Look , ma! Look, Ava and Yiani (my kids)! Look, YOU! Yo, yo, yo… I’m on CNN. Someone pinch my Greek ass! Is this a dream? Um, no. CNN (yes, friggin’ CNN!) reached out to tape a segment on the power of blogging on the retail realm and they asked ME (yes, me!) to create the segment.
**INSERT DRAMATIC SIGH OF DISBELIEF HERE**
For once in my life, I’m nonplussed. Confounded! Thank you all for reading my blog and believing in me. Cheesy but true, this is a dream come true.
It’s also proof that right now there is unbelievable might in blogging and social media. We’re accessible. We’re real. We relate to the everyday woman/man. We’re a marketing tour de force. It’s true.
And for those of you still questioning if blogging/influencing is a “real job,” well, I hereby rest my case.
I’m thrilled to be a part of the wild ride. I’m also unequivocally (side note because I’m ADD: I feel like “unequivocally” is the most-used word in my daily lexicon — therefore my tombstone should read: “Unequivocally Dead”) flattered and humbled to be the lucky blogger (goooooo Miami!) chosen for this special piece — there are so many talents in this field and I’m just one among gazillions. I feel like the Little Blogger That Could.
Above all, this blog is a testament to the fact that when you embrace your inner weirdness, good things happen.
A big gracias each and every wonderful human being that collaborated with me on this special segment — I’m specifically talking to CNN’s Tomeka Jones & Mariana Hoysa, Capretto’s Jason Salstein, and the entire RAC team.
