Blogging, consistently and passionately, sometimes will create opportunities for growth that you simply can't forsee. Don't ever let anyone tell you you're crazy for doing something that either a) they don't understand, or b) they aren't brave enough to do themselves. On February 9, 2013 MakesMeWannaHoller.com will be five years old. The amount of skepticism I've endured because I blog (particularly while I was looking for employment) was downright unbearable at times. By the grace of God I never gave up, kept at it and am able to share the following good news:
THIS THURSDAY, February 7, 2013, two days before my blog turns five, I'll be live on CNN Headline News as a WEEKLY contributor for a groundbreaking new daily news show covering what's currently trending and what people are talking about around parenting and marriage and quite a few other things. It's called Raising America. It launched this past Monday and has been keeping viewers tuned in on TV and Twitter (kudos to @WebAnna of their social media team).
I was shocked to silence two weeks ago when the request came. At first, I didn't even believe it was true as this wasn't something I was even trying to do (this year). When I asked one of the producers why was I being selected for the show, her answer was short and to the point: "Because you have a great blog!"
I am humbled by this and hope you will tune in at noon on Thursday, February 7. If you have cable (you will need to log on via your cable provider login) you can also watch Headline News live from your computer.
See you at noon, Eastern Standard Time.
