So, I guess it's been about a month since I last blogged, huh?
I feel bad that I've put my blog on the back burner because it's because of this that I've been able to meet so many new people & do so many new & fun things.
And, I am sooooooo thankful for that.
I think about blogging everyday, but by the time I have time to sit down & do it, it's 10:30 at night & I'M SO TIRED CAN'T I JUST GO TO BED ALREADY?
My new goal is to take 5 to 10 minutes each night (or every other night) to blog...whether it's just a picture or an observation or something funny I want to remember.
That starts NOW.
You guys know what a huge K*ris Allen fan I am, right? (And, I am currently working on a very special project for/with him that I'll tell you more about later...)
Anyway, his wife, Katy, is starring in a new web series called, "The Bloodstone Diaries". The pilot episode premiered at a local bar last month & I was able to go.
KA fans that I met via Twitter. We all live in Arkansas & we all went to the premier together (Risa knows Katy's mom...they used to work together.)
webisode was filmed in a local restaurant called "Bobby's Cafe." After we saw the premiere, Carole, Risa & I made a date to have lunch there. AND GET OUR PICTURE MADE WITH THE BOBBY'S SIGN IN THE BACKGROUND OF COURSE!
Carole, Risa & I have formed an awesome friendship that goes deeper than just being KA fans! It just proves that friendship knows no age limits!
Another big thing that's happened to me is I'm now the Morning Manager for American Idol Now or AINow, a website solely devoted to American Idol. And, I love it!
It just kind of happened & not many people know about it (to my family members who are reading this: SURPRISE!)
On Thursday, I GOT TO MEET DANNY GOKEY. He was a Top 3 finalist on this past season of American Idol.
My TV station has a partnership with some local radio stations...KSSN being one of them. I was in the room when our promotions manager asked my boss if we could cover a private concert with Danny. YES WE CAN. AND, I'LL VOLUNTEER TO DO THE INTERVIEW.
My photographer & I got there kinda early, so they let us be in the "booth" with Danny, while the DJ interviewed him live. We got to hear Danny & his band sing 2 songs live on air.
You can read & listen here.
I realize this post has been all about AMERICAN IDOL. My life is not all about AI, I promise, although after reading this, that might be hard to believe. But, it's not.
I'll be back...
