Oh, right, it’s probably my use of phrases like “dicking around” and posts like my now all too famous “Homemade Swear Words” or the time I wrote about feeding my dogs virgin blood… but in all fairness, really, I just want what’s best for dogs in the most ridiculous and pretentious manner possible. It probably doesn’t help that last month my most popular post was titled, “My husband wouldn’t stab me,” in which I detailed how I begged my husband to stab me on video. HEY! I did it for YOU. And there might have been something about a stab proof vest in there… I can’t be expected to remember all the things. But, regardless of their true reasons why, I have been declined by every blog network I’ve applied for. I usually get these really fabulous diplomatically vague answers about my content and numbers not being right for them Continue reading Dear Blogger Networks: Why Don’t You LIKE Me?
It might seem odd to have me, of all people, review a book written by the guy who started the Spartan Race. Truth be told, I’ve worked repeated with these guys over the last year. Why? Because prior to eight months ago, I was a runner. I ran the Tough Mudder and chronicled my journey right here on this blog. In fact, I was supposed to run the Spartan Race in just a few months. Things sure change quickly, don’t they? But, regardless of my ability to run or not, I am, in my heart, the very person this book was written for. I am the girl who thought I couldn’t do it, but wanted to so badly. And many of you may remember that I had my share of naysayers who told me I couldn’t do it. But I did. Now, I will admit that I’m still two chapters Continue reading My Doctors Said I’d Never Run Again, but it Doesn’t Mean They are Right: Spartan UP!
I’ve been blogging on this here blog for a long time now. Since 2008 if you really want to go back and listen to my immature and youthful ranting. It started as “Deployment Woes,” and was a dinky little blog I used more or less as a journal. It had cutesy pre-made and free blog backgrounds and banners made for Blogger and entirely reflected who I was: A young, stupid newlywed with a husband who was deployed. I’ve gone through a lot since then. Illness, a troubled deployment, an even more troubled marriage and then even worse illness. Through it all I kept on blogging. I wrote even when nobody read it. I have always used this place, my secret place, my super secret public journal, as a place to be unabashedly me. I sing in the shower and prefer Britney Spears and Katy Perry for the lovely echo effect. Continue reading I Don’t Have Cookies, But Can I Interest You in a Sarcastic Comment?
