Tuesday I admitted to you, dear readers, my blog identity crisis brought on by my blog envy. (Is there a blog therapist out there? I need to lie down on your virtual couch.)
In the aforementioned post, I mentioned four of my favorite funny bloggers, so you can imagine my delight when I turned the computer on this morning only to see my mug on not one but TWO of these favorite blogs. It’s like my wildest blogging dreams are coming true! I pinched myself to make sure I was actually awake.
I’m on Go Jules Go!
My bloggy BFF, Jules, is awesome. So awesome that she sends her loyal readers slap bracelets. For free. No strings attached. Well, maybe one string. She does like to receive photos of the slap bracelets in action, so to speak. When my slap bracelets arrived in the mail, they were accompanied by a note written on neon green paper (my favorite color throughout middle school, only to be replaced by teal in high school). References to Bon Jovi, J-Lo, and nicknames were in abundance. Jules is like the perfect sixth grade pen pal I never had.
I owed Jules big time, so I took my slap bracelets on vacation with me. Here’s a sneak preview of what you’ll see on Go Jules Go:
So take a walk/click over to Go Jules Go’s Summer Is Hot and So Are You magazine. You won’t be disappointed.
Vote for me on Childhood Relived!
Angie, a fellow child of the 80s, has a nostalgic, hysterical blog called Childhood Relived. This blog is chock full of everything you ever remembered about being a kid. Did you ever wear burnt orange, corduroy culottes? So did Angie! Did you have a crush on John Cusack or Joey McIntyre from NKOTB? Yup, Angie did, too! Do you have fond memories of your banana seat bicycle? Angie had one!
I entered this photo, along with some other oldies but goodies, in her blog’s Dynomite! school photo contest. I’m hoping that my sweet smile, crooked glasses, and permed hair will capture the heart of her readership. But just in case one of the other
poor souls entrants starts pulling ahead, I’m asking you to go over to Childhood Relived’s Dynomite! School Photo Contest and vote for me! Winning this contest would make my awkward decade years seem almost worth it. Almost.
(Disclaimer: Thank you to all my foodie and locavore friends for allowing me to forgo my usual subject matter for a couple days. My itch to become a humor blogger has been scratched and I fully expect to resume my posts about food and locality pronto.)
