Pour some blogger on me...

Blogs are like a bomb, baby come and get it on.

Happy Monday BlogWorld. And this Monday is a great one. Let's have a cocktail turned 8 months old last week which is celebratory on its own accord. But we have had a big couple of days around here for additional reasons. So we are pulling out our heels and hangbags to celebrate and have a proper toast.There is no way for me to truly demonstrate my gratitude to my readers.
Or to demonstrate my gratitude for even being able to say "my readers". It is an overwhelming feeling of awesome and excitement to be on the blog road with you. And I am love love loving the ride.

Saturday, Let's have a cocktail welcomed its 30,000th visitor. And I have you to thank.

And a month or so ago one of my previous posts caught the attention of an editor from Woman's World Magazine. I received a wonderful email asking if I would be willing to be interviewed about the post. I was honored. Are you kidding me ? I couldn't say OF COURSE any quicker. The October 12 issue which includes my tiny interview came out this weekend. Page 41 in the You deserve the best column. My heart filled with a number of emotions seeing my blog name in big girl print. In a major weekly magazine. FILLED I tell you.

And in separate serendipitous moment, I have been invited to be an ongoing contributor to Woman's World Magazine's blog.

So you see, I feel like celebrating. And I want to celebrate with you. Thank you so much for your support, your comments, your emails, and your willingness to not only have a cocktail with me, but to join me in the ride.

I feel like you are the most interesting and diverse group of people I have ever hosted at a cocktail party. And from all corners of the map. And each of you brings something unique, real, and worthwhile to the soiree. Thank you friends for contributing so much to this process.

And to celebrate with you, I am taking one of you to lunch. Simply leave a comment from now through Friday and tell me your favorite place to have a mid-day nosh.

On Saturday morning I will pick one of your fabulous names at random from my magic hat. What is the prize? A $20.00 gift card to the restaurant you picked. And then you are off to your favorite spot. Just a small way for me to share the blog love.

I wish I could join you but enjoy a bite (and maybe a sip) on me and know I am toasting you all from Atlanta. Here is to all of us that are writing, reading, and responding to one another.

A thousand rays of gratitude,
JennyMac
PS: If I can't get a giftcard to your venue easily, I have a great back up plan.

JennyMac, you should add the word 'modest' to your profile. You are a gift to the blogging world - and it is a pleasure to be at your cocktail party. Thanks for inviting me. (I'm sure I was invited??!!) Congratulations!

My name is PJ. said...

Congratulations, Jenny Mac!
Congratulations, Jenny Mac!

You're welcome.

Congrats to you, Jenny Mac! You certainly deserve all the accolades. Snuggled up near you at SITS the a.m. Have a lovely Monday!

Tammy Howard said...

Congratulations! That is just an amazing honor, and so well deserved. I had no idea you'd only been at this for eight months!

Lunch. Hmmmm. I'll have to think on that...

Simone said...

OMG, that is AMAZING....how fabulous!!!!

Many congratulations....you absolutely deserve this.....we do realise we can't keep you to ourselves, much though we would love to!! ;)

It couldn't have happened to a more talented and gorgeous girl.....really pleased for you :)

SUGAR said...

oh my god, that is serious stuff!! congratulations!!

Amanda said...

You deserve it! I can't wait to read the article in Woman's World!

It's funny, I'm sure that normally a dozen lovely restaurants or cafes - or wine establishments - would pop right into my mind at the mention of your lovely offer, but for some reason at the moment it's just not happening. Probably because it's almost 7 am and I've already been up for almost 3 hours . . . I'll have to get back to you.

But I wanted to stop in and congratulate you! Go you. I'll drink to that.

Christina Lee said...

How FAN-TABULOUS!!!!! You deserve to celebrate!!

f8hasit said...

Well now, Miss JennyMac...I knew you were the bomb, but hot diggity!

Congratualtions! Your famous! (and deservedly so)

How 'bout YOU choose the spot and I'll pop on down to Atlanta and join you. THAT sounds like a plan...
:-)

Way to go girlfriend!

Kate said...

Congratulations! That is fantastic news!

susan said...

Happy Dance...! Congratulations! We can celebrate at my favorite lunch place appropriately named "Just for Lunch"!

The Peach Tart said...

That's a great honor and well deserved. Congratulations.

Little Ms Blogger said...

