I'm Grinning Ear to Ear.

After much pestering on Twitter, I'm officially the BLOG of NOTE for Blogger.com today:
Tuesday, May 25.
What a fantastic day! I'm ecstatic. I have new comments and new followers, and I can't wait to check out each and every one of your blogs. :) I also celebrated by jamming on Aerosmith (I'm still doing that now) and polishing off a large bowl of chocolate fudge brownie-type ice cream. Yum.

Why am I blogging? After friends, family and coworkers continually insisted that I try it to keep up with my writing (I'm a journalism major, just finished my first year of college) I gave in.

I LOVE IT. It's so addicting. Plus, working with and talking to other bloggers is truly a rewarding experience. I love everything about this!

Here's the things you need to know about me:

I love music. Aerosmith is my lifetime obsession. On that note, I consider myself to be an obsessive girl. When I was younger, I "obsessed" over crushes, and to this day I still have obsessive behaviors (haha.) Besides Steven Tyler, my obsessions include...

Sex and the City. Twilight (I know, I know.) Magazines. Black nail polish. Chick flicks. Harry Potter. Blogging. Music. Writing about music. Power ballads. Newspapers. My boyfriend. Being the editor in chief of my college newspaper. Working at the local movie theater. Living a "straight-edge" life. Hearing stories. Telling stories. Slurpees. Classic rock. Old school country music. Shopping. Fast food. Wearing rock band t-shirts. Shopping at the Salvation Army. Walking around Wal-Mart into the early morning. Life, love and music. Writing about everything I've experienced, and getting some of it to this very blog.

Enough about me, what about you? Who are you and WHERE can I find your blog?! Let's follow eachother! :) And thank you, Blogger! I will do my day-long reign JUSTICE <3

Congrats on the blog of note thing.
Just wanted to let you know on the whole 6 degrees of separation thing. I am 1 degree removed from Steven Tyler (actually through 2 different connections). So that makes you 2 now. Not bad, huh? A blog of note and closer to your obsession.

Here's my blog (not yet of note): http://ouryearinbooks.blogspot.com

Yes, pestering on Twitter does indeed work, but only if you have the writing to back it up. From one BoN winner to another - congratulations, enjoy all of the plaudits and don't stop writing.

I'm really late on noticing blogs of note, but hello! Lucky you. :)

You sound just like me five years ago. I am from the small towns/cornfields (MN), I went to school wanting to be a writer, I love music...

I didn't stay a writing major or a cornfielder, but I still love music and I am happy nonetheless! :) You can read about/see my life at http://plainvanillamemoirs.blogspot.com

Have a lovely weekend!
