Have you heard the news? I’m now a blogger for the Huffington Post!
My essay about how I met John on Match.com appeared this week on what is known in the trade as HP’s “vertical”—HuffPost/50. The first day it ran, I received nearly 600 visits to the blog. Yowza!
This has been quite a year, friends: blogging for Katie Couric’s new show, joining the Viewpoints Blogger Review panel (look for my next report tomorrow!), interviewing Sissy Spacek and Sally Field for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, being named one of the top seven blogs for those over 50 by the Huffington Post, and now this relationship with them.
As always, I couldn’t do it and I wouldn’t be here it if weren’t for you.
If you have a moment, I’d love it if you could visit the HP site and like the article on Facebook, or tweet it, or leave a comment. In the wonderful world of digital publishing, that sort of activity makes a tremendous difference. Thank you in advance for your extra support!
CON GRAT U LATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are doing it! I aspire to post a blog such as this with in the next year. I will have to scour your blog to see what you have been doing to find the opportunities that led you to such wonderful writing gigs!
Enjoy every moment, you know this time will be a distance memory all too fast. Great Job and Way to Go!!!!!!
Thanks so much for your enthusiastic response to my news!
If you’d like a bit of advice, I can tell you that in my case many of these opportunities were a direct result of networking that I did at the BlogHer conference. There’s a reason why this is called “social” media!
Good luck to you!
So thrilled for you, Marci! It’s definitely been a banner year, and you’ve worked hard for it.
That’s so kind of you, Karen! Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. Another added value to all the hard work has been connecting with bloggers like you and Wendy and the whole GenFab coterie. Glad to have e-met you this year and hope we can meet IRL at some point.
