I started this personal blog a little more than a month ago primarily for fun, since I write business-related articles at work all day. Figured that deciding what to write on a blog post every day and gathering graphics to go along with it would give me something entertaining to think about and do.
Today (Mon., June 16) I got home from a rather mundane day at work and checked my email to find a message from an editor at BlogHer that read:
“I’ll be featuring your post, http://www.blogher.com/confessions-adult-learning-swim, as a featured member post in the Work/Life and Health topics and on the homepage of BlogHer.com today.

My blog post about learning to swim as an adult has been front and center on the home page of BlogHer (an extremely well-known blog site for women bloggers) as a featured post all day today! Is that cool or what?!
