Calling for guest bloggers….

Last fall I was talking with my mom and telling her how I would like to create another blog and have people share their views. Obviously I know that’s why people have blogs but I wanted to have it be for people who might not want to post something on their own blog, especially if they have family and friends reading it and have to be careful with what they say.

Then I decided that I could just do this on the blog I have now. I know I have a “small” blog and don’t get thousands of hits a day but I would like it to be a place where others can have their say and share their experiences.

I don’t expect people to knock down the doors of this here little blog to guest post but if it’s possible I would eventually like to have a guest post up once a week. That’s my goal anyway. You don’t have to be a parent or even have your own blog to write a guest post.

You can write about ANYTHING you want, mother-in-law issues, music, your obsession with The Real Housewives (that might just be me), your kids, something your kids have done that drove you crazy, a short story, a poem, your favorite recipe, some arsehole, anything.

I’m known to curse like crazy although I’m not that bad in front of the hummingbird and she’s been such a mimic lately so I have to be careful. I try to tame my language on my blog (I don’t always succeed though) but you don’t need to censor yourself if you want to write a post.

If there’s something you really want to get off your chest but would like to remain anonymous, just let me know and my lips are sealed.

You can email me and put ‘guest post’ in the subject line. Also make sure to let me know if you want to go under a pseudonym. Maybe something like Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Okay, so you don’t have to go under that name. :^) If you want me to include a brief bio then make sure to add it to the email but a bio isn’t necessary.

So if you love to write and want to guest post, drop me an email….

    Hmmm…I’m kinda scared to start my own blog, but maybe I’d get over it if I tried the guest blog thing. I’ll think about it. BTW, I think my daughter was about the same age as yours when I realized I had to watch what I said around her, and I learned it the hard way (fair warning…I’m gonna use the “real” F-word):

    I was backing out of a parking space with my little toddler strapped into her car seat when I had to throw on the brakes because someone was RACING past me thru the parking lot (speeding doesn’t quite describe what this driver was doing). I resisted the temptation to yell my usual derogatory remark at the person, paused for a moment so’s not to get slammed into and heard a chirpy little voice from the backseat say “Fucking IDIOT!” Uhm…Oops? Yeah. Not my proudest mom moment. BUT…at least it happened in the privacy of our own car, as all good cursing rants should. 🙂

      I still slip and say fuck at times, like when I ran into the door frame and it felt like I broke my foot and my little girl was right there. Oops! She’s been repeating almost everything we say so I’m surprised she’s not going around saying it yet. Maybe she’s waiting until my MIL visits. 😉

      You have to guest post sometime! You’re so awesome with your Unconventional Military Spouses page. I keep on meaning to write something for that but then my brain turns to mush when I try.
