So, I came home this evening to see this:
Yep, my blog post on Jeonju’s south gate got Freshly Pressed.
As you can imagine, I’m pretty happy about that.
Thank you to everyone who has visited, liked, commented, and followed the blog as a result, as well as all those who have been faithful followers for a while. I appreciate you all.

Bloody fantastic!!!! Well done you. Didn’t you say the other day that there was not going to be a hope you;’d be Freshly Pressed?

Yay, David!! That’s so awesome. I’m so very happy for you. It’s a great post! Congratulations!! Well deserved.

Thanks, Amy. Did they email you when you were Freshly Pressed? I just found out when I opened my email and found a bunch of new people following the blog.

Yes, I did receive an email telling me it would be up in a couple of days. So, I even had some notice. Maybe it was more like a day and a half. Are you having fun? I hope so. I knew it was only a matter of time before you’d be Freshly Pressed!

Yeah, it’s fun, getting lots of new follows and seeing the page view numbers jump up, solidly crushing my best day before this. 🙂 Not sure why they didn’t email me, but it’s all good. I’ll just grab a copy of the Freshly Pressed badge from someone’s site. 🙂

That’s weird they didn’t email you! Hmm. I’ve heard that happened to others before, too. Have you checked your widgets? I think I could just grab the badge from my widgets. Maybe they put it there once you’ve been Pressed. You can always take it from mine! 🙂

I’ll check there.

Congrats!!!! Glad to hear that. 🙂

Yer a celebrity! Don’t let it go to your head! 🙂

Don’t worry; I’ll just hide in my tower until everyone goes away. 🙂

You’re sweet as always Sharmishtha and thank you. Freshly pressed is blog posts that WordPress features. They do a handful every day and they are available to everybody on the site.
