If I was Freshly Pressed…

The first thing I do in the morning before I start my day is log into WordPress and see who made it Freshly Pressed.  It’s quite a humbling experience I’ve read.  Can you imagine ~ The Best of 419,999 bloggers, 866,676 new posts, 1.446.513 comments, & 188,258,107 words posted on WordPress.com ~ & One of your blogs is chosen to be Freshly Pressed? What would be your reaction?

The truth is I’ve never given being freshly pressed much thought until now.  You see, being FP gives you a sense of accomplishment and gets you thinking, WOW, someone is actually reading my blogs.  I didn’t start blogging to gain a million followers, I started this blog to get me in the habit of writing everyday.  My goal is to write a book so writing a blog made perfect sense. I said “Why not!?”  I think it’s been six months since I published my first one.  I was a little hesitant at first but once I pressed that little blue button, it felt fantastic.

So, if I was Freshly Pressed I think I would …   

  1. Start screaming. {People would think I was crazy}
  2. Jump up and down. {all while screaming}
  3. Call everyone I know. {be warned people..}
  4. Shed a tear or two. {happy tears}
  5. Be humbled.
  6. Be inspired to babble some more.

Even If I never get freshly pressed I don’t care, I’m proud of myself for coming this far.  I’m already accomplished!

Peace & Love xox

  1. Hey so not trying to brag at all but I was lucky enough to get Freshly Pressed last week, and I pretty much did everything on your list, except scream and cry. It was crazy and you definitely nailed it, it was inspiring more than anything. It’s definitely a game changer and makes you think about what you’re doing and why. Whenever I read a good blog, such as this one, I hope that the author gets Freshly Pressed because it is such an amazing experience and I want the people I read to experience it the same way I did.

    As far as how to get FP, I was actually reading on the WordPress forum about it. Be unique, be creative, and be well written. You do that enough and they’ll find you. Best of luck!
