Oh My Giddy Aunt!

I received an e-mail saying "Congratulations!!! Our editors have selected your newsfeed to be featured in one of our Top 10 Sources sites. You can view the site that features your feeds by clicking here.

Have I been spammed or what? Can any one of my 20 avid readers throw any light on this?

I do not know what to make of it. Amazingly, for once, I am speechless.

Oh, now you're being modest: 20 readers, my butt. Gee, I hope you won't get so big you stop emailing me/us because I find that very fun.

Congrats! That's quite an honor and you are in most excellent company.

Now that you're famous I hope you won't forget us little people who helped you get there. LOL

Let's have a toast...someone find the booze. Will you get paid millions??

Wow - So you still seem a little in shock. I am not sure if I would be proud or nervous about this kind of notoriety. I hope it is positive for you. It doesn't seem so much like spam, though.

The site sure seems real enough!

I think this is pretty fabulous! Good for you!

Looks great! You are helping a lot of women with your blog.....be proud of yourself!

I got the same thing. I'm also a little taken aback - I don't know quite how I feel about it. It's interesting, because I would never in a million years put myself in the same category as Julie or Ova Girl... yikes! It's flattering, yet at the same time unnerving. I don't know that I want to be quite that public!

It's possible this could be tied to an advertising campaign, as in you're going to soon be receiving an 'invitation' to advertise on your blog, etc. There's a number of RSS feed companies springing up, and the business model is, of course, all about the online advertising... but it could just be an informational source. Who knows.

Either way, can I like, touch you or have a few hair strands, cuz like, your famous now, you know?... :)

So, do we need to curtsy, now that you're famous??

I'm curious, did they ask or just put you there??

 
At 12:57 AM, Blogger Beagle said...

Now that you're famous, do we all need to curtsy?

I'm curious, did they ask your permission or just put you on the site?

Oh geez . . . this is why I am NOT a famous blogger . . . sorry for the duplicate. I thought it got lost in space the first time!

There is something slightly wierd about this, but it's not a horrible site so I would glory in it.

The thing I find slightly uncomfortable is that all their preamble is about infertility, yet 8/10 of the blogs they chose are currently pregnancy after infertility blogs, and I would guess that when they chose julia's she was still pregnant, which would make you the only choice who wasn't yet. Not sure of the logic there, but if I was you I'd take it as a great sign that you are soon destined to be among the pregnant.

Congratulations. Very impressive.

 
At 5:34 PM, Blogger N said...

Wow. Not sure what to think of it...but WOW...wow...nice. It doesn't seem to be spam though either...wow...

Why have you been chosen? What do you reckon?

 
At 8:01 PM, Blogger Fertility Faux Pas said...

Looks legit to me! Plus, you are in great company on that list. Congrats on becoming famous!

 
At 12:22 AM, Blogger Ornery said...

Congratulations!! Can I get your autograph?

 
At 1:13 AM, Anonymous Manuela said...

Well, well... aren't YOU special!!!

Don't forget the little people.

I very much like Thalia's logic - I think she's on to something!

 
At 2:57 PM, Blogger Vacant Uterus said...

I think Thalia nailed it!

Whether the site is legit or not, it seems harmless. Will you still pop by my blog every once in a while, now that you're so popular?

Hey, make that 21 readers !

Anyhow, you're about to have many,many more ! Congrats.
