Yesterday, around this time, I received the following email from WordPress.com editrix Michelle Weber:
Dust off the welcome mat and get ready to welcome some new readers — we’ve picked your post (http://bolesblogs.com/2013/06/04/do-you-remember-kaposis-sarcoma/ ) to feature on Freshly Pressed on WordPress.com!
This must have been a tough post to write, but it’s an important one — thank you. We thought it was a great read and think the rest of the community will agree — we’re really looking forward to the discussion that comes out of it, and are glad we can give it (and you) some more exposure. The wide variety of high-quality content on your site deserves a bigger audience!
Keep up the great blogging! Follow @freshly_pressed on Twitter to be inspired by other great bloggers — we also tweet each new Freshly Pressed post, so it’s the easiest way to know exactly when to start bragging. (I’ve tagged @BolesBlogs in the tweet, so you should get a mention notification as soon as it launches.)
Thanks for being such an awesome part of the WordPress.com community. We couldn’t do it without you!
