(The short version: Please head over to Peg-O-Leg’s Ramblings for today’s actual piece)
Ah, Freshly Pressed. Is there any title, any endowment, more electric around these parts? And the lengths we’ll go to earn the favor of our beloved WordPress overlords run a pretty wide gamut. There’s the rational (250-450 words, topical, clever title) to the not so rational (“Okay, that time I got featured, I ate cereal with half & half because I was out of milk; and accidentally hit ‘reply all’ on that email; and before I checked my stats I said aloud ‘you know, I don’t even care if I get freshly pressed anymore.’ So… whew, I’m getting fat from all this half & half…”).
That’s a lie, but how funny would that be?
No, Peg, over at Peg-O-Leg’s Ramblings has started up “Freshly Pegged” featuring bloggers re-publishing that post – that one that you can’t BELIEVE wasn’t freshly pressed. I mean, surely there was a fire drill at the company and so they missed it, because come ON.
This week she’s graciously reposting one of mine that I particularly liked, and I hope you will, too. And maybe you tell your co-workers about it. Especially if you happen to work for a blogging company. Maybe one that rhymes with “Bird Dress.”
Anyway, please head to Peg’s to read “And If There’s Anything I’ve Forgotten, I Apologize For That, Too. And For Forgetting To Apologize. Sorry.”
