Look, Ma! I'm in The Guardian!

Tom & Jerry article in The GuardianYes, that is correct. I found out last night I had been quoted on page TWO of the Guardian newspaper. Of course, completely baffled why that could be, I ran down to Sainsburys in the rain and picked up a copy.

It turns out Ben Rooney, who writes the Today on the web feature for the Guardian and picked up a selection of comments about the Tom & Jerry smoking ban, and mine is the top quote! Click on the thumbnail to read the full feature.

I always say that journalists who quote bloggers are journalists who didn’t do their homework and are getting last-minute sources online, but in this case, thanks for not doing your homework, Ben! 😉

Thanks to Glenda from Corrieblog for pointing this out to me, as I probably would’ve missed out on it altogether otherwise.

Being a blogger and getting recognition, however small, in the traditional media is quite a boost for the morale. I doubt it’ll bring me any more readers or make even the remotest of differences, but it still feels great.

    Sure it feels great, i think, when a paper pays attention to your blog. Well even in the Netherlands i can read that paper, which i didn’t but..
    Now i jumped onto the web and i found someone which blog is quoted in The Guardian. I like that!! In my country there’s also a paper which pays sometimes a little bit attention on blogs so i’m waiting now.

    bye bye
