Being Freshly Pressed on WordPress

I would read the posts on the WordPress homepage and wonder how those people got in there. Some type of expensive advertisement was my best guess, but it turns out that . . . well, actually I’m not sure yet. I received an email this morning from Erica, WordPress Wrangler, telling me that my post titled “Forgetting someone’s name” was promoted to Freshly Pressed and that’s about all I know about it.

It is a good feeling to know that people from all over the place enjoy reading about the awkward moments that get posted on this WordPress site. Every comment I’ve read today has come from very nice people, and have been a pleasure to read.

Without anything else to say, let us continue with the list.

Thank you very much for reading!


  1. It was good to read your thoughts on the names thing. I often wonder if I’m having senior moments myself and I use exactly the methods you described to cover myself. Let’s hope you make the pressed again!
