Just found this email from the WordPress folks in my inbox:
Congrats! We’ve picked your post ( https://piedtype.com/2012/08/11/grandma-gets-a-smartphone/ ) to appear on Freshly Pressed on the WordPress home page.
We really enjoyed your take on this smartphone buying experience — a mix of practical information but also some lightheartedness and humor, and we know the rest of the WordPress community will too. Your post will appear on the site in the next day or two, so get ready to welcome your new readers.
Once your post goes live, shout it from the rooftops! Tell your family, friends, and readers to check out the WordPress home page, and share the good news with your social networks (we’ll do the same).
This is guaranteed to increase my lurking on Freshly Pressed. I want a screenshot while it’s there! Hope some of my readers will also grab screenshots to back me up in case I miss it.
