I wasn’t going to say this, but since I’m among friends, I confess that I too suffer from Kate Middleton syndrome.

I love to read royal books, but lately I find that I don’t have the time. Looking after a toddler and a baby will do that to you. I have one book that I’ve been trying to review for the last month and a half, and I’m still only on page 149. While I enjoy reviewing books, sometimes I find that the book never ends for me. With the constant starts and stops, I lose a sense of continuity with the content. It becomes a case of slugging through as much of it as I can before the baby wakes up, or while the toddler is distracted by the tv. It shouldn’t be that way, but it is.
I won’t give up but who knew that reading could become such a chore? Especially reading about royalty.

I’ve written over 100 articles on Marilyn’s Royal Blog, but only the first 10 appear on the main page. As a result, sometimes interesting articles on various subjects can get lost. Because of this I’ve decided to add a dropdown menu for my labels, where you can select the particular subject you’re looking for, say ‘Kate Middleton’ and all of the articles I have written about her should come up. I haven’t added all of the labels yet, so I’m just starting with the most popular ones.

Ok, I have to get something off of my chest.
When I started Marilyn’s Royal Blog, I did it because I love royalty I also found that I loved writing too. Deep down inside I hoped that it would lead to something more than just blogging – that it could lead to writing for newspapers, magazines and maybe even the holy grail of all ambitions, Majesty Magazine.
I have had some close calls with getting wider notice – I’ve been interviewed for the Wall Street Journal, the LA Times and the Baltimore Sun. I’m not saying this to brag. It’s great and wonderful to have these publications contact me – very flattering. But I’m finding that it’s a waste of time. Because, despite being interviewed by these places, they’ve never used anything I’ve said! A few days ago I had a TV station in Toronto ask me to appear on a show to discuss the royal family. All things were a go and then they called to say they didn’t need me.
Why do I bother agreeing to these things? Why am I wasting my time? Am I a sucker for punishment?
Once again, back to obscurity I go!