How great! No awesome!

It's no surprise you'd get noticed. Your blog has everything plus some recipes for food and drinks - what more could a girl ask for?

Fav place to eat lunch has been my house recently (ummm unemployed), but I will treat myself to this amazing Chinese restaurant by my house. Food is clean and very tasty.

mbkatc230 said...

Congratulations!!! What a well deserved accolade. I just love your blog, it always, but always, can make me smile. And this news brings the biggest smile to date! Can't wait to run out and buy the issue. As far as my favorite place for lunch, it's a little fusion place right off of our courthouse square called Nona's. Seriously doubt that you can easily get a gift card, so whatever your back up is, I'm sure it will be fabulous. Kathy

CatLadyLarew said...

Congratulations, Miss JennyMac, Mac, Mac!

Buckeroomama said...

Congratulations all around, Jenny Mac!

kyslp said...

Congrats! I am so excited for you! I'm also surprised that you have been blogging for 8 months. I thought you'd been around forever, darling.

I enjoy lunch at Panera Bread. Now excuse me because I have a magazine to purchase.....,

Mom in High Heels said...

Well, you know I already have my heels on, so I'm ready to party and perhaps sip on a cocktail (or 3). You have an awesome blog and I love reading it. I live in Europe, so getting a gift card would be pretty useless over here. I'm going out next Sat though, so I'll be sure to hoist my glass in honor of you.

Mommy Mac said...

Published.

Touch you.

Double touch you.

Very BIG congratulations from the state above, Jenny Mac!

It's no surprise though. You make me spit drink out my mouth when I read your stuff.

My favorite place to munch?

Let's see.

McDonalds
CiCi's Pizza
Shoney's
Ryan's Steakhouse

Any of those would be just fine and if I got a 20 spot, I could feed the whole family too.

Seriously, pour some el cheapo food on me.

Seriously.
Snicker. Snicker. Grin. Wink.

It's really the finer things in life for me. Really.

.mac :)

mo.stoneskin said...

In some ways I'd love to see my name in 'big girl print", in other ways I'm not so sure...

the walking man said...

That is great to witness and hear. A bases loaded home run. Well done JennyM!

I have no idea what the best place for lunch here is or where it is...one thing we have is no "food identity" but a great and wide ethnic diversity of places.

Katiesperk said...

How exciting! So happy for you!
Cheers!

Caroline Alexander said...

Great news, I really enjoy reading your blog too.

Jennifer

Cee said...

Congrats!!!!

I like Qudoba for lunch...very classy I know. But I can't resist.

secret agent woman said...

Oh, yay! COngratulations - very exciting news.

brainella said...

Dang. That's pretty cool. :-)

Oh, and Taco Mac. Wings and beer, baby. Well, if you aren't going back to work that is...

Michele Renee said...

Congrats!!! Such great news for an otherwise dreary Monday.
My fave place is on a lunch date with one of my boys one-on-one. Maybe some place new.

My Castle in Spain said...

Congratulations and happy blog birthday!!

otherworldlyone said...

That is awesome. I can only imagine how excited you are. I know I would be! Congrats Jenny Mac...you MORE than deserve it!

Food...man, I love food. How about...Chili's.

Chickie said...

Congrats! Woman's World is a magazine that I read cover to cover! This makes it even better!

Scrappy Girl said...

I am SO heading out to pick up a copy of that mag...congrats! Wow! I bet the rush from that FUN lasted a few days if not a week or 2...I would be obnoxiously happy for quite awhile...LOL! I am so proud to be one of your readers.

LiLu said...

Awww, how sweet!

There's an Elephant and Castle right near my office that is to DIE for. Nommmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Thanks for your comment on my interview, btw! And congrats on 30K!!!

Lisa said...

How awesome is that?

Can I get your autograph?

ladytruth said...

Wow, Woman's World Magazine! That is even more fabulous than a pair of Jimmy Choos, lady! Congratulations. I can't say I'm surprised really; judging by your followers, the number of visitors you received and the all in all content of your blog it is evident that you deserve it. Enjoy the moment and thanks for giving good blog ;)

Oh, my favorite place to lunch is a little Italian place called Prima. The best seared fillet in town :)

Georgina said...

