Freshly Pegged

handmade greeting card, collage artFame!  Fortune!  Or at least a few readers!  That’s all any blogger really wants.  In our insecure, attention-starved way, all we’re really looking for is a cyber pat on the head.

WordPress, the Tyrant of my particular brand of blogging, features posts determined worthy on their FreshPressed page.  Posts there garner thousands of hits in a day.  It is the bloggy equivalent to winning the Publishers Clearing House (how I long to fall on the floor with that big check clutched to my chest like other winners!)  It’s the Holy Grail of WordPressers.

None of us in the trenches can quite figure out the criteria—content? graphics? brand of chocolate used in bribery?  We debate, and fiddle, and share recipes for success (Bobby Jo wrote about sex, Justin Bieber, and Pop Tarts with 37 tags and 42 pictures and got Fresh Pressed immediately!).  Honestly, though, I don’t think too much about it (ahem).  I’m happy to support my other blogging friends as they make the front page (grrr).

But, there is a Champion for the UnFreshly Pressed, Friend to All who toil in the Unremarkable Slop of Everyday Posts.  Lady Peg of Peg-o-leg’s Ramblings started a guest blogger series a few weeks back called THIS One Should Have Been Freshly Pressed.  Here, she shines light on all the worthies forsaken by The Man.


And I, humble scribe that I am, have been chosen.  I have been Freshly Pegged.

Please, do click on Freshly Pegged—A Mind Divided to read my “Rooster in the Road.”  Leave comments.  Sample other posts pulled from bloggy obscurity.  Join the revolution to pull the masses out from under the WordPress boot!

Vive la Peg!
