Someone pinch me–I’m syndicated at BlogHer!

– Posted in: dancin' fool, featured blogger, on writing/blogging

To say that syndication has been a dream of mine since I was just a wee Charlotte is a huge understatement. Growing up, I was never a fan of the required history and science courses, but literature classes would make my heart skip a beat and I proudly scribbled in my journal whenever I could steal away from the many distractions around me. In college I discovered Sylvia Plath, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Virginia Woolf, and Kate Chopin. They instantly became my muses. I wanted to be like them, to write like them, and to see the world through their eyes. And so I traveled, had lovers, made mistakes, and learned outside the classroom all that I could. Slowly my writing began to take shape as I documented my fears, hopes, and frustrations, always keeping a positive outlook.

And then I experienced the biggest heartache I had ever known. I turned to blogging.

I’ve made some pretty amazing connections and formed many friendships with talented writers near and far via this blogging community and consider myself extremely lucky for the many doors that have opened up to me since I started.

But to be syndicated??

Well, that was always just a pipe dream.

And yet, it’s happening. Right here. So pinch me if you see me floating through the halls at work today, walking into walls, or dancing a jig (or my famous ho-down) at any point throughout the day. And please stop by and read my post What Not to Say to Your Single Friends. It would mean the world. You are my world.

Thank you all for helping to make my dreams come true. And thank you, BlogHer, for all that you do.

XOXO

Every day of my life, my friend. And thank you for putting it so directly. My dad used to say that every day is a gift, and it’s up to us to, in that first moment of being awake, recognize what we’ve been given – that one day – so that we can use it in the best way possible.
