Week #14: Almost famous

“As a rock star, I have two instincts, I want to have fun, and I want to change the world. I have a chance to do both.” – Bono

I think I know why my coworkers think I’m crazy. I’ve lived by myself too long (even when I had roommates) & my head runs a constant stream of commentary, jokes & theat-ah. I’ve always appreciated my own sense of humor immensely & it’s difficult for me to keep the hilarity inside, so I often break out in giggles & nonsensical comments. Which apparently is crazy. I’m blessed to work in an environment where crazy is accepted.

Working with SUSIE Magazine, the fun comes along with something that really matters. We get to affect the lives of thousands of teen girls throughout the world. I love it, but I never thought it would make me famous. About a month ago, SUSIE entered Walmart’s Get on the Shelf contest. One among 4,000 entrants all trying to get sold in Walmart, it felt like a shot in the dark. But with the support of our awesome readers & several RTs from famous people (TobyMac RT’d us?!?!), we ended up in the top 10 to go on to the second round.

The next thing you know we’re making a video for Walmart to distribute nationally & a reporter from the Kansas City Star is dropping in to interview us. I have never had the potential* to be this famous. What a new thing (& I basically had nothing to do with it)! Don’t worry, I won’t let it go to my head!

* Help me be even more potentially famous—vote in the Final round April 11-23 at http://www.getontheshelf.com/!

  1. Oh glad you aren’t letting the stff go to your head and see the potential for good for Susie readers. It’s obvious they care about the magazine too. Regarding the picture, do you think a manicure would add a touch of polish?