What a nice post! It really is refreshing to hear that an blogger I admire in so many ways, hasn't let the Ego get in the way. I was thinking this morning about how much I appreciate my readers and their comments too. With so much to choose from, and so few hours in the day, I really appreciate that people take the time to come by my place. Have an awesome, awesome week! (I'm in Canada, so you probably won't be able to get me a card if I win. If I do, please send a grocery gift card to your nearest homeless shelter or transition house. - G

FROM THE RIGHT BANK said...

Congratulations! That is just fantastic! And 30,000th visitor? Amazing. What a brilliant idea to take your readers out to lunch. Have a great Monday!

P.S. I was recently in Atlanta. That's a very cool city you've got there.

Kimi said...

Holy freaking awesome, Batman. Seriously I can't begin to tell you how completely jealous we all our! Huge congrats though it is totally well deserved.

Emily said...

Way cool! Congrats!!!
Hmmm, my favorite lunch place is probably La Paz. There's nothing like a mid-day margarita!

My favorite place would have to be.... Cafe Rio. The salads there are delicious! (It's a Mexican place here in Utah. SO good)

JenJen said...

JennyMac
I real-fast read your post because I was so excited for you.
Seriously girl, I got tears.
So proud to know you, even if it's with e-cocktails and blogs.

PS I like to eat anywhere there are cloth, not paper, napkins. Because usually that's where kids are few and drinks are many. :)

Michael Rivers said...

Congrats on the 8 months! I've really enjoyed your blog. I enjoy many places for lunch. Chevys, Olive Garden, TGIFridays, Chipolte and many more!

Keep up the great work!

Brandi said...

Hi Lisa Anne. Get SiteMeter. It only tracks unique views from unique IP addresses. And be sure to block your own so your own views are not included.

Congrats to you! It couldn't be more deserved, JennyMac! I need to go pick up that magazine now, so I too can see your name in big girl print!! :)

I look forward to reading your thoughts every day. And how fun would it be to REALLY go to lunch? It'll have to do from afar for now, i guess... Hula Hut here in Austin is the place to be!

Jeney said...

Your writing is spot-on, your blog is hilarious, and you my friend are what I aspire to be. So kudos and cheers and congratulations and all that - and blow a little bit of that amazing talent my way, eh?

PS - My favorite place for lunch is Famous Dave's. Because I love me some barbecue. And because I'm usually a mess already.

Jacky said...

Congrats to you! Such exciting stuff, especially the WW contributing. I just may have to pick up a copy...=)

I just wanted to tell you that I enjoy your blog. Actually, I would probably rate it as one of my "guilty pleasures"! I don't make it over to comment, but I read every post! =)

Oh, lunch? Definitely! I'll be there. Panera's at 12? Sounds perfect. See you then!

Pollyanna said...

My favorite lunch spot is not fancy, but it's darn good: Qdoba.

My favorite restaurant to take a mid-day nosh at is claim jumper! (it ends up being dinner too because their meals are so large!)
I'll be checking back often :)
-Mini Baker

Stephanie Faris said...

WOW. I've known authors who have spent years trying to get recognized by Woman's World. Apparently they pay $1,000 for their short fiction stories in those mags. They're very picky and know talent when they see it!

blueviolet said...

You most definitely deserve this success! Congratulations!

Let's lunch at The Olive Garden!

Jen said...

Congratulations! That is so amazing. How did you pull that coup off? I need your agent.
Wish I could grab a drink with you but alas Atlanta is a little far away.

Jenny.Lee said...

Congratulations!!! You definitely deserve the success!

My fav place to lunch is a local deli called the Dilly Deli. It's adorable AND the food is delish!

Mrs Montoya said...

So happy to hear you're getting the recognition you deserve. I'd put you right up there with Starbucks and Nordy's shoe department as far as my addictions go. Can't wait to read your fabulous book - that WILL be next, right?!?! Seriously, well deserved. Congratulations, JennyMac!

TheWordWire said...

What great news for you! Congratulations on your success!

Bex said...

congratulations! that is really exciting!

JennyMac said...

Jen: They came to me! Luckily.

But I am sure you mean "coup" in the nicest possible way.

I was an agent for years so I will ignore Shakespeare's advice about a fool being his own counsel.

Pink Links said...

Congratulations!!!

You and your blog are so lovely:)

Unknown Mami said...

I am over the moon for you! Congratulations!

prerna said...

