OK, how cool is this?
I just Googled "I am my mother. And..."
and there at the top of the page was the Scary Mommy link for my guest post!
For someone like me who's very much small potatoes in bloggy world, this was, needless to say, head-swelling.
See, usually, I get about (mumble-mumble -- a figure in the hundreds) page views per day.
Jill Smokler, aka Scary Mommy, gets a million and a half per freakin' month. I said million. As in million. Which means untold thousands tune in on a daily basis.
And in this day of "sharing" and forwarding and what-not, that figure becomes quie a bit larger.
For my post, I have no idea how many people viewed it, but close to 1700 shared it. And if you figure each of those people shared it to their closest 100 FB friends or Tweeps, that means that my piece was potentially seen by
And if only 10% of THOSE people shared it, that means
something like a cajillion people saw it.
I am poised for world domination, if my calculations are correct, by noon on Weds.
Heady stuff for a SAHM/farmgirl.
Pretty soon I can quit my dayjob of shoveling manure and picking up hairballs and making grilled cheese sandwiches.
Those things probably ought not be in a sentence together.
But fear not. Just like the lottery-winning janitors, I shall continue to hang out here and regale you with tales of buckets of rats and road trips to hell from time to time. That's just how I roll.
