Freshly Pressed: You always remember your first time

      1. Thanks! It was a special post of mine to my Dad for Veterans Day. I was shocked. I found it funny it even got Pressed since it was such a simple tribute.

  1. Congrats.

    Yeah, I remember when this happened to me.

    I had no idea what was going on. I was like, what the Hell? Why are all these people dumping comments on this post? Something very strange is going on. I didn’t receive any notification that I am aware of. It just happened. And I didn’t think the article they picked was all that special. The only thing different I noticed about it was that I hadn’t dropped any of expletives. So, I thought to myself, that’s the key. Don’t swear on WordPress and maybe you’ll get freshly pressed. Bwahahah!

    Sometimes I swear too much in my posts. Personally, I blame the military. I can’t help it. That’s how I think. Sure, I run a filter in daily life, but even when I’m not swearing, my internal voice is still saying WTF?

    The second time it happened, they told me about it, and I knew what was going on.

    1. I don’t want to look a gift horse in the mouth, but I really wish they’d called attention to one of my other posts, something serious that I’d put a lot of thought into. This one was basically just a rant.

      I can’t imagine having this happen without a heads up. It would be like a sudden onset of the Twilight Zone.

  2. Congrats! I just got an e-mail a couple hours ago saying they are Freshly Pressing me so I’ve been doing some research to figure out what to expect. Those twin towers make me happy!

    1. Grats! My readership went back down after the Twin Towers, naturally, but certainly not to the previous levels. Whether the continuing higher levels are due to the Freshly Pressed thing or because there’s been a lot more interest in politics recently, I couldn’t say. Again, congratulations!

... and that's my two cents
