I have been doing this blogging thing for a month or so. I think it might be time for me to branch out a bit. I want to do so many things with it. I want to review and beta read and throw my opinion out there. I feel like I have made a couple of solid contacts in the blogging world (Can you hear me yelling Bells, Judi and Colette, I bow down to thee). I have read about a zillion blogs and seen what they have to offer. I want that. You would think this would be simple huh? It’s not. I have no clue how to go about it. You see, I don’t work in that world. I’m at the other far end of the spectrum. I don’t stay at home all day and I don’t work with access to a computer the majority of the time. I cannot read a book within a day unless it’s a weekend, and even then its sketchy. I have two kids, two dogs, two cats, four frogs and a husband *sigh* someone always needs me for something. I am a fast reader though and can certainly read on a deadline if need be. I worry though that because I simply don’t have the kind of time these awesome other bloggers do, that I won’t stand a chance. Add to that the fact that these ladies are TIGHT. I mean they all know each other and have for what sounds like a long time. That’s right bloggers I am stalking your twitter accounts 🙂 . It’s like they have been blogging together since internet was first invented, HA.
I was watching an episode of The New Adventures of Old Christine last night (LOVE that show) and it totally hit my feelings on the head. Christine was talking to the rich mommies at her son’s school. She wanted into their club really badly, they ignored her. They were mean and snooty (though that has NOT happened to me, most bloggers are really very nice to me when I bug them). She was on the outside looking in and talking to the rich ladies maid. Oh yeah, in this scenario I would be the maid. Because well, I am one. Point being, she wanted in but was on the outside. I am not a writer, so I don’t fit in there. I can’t really contribute to the conversations they have. Most of the time I just listen and try to absorb. My opinions are strong but my writing skills vary on how passionate I feel on the subject. Bloggers are my best bet here. Over the course of the past month I have read some reviews that I thought I could NEVER top. However there were a few that I thought the opposite.
So bloggers out there…LET ME IN, YOUR SUPER COOL…I’M COOL TOO I PROMISE!! 🙂
