Over The Moon

Blog of Note! Blog of Note! BLOG OF NOTE!

The response has been unfathomable. I’d dreamt last night that I was riding a human wave at a rave concert (not that I’ve ever done that)…only the people holding me up had little, square, avatar-heads…and no arms. I would’ve been frightened if everyone wasn’t smiling.

For anyone interested, I’m a freelance writer…published, but local stuff. Not that I don’t enjoy interviewing people about knitting, or how efficiently to row across the Hudson River. I’m always looking for writing work…(there’s never enough when you freelance), so if you want to talk, have your email call my email. They’ll do lunch and we’ll talk projects! I’m your gal.

For all who’ve commented, followed or both…I thank you. As Grandma used to say, “I’m over the moon!”

"over the moon". I love that!

Basking in your glory...

Kathryn said...

Chrissy: Thank you, sweetie. I love that expression...it's like pure bliss, right? Ride da wave!

JD at I Do Things said...

Aw! Your dream sounds both awesome and scary. Little, square heads -- even when smiling . . . brrrr. But who cares! You ARE riding a wave of love and acknowledgment and you SHOULD be over the moon.

Kathryn,
Hey, many moons ago I was a "little surfer girl, now I am an old lady who lives in the West Ward was assaulted by her landlord 12& Ferry, across the Street from a park That once upon a time I wrote the grant for. NOW I AM ORGANIZING a rally against Slummlords Waana Ride???

Kathryn said...

JD: Thanks again, doll. Yeah, little, square, smiling heads...at least they weren't chanting or anything....THAT would've been awkward.
Sandra Walters Weiss:Um. Can I get back to you on that? Heavy stuff...

Jan said...

I love that you're so excited to be selected as a blog of note.
Would you believe that when this happens some bloggers don't even react?
Genuinely did want to leave this comment (not just here to get clicked on)!
Checking out your sidebar links.
Congratulations !

Windtraveler said...

I have to be honest - I'm not usually a fan of a lot of most "blogs of note" (but I do always check them out) - and I like yours...a lot (this is the first one I've commented on)! Perhaps its part due to a shared love of Marlborough New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs!! Congratulations!

Kathryn said...

Jan: Thank you so much for the kind words! How could someone not be grateful for such an amazing opportunity? That mystifies me. I've blogged for 18 months and only dreamed of being seen by so many! Thanks for commenting and checking out my blogbuds-I'll be by to visit soon...promise.
Windtraveler: You are so sweet! I'm honored to be the first you've commented on...and hopefully it won't be the last! OK-you love SB's...like my Cloudy? Then, we're practically RELATED! I hope you'll follow & visit again soon. I'll be sure to reciprocate.

Gretchen said...

Congratulations. Love your blog, you are great writer!

Kathryn said...

Gretchen: Thank you! Your kind words make my day...and all those months with "0" comments worth the wait. I'm tenacious, I'll say that. I hope you'll visit again. I'll stop by and say "hey".

Spot said...

Congrats again Kathryn. I did read your blog because it was a BoN...but I follow very few of those because sometimes you just look at them and go Why?? Why them?! But you deserve yours! And the blogs in your sidebar. My gosh, JD had my husband and I rolling!!! Is there a way to "follow" them since they aren't on Blogger?

Enjoy the view from "over the moon"!

♥Spot

Stacie's Madness said...

congrats!

Kathryn said...

Hey Spot! You've made my day! Thanks so very much! (And I totally agree...something I wonder, "What are they thinking?")
I follow JD thru my dashboard on blogger. The main tab (I believe) has a button at the bottom where you can add/manage blogs to flw. It'll ask for her addy (http://idothings.info) and you'll see all her posts. Drop me an email if you have a prob-we'll get it done. "Enjoy your view from over the moon"...LOVE THAT. I hope you'll flw & comment again. I'll stop by your place & say hello soon!
Stacie's Madness: Thanks! Stay! Read! Cup of coffee? Wine? Martini?? (too early?)

~:C:~ said...

Thanks! : ) And my little head had already decided to follow, so you didn't even have to ask. lol

Glad his royal cuteness, Metronome, is just fine.

Kathryn said...

~:C:~ How sweet are you? I'm most appreciative. I'm determined to stay parked in front of my site for as long as this incredible ride lasts, but I'm looking forward to visiting your side of Blogville.
Metronome says....actually not a thing. Unless snoring is speaking...
Thanks again!

