Introducing… M, the Guest Blogger

A long, long time ago in a suburb not all that far away, S and I were married on this very day. Back then, we thought we were busy and tired — coordinating wedding details, and finding a new cheap apartment to move our stuff so that we might actually be able to live in the same place when we returned from the honeymoon, and working full-time jobs.

Just wait until all this madness settles down after the wedding, we thought. Then we’ll have some time to relax.

Ha.

I think it just goes to show how young we were and how oh-so-very-not-busy-really. Time is one of the most precious commodities to me right now, and that’s exactly what my oldest son M has given me as an anniversary gift. He suggested that I turn over the blog to him and take a little breather for a week or so. That’s a pretty excellent gift. 

So without further ado, I’d like to introduce my first ever guest blogger who just happens to be my son, M.

Hi. I’m M. This week will be my parent’s anniversary, and so I’m giving my mom the week off. I’m just that nice.

All right. Here’s how I think blogging works:

1. Acquire a computer. Obviously. Oddly enough, not many bloggers mess this up.

2. Figure out a topic.  You want a topic that you can go on and on about, but one that you can summarize into a formal essay.

3. Clear your mind. Find your zen. Tricky with Louie the Wonder Pup licking your face.

Louie in my face

4. Type up a rough draft on Word or some other word processor. Stay in zen mode.

5. Let mom do the technical copy/paste/wordpress stuff.

6. Eat a snack. Maybe two… or ten.

How do you blog? Do you think that this is a good formula (especially the eating part)? I’ll be here all week, so any tips are greatly appreciated.

    Happy Anniversary Joan! Keep up the good work, M!

  4. Joan: Happy anniversary! Enjoy your break. 🙂

    M: More snacking, definitely. Also, if I get too zen I fall asleep so I usually try to get angry and Set The Internet To Rights. Lots of mileage there.

  5. Nice guest post! Catchy, well-written bullets are a great way to go. Mentioning food is a plus. Your time and devotion is a great gift to your mom and dad for their anniversary.
