So my friend the grifter, Miss Teen USSR nominated me for this thing called a “Blog Tour”. est. 1975 nominated the Teen Beauty Queen (among other fab blogs) you can check it out here. Like a great pyramid scheme, it is clearly expanding my horizons on the other most fabulous writers out there slogging it out on their laptops posting blogs that make me laugh, make me cry and make me think. But before I share my favorite blogs, here are some answers to the obligatory questionnaire which will explain more about who I am and why I can’t stop writing.
PS – Of course I had to do this right away because I am an anal-retentive type-A control freak that can’t stand it when there’s something that needs to get done.
1. What Am I Working On?
Besides my day job, I’m trying to make a more concerted effort to promote The Rock and Roll Mom. I’m not sure why as there really isn’t a grand plan in place. I think its because I’m narcissistic. (See what I did there? I hyperlinked my own blog while writing a post for the same aforementioned blog. Raging ego alert!)
2. How Does Your Work Differ From Other Work in Your Genre?
Its a disjointed, stream of consciousness collection of my random thoughts. The only thing that ties it all together is me. See? Narcissist.
3. Why Do I Write What I Do?
I’m bossy and I over share. The perfect combination for a narcissistic blog writer.
This is what I look like when I’m hard at work. But imagine smaller boobs, hunched posture and stray hairs popping out of that perfectly coiffed bun.
4. How Does Your Writing Process Work?
In the shower, falling asleep, driving – all places where I can’t actually write something down is usually when the inspiration strikes and then I write the blog in my head. I run to the computer dripping wet, climb out of bed, pull the car over and I forget everything I thought of. If I just sit at my computer waiting for an idea to come, I’m completely screwed. Did I lift the veil a little too much there?
Three Blogs I Recommend:
I am a MAJOR fan of the two people I mentioned at the beginning of this blog. They are funny and they are authentic. So do yourself a favor and check them out. In the meantime, here are 3 more writers that deserve your love:
The Queen of Green – Lindsay Coulter is a guardian of the planet. She shares amazing tips and ideas for ways to live a greener, happier life. I have a secret crush on her. She too was a VancouverMom.ca Top 30 Mom Blogger this year and I was so starstruck, I couldn’t talk to her.
Robin Esrock (formerly Modern Gonzo) is a real legit published writer now, but you won’t be disappointed if you subscribe to his travel blog. He’s funny and his quirky view of the world and the importance of travel is super fun.
The Adventures of Fanny P. I love to read Fanny’s posts. Not just because she lives in Italy and I’m silently living vicariously, but because her writing is real and authentic. The heartbreak she writes about is real and true and your heartbreaks for her. When she’s happy and grateful, you remember the blessings in your life.
So that’s it. The Queen of Green, Robin Esrock and Fanny P – you’re up. At least you don’t have to pour a bucket of ice water over your head. Oh yeah, and send me $100 each.
