bloggers, Facebook, fame, Jennifer Aniston, super-fantastico-cool, Twitter, yoga bloggers brat pack, yoga bloggers hall of fame, Yoga Journal
Right, I’m gonna flaunt my connections to the glamorous world of the Yoga Bloggers Hall of Fame!
Things were all a-Twitter yesterday with a rumour (on the grapevine) there’d been a mention of the venerable Yoga Dork blog in the rather popular Yoga Journal magazine!
At first it was just hearsay, and then there was a confirmed sighting! Finally, there was extensive photographic proof!
Anyways, seems Yoga Dork wasn’t the only blogger I know who got a mention in the article. Not that I’m name-dropping or a groupie or anything, mind you…
But the article also included honourable mentions for Yoga, the Mind & Culture (Brooks)!!
Okay, there were others too. Blogs I haven’t read before (but probably will now).
So how cool is that?!
I’ll tell you – its super-fantastico-cool!!
It’s like Yoga Journal have called a trend – they’ve picked the first generation of brat pack yoga bloggers out there doin’ their thang.
Have to wonder though, now these kids have been noticed… will life change drammatically overnight? Will they forsake their friends and long term readers for a brand new celebrity following? Will they become friends with Jennifer Aniston (noted yogi) on Facebook?
Suddenly, the world has so many possibilities!
Maybe their blogs will be turned into books and/or movies??
Ironically, this article about yoga blogs isn’t available on Yoga Journal’s website (doh!), which would’ve added some lovely back links to everyone’s blogs. Oh well…
Hopefully, at least a handful of the gazillion readers of Yoga Journal will carry their mag to their computer and faithfully type in each URL, find out more about the above-mentioned blogs and stay on.
Even if that’s like, 1% of their readership, that’ll still be heaps and heaps.
As for me, I’m getting ready to ride on their coat-tails, becoming part of the entourage, wearing over-sized brand name sunglasses, driving real fast to avoid all the paps and living off the fortunes of others! 😉
Or well… maybe not. But I’m still super-pleased for those who’ve gained a little attention for their excellent yoga-writing ways!
You know, I think that Dr Jay has been ignoring me recently. Just yesterday saw him wearing dark glasses at NIGHT, boredly signing autographs on the bodies of beautiful young women. I think fame spoiled him.
@Bird – You know, I think you might be right!! 😉
I LOVE this! Thanks so much, I feel like quite the celeb with a YD star. yay!
awesome post.. made me laugh 🙂 will keep an eye out for you in my sunglasses at night incognito
Woohoo! Girl you are most definitely moving up. Rubbing elbows with the rich and famous.
Thanks, Svasti! I love the Yoga Brooks image! And thanks for letting me know about “my newly found fame” in your comment on my blog! It really has made my day! And this post made me laugh!
I don’t plan to change much…
Well whoo hah! How ’bout Dr. Jay getting an honorable mention in the mag! I used to subscribe to Yoga Journal but let it drop, so I haven’t been a regular reader. Thanks so much for this news. I’ll get me to a proper store this weekend and pick up my copy. (It really was strange that they didn’t do this in conjunction with the online site, though!)
@yogadork – You ‘stars’ are more than welcome to take my humble offering to your glorious starriness and do with it what you will. Hang it on your wall if ya like!!
But ya won’t have to keep an eye out for me so much. I’ll be right there, riding in your limo! 😉
@tricia – I *know*! How awesome am I, to be associated with such fabulous types?
@yogabrooks – As I said, feel free to grab your star for your own personal use! But we’ll be keeping an eye on you to see how much you change, hehe!
@Lydia – Yeah, you should buy a copy so you can eventually get it signed by the good doctor! 😉
you are too funny Svasti!! I love the Yoga Stars you created, you clever gal 😉 Surely you will be in the article that makes it to print! xox
@Karin – Hehe, well mostly I aim to amuse myself and if others are amused… bonus! Nah, my blog is not specifically yoga-ish enough to be featured in YJ, really.
svasti, you may want to check out my blog post today….;)
@linda – Yes, very good, haha! 😉
A very kind post, Svasti, and I join you in a big congrats to all!
@earthtoholly – Indeed! I think its awesome when anyone I know gets recognition for their work 🙂
THANKS, Svasti, as usual I AM LATE on the news, missed it all on Twitterville…appreciate your update. Will go find YJ now. (WHY aren’t they putting it online, grr.)
HUGE congrats to Brooks, Jay, and the Dork! It’s time you were recognized in the wider yoga community.
You’ll need to get a string for the shades so they don’t fall off in DFD 🙂
@laughingyogini – Hey no probs! I’m glad to be of service in spreading the news 🙂
I think I’ll remove the shades once inside a yoga studio, don’t really want them interfering with my asana. Although, we’d need security at the front to keep the paps out! Hehee!!
