How You Know You've Made It As A Blogger

I've made it as a blogger.


I didn't know if this would ever happen... I mean, lightning rarely strikes twice, and I had my first bit of electrocution as a celebrity gossip blogger. So I'm just flattered and trying to prepare myself for the fame that's sure to be around the corner.

How do I know I've "made it" as a blogger, you ask? Well, it's when you start having people come to you for things. With the celebrity gossip thing, I had publicists contacting me out of the blue to promote their shows, artists, whatever. And while mostly that just meant I got a lot of press releases from Animal Planet, National Geographic, and Playboy, it was something.

And you'd be surprised how much a site's Google rankings improve when you include keywords like "nude," "Victoria's Secret models," and "Playboy." Especially when they're all in one sentence like that.

So this past week, when I was told by blogger Feelmore that she was naming me as a recipient to the award below (I didn't forget!), I was honored.

But I guess it brought my blog to the attention of some of her important friends, because NoNine Recordings emailed me soon after and gave me a song from their new artist, David Minor.

So obviously, I've made it.

I've also disclosed that I got a freebie, so now everyone (*cough* government regulators *cough*) can be happy.

So thank you all for making this happen. I'm tearing up a little when I think of all my fans and my supporters, and the long hard hours I've put into this blog for 2.5 whole months. Oh, gosh, I don't want to forget my friends, my family, my dog... everyone who has made this journey with me.

This also means I may need to stop associating with some of you non-freebie-receivers. Sorry, but now that I'm in demand I really have to focus on my work and perfecting my craft and dodging the photogs.

(Or you can just enjoy the free song by David Minor, too, thanks to the generous people at NoNine Recordings. That would actually fix everything.)

Congratulations! Isn't it the most exhilarating feeling in the world?

(For some reason, that word looks wrong, but automatic spell check says otherwise. My brain has gone to pot.)

Enjoy your new-found celebrity, but remember to use some of your fame for good.

So glad my very important friends found you - soon we'll be wearing enormous dark shades and be throwing cell phones at assistants. you deserve the award!

oh and speaking of music, check my blog out for some more from my trip-hop group, Svelt St.

Aww, so sweet to include your family there. Now maybe you should start reciprocating your family's support and occasionally visit my blog! :ob

Congratulations on "making it" haha-- I don't think I'll ever get there, but I'm okay with that. I enjoy being back in the shadows ;)
