What I Look Like Really....No Really
The editors at Clutch and Chrome wanted me to write a story for their site on blogging, motorcycling, or something of interest between the two. I took them up on their offer and asked what they were looking for. All this communication was done via my yahoo account. This account happens to have my “signature”: a photograph of me, a link to this very blog and a quote. All very cutesy in order to try and drive web traffic.
I got a response from the editor and he commented on my photograph. Evidently I look quite different in my biker garb. Yeah, I’d say so; I was wearing a dress, had makeup on and actually took the time to roll my hair. Needless to say, I look quite different as a girl dressed up for a date than a girl dressed up in ride gear.
Well unless I’m going on a date in my ride gear, that is!
We got the details of the article worked out and I submitted it. Should be published fairly soon; they’ll let me know when it does. Of course, I’ll do C&C the same favor when it posts to drive the traffic to their site as well. They wanted additional pictures, so I sent them a few pics—who knows which ones they’ll use. I’m really curious to see what image they use as well since I know that the attractive people do a much better job of getting attention than the ones that are not.
My Yahoo account is linked to the Yahoo groups as well so I also respond to the various postings and questions asked when I have something to contribute. What I find funny is the folks over at the Star Riders Yahoo Group think I resemble Pam Tillis. I don’t think so. There for a while it was quite the debate. I guess there were no questions regarding the best saddlebags, pipes, lights, windshields, fuel or whatever the question of the day may be. We debate if I look like Pam Tillis. I do not think I resemble her at all, but hey, that’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it!
I’m just excited that someone asked me to write for them! Well, write something besides school stuff. Not much of a motorcycle story, but it’s about writing, riding and there’s a story so it fits my criteria!
Stay tuned for the details….
Keep the Shiny Side Up!
