Today is Not My Birthday

King With a Crown The truth is, my birthday is a week from now. I don’t do this as an April Fools thing. I do it because I’ve chosen to tell all the databases of the Internet one fact that’s different from the real world. I do this to see where my data ends up. It’s caused a great deal of tricky confusion in the age of people being so kind to me.

At this point, it doesn’t matter which day is my birthday. My birthday is in April. I’m an Aries. I will be 39.

I’m very grateful for all your kindness. It really does matter to me, and every voice counts. As I do every day, I read every response, even when I can’t reply to everything. I sure try.

You’re the best. Me? I’m just pleasantly older.

Want to buy me something? Drop $10 in the bucket here at Mom It Forward for charities supporting women:

Is that a fair gift? Maybe we can raise $1K today for April 1.

    Hi Chris! Happy April Birthday. You’re a bit older than me. I won’t be 39 until Dec; the 29th to be exact. I made a donation to this cause, because The Writer Mama told me to on Twitter. Well, she posted a link to your blog and I read your blog and I clicked the box and gave my money. So I guess it was of my own doing. Enjoy your birthday whenever it may be! ~Amy

    It was Skype contacted me and said it was Chris Brogan’s birthday. I cursed to myself – wishing I’d been given advance notice so I could have sent him one of those @twitgift surprises that can only be sent to people in USA.

    Then I looked on Twitter and saw that Chris was spending the day with some High Schoolers. Got me thinking “what is Jacqueline doing today?

    On top of all that, I got notification that Owner online magazine and @bossfitmag were out today.

    So I smelled a rat. Too much for one day – Chris should change his birthday.

    But when you get to his age – you start to realise that birthdays are for spreading – about a week for 39 year olds (if you believe that one) and – at least – a month for when you get to Tom Peters & my age.

    Everyday’s a birthday. Let’s celebrate all our birthdays – and all our collective generosities. They prove our spirits soar.

    As for the freaks, weirdos, misfits, heretics, odd-balls, Irish, zany entrepreneurial types – they should join up their own movement and elect the renegade Brogan to speak out in somewhere like Cork.

    He’s is a good guy isn’t he.
