So You’ve Never Been Freshly Pressed! Then it is your lucky day, because you qualify for membership in the NBFP Club. Yes, there are other bloggers just like you who have chosen WordPress.com but WordPress.com hasn’t chosen you… or them…
By my estimation, (and by virtue of my self appointed rank of President of NBFP I am authorized to do estimates) 99.9986% of WordPress bloggers have not, and never will be Freshly Pressed. Don’t ask me how I came to that conclusion. It is advanced math and like WordPress, I am not at liberty to tell you how and why I do what I do. Rest assured, however, that no matter how many of your fellow bloggers get Freshly Pressed and no matter how many of your fellow Bloggers are Freshly Pressed on numerous occasions, they still are a very small minority. There are, you see, nearly 40 million new posts each and every month for WordPress to choose from!
I’m sure you are as excited about the NBFP Club as I am. You already know the benefits of Never Being Freshly Pressed, but let me itemize them for you (this is why I am President – I am organized too):
- no long lines of strangers hanging about your blog hoping to cash in on your fame
- no feelings of inadequacy if you don’t get Freshly Pressed again
- no depression when your site stats slip back to normal
- no need to live up to your past fame
Of course, the NBFP Club will be more than just a virtual reality. I’ve found us a clubhouse.
I know it doesn’t look all that good right now…
But my contractors assure me that with just a few renovations, this is what our place could look like. I think the restaurant and patio will be wonderful!
Since the inauguration of our club, we’ve rounded up a few bloggers who are eager to serve on our Board. The good thing about our Club is that anyone can be on the Board simply by volunteering to fill a position that they invent. How cool is that!
UPDATE: It is with extreme sadness that I announce I was Freshly Pressed on July 9, 2013. I therefore announce my resignation as President, though I will still retain my title of Founder and First President.
Our New President is Al at the cvillean . Previous to this, Al was our very capable Treasurer. If you would like to join the NBFP Club, head over to his blog.
Farewell all and Happy Blogging!
