So anyone who’s anyone in the world of blogging and social media is aware of and in awe of Julia Allison. She’s part of the new generation of online media mavens making a name for themselves on the Web. She’s a dating columnist for Time Out New York. She runs NonSociety with two of her friends.
Point: She’s pretty darn awesome. So, in a bit of brazen bravery, I emailed her a few months ago and asked about freelancing for her site. I figured that she’s a busy lady (who wouldn’t want to go on dates and then write about them?!?!?), but I opened my email a few days ago to find this message:
Hi HI HI Hi Hi Melissa!!!
I love you! I always follow your tweets and I’ve seen you email me a few times and have meant to respond! I think you could definitely be an asset to us. Can you let me get my bearings after this whole travel thing and taping TMI tomorrow and then remind me to get back to you by the end of the week? Thank you so much!!
An email. From Julia Allison. For me. Suffice it to say that things could quite possibly be looking up for me on the writing front! Thanks for the email, Julia! YOU’RE AWESOME!!!
