Just Eating Rainbows And Pooping Butterflies

Every day when I sit at my desk and fire up my browser, I go through the same routine. I log on to my email; both business and personal, I check my traffic stats, I see who is on Twitter and Tweet a bit, I see if anyone wants to be my friend on Facebook, I answer comments on my blogs, and I begin to read the tons of updated blog entries in Google Reader.

But, before I begin my day as Super Mom, I click on one more bookmark. I am quickly taken to my destination; the mighty Alltop. As I scroll down the Mom Blog page, the anticipation grows. As I furiously spin the wheel on my mouse, I recognize many of the names that flash by at top speed. All of the great bloggers have already taken their rightful places, as they should.

Could I some day rub elbows with these great women? Could today be that day? I keep going; faster and faster. Down, down, down. I am finally at the bottom, I look, hoping that I have made my way onto the coveted list.

DANG.

I am not "Featured On Alltop", I am not exclaiming "How The Hell Did That Happen?", I am not one of the "Cool Kids", and there certainly won't be any "Confirmation That I Kick Ass".

Sigh.

Listen, if anyone can help a girl out and put in a good word with Mr. Kawasaki, I would be truly grateful. I know the blogosphere is a massive place and I'm just a speck on a flower, but "I Am Here! I AM HERE!"

Did you ask to be included? That's how I got on*. If I can get on you can! And if you're a speck on a flower then I'm a speck that's on the flower that's on the speck.

*I should check to see if I'm still on there. I never get any traffic from it who for all I know I'm no longer listed.

I'm not on All Top either - don't sweat it!

Annie said...

I am on there, and to tell you the truth I have no idea how!

I am only now getting back into the swing of blogging - both writing and reading others - so if I figure it out I'll pass it on!

I'm there because I sent an e-mail that said, "It'd really be super-cool if you put my blog on Alltop." And then it was there.

(P.S. I just sent an e-mail recommending you. Because you rock. I actually said that. Because you do.)

I'll put a good word in for you! I like to pretend that Guy's (we are on a first name basis)my homeboy since I partied at his house.

Who am I kidding? He really has no clue who I am but I'll still shoot him an email telling him that your blog should so be on Alltop.
