Two days ago I mentioned I was amongst the top ten contenders being considered for the “People’s Choice Award” at this years personal finance bloggers conference. At the time of the post I didn’t stand a chance; I was at the bottom of the list. But guess freaking what!!!!!
That’s right peeps, we straight up hijacked the category and I went from 8th place to winner in a little over 24 hours.
After winning I tweeted a very sentimental message.
Seriously though. You guys are pretty awesome for taking the time out of your day to show me some love. I’d say something nice like “I’ll buy you all a round of drinks”, but that would be a lie because a) I am probably never going to meet you AND b) even if we did meet, I’m too cheap to buy you a drink.
On an unrelated note, I found out yesterday that I can give y’all details on our upcoming TV appearance. If you want to see me and Girl Ninja be interviewed on NBC you need to tune in to the Steve Harvey show (I think it’s on same channel as Ellen, just before her show) on Monday at 2pm CT. You’ll have to check your local listings though to make sure of its air time.
I’m pretty nervous to see it. We were on stage for about 35 minutes, but we know the segment is only going to last 12 min. That means they are going to cut out half of what we talked about, and as we are all aware, TV editing can make someone look awesome or like a total douche. Really hoping its more awesome and less douchey but I’ll find out when you guys do.
Anywho, thanks so much for supporting the site and making me feel important. Just when I think about hanging up the towel y’all give me a reason to want to keep writing.
Hugs not drugs,
p.s. my first thought flying in to Denver was “Meh.”