Mark Price said...

Youre funny. I am really new to this blogging thing so I will be following your blog to see how it should be done. Please visit my blog and tell me what I am doing wrong. No really!

Kathryn said...

Mark Price: Oh, pul-ease....like I'm an expert. HOWEVER, you were kind enough to comment, so you're already getting it right. Next would be putting your cute kitty's avatar on my flwgrs list for all to see.
Good boy.
I promise I'll check you out-I'm parked on "comment alert"-determined to see this wonderful ride through. I'll stop in, tho...definitely when all settles.

Ron said...

Hello my Blog of Note Friend!

Kathryn said...

Hey Ron! Hey, it's not over yet, bay-bee....till they post a new one (don't! don't!), I'm the blog-du-jour. How great is that? So sweet of you to check in. Restless night-cudn't sleep! I hope you're seeing some this wonderful traffic-ppl say they're checking blogbuds. xo ♥
Stephen Leppan: Wow...thank you! You are eloquent. I'm honored you'll flw me and I shall drop by and pay my respects as soon as I'm able. Thanks again for the kind words.

I just wanted to drop by and give you a big old Ozarks farm chicks CONGRATULATIONS on blog of note. Stand up and take your well deserved bow! I truly enjoyed my read and your style of writing.

Enjoy your fame and fortune and have a wonderfully blessed day!!!

Insanity said...

Ok...I'll admit...I was bored and decided to actually check out the Blog of Note today. Most of the BoN are rather boring IMO but this one made me chuckle. Congrats on getting the BoN label. You definitely deserve it. (:

Alicia said...

Hi Kathryn,
I subscribed yesterday and then today I received your email about Blog of Note and your referrals to some of your blogging buddies and I've fallen madly in love with your writing and Ron's. I may have to quit my job so I can have time to follow you guys!

Congrats and you are hilarious!

Kathryn said...

Snarf: (Takes deep breath)"SQUAB!"
Hi Nezzy! Thanks so much for the wonderful shout-out! I'm loving every minute of it...I hope you'll stop in again and visit. I'll be sure to stop in and say "hey" to you.
Insanity: Your ID name speaks to me on SO many levels. I'm glad you were bored. Well, not glad/glad...you know what I mean. I'm equally glad I could make you chuckle. Now. Can I make you driiiink?? Thanks for commenting-I'll visit soon.
Alicia: Thank you so much! Isn't Ron the best? He's gonna get tired of all my gushing...but I just looove him. He makes me smile...right? I'm so glad you're here, blogbud! I'll visit you soon, promise.

Leah Rubin said...

Well, you certainly deserved it, and such newbies as myself can only hope that it one day happens to us! Enjoy!

Kathryn said...

Leah: Hey, you! Thanks for commenting...this is really unbelievable. What a thrilling experience this has been! And hey...it took me 18 months of blogging to hit the prize...you've got a great blog! You'll get there, for sure.

JP said...

One of my grandfather's favorite sayings was "It's after noon somewhere..." right before he took a drink at 10am. So no it's not too early for a martini (that and it's 5pm now).

BTW... check on Stacie's blog. Trust me, she's a hoot and a half.

Kathryn said...

JP: I'm a gal of my word. I'll be spending the next week visiting everyone who was kind enough to comment and/or follow...I'm gonna rack up a lot of travel miles!
Oh, look! It's after FIVE!

Erin@TheLocalsLoveIt said...

I've heard women say that about given birth...the whole wave thing...

Kathryn said...

Erin: Um. Yeah...only the birth-part has that excrutiating PAIN part, which thankfully was NOT part of my dream, thankyouverymuch.
Thanks for commenting!

nashashibi said...

OVER THE MOON
...i like it :)

Kathryn said...

nashashibi: What? Living, breathing, smiling avatars isn't scary enough for you? You're braver than I!
Anonymous: Thank you! It's my favorite expression-du-jour. Just say it w/an English or Scottish accent.

nashashibi said...

well ,I don't think so, reality is the most scary of all. dont you think so?

Kathryn said...

nashashibi: Yep, I agree totally.
I'd much rather think, "Man! This some bizarre dream!" than to think, "Crap! I WISH this were a dream so I could WAKE UP!"
Thanks for stopping by!
