I am Miss Mink

Last night, I got some amazing news.  Probably the biggest news I've gotten as a blogger in recent years...and you all know this year has been pretty eventful.  I was told that I am joining The Wedding Bee.

If you haven't been planning a wedding, you might not know about "The Bee."  Wedding Bee is a group blog that updates constantly throughout the day with posts from about 20 women who are at different stages in their wedding planning process.  The site also has a wildly popular message board, classifieds area, and galleries.  On average, The Bee gets about 14 million page views per month.  Last June, they had 1.4 absolute unique visitors. 

When I got the word that I was joining the blogging ranks at The Bee, I was stunned.  I assumed I was a bit too old to be interesting to the average bride and that having Bees in Maryland and Richmond would prompt the editors to want someone who would bring more geographic diversity.  I was wrong.


So, I'm a Bee!  All of the Bees blog under special names and avatars that change by "generation."  This generation is "Woodland Creatures" and I was given a few choices from which to pick my identity.  After being momentarily attracted to the opossum (because there is a Phish song called Possom and we love Phish), I decided that the mink was more my style.


So, my wedding planning is about to get a much wider audience.  I'll continue here, as usual, but there will be some other people chiming in over on my posts over on The Bee.
