Does This Mean I'm Famous? Blue Ribbon

I'm sorry I don't have a recipe for you today, but I have some exciting news to share.

And I am so glad to share it with all of you.

My blog community is one of the best adventures I have taken throughout my life. I appreciate each and every one of you.

I was contacted by a fellow blogger today (a local for me) Marsha Baker at The Better Baker blog about seeing an article in our local newspaper about me. The article was a short piece about me winning a blue ribbon for my pumpkin cookie recipe through Just a Pinch Web site.

A very nice article I do have to say.

As I was reading this article, a whole bunch of feelings and thoughts came rushing at me all at the same time.

For about 5 minutes I feel the attributes of fame....Does this mean I'm famous?

I also imagine thousands of people reading this article and saying my name (the feeling of being well known, all eyes are on me).

I have never had an article in the newspaper written about me before. I also feel the butterfly affect in my stomach....(just over a tiny ad in the paper)

I am also picturing goals and destinations. Could this be the start of a tiny cookie shop? (A'lil Country Sugar, Bakery/Cafe)

Will people come knocking on my door for pumpkin cookies? (not now idiot, you made the recipe public)

I also had to call my most favorite person in the world (my mother) and tell her about the news. Yes, I have bragging rights with my mother....

It is just amazing what can happen when someone places all their time and effort into something they love to do. I have goals set concerning my blog and Facebook Fan-page.

Goals are the one thing that keeps people motivated. Set yourself some goals and see where you end up. I guarantee you will be impressed, satisfied, amazed, and happy. Is there any better feelings in the world?

Thank You to all that support me and add (comments) to my interesting and "I am an achiever" travels.

  1. Hi Angie - I just want to say you ARE famous now =)...and this is the first step on an exciting journey for you! Thanks a million for stopping by my signing today - it was wonderful to meet you - and your handsome son. I would love to get together with you one the new year, when things slow down some. I hope you looked up the site we talked about today...I think it will answer many questions for you. Enjoyed your lovely long email too. We'll be in touch...

  2. It's not everyday that someone local is found with their OWN cookbook...What a great accomplishment. I don't have near 300 recipes, but I am faithfully working on it. Thank you for the advice, and can't wait to do lunch or something.

  3. One thing your blog has that many don't is HUMOR! I find myself laughing outloud to some of your "blog antics" Love it Angie

  4. Thanks Angie!! Laughter is good medicine....


I look forward to and appreciate any comments.
Thank you for stopping by.
