The Freshly Pressed Gods are like The Claw on Toy Story – you know they’re up there but all you can do is wait for the day when the claw catches you.
When I checked my e-mail and read that the Freshly Pressed “Editorial Czar” had plucked me out of the thousands of blogs and put me on the front page my heart freaked out and my face went like this:
When I checked Freshly Pressed and saw that my dream really had come true, I turned into a little green alien from Toy Story. The claawwwwww!
Then I was bombarded with comments to approve! It was so nice to be on the receiving end of all the comments, and I thank all the people who came to my page. (I hope they’ll come back again)
Occasionally a Freshly Pressed blogger will respond to every comment the masses make, and I have always felt this was very nice. When people are freshly pressed and can’t be bothered to respond to even one comment I tend to think “jerk.”
I always said that if I got lucky and was FP’d I would respond to everyone because everyone wants to be heard – that’s why they comment. So I tried. At first I responded to every comment, but it got overwhelming so I only commented to people who had posted a full comment versus a “great post” type comment, although those comments were appreciated as well.
But, like all good things, Freshly Pressed-dom lasts only 24 hours or so. I can only hope to be captured by the claw again and achieve another blissful day of fame!
Oh, what the heck. Let’s relive it one last time. That’s right, I took a screen shot.
