Stats, Stage Fright and Stuff...
It's been an interesting week, folks. And if I must admit, today I'm experiencing a little "stage fright" of sorts.
Let me explain...
As typical, I spent the week working on clients' blogs, preparing articles, doing research...you know, the whole kit and kaboodle that goes with this way of life.
Then, as I concluded another episode of Jeopardy yesterday, (which I never miss), I received an unexpected Email. Much to my surprise, I was featured as one of "60 of the Best Minds in the Blogosphere" over at Possibilityoftoday.com!
I had to read it several times for it to register. :-)
I can't tell you how much it made my day, my week, my month, my year!
And get this--I'm included with some serious heavy-hitters like Seth Godin, Leo at Zen Habits, and Ali Hale of Aliventures.
A special thanks to Sibyl, (who, by the way, is a Harvard graduate) for bestowing this honor. Additional thanks to all those who extended kind words and comments by Email or blog "shout-outs".
Which brings us to today's "stage fright"...
With the anticipated traffic and new eyes potentially coming my way from her readers, and others that made the list, I agonized over how to approach today's post.
Should I be sassy? Cerebral? Funny? Reflective? Philosophical?
Well, you get my drift here.
Ferklempt, I decided to just write the darn post.:-) Hope you enjoy.
With that being said, here are a few stats and announcements for Pen and Prosper for this anniversary month:

Coffeehouse for Writers will begin its new session of popular, online classes on June 27th. With an array of "menu items" to choose, surely there's something for you too!
To properly prepare for upcoming projects, birthday celebration continuation, and the holiday, Jen will be "out of the building" from June 29th to July 8th for summer break.
As always, thanks for spending your time with me. Have a wonderful week.
