Today I woke up with butterflies in my belly. I set my alarm for the first time, in like ever, because I had places to be, things to do. The hall had to be set up for the ball, I had the Kidspot announcement at 10, I had a cameraman from the Project coming at 1. A BIG DAY. Oh, and the sun was shining. Let’s not forget that. After days and days of fog and rain and wind, there was sun. It was going to be a good day.
And it was.
I can’t say I’m not disappointed that I didn’t make the cut for Kidspot. Because I’m human and I worked really, really hard at all the posts. To vary the content, the mediums, the message. All while keeping it true to BabyMac. But it’s OK. They chose a great winner and I know Katrina will do them proud in NYC.
I had an amazing opportunity later in the day to talk about something I love. Blogging. The Project are running a story in the next week and lucky little ME got to talk about it. About the amazing, supportive community that surrounds me – the blogging community and all the BabyMac readers. Yes YOU. That writing about the things that I love – my family, my home, what I eat, entertaining, my life, has people interested. And it might even me something I could do FOR A LIVING. Fancy that! Wonderful people, buoying me up, supporting and loving me along the way, well it blows my mind. The fact that a mainstream TV is interested in what we all do and that brands are starting to listen to my voice, our voices. Well, I think it’s fucking exciting. And I am beyond proud that today I got to be a spokesperson for us today. Booyah!
I am beyond grateful for all your kind comments, emails, messages of kindness and support today. Thank you. I am so proud of what I have achieved over the past year, for being acknowledged as being a Top Blogger, and a top 5 blogger. What great company I was in!
And Hyundai, if you’re keen? I have a GREAT idea for a TV commercial for you. Have you heard of Chet Faker? Let’s talk…
