Add this to the list of exciting things that have happened to me: I was featured in the BuzzFeed Community!

Anyone can write and publish a post using BuzzFeed’s Community tool. After you write your post, you can suggest it to be featured on the BuzzFeed Community page. BuzzFeed Commmunity editors select their favorite submissions and post them on the Community page. This ensures that people will actually see your post (otherwise, it will only be seen by those who you email the link to).

Call it beginner’s luck or my own natural BuzzFeed abilities (*dusts off shoulders*), but my very first post was selected to be featured on the BuzzFeed Community page! Check it out here:
