"TOP OF THE WORLD MA"

STOP THE PRESSES!

HOLD THE PHONE!

PUT ON THE BRAKES!


A milestone

has been reached

today

for this little old blogger.

It's almost like winning an award

BUT BETTER

~

Not long

after my daughter

suggested I start a blog

some months ago

I came upon this very

interesting

and talent laden blogger.

~

I've been a fan ever since.

~

I

noticed instantly

that I was not the only fan she had.

~

For instance,

she could

for example

but would never

post a mundane thought like

“I'M UNDER THE WEATHER TODAY”

within 28 minutes

47 people would leave comments

all telling her they were sorry she felt bad

38 people would suggest remedy's to make her feel better

AND

3 people would actually drive to her house with hot chicken soup.

~

Let me be clear.

This lady has BLOGGER PULL!

I noticed from the start her “blogs I follow”

list was longer than Obama's wish list.

~

Her list

is so long

it had to be

broken up into

three or four lists.

I'm serious

~

I now

had a goal.

I WANT ON THAT LIST.

~

For weeks

I scrolled her blogs list

to no avail.

~

weeks

turned into months

I had given up all hope

~

disappointment

turned to

despair

~

but

two days ago

I officially arrived

to the world of blogging.

~

Scrolling

down Beth's

be yourself

blog

there it was

on her list

in nice clear crisp letters

MARK

~

yee-esss!!


Now I know

what they mean when

the Oscar nominees say

“It's great just to be nominated.”

~

oh yeah


My new style with the pyramid shaped paragraphs and all ~~~ ~~ ~ ~~ this, is to pay homage to the

be yourself blog.

Check

it out to

see what I mean.

Congrats, Mark! You deserve it. It is a wonderful feeling to see your name in lights on another blog and know that your readership is growing!

You may not have been on the blog list but she did a feature on you! That's how I found you. Isn't she one the most amazing souls you've ever 'met'? Glad she had us view yours too.

Oh Mark you made me smile. I do love Beth's blog and she became very very very special to me too. She is a super duper artist when it comes to taking pictures and putting words to acomplish it all.

Also she sends out these wonderful giveaways (wich I won one time and I still have her picture on my wall) and other goodies to my home. So she deserves to be pampered big time.

Just as you deserve to be on her list. Congrats you silly one.
Enjoy it, like we all do.

Sweet hugs my friend. Dagmar
