The Campaign marches on. I sent Oprah another little note, presented below.
Hello, it’s me again. You may remember that I wrote a few months ago. I had hoped to hear from you, but I am not discouraged. It occurs to me that you might not have even received my first email. Perhaps a well-meaning, yet shortsighted, intern neglected to pass it on.
Here’s a recap of that first email.
1) Message from God via Oprah
2) Empty nest
3) Soul searching
4) Do what you love
5) Would-be writer
6) Oprah Magazine-worthy blog https://pegoleg.wordpress.com/.
The blog gives a little background information about me, so I won’t go into detail here. Suffice it to say, you and I have a lot in common:
YOU live in Illinois; I live in Illinois.
YOU struggle with weight and fitness issues; I struggle with weight and fitness issues.
YOU are a 50-something woman; I am a 50-something woman.
YOU are a gazillionaire; I struggle with weight and fitness issues.
We’re practically twins.
I present an Everywoman point of view that I think your readers would enjoy. Won’t you consider sponsoring my blog on the Oprah Magazine website?
Please check it out at https://pegoleg.wordpress.com/. Just a heads up – some of my blog fans (aka family members) may also be writing to encourage you to read my blog.
Sincerely & Respectfully,
I sent this to the same place that you’re just about to send your email plugging my blog, right? Here’s the link https://www.oprah.com/ownshow/plug_form.html?plug_id=505
I’m sure we’re making progress. The email-screening intern is getting intrigued. About to bump this up the food-chain to an actual Oprah employee (soon to be fellow-employee). I can feel it!
Stay strong, and thanks for your continued support.
Your sister in the struggle,
