In the early days, my labor of love had a few dozen readers, most of whom became close friends. We used to chat about fashion and life. Our casual conversations were refreshing and fun.
Then a post of mine unexpectedly went viral; hundreds of thousands of readers flocked to my blog; I started making so much money from advertising that I quit my day-job; journalists interviewed me constantly on national programs; and relatives I barely knew called asking for loans.
Now I hobnob with celebrities; A-list actors try to appear on my blog; and I party all night in fancy hotels. I don't even write my blog anymore... I have a team of assistants who produce daily posts. Overnight, everything changed for me...
...oh wait... was that a dream??
