We're Famous!

Work was busy today, especially after taking a Summer Friday last week, so I didn't have time to check my Working Girl e-mail. It wasn't until I commuted home and ate my leftovers from Q'doba (I love my chips and guac) that I checked my Working Girl Gmail account. 

Typically, my inbox has a few e-mails, notifying me of comments from our lovely and loyal readers. Today, there were over 25 comments, not to mention e-mails from new readers telling us how much they liked our blog (thank you!) and asking who designed it (Delicious Design Studio). WG2 and I love getting comments and e-mails but 25 in one day. Phew. We were blown away. So as I hungrily consumed my guac I kept thinking, "Where are all these readers coming from? Are we on a new blog roll?"

Finally, one of your comments gave me the answer. Rowena from Rubber Slippers In Italy pointed out that Working Girl is Blogger's most recent Blog of Note. As someone who often checks out the Blogs of Note, all I have to say is: How effing cool is that?!

When we started this blog, WG2 and I wanted place to write what we were going through as new Working Girls, a place where other Working Girls could commiserate, live through our experiences, and maybe even garner some knowledge. As cheesy as this sounds, since we started blogging in January we've felt like we have little more purpose and meaning in our lives. Working 9-5 (and by 5 I mean 6:30) pays the bills, but writing this blog gives us a creative outlet and just makes us feel good. But it's not just the writing that makes us feel good, it's the comments and the stories you all share with us.

So, thank you readers for making us feel loved and thank you to Blogger for making us feel like rock stars. We feel pretty damn good. I can only hope that my bosses and coworkers are not Blogger users because if they find this, I may not have a job to blog about.

Not being a member of workaday society, 'tis certainly not fit for me to consort with the likes of you, and this little note shall be the last you are likely to hear from me. Still, a Lady of my stature finds something quaint in your position, and the proud countenance you carry as you go about your common duties.

Frequent Traveler said...

Great Advice! hmmm... someone should start a workin boy's blogg...

Emily said...

How exciting to be a blog of note!
Just thought, as another working girl, I could put in a lead for NuSkin. http://www.ipodiums.biz/Nu-Skin-Enterprises.html
I have been selling their products for 12 years, and I love it! This is the best way to get started if anyone is interested.

Great blog, girls! What an honour to be a Blog of Note (which is how I found your blog) - you deserve it - Working Girl is an informative and entertaining blog. :0)

Lux said...

You guys are too cute! You remind me of my coworker and I, we blog seperately but we may be inspired. I do love the design too. Keep up the good work! (Tell your boss it's free therapy and completley necessary to avoid breakdowns and speed productivity. They'll love that.)

Being Brazen said...

Wow, thats really cool. Well done!!
