Oh EM GEE, yall!! Alicia Keys tweeted me. My day/week/month is MADE!!!
Lemme tell you a story. Picture it, yesterday, my computer…
A friend of mine who knows someone that works at Monster.com emailed me, saying “I got this sent to me and thought of you.” It was a posting for Alicia Keys’, who is looking for a Head Blogger for her new website. It’s a position based in NYC so I was like “Let me tweet it to my Twitfam so they’ll know.” I took the URL and shortened it with Bit.ly (which lets me track the clicks too) and said:
Before I knew it, people were RTing like CRAZY!!! Then last night, I go to my Bit.ly account and saw that 3,000 people had clicked the link. Ok I don’t have THAT much pull. How did that happen? Because…
A. Keys was using the SAME link I did originally. *faints* It got to her!!! This is exciting. This was me when I realized it (read the tweets from the bottom).
Y’all see how I slid Red Pump in there? I really do think she’d love it. But yes, I broke the news of her Head Blogger position. WOO HOO!!!
So when I woke up today, said my morning prayers and checked Twitter (a sad routine), I saw a couple of folks @reply me saying Alicia Keys tweeted to me directly. So I scroll down my replies and see this this:
*faints* A. Keys tweeted me!!! iLive!!! It was in direct response to my tweet saying that I broke the news. i EFFING LIVE!!!!! *leyomi drops through life* *Wall Slides joyfully* *Does the Bro Franklin*
“will you apply?” Well, I wasn’t considering it before because I don’t live in NYC and there’s the little matter of the post I wrote which-shall-not-be-named-but-ain’t-hard-to-find about her where I wasn’t super nice (understatement) but I’m thinking I just may. I do love A. Keys’ the work she does with HIV/AIDS. And despite certain *coughs* recent scandals *coughs*, her music STILL goes hard. If I apply, I hope she doesn’t dump my application in the garbage for my blogging. LOL. Hell, I don roasted so many celebs on here that I lost count. Lawd… see my mouth.
Universe… should I? She DID ask me! *angel face* Plus I hit EVERY criteria she’s looking for. I’d rock that site’s socks!!! I may do it just to say I did. She’s gonna get like 10,000 applications. My rinky dink one won’t even be noticed. Maybe I shall… *strokes chin*
