I’m so excited for the interview on WDIV channel 4 news where I’m interviewed by Karen Drew in regards to Mommy Blogging! I think it’s funny that I was the one interviewed about making money from blogging, seeing as…I don’t make as much as a certain other local blogger with a fantasticker(and yes, that’s a real word in my book!) blog whom, and I’m not one to count other peoples blog dollars, but I can completely assume without the ass part, that she makes WAY more money than I do on my little blog. But still…how exciting to be interviewed in the comfort of my own home. It took me a bit to realize she was actually conducting the interview though because there were no bright lights and no announcement of “Rolling one, two, three”. So I might have spewed a little diarrhea before the realization struck me that we weren’t just having a pleasant conversation while the camera dude got everything ready. He was ready. Oops, my bad. So, if I offended anyone, sorry. The price you have to pay for having a blogger in the family. If we don’t write about it on our blogs, we say it by mistake on local television. Nice.
I’m sure that there is going to be some lashing out at me because of some things my kids said about time being taken away from them due to my blogging…which, I don’t get. Because I’m ALWAYS at the kitchen table on the computer. And, isn’t the kitchen the hub of family activity?
So, in my never ending search for ideas on what else I should be doing on this blog, besides what I’m doing, I’ve heard from like two people already…I need to be edgier and a little more gossipy. Which…I can do. Only, my family won’t be allowed here anymore. If my mom wasn’t of delicate constitution already, I probably could make her teeter…heck full on push her…over that edge. She’d do the Fred Sanford grasping his heart/hand to the heaven impression, “Here I come”.
I feel like a lot of the blogs that do giveaways and reviews are the highest in traffic. Which…is so NOT me. Doing giveaways is WAY too much work and I’m WAY too lazy. Besides, as you all know, I prefer writing as opposed to testing out products. I have been known to test out a sex toy or two…
Speaking of testing out products…
I could talk about this really freaking awful canker sore that I have. I was testing out this new Colgate whitening toothpaste for Collective Bias…which, I got paid to do. My toothbrush slipped and jabbed me into the gums, leaving a horrible gash which turned into the biggest, most painful canker sore this poor POOR mommy blogger has ever known. But on a good note, that Colgate whitening toothpaste…it works. My teeth are AT LEAST a shade whiter. And it tastes good, too!! You know me, it doesn’t matter how much money or how many tubes of toothpaste…or sex toys…I receive. If I don’t like it, I’m going to bitch about it! But ouch, my mouth.
Wanna know a little fantasy I have for my blog? Imma gonna tell ya. One day, I hope my blog is popular enough that when I say boys wearing girls skinny jeans should get super wedgies and be put in a corner because they look absolutely ridiculous…that the trend disappears. Same with the pants on the ground fashion that is all the rage, which…I’ll never understand. Really? I guess I should stop complaining about my kids because…they don’t dress like that. They have other fashion catastrophe issues but nothing like those kids. But then again, I’m usually the clothing buyer…for at least three of the five in my house! Lame, I know. My point though…I would like my voice to be heard. Is that so horrible? But that’s just one mind fart…er…fantasy. I have more. I’ll share them with you at another random type post time.
I feel like I should have this really amazingly thought out and written blogpost for today, considering the interview. But I don’t. This is what is on my mind so I’m laying it out here, for you to read.
Now it’s time to do what Mommy Bloggers all over the world despise…
fold laundry…if I can pull myself away from Twitter.
