HuffPo & Me!


Arianna Huffington is my new bestie! Valentine's Day is in less than two weeks. I usually don't give a flying fork about Vday. I'm an army of 1+poodle, and can't really imagine having the time or patience for much else. But even if I did have a +1, I really wouldn't have anytime for him seeing as my brownies have been FEATURED ON THE HUFFINGTON POST!

pardon the bad editing of this screen shot
 THAT'S RIGHT!  About a week ago, an Etsy Admin member contacted me about a possible feature on the Huffington Post's Valentine's Day Gifts for Men, from Etsy guide. I kind of half believed it was a hoax, but seeing as how they didn't ask me for my social security number and weren't claiming to be one of my long lost cousins from Nigeria (which wouldn't really have worked on me, seeing as how I've actually spent time with good amount of my family in Nigeria) I responded to the email and provided the information they ask for, and told myself that nothing would come of it. I'm a pessimist in that way, tragic I know.

But wouldn't you know, as I was I checking my Etsy stats this morning, I saw a big spike in traffic, and sure enough the source was from the one and only Huffington Post. #O.M.G.

As you would imagine, I'm geekin' at my desk right now. And I'm also thinking of every way I can drive traffic to the article . I'm also freaking out a bit, and worrying that this will either be a bust for and result in 0 sales, or be an amazing success resulting in more sales than I have space in my kitchen to bake with.

Obviously, I have issues. But either way, this totally just made my Friday!

And I would be remiss if I say it. What are you getting YOUR guy from V-Day? Butter is Love and Browned Butter is Lust. True Story.

!Besos de Chocolate!
