My CNN Segment!

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.


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.

    This. Is. Awesome! Congratulations! This is sooo well-deserved. You are the Mama Blogger here in Miami! This is also great because it solidifies blogging as a REAL job. Most people in older generations still think this is all made up. Go Wordy Girl!

    So funny you said “Little Blogger That Could” cuz I always call Miami the “Little City That Could”. Congrats, well deserved Wordy Girl. I’m commenting before I watch but I already know this is gonna be good. We need to hang in the neighborhood btw.
