...because yesterday was as good as it can get. I was on Oprah.
Yes, that Oprah.
Wait? She doesn't have a show on anymore? Fine, you got me. I wasn't on Oprah. But my blog was on her blog, which is about as good as it gets for me.
They did a feature on easy two-ingredient baking, and my simple Baked Alaska recipe made the cut. Remember that one? So tasty.
Now, I read a lot of blogs, but Oprah's isn't one of them, but I found this because my blog blew up yesterday. Normally I get my traffic from other blogs, Facebook, and Google, so when I saw this on my traffic feed I was definitely surprised....
Anyway, if you want to contribute to my (blog's) 2 1/2 minutes of
barely noticeable content fame, check it out here.
In other news, I (okay, hubby) finally put up my Allied Medal Display in the new house. I love it! I just need to add some more medals to the mix. Right now I'm only at three (the fourth one belongs to hubby)-and they're all age group wins. I've never received a medal just for finishing, how unfair is that? Hopefully my upcoming half (Dalton Half Marathon on October 15th) and full (Chickamauga Battlefield on November 12th) will change that.
If you have a blog, where do you get most of your views from? Anywhere funny or different?
Usually nowhere exciting for me...often it's just traffic from other blogs or from when I put it up on Facebook. Oprah was definitely unusual. I also get a lot from Google when I remember to tag my posts correctly.
What do you think about medals: are they deserved just for finishing? What distance--a 5k, 10k, half, full? Do you ever pick races because of the medals?
I don't ever expect a medal for a race less than half-but when I ran a trail half marathon this Spring and didn't get a medal I was pretty disappointed, I'll admit. I haven't picked a race yet because of the medals, although Disney is tempting....
