SHOCK AND AWE

Yes, Shock and Awe is how I would have to describe how I felt when I received a comment from Margaret Russell, Editor in Chief of Elle Decor Magazine this morning. Ms. Russell has actually seen and read my blog! Eeegads! I have to say, I was very pleased and excited. I had to let you all know so that you can read her comment about my Elle Decor Cover post to get the real scoop on how and why a cover photo may be different from the editorial photos.

I want to say a heart-felt THANK YOU to Ms. Russell for visiting and for leaving her kind comments! I hope you all get a chance to look at the post!

That's exciting, Katie! Margaret Russell is MAJOR!

Wow, that is very cool! And to think that you just left a message on my blog, and she left a message on yours. And now I am coming over to leave one on yours. I think that because of that whole Kevin Bacon thing I can safely say I know Ms. Russell and I have had a connection. :-)

Well, maybe not.

That is so cool, very happy for you. :-)

Well, it's clear that MR knows quality when she sees it. Your blog is that, no question. Or, I should say it's your "eye." Good work on that piece!

Very cool! It is so nice to know that the bloggers are not just reporting on design from the outside, but are a PART of the design community!

That's fantastic, Katie! Elle Decor is one of my favourites, too. It must have been amazing when you realized who wrote the comment :)

That is quite the compliment. Wowza! I'm happy that anyone reads my blog, let alone if it was Ms. Russell. How exciting. Was your heart racing while you read her post?

How awesome!! Apparently magazines are really taking notice of what's going on in our little blogging world - watch out big brother is watching - but in this case it seems to be the little guy who's picking up on the mistakes. You did a great job pointing out the discrepancies in that cover. It's no wonder you got her attention. Good for you.

Isn't it exciting when someone famous visits your blog? Matthew Mead (from Country Home) has visited mine, and he emailed me yesterday asking me if I'd do a post about the new release of his fall website. Of course I granted his wish...

Love your blog...it is more than praise worthy!! May I add you as a link on mine??

Cheers,
Linda

Hi Linda!
It was very exciting to get the comment from MR! I bet you were more than excited when Mr. Mead visited you! Congrats! I am off to visit your blog and you absolutely may link me up! Thank you!
