Andrew Shue Emailed Me Today and I Sat In My Closet - How Was Your Day?

I didn't mention this to you all earlier because I surely wasn't going to set myself up, but awhile ago I applied as a writer for ClubMom as one of their featured bloggers. It appears that they like the way I murder a sentence...or Andrew is aware of all those VHS tapes I spent on Melrose Place...because they chose me out of many deserving applicants.

When I received the offer today I literally read one sentence, buried my face in my hands, made Chris read the rest over my shoulder, and then promptly hid in the closet. Will this reaction concern them, do you think?

The fact that ClubMom feels I'm competent enough to represent them as a blogger is a huge compliment and I'm overwhelmed by the opportunity. I am honored. And published? Stop it.

My closet is calling me.

OMG! Andrew Shue! I used to have the biggest crush on him. Congrats to you! You are such an entertaing writer. This could open the door to much bigger things. I'm a little concerned, will you still visit the blogs of your amateur friends?

The closet! Now I know where to hide from the kids. Thanks for the tip, Lena.Way cool on the writing gig. Congrats and all that good stuff.

Congratulations! Best of luck to you!I'm curious too - will you be keeping up this blog, or will they have you working on a different blog?

Posted by: Undercover Angel | 04/18/2006 at 10:04 PM

I'm not sure on all the details yet. There is a confidentiality aspect to this right now, so as I learn more and am given the go ahead I'll share it with you.It sounds like it will be a seamless transition for my readers.Believe me, I will make sure you all know where to find me! You can count on my narcissism for that one. ;)

Posted by: Lena | 04/18/2006 at 10:09 PM

CONGRATS! You will be awesome.And if it gets to be too much and you need a change of scenery, I find my closet is a cozy hiding place as well.