Wow!! Congrats and this is so wonderful.. And you've been at this for like only 8 months.. Super awesome!!
Wish could join you for lunch, but being in India, hmm...Anyways, am toasting to you and cheering you on..
Blessings!

danielle shelton-walczak said...

Jenny: I have been following your blog for only a couple of months now...but I think it is very funny and amusing. Because I love great blogs I have recommended your blog to my readers to check out. Keep up the good work, and congratulations on the anniversary and the accolades.

LB said...

Congratulations! I will toast to that. What an amazing accomplishment and such an inspiration to others!

Laoch of Chicago said...

Nice!

Liz said...

Wow. That is a total dream come true. Congratulations. I am not surprised; I think you rock. (And although Starbucks is not a real restaurant, with 2 small kids, a full-time job, and a blog I try to keep up with, I always need some caff.)

Jenn@ You know... that blog? said...

Congratulations!!!

I can't say I'm surprised they tapped you - you have the gift m'dear!

I'd much rather pop down from Toronto and have lunch with you some time. ;)

Tooj said...

Insanely jealous that you were recognized, interviewed, and now a contributor to a magazine! And to think I had no notion whatsoever of wanting to write for anyone. Wait, I still don't. I just post silly pictures of my children. But somehow....the blogland turns into so much more, doesn't it? Wait, here I go again. You said leave a comment about food. I messed this one up with the post above. My fault. I eat anywhere, but I'd rather be "noshing" in Atlanta or Chicago or New York. Not Kansas City. Pizza rocks though, and Minsky's is delicious.

Idea #527 said...

Congratulations! And you (the blog that is) are only 8 months old??? That's amazing!!

I can't think of a favorite restaurant since I love any food in general! :)

Brandy said...

Congratulations! That's amazing news and definitely celebration worthy.

Dandy said...

Congratulations that is sooo fantastic!

My favorite place to nosh... well the one with the mimosas and bloody mary's of course!

Confessions of a Mother, Lawyer, Crazy Woman said...

Congrats!!! I think this accomplishment warrants a new handbag and, of course, a new pair of heels!

strokeofliving said...

That is a wonderful accolade Jenny Mac! Women's World Magazine - WOW!! This is the sort of thing about which urban legends are made. The mother/daughter/sister/friend who started blogging 8 months ago and received a call from a national magazine...

Just wonderful I tell you. Congratulations!!! Yes, let's have a cocktail.

One Sassy Girl said...

Exciting stuff!! If my predictions are correct, this blog will be around for much longer than that. I expect to see you nashing it out with Oprah one day.

xx

Oh, and my fave place for lunch is Wallace Station in Lexington, KY. I don't live there now, but it's worth a mention for sure, sigh... now I'm hungry.

Margo said...

that is so exciting! Congratulations - you deserve it!

Midtown Girl said...

Couldn't have happened to a more wonderful blogger than yourself - many congrats girl!

XOXO
Amy

AmyK said...

Wow, Congratulations! I know all of us are very excited and busting with pride for you. You don't need to enter me since I have won one of your give aways previously. (I used it toward airline miles and nearly have enough for a free ticket... thank you very much.) You deserve all the recognition you get.

Tiaras said...

MANY congrats girlie!

Alexis AKA MOM said...

Oh sweetie you're too flipping sweet! I don't think I've gone out to dinner in a year. Hmmm that would be adult time with my husband? I'm not sure I could handle that ... LOL

I love this little Italian spot here in T-Town. Opa it's so yummy!

the wild raspberry said...

i'm usually just a stalker here...but i love to come over and read your salty stories. you really do have a gift for writing...
best wishes~
chasity

oh...i love me some 54th street.

LadyFi said...

A billion zillion congratulations from this Brit living in Sweden!

Now, if you could fix it so I could have a delicious lunch at that wonderful Japanese place called Roppongi?...

Actually, anything not burnt by myself would be wonderful!

Just Playing Pretend said...

You are famous!!!! Famous I tell you. Congrats that is some pretty darn exciting news!

You're grandtastical.

Leah Rubin said...

Holy moly! I am so excited for you it's like it was happening to me! But you-- you so deserve it, and I will look for the magazine tomorrow when I hit the supermarket! You are a great role model-- you should be exulting in your success! Yay, JennyMac!

Lunch sounds awesome! Come on over!

MissBliss said...

And yet another reason why you rock!
