UPDATE: I’m now booking guest posts into the second half of 2013. See below if interested!
RAMBLING and PREAMBLING
When I turned on my laptop this morning, I was greeted by this notice:
It’s a bit like being pregnant: I’m not sure if 100 days is long or short. It’s roughly equivalent to one trimester in human gestation, six lifespans of a female mosquito, and a nanosecond of an elephant’s pregnancy.
The subtitle of my book, Don’t Lick the Minivan, is “Things I Never Thought I’d Say to my Kids.” Keeping track of the unexpected, idiotic things I say is also the concept of a feature I occasionally run here at Ironic Mom called Whiteboard Wednesday.
CALL FOR GUEST POSTS
Today, I’m issuing a call for Guest Posts for Whiteboard Wednesday. Is there something bizarre that you’ve said to your kids? If you’re not a parent or would prefer not to write about your children, is there something strange you’ve said to nieces/nephews, colleagues, teachers, the Best Buy check-out guy, your pet?
REQUIREMENTS FOR GUEST POSTS
- contains a funny/bizarre line you said to someone
- is between 50-500 words
- is a humorous slice-of-life piece (feel free to refer to previous Whiteboard Wednesday posts to get an idea of the tone)
- includes a 50-word bio written in third person (with links, if you wish) and a photo of you
- (please note: you don’t need to be a blogger to participate…)
If you’re interested, please drop me an email at IronicMom(at)gmail(dot)com. Please put “Guest Post” in the header because I am exceptionally gifted at losing emails in folders and inboxes.
You don’t need to attach the post yet; I’ll assign you a date and a deadline…then you can get out your funny. When it’s done, I’ll format it, shove your bizarre phrase onto a whiteboard, and promote the guest post on my social media networks.
Hope to see you in my inbox.
May “Happy Monday” not be oxymoronic.
