just a little fish


in the giddy first hours after learning that little old MPC had become tuesday's Blog of Note, i was bouncing off the walls. i had to go sit and behave like a grown parent at a parents' meeting at sabin's school, but i kept sneaking checks of my mail on my iPhone. i couldn't help it. call me shallow, but i just think it's so cool!  and my mind was definitely not on all those things i had vowed to take up at the meeting, so i actually let them slide. which was probably for the best anyway, so it's yet another thing for which to thank the good folks at blogger.

i don't know what it really means or if it means anything at all in the Grand Scheme, but i am totally, utterly delighted. just to have a few minutes of standing out in that giant bloggy blogosphere, where i normally swim as a little bitty fish in a gigantic ocean simply feels fantastic. i've seen several bloggers that i regularly read become BoN--willow, tangobaby--and i'll admit i totally had BoN envy.

i wondered what one had to do to achieve it. i had actually written "become BoN" in my list of things to do before i turn thirty-thirteen, even tho' i had no idea how to go about it. the mysteries of BoN remain...well...mysteries, as i have no idea how my blog was chosen. i found it out when my google alerts sent me the news that there was a new link to MPC and that it was the BoN page! i can only say (again and again ad nauseam) that it's wonderful.

a very big thank you to the gods of google. and thanks as well for the great weather you've sent to us of late here in denmark, since i know you're also controlling the weather. :-)

a big hello to all of the new people stopping by, please do look around, i don't always rant. ok, well, i do pretty often, but there's sometimes something funny as well.

maybe NOW martha will call.

Eclectic and charming, not just your kitchen - I came across your blog because it sounded similar to mine on the BON and I am glad I did. Hope you can check out my corner sometime and ... that cushion you made for your mom, post pictures soon please :)

Co-oo-ool! Well done, you master of the blogosphere!

Weather control. Have you heard of or read of HAARP? It scares me. People scare me. It's like giving a 2 year old a gun and a bulletproof vest and hoping for the best. {shiver}

I was thinking of all the BoNs I've come across lately and I believe the two things that they all have in common are daily posts and coherent intelligence. You fit the bill! : ) Congrats again!

Karen said...

Congratulations! Well deserved honor, I'd say. I love to read here :)

Just Jules said...

That is by far my favorite mer-rock yet. Probably because red is my favorite color.

Your turn to pass on the green eyed monster by the way... I will hold it dear as I do my envy for your BoN ;)

Your loyal followers always knew you had it - shine girl shine <3

~C said...

Congrats, Julochka! I have been enjoying MPC for a while (via Tangobaby), tho admittedly lurked for a bit at first. I came out of the shadows trying to be lucky follower #50 and now find myself one of many, many more. Lucky us!

Nic said...

I just came across your blog from the Blogs of Note page. Well done! I'd love to be a BoN...maybe one day my time will come! I'm gonna spend some time looking around your blog now :)

Suecae Sounds said...

Who is beside the BoN? Illuminati. They really know who to pick when it comes down to the nitty gritty. They rule the world after all. ;)

The Clever Pup said...

Congratulations, Julie.
Hard work and lots of entries help. Maybe one day the roulette ball will land on my number. Maybe if I scream REALLY loudly like LOLA. Eiiiie!

Lifemaster said...

Great to hear how things are in Denmark in your simple intimate way. It makes the world feel somehow smaller and yet vast..

Congrats on BoN. I like the way you handled it (and I like thirty thirteen. That's the sort of number that my daughter counts to!)
