You won’t believe this……… iLoveshelling.com is going to be in the news!!!!! Thanks to you!!
I guess you’ve been spreading the word about my shelling blog and the pictures I’ve been posting because I had two…..yep, I said “TWO” interviews yesterday for the press. Holy cow!
Yesterday morning, I met writer David LaGaccia from the Florida Weekly newspaper at the lighthouse beach to show him why we all loving shelling so much. What a nice guy. He didn’t know a lot about seashells or any of the other treasures that wash up on our beaches so I think he was genuinely intrigued. I was a little nervous so I completely forgot to take a picture of him or the shells on the beach to share. Okay, maybe I was a little more nervous than I thought because I felt so tongue tied being interviewed and goofy having my picture taken. I’m usually the one behind the camera taking the pictures.
And then I started SWEATING (sorry, but I had to scream). Get this- in the afternoon, I had an interview with Ilene Safron from Main Sail Video Productions to do a segment for our local news channel WINK TV. They filmed me blogging! I am like a deer in head lights when I have to speak on a video and this is going to be on TV. Yikes! Ilene and her assistant Jessica turned out to be very easy and calming that my anxiety changed to excitement. I was even more relaxed when we got to the beach at Blind Pass where I got to show them all of the shells. So now I’m more excited than crazy (a shower helped too- LOL) and I can’t wait until both show up next week.
The Florida Weekly will hit the stands on Wednesday June 23.
The WINK TV (local CBS affiliate) segment will air Friday June 25 at noon
I had to share all of the excitement since you are helping to spread the shelling joy! I’ll keep you posted.
CONGRATS! You have arrived! So happy your blog is getting the well-deserved attention. Pam, you have contributed much to promote not only those of us obsessed with shelling but putting Sanibel on the radar! You go, girl!
Good for you Pamela!!!!! You are such a natural looking star (fish) – (I couldn’t resist). I can’t wait to see and to read about you. I might learn something new…..
Congrats on the great news! Keep up the great work!
Congrats!!!! Will look for the magazine.
Well deserved – I love your blog and check it daily. I only wish I were there so I could see it on TV. Very cool!!
This is so exciting!!!!! Now that you’re a star, can I say I knew you when…?
Seriously, this is such great news. You’re not only bringing our passion for shelling to others, you’re showing them how much fun blogging is! I wish I could see it here, but maybe the video will be on their website, you’ll have to let us know. Do I hear the word Emmy in your future?
Congratulations Pam!! I can’t think of anyone who deserves it more! You have dedicated yourself 100% to very special activity! You have created a wonderful, real time connection for those of us that can only be there part time! You deserve all the recognition you get! A CLASS ACT!!! Thanks so much!!!
You have given me such wonderful warm and fuzzies! I feel like shouting out SHELLERS UNITE! haha. I can’t thank you enough for your sweet and thoughtful comments.
I hope to be able to put a link to the article in the Florida Weekly and the link to the WINK news video on my blog. All I can do now is keep my fingers crossed that everything turned out ok and the deer in head lights look didn’t show up on my face.
That is so exciting:) Theres a reason they picked you, we all love your blog. Even though I don’t live on Sanibel I will look for both when they come out. Maybe on Wink news they will have the clip for those of us that can’t get that station :)
By the way, Blind Pass is as pretty as ever.
So exciting!!! Will there be a video to post…, I hope so!!
oh my gosh Pam!!!! Congrats!!!!! you totally deserve it!!! u r a superstar!!! HAHAH!!
Congrats, Pam!! Wish I was somewhere that I could see the clip on the news and pick up the magazine. Wishing I was there at Blind Pass as well! I’m still holding out for my trip in October. Don’t have airline tickets yet, but have the condo on hold. When it comes time for my final payment I’ll have to chat with them to make sure they will refund if the oil comes in on the beaches. Holding out on the airline tickets for the same reason. I really NEED to be there!!
Congratulations Pam, you deserve the recognition. Your shelling blog is the greatest. Thanks.
You are awesome! but, I always knew that :)
I’m very happy for you!
