Within days after I began my so-called blogging career, my first post, Why I Hate Witty People was Freshly Pressed. Informed by email that I was now one of the dozen or so bloggers singled out every day by the wordpress.com staff to appear on what is, essentially, wordpress.com’s front page, I was honored, humbled and confused as hell as to how I got there.
I mean, I’m not related to anyone affiliated with the platform. If I’ve snogged any staff members, I don’t remember having done so – and it would have been a long time ago because I’m a married woman. Then again, if I did snog a staff member, I’m sure it was a really good kiss and, ummm, I’m sure I enjoyed it and don’t be hurt that I’ve forgotten you. I’m a naturally forgetful person. I swear. I also didn’t bribe anyone because wordpress.com was uninterested in trading my mother’s Avon doll collection for viral fame. Big mistake. One day, those dolls will be valuable.
