Be My Guest!!

Well hey there! Welcome to my blog. Please make yourself at home, ladies and gentlemen. Have a look around, and be sure you pick out a bedroom. There's only 20 of you registered here, so the rest of you will have to head over to the check-in counter if you really want to get involved.

Because... I just made my very own Blog Award (see above)!! Hooray!! In honor of my 20th follower (and yes that doesn't seem like much but come on, a few months ago it was 2) I've decided that I want to delve into the wild and wooley world of guest blogging.

So... anyone up for it? I do plan to ask people individually, but I did just give out an award so frankly, I'd just like to see who's interested. If you would like to write a guest post for me, please consider the following:

1. This blog is all about finding the extraordinary in the ordinary. So it's fairly general, but typically there's gotta be some sort of takeaway that makes my readers think "Wow, I'm glad I read that." (oh no, now I'm going to wonder if my readers are actually thinking that!)
2. I'm not the most technologically-blessed person so if you have tons of imbedded videos and stuff you have to be willing to help me post it. :)
3. You do have to follow my blog. Come on, you've gotta be at least nominally committed to the idea of reading me before and after I subject my readers to you.
4. Perhaps, just maybe, you would consider inviting me to be a guest blogger on your site?

Well, that's mainly it. If you're interested, please post a comment below and I'll email you. If you're one of those people who hasn't set up your email address in Blogger yet, please check out the tutorial at GoodNCrazy (This is where I learned). I tell ya, if you've ever wondered why no one responds back to you, this is the reason why.

Well ok, that's about it. I hope you like my Be My Guest Award, at least enough to want to earn it. :)


  1. And now you are at 21. Have a great weekend.

  2. 22- I'm a believer in you follow, I follow!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  3. And now you have 23! Great idea too! If I thought I had anything extraordinary to write I'd volunteer. Pressure, pressure, I can't think. LOL

  4. What a great idea to host other blogs for a post. Have you done it before or is this the first time?
    I don't know that I have EVER written anything that actually inspired a reader. Let me look and see if I could actually think of something worth reading.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, I would love to have you anytime.

  5. Ack, my Wordpress sign-in isn't working. Anyway, I'm follower 25! :-) I like the idea of occasional guest blogs and have been thinking about doing that myself. I'll look around yours more this week!

  6. How generous!! I love your 'mission statement'... its a great motivator!


  7. Hello fellow SITSta! I need your help!

    Could you vote for me in Iron Cupcake?

    (I am campaigning for votes….because I put a lot of time and effort into this)

    If there is anything I can do for you in the future don’t hesitate to ask!

  8. congratulations on your kick-ass award!!


An Extraordinary Comment just for me? Hooray!

When you comment, I get an email. Then I hit "reply." If your email says "noreply-comment" I get sad. Check out this tutorial and set yourself up so I can write back to you!
