In Which I Am, For The Fourth Time, Not Lisa Conrad
Okay. Considering that I’ve now officially received three emails asking me the same question, I’m going to publicly make the biggest personal announcement that I’ve ever made on this blog:
I am NOT Lisa Conrad.
Two months ago I got an email from a reader asking me if I was, I found it funny and endearing so I promptly replied to them and let them know that I am definitely not Lisa Conrad.
If you follow me on Twitter you might have seen me and Lisa make a few jokes about this.
Then about three weeks later I got another email asking the same question. Again: laughed it off, made a joke, and informed them that I wasn’t Lisa (and that they weren’t the first to make this assumption).
A few hours ago, my inbox did its little blinking trick on my phone and, lo and behold, looking up at me was the age-old question yet again:
“Are you Lisa Conrad?”
And considering the fact that I once read a statistic which revealed that for every comment or question that someone asks there are at least 50 other people who are thinking the same thing, I’m guessing that’s its probably best to make a quick post about this.
So, just for the record: I’m not Lisa Conrad. I know that Lisa and I share some writing habits and our tone sounds a little similar but that’s all it is: a similarity. A great similarity and one that I am deeply flattered by, but that’s it. Really though, being a Lisa Conrad fan-girl myself, I am nothing if not totally awestruck by this association.
I had the good fortune of meeting and chatting with Lisa at Zain’s social media day event and, honestly, the woman is an absolute delight (like a perfect London scone). Seriously, meeting Lisa Conrad made me wish I was Lisa Conrad.
But, unfortunately, I’m not. Really. I wish I was. But I’m not.
So far, you’re all just stuck with little ol’ me: Owl “Not Lisa Conrad” Olive.
All my love!
