5. We. Get. Featured.
One of the coolest honors on blogland is to be featured on someone’s blog. It makes you feel all giddy inside like a unicorn on laughing gas. I’ve been featured on a few, and it totally made my day. I’d tell random strangers at work, “Hey guess what! I was featured on a blog today!”
They looked at me funny, and then I remembered that they are mere infants with no knowledge of the blogging world, reigning supreme at number 2. Then I shunned them.
Do you know what’s even cooler than being featured? Having an awesome button to show for it! There are those blogs out there that have like, a million “featured on” buttons. I would stand and applaud you, but no one is watching me do it so it’d be awkward and pointless…. but mentally, there’s a standing ovation going on. Starting with the slow build up clap and all.
I seriously want those buttons. Do you make them? Do they come in your email? If they did, I’d be waiting on them like the dad on Christmas Story waited for his leg lamp. You know how excited he was.
I bet a huge reason why people don’t have them very often is because it’s HARD to get all your information into a 125x125 box. This one is still a mystery to me. Its like me trying to fit into my size 5 jeans…it ain’t happenin.
I guess I do have one button I could make…
They’re like brownie patches. I was a brownie for a total of two weeks before I realized that my toys and being outside was way more fun. Also, I played with Hot Wheels when I was little. Only I didn’t race them. They got married and had babies. Shhh…I know…I know.
Anyway, they are like brownie patches. I love going to a person’s blog and being like.. wow, they have been featured on so many things! It’s a huge accomplishment, and I salute you for having amazing content that people want to share. I have found some of my favorite blogs this way.
(Not saying that if you don’t get featured, you’re not a great blog, because that’s certainly not true).
Everyone should have a “featured on” button. That’s why, today…I’ve decided to make a special FO (if you will) button for everyone who reads or comments on my post. Oh man, I know you’re just racing to the comment form right now ;) Go ahead, take that. It’s yours. Also, I’m shamelessly promoting my series. Tee hee.
Stay tuned for next week, as we discover the joys and the smell of burlap.
Say yes to the fist pump.
