I used to write a lot more about my daily life on the blog. Actually, this thing started as a personal blog, and I talked about coffee, and sometimes my siblings (they’re awesome), and sometimes really embarrassing stories. But books are a huge part of my life, and after a while they took over the blog. That’s fine, but I still have a couple of people out there who request ‘normal stories.’
Behold, an email conversation with my sister yesterday on this very topic.
ginny: you are hilarious. i want to see some 'regular' life stories. like you used to. so how about posting about the sounders game [I went to a Sounders v. DC United game last night]? LOVES you bunches of bananas!
Me: I don't post about 'regular' life stuff because I don't know what to say anymore. Like, I don't know if it's funny or why anyone would want to read it. You know? If you gave me a way to spin it I might...Hugs!
ginny: just say: my sister demanded a 'real life' update. or if you want to post about the sounders game, you could say that although you like posting things about yummy recipes, you also like posting things about yummy looking males (cuz who doesn't??). and you could link to the cute guys w/ cats, hot guys w/ books, and then segue into the sounders game, and how yummy some of them are (cuz didn't you tell me that one of them was an ex-model?) and how you got to see them LIVE!!! easy peasy lemon squeezy.
ginny: and after reading that, i realize: 'why am i not an agent?' *big smile*
There you have it, folks. Go check out Cute Boys with Cats, Hot Guys Reading Books, and Freddie Ljungberg, a Seattle Sounders star and former underwear model. If, you know, you want to. But my sister is pretty sure you’ll want to. *le sigh*
And, because I couldn't resist - Library Old Spice guy. Ah-MAZ-ing!
