It’s almost midnight.
On the 4th of July.
I meant to write this post last week.
I’m a procrastinator.
I’m currently riding a giant Tesla coil high (more on that in tomorrow’s post on how we celebrated the 4th of July.
I think I’m back in the 1980’s (you’ll see why tomorrow. It’s awesome. Trust me.)
Minus that whole “I have two children who just experienced their latest bedtime ever and it’s likely to bite us in the butt.”
I recently (Sunday night) switched my Writing with Chaos blog to WordPress.org – so I’ve been a bit lost in plugin craziness.
I wanted to celebrate by moving Dances with Chaos too… only the dot com address is taken.
I’d have to go to Dancing with Chaos.
It feels…. weird.
So I’m learning the ropes with my writing blog, but this one could soon follow.
I mean.. DANCING with Chaos? It’s not a finite verb like “dances” (data supplied by Bobbi, who knows grammar stuff I’ve forgotten).
I’d have to change a lot of urls, photos, and titles. My email wouldn’t match.
Am I crazy? Or is this a blogging right of passage?
Last week I asked what my readers wanted to do to celebrate, and the Gift of a Guest Post won the overwhelming majority. So if you’re interested in either guest posting here, or having me guest post for you, be sure to leave a comment saying so.
Wait. I’m not finished with you yet.
I’m bursting with curiosity about those who read me.
Share a link to YOUR blog in the comments, of a post you want me (and everyone else stopping by to say hi) to read. It can be from this week, or three years ago. I’m not picky. I will be visiting each one and leaving a comment.
Oh, I’m not done.
I want to hear the BIGGEST “What the frak?” moment you’ve either experienced or had the pleasure to hear about and go “Thank god it wasn’t me.”
Finally, if you’re a lurker, at least say hi and tell me what keeps you hiding in the background or why you read this blog (I am very guilty of lurking with many of you, because I had commenting from a mobile device; touchscreens are evil).
Is it my sarcastic wit? Is it because you’re related to me? Is it so you can say “Thank god I’m not there anymore!” or to remind you of the tiny moments so often forgotten?
Finally, to reward a few who were curious about me, I’ve filled out a partial fact sheet of “Me in 2011”. This is an identical form (a spare blank print out) to the one I filled out when I was 13– only the answers and handwriting have changed.
Feel free to share any random facts (listed on this sheet) about yourself as well.
Thanks for making my blog such an awesome experience, sometimes the only thing adding sanity to my life.
So please, share as much (or as little) about the requested information above to help celebrate.
And if you’re on a mobile device while your children wrap themselves around your legs as they screech at the top of their lungs? You can at least hit “like” to let me know you stopped by. 🙂
Or tweet me your response.
