment after comment) on each and every post she published.

Over the last 6 months or so Jessica has always supported me as I transitioned to this new “profession” of blogging. Whether it be as a comment over at Mothers Central Blog (where I also write), or as a little extra encouragement during those times when I had hesitation about hitting the “publish button” on a particular post – Jessica has always offered up her support.

All this, and so much more, is why I was honored beyond belief when one day (via Twitter of course!) she asked me to write a guest post for her blog.

Jaw. WIDE. Open. Shock. Excitement. And (I admit) a bit overwhelmed. All at the same time.

So today is the day. And I feel like a star-struck celebrityโ€ฆ because I, newbie blogger that I am, get to grace the pages at Four Plus an Angel.

So stop on over to Four Plus an Angel to read my post here.

And if you’re visiting my blog for the first time via my guest post stick around!

Too much shameless self promotion? Sorry! I’m a “newbie.”
(Now, if you haven’t already, go check out my guest post!)

    How very lovely to meet you, any friend of Jessica’s is definitely worth coming over to check out.
    Your post on her blog today is beautiful and so very true … and writing a blog is something for you too … so soon, you will be planning bloggy conferences and we will all get to hug and squee IRL, and oh yes, btw, newbie shmewbie ๐Ÿ˜‰
    You got it going on …

      Thanks for stopping over! I’m so glad you enjoyed my guest post today over at Jessica’s. I loved checking out your blog and your About Me page! I too was in advertising… and occasionally fundraising (but totally try to avoid it if I can!) and will FOREVER be a volunteer ๐Ÿ™‚

      P.S. I just returned from Bloggy Boot Camp Chicago Conference a couple weeks ago. It was SO fun to meet and network with so many other people… can’t wait to go to my next one. Really, I promise, I am new… just VERY detail oriented (It’s the advertising, graphic designer in me.) Although, as I think more about it, the blog might be new, but in my head I have been blogging FOR YEARS! LOL.

  5. Hurray for you and so happy to see you over there!

    Hooray for you! Bravo! (-:
    PS: Can I have your autograph?

So yay, add me to twitter ;), add me to FB ;), subscribe if you would like ;), just know that you aren’t alone!! lol
