Okay, I admit it. I’m totally utterly confused – and Mommy Bloggers did it.
My friend Kerry called me up one day to ask me for help because she wanted to start a blog. Note: she called me. Already old school. Of course I took her call because she is one of the few I will actually answer the phone for. It is way faster to get me via text, tweet, or Facebook or the lovely quickly becoming old school – email!
So I gave her a few pointers and set her on her way into the world of Mommy Blogging. Of course she put a genius spin on hers – Houses! She is HouseTalkN! Smarty pants.
Lo and behold she went and blew it out of the roof, quickly becoming a very fancy and well loved blogger! Huh? Yep, she far surpassed me in the blog world. She gets more comments, she has more friends, she does give-aways, and link parties, whatever they are.
Today – this morning – early morning – she wakes me up out of a deep glorious slumber – via text! I get the WALOOP sound of the text that pulls me out of a dream. I reach over to check it, hoping it’s not an emergency. No. It’s Kerry.
“Here is is. Your first link party! Link up your dance call to MyLifeWithKids.com Finding the Funny.”
Huh? Hello? You just woke me up from a deep slumber.
“You sleep with your phone? Whore.”
Yes. Yes I do. Okay okay, I will link… I will link. I’m linking! I’m linking!
“Then add yourself to YeahWrite! ”
So I got up and in a very groggy state, pulled my laptop into bed and started searching for the links Kerry sent me to. My fiance asked what I was doing. ”I’m going to a linky party without the drinky part.” His response was just like mine had been – huh?
But I did it! I linked. So now it’s your turn. Go to this link - http://yeahwrite.me/51-open/ and scroll down until you see my smiling face! I’m holding a pussy cat. Then click on me!
Then Kerry sends me (oh yeah, it’s not over there) links to her other blogs. WHAT? Her other blogs? Oh yeah. She’s reposting on all these Mommy Bloggers sites. She’s on Bloggy Moms! So I go to make a comment and I have to register and then it asks me what I blog about.

ARE YOU STUMPED? I was! Excluding only like one or two things on that list I say yes. Then I found the “EVERYTHING” one and I guess I have to go with that one. Unless you can enlighten me.
I love that Kerry was the one who CALLED me (yes, on the phone) to ask me how to start her blog and now she’s got me wondering what in the world I write about. Me? Write? How about #BLOGGERSDANCE – btw Kerry started that too.
I’m going back to bed. Please comment about what I write about. Or is it Everything?
