So I kind of screwed myself over today.
As part of the 20-Somthing Bloggers Big Blog Swap, here’s Ben from No Ordinary Rollercoaster. I’m sure you’re already a fan of his blog, so I probably don’t need to tell you to get over there and read my post. Enjoy!
You see, today is the 20-Something Bloggers Big Blog Swap. That means that over the course of the day, over fifty bloggers have traded spaces in order to cause pandemonium throughout the blogosphere. You know…someone will sit down for their morning coffee and skim through the GoogleReader (I KNOW you don’t all read every post!), and they’ll be all, “I’m gonna read No Ordinary Rollercoaster now. That Ben’s so dreamy and smart.” ’cause that’s what people are like. Then, when they go to read my blog, they’ll find a post from Sarah and they’ll be all, “WHAT?! This is MADNESS!” whilst spitting their coffee all over their laptops.
Doesn’t that sound fun?
But here’s the thing. Three months ago, I got the crazy idea that I wanted to buy a house. So I did. I bought a house. Me. At age 23. A house. Soak that in.
It became officially mine on Friday so I clearly spent the entire weekend (and the two weeks leading up to it) packing, cleaning, moving, and sending my dog (the main source of content for my blog) away for a vacation. At some point yesterday, I realized, OH wouldn’t it be nice to sit down and write something lovely for Sarah that her readers might actually appreciate versus them throwing rotten pears (they cause more damage than tomatoes) at my face.
Let me just say that considering the internet isn’t getting hooked up until this afternoon, it didn’t go well. So this is your consolation prize: a blog post outlining my shortcomings. You must be thrilled.
Sarah: I apologize for stinking up your blog for a day.
Sarah’s readers: I apologize for making you waste a click.
To all: now that I have moved and my pooch is coming home this afternoon, I promise I will be a better blogger. I’m also sorry that my lousy post has stunk up the reputation of The Big Blog Swap.
I’ll have to wait for the next swap to make someone spit out their coffee.06.30.08 in Uncategorized
