Blog Challenge -- The Results Show

>> Monday, September 6, 2010

Last week, I shared with my blog audience a challenge issued by a so-called "friend" of mine allegedly to help me overcome my writer's block. Of course, the topic of this challenge was embarrasing and egotistical, so I felt compelled to share the pain around my blogging friends. Today, I am posting my answer to the topic, "Ten Reasons You Should Read My Blog." (While only marginally, I found the topic slightly more palatable than the alternative, "Why I Write?" however I let my readers select which topic they prefer for themselves.)

Below this post, you will find a link tool that allows anyone who wrote a post in response to my challenge to share a link to their blog. Please take a look at the responses that have been linked up and see what these other blog writers have written. I've asked the bloggers to link up by September 8th, but I'm sure a few will be early and a few will be late.

In the meantime, please enjoy my forced attempt to egotistically explain to you why you should read my blog.

Reason Number One:  I am a secret superhero that does battle against the forces of Entropy and Chaos in a never-ending struggle to save our planet.

Reason Number Two:  While attempting to entertain you, I always try to take the time to educate as well.  I provide helpful lists about things like Painting Rules, how to tell if you are a packrat, how to handle Potties in Foreign Lands, and dozens of other useful tips you won't find anywhere else.

Reason Number Three:  I am not afraid to share with you some of parenthood's most embarrasing moments.  (There are way too many posts for me to even try to link here.)  You'll either feel at home, or feel superior. Either way, it's a win-win for you.

Reason Number Four:  Someday, I am going to publish a get-rich-quick scheme that will actually make someone a whole lot of money.  Maybe that someone will be you.

Reason Number Five:  On any given day, I really just might make you laugh out loud -- or my guest posters or shout-outs will. 

Reason Number Six:  My husband thinks blogging might be what is keeping me from babbling Toddler-speak and eating bonbons all day, so I really need you to keep from talking to an empty internet over the sound of crickets.

Reason Number Seven:  I break out in random fits of football.  You might find this a good thing, or you might find it an excuse to take a break from my prolific blog entries.

Reason Number Eight:  I can make you feel normal, whatever that means.

Reason Number Nine:  Because I said so.  And so did my mother.

Reason Number Ten:  Where else are you able to watch in real-time blogging the story of one woman slowly losing her mind to motherhood?

There you have it.  I hope you enjoyed it.  I would say I hope you will read my blog, but I guess you are already doing that, aren't you?

Blog writers, please link your posts using the LinkyTool below. In the first block, please insert your name or blog title, which topic you chose, and whatever else it is you would like us to know about your post. In the next box, please include a link directly to your blog entry. (Please link directly to your post and not to the homepage of your blog.) If you are having trouble with this form for any reason, please let me know and I will try to help you link your blog.

Von, I'm so happy you stopped by.

John, I will say that you do go a long way to making me feel normal, though.
