Too soon? Is there a post quota I’m supposed to meet before the prestigious title of ‘blogger’ is earned? There was no application or interview. There were no qualifications listed and that’s good because I ain’t got none. Ok, so maybe I was editor of my high school yearbook. Maybe I wrote briefly for our local newspaper. Maybe I majored in communications in college, don’t worry I have no degree to show for it. Don’t act like you’re not impressed.
BUT, if there were an interview, this is what I imagine the questions would be:
1. Do you have shit to write about?
2. Do you have shit to write about that anyone gives a crap to read?
3. Will you work for free?
Yes, yes I think so, and yes! I’m hired! Since I don’t get a paycheck, my compensation comes in the form of ‘likes’, ‘shares’ and an occasional comment that something I said at least slightly rang true or entertained someone. I write because it’s how I process … and it wards off insanity. Also, my private Facebook posts were getting a bit long and probably annoying my friends who don’t give 2 shits what my kids did today (I can’t blame them, there are days I don’t want to know what they did).
Soooooooo … thank you to the 97 of you who have been reading my posts thus far. Thanks even more for your replies about your kids and families being as whacked-out as mine. Hopefully I’m helping some of you moms not feel like you’re doing a crappy job, or at least that someone else is doing as crappy a job as you are.
