So I had this email come though one day from THIS website and at first I thought it was SPAM. So I was going to Delete it, but the subject line said: INTERVIEW.
So I got curious. I opened the email.
Guess what freak shows. They wanted to interview ME because of THIS blog! Our Real World Blog!
I KNOW!? Right? I was more excited then a new mom who just fit back into her Pre-Pregnancy Jeans! I kid you not.
So I emailed them back. And I waited for a reply, because I knew I was getting punked. And I was ready for a killer response to the person punking me... I was going to punch them in the arm.
But this was FOR REAL! I kept telling them that NONE of us were experts on the blog, but they just kept saying our blog is exactly what they needed for their site.
We scheduled a time, they called me, and the interview took place (It was funny because I had never been PODCAST interviewed before, they call you up on the phone and you talk. So I hear the music begin to introduce the podcast--he does the whole "We are with Shelle Blok from such and such, thanks for being with us" and I totally froze, wasn't sure if I was suppose to say "Hi" or what, so I just said nothing and he was like, "Hello? Did I lose you?" and I'm like, "No No NO! I'm sorry, I didn't know what to do! You didn't say what to do here!"--like a complete idiot, and he thought that was pretty hilarious--and I'm a nerd). And the WHOLE time I knew someone was going to say, "You're on Candid Podcasts!" (you gotta say that with the Candid Camera jingle) or something like that.
BUT... (wait for it...)they never did! It was actually a Real Podcast! They have my picture up and a description of me that I wrote on my profile and they make me sound REALLY important, even though it's little ol' me.
SO here is the interview: CLICK HERE TO HEAR MY LITTLE GIRL VOICE AND MY FREAKISH LAUGH Now you'll understand why I went with the voice option yesterday.
I was so excited when they emailed me to say this was all legit and that the interview was up! And I kinda fell in love with podcasting. So don't be surprised when you are suddenly emailed by us asking for us to interview you via podcast... just sayin.
When you get to the site, it will have a bunch of podcasts listed. The Real World one says, "Relationship Blogger Shelle Blok"... so press play on that one, number 3 I believe.
How cool is that button? It's so official and stuff.
Anyway--a question--do you ever worry about what your kids will think, if they ever begin to read your blog, when you are writing a post? That was one of the questions... you'll have to listen to my answer, but I'm curious what you guys think.
