A watched pot never boils...

You've heard it before. Probably from your grandmother or your mama. You'll hear it again -- on repeat in your own head.

A watched pot never boils.

A watched pot never boils.

A watched pot never boils.

Blog opportunities never happen when you're waiting.


Yes it's true. It doesn't have the same ring as 'A watched pot never boils' but it is completely true. That site you wish would feature your project. That group of girls that you would REALLY like to be a part of. That bloggy club that would catapult you to millions of readers? Those things never happen when you want them to.

Sometimes they happen down the road and you are over it. You've moved on and your time is more valuable now. You are kind of shocked that you don't care, but at this point, you really don't.

The other response? YIPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! You're sitting in your pjs, early in the morning with a steaming cup of joe and DING -- your email box pops open. ...and there is an email out of nowhere. An email asking you if you would like to contribute to such and such series on such and such blog. You had written it off. you figured it just never would happen. Ah well. ...but then there it is. An invitation to write. For them. Wow. ummmmmmYES.

I never thought the day would come, but I am oh so happy that it is here.

Please take a few moments today and check out my very first, long anticipated, very very exciting premiere on I Heart Faces.
