A. I am a mormon
B. It is a newspaper, sent to other mormons.
C. They publish stuff other mormons read.
D. It is a niche I am really interested in.
So I think I sent two. And then......nothing. I was not shocked but in my dream of dreams I thought they would read my totally engaging stuff and knock down my door. Did. Not. Happen.
So I forgot about it, much how I forget about my other squashed dreams. (you know, world peace. Just a morning a peace would be nice.)
Last week an old friend wrote on my facebook page (one of those "friends" I haven't seen since the day I graduated from high school), and he asked if that was my article on mormontimes.com. It did not even occur to me that it might be because I had not heard from them.
So I told him no.
He sent me the link but I didn't look at it.
Fast forward two days. I get an email from an editor at mormontimes.com. They published my article. Not in the paper. But online. What the?!?!?!?!
So they published it online in the Reader Voices section. Yea baby. I have a voice.
This same article was once a blog post many months ago when my dad was the only one that read my blog. So now that I am famous, reading it will cost you one click...Just Another Manic Sunday.
So it did not make it to the printed page. But everyone knows print is dead anyway.
Long live my virtual fame.
