Why lusting for fame and glory might be futile..

Posted by Marilyn on May 4, 2007

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!
