Just a quick note to all my followers.
Wait, that sounds weird and cult-ish, and that’s not what I meant. Let me start again.
If you don’t follow me on Facebook or Twitter, then this will be news: I have been invited to be a blogger on The Huffington Post! They really liked my Frozen letter from the other day, and have published it on their site. They’ve also invited me to be a regular blogger over there, so huzzah!
The funny thing is that I originally submitted that letter to McSweeney’s, who rejected it. Rightly so. I hadn’t done proper research, and it turns out they had published a similar letter, not too long ago.
Then I submitted it to Scary Mommy, who didn’t ever respond. Sad face.
Finally, I sent it to an editor at HuffPost that I had been in contact with regarding my story about PPD, and lo and behold, it was up on their site that very day, and I had backstage access to their blog. Expect to see more of me there, in the coming weeks and months!
So thank you, universe. Thank you for the awesome reminder that when one door closes, another, improbable as it may seem, opens.
