I have a New Year's Surprise for you!

January 02, 2011

You know that old saying "Be careful what you post online, because you never know when an internet, web-based, online e-zine will take your words and use them to turn you into an instant star"?

Well it's true!   Except the star part.  No one has even asked for my autograph yet.

cuz I was featured in The Barrel  



Pause for effect


So exciting, right?

What?  You say you've never heard of it?  That's ok.  You've probably never heard of Being Awesome, or Keeping Up With the Times either.  Don't beat yourself up about it.

It really is exciting!  And the magazine is really very cute and you should probably check it out anyway.  And they didn't even tell me to say that.  They didn't ask me to advertise them in anyway whatsoever, so all of this plugging is purely selfish on my part.    Let's hear it for stuff like this!!

  3. I just feel like calling everyone I know and telling them how famous you are and trying to figure out some way to take credit for your awesomeness. So exciting!

  4. Do you wish you had written a few things different now that the whole world of perfect strangers will be looking at your blog? One time I reviewed a book on my blog and then the author who I never thought would read the review commented. It was embarrassing because I was slightly critical of the book and wrote some stupid things. I thought just my friends and family would ever read it. Anyway I think it is cool that you are in a magazine. Hmm, maybe I shouldn't post this comment on you blog because now perfect strangers will be reading this!

  5. That is so fricking cool!! Congratulations Elesa! I admit I had never heard of The Barrel, but then, I'm Not With It, either, so. That article she wrote about you (complete with quotes) is so astoundingly cool, I'm going to pretend I know you just so I can be famous by association. Hope that's OK with you! And know that I'm going to say it whether it is or not!

  8. Yes, Elesa, haven't I complimented you on how creative your writing is? Congrats on being published! I think you should post your Christmas cards...they are so creative. I want to copy yours and pretend I was that creative. Let's see, who will pout for me?

  9. Well you are semi-famous because I found you through the Barrel. I also think we could be kindred spirits, based on your book list alone. Thank you for not listing Twilight and for being smart enough to read His Dark Materials.

  10. I'd like your autograph! And Anne, I think you can take SOME credit. You could say without you, this blog wouldn't exist. Now I'm trying to figure how I can take credit, I'm not coming up with anything. Although I knew about this, it took me 3 mos. to check it out. I like to read "Ahem" in large doses.

  11. And congrats Elesa, I'm not surprized because almost everytime I read your blog I laugh so hard I cry.
