On the path to dreams

You may recall a few days ago I wrote this here:

'...it is my dream for a reputable media or communications company to contact me through this blog and ask me to write for them on a regular, paid basis, a bit like Carrie Bradshaw, in the inner suburbs of the city but without the men or the Manalos (Hello - is anyone out there??!!)'.

I imagine myself looking exactly like this, complete with the expression of enlightenment, but my MacBook is more modern:


I submitted a few of my blog entries to a very reputable organisation, and I was contacted today by a staff member within.

He read my submissions and also this blog, and has chosen an article that he thinks is suitable to be edited slightly and published on the organisation's website! It will be me telling my own story.




I am very excited as it's one step closer to my dream!

I'm not going to preempt anything by writing much more about this exciting opportunity, but I'll keep you updated as things progress.

This blog is making things happen!
