    I'm freakin' out! Just got an email from a theater company in New York City that's been experimenting with performing monologues based on current issues in the blogosphere. They've gotten great reviews, so they're doing more now. They want to perform one of my hubs!

      Amazing what wonderful opportunities open up because of an online presence.  Should you expect to get paid for them using you work or have they arranged some other compensation?

    Strangely enough, it's one of my beauty pageant hubs! I guess they selected it because kids' beauty pageants is a much-debated topic.

    Thanks, hubbers. I can't wait to learn more. BTW, hubby has just informed me that he has no interest in going to NYC, and to be honest, I have mixed feelings about it, too. Maybe they'll videotape the performance and send me a copy. I just think it's a nice compliment that they want to use my hub. And I think it will give me some more exposure to my writing, which is always a good thing!

        You don't really have a corn silo, do you?
        Is that a quote from "Sargeant York" by chance?

        Seriously, it's a great honor.
        As Cardelean said, it's bigtime FOR us. It's a big deal for all of us at HP and just goes to show that good things do happen to good hubbers smile.
        Thank you for allowing us to share in your moment. Sooooo cool!

        Big congrats, Habee.
        Whether you make the trip to the Big Apple or not, I hope they will give you a video to post on your hub. Great cross-promotion for you both.

          MM, I don't really have a corn silo now, but just a few years ago, I did have a big grain bin! I've also had horses, cows, pigs, goats, chickens, ducks, rabbits, turkeys, and more dogs and cats than you can count - all at the same time. I really am a country girl...er...woman. lol. Honestly, Atlanta is too big for me.

            Don't ask me why, but all your animals reminded me of this great scene in "When Harry Met Sally." Which of course takes place in FAO Schwartz, NY retail icon (in fact the whole movie is a paean to New York City).
            Just to get you in the NY State of Mind:).

      Yeah, that would be cool to see a list of some of the successes of other hubbers. Like, not financial ones but like:
      Who got a book deal from their hubs?
      Who had their hub performed in a theater?
      Who wrote the book of love?

      (Okay that last bit was a joke. tongue)

      But it would be cool to kind of see something like this.
