    I cannot stand April Fools’ Day. And here I thought the WordPress guys just liked me. (sob!)

    I was Blog Of The Minute in early March and today – well it’s just for fun.

    But – come on over – http://www.masterclasslady.com and add your American Idol comments.

    This is the best April Fool’s Day ever! Thanks WordPress. Even if it is just a joke, I enjoyed seeing my blog in The Blog Of The Minute.

    Yes but some of us have elephant memories and we can recall when it was suggested so we figured it out long before the post was made. IMO it was an outstanding April Fool’s joke :D

    I thought that I’d be able to catch every April Fool’s joke I came across. Nope. This one got me completely. I kept checking my blog’s stats and wondering how it could be getting no hits considering it’s on the front page.

    Bravo, WordPress. Bravo.

    It was a great April Fools joke.

    It’s probably going to be the only time I see mine like that.

    Print page, baby!

    It’s a darn good prank, I must say. Better than when my last blog host announced they’d been bought by Sanrio and were switching all the themes to Hello Kitty ones…I nearly had an infarction!

    My heart skipped a beat when I noticed I’d gotten BOTM, but kinda guessed there was something fishy as I just started blogging and hardly get any hits at all yet. I will say this though, joke or no joke it does make your day and give you a little taster of something you make take a long time (if ever) to achieve on real stats……so, yes I appreciate the joke and the good feelings it’s left. Thanks.

    WordPress.com is my favorite site.

    April Fool’s!

    It’s a cute prank, except people sort of catch on when they’re Blog of the Minute for eight hours.

    I’m blog of the minute right now, and even though it’s a joke, it’s still pretty cool. Made my day…

    When my “private” blog showed up on the front page, it didn’t seem so funny! Now it does!

    Considering that this is probably the only time I will ever see my blog there……..at least for a year…….I’m telling everyone that I was the blog of the minute…..hence 60 seconds….they missed it. Sucks to be them. *giggle* Thanks for making my day, WordPress.com. …..Wait….does this mean I only have 14 minutes of fame left?
