It’s happened again… a sign from the hosting honchos at Word Press.com that someone over there has their eye on Cachando Chile. Turns out that the “Confessions of a Closet Accordion Lover” caught their eye and they “Freshly Pressed” it, which means that they plucked it from among nearly half a million posts and put it out there front and center for all the Word Press world to see.
If you missed the post, take a look: Confessions of a Closet Accordion Lover. And even if you’ve already read it, take a look again and read through all the new comments. Lots of self-confessed accordion-lovers coming to the forefront and plenty of support for anyone who’s ready to take the big step out of that particular closet. But the best part of all is that there are lots of new suggestions of musicians to look for and video links to great accordion and bandoneón players. Take a look!
This is actually the second time Cachando Chile has been Freshly Pressed. The first was on November 18, 2010, for a playful linguistic article called “Language Play and Politics a la Chilensis” that took a mischievously humorous look at politics through the incisively witty eyes and punny titles of The Clinic (arguably Chile’s answer to The Onion).
Cachando Chile’s in good company over there at WordPress, so pop over and see what the other 7 Freshly Pressed blogs are about today!
Tomorrow it will be someone else’s turn, but I’m enjoying the moment today and just want to say “Hey! Thanks Word Press!“
