|Sharing the load|
I was part way through a post on .... well, never mind, you'll find out ;) when up popped a post from Multiple Mum at And then there were four who is guest posting at The Mummy Autobiography for Miss Pink.
(is it just me or does that sound like an opening paragraph for an Enid Blyton Faraway Tree book ;)
Anyhow, not to stray too far from the point!
I see guest posts pop up from time to time and have idly queried their purpose.
Possibly the blogger hosting the guest post is going on holiday or something and doesn't want a big gap between posts.
Possibly the guest poster writes a blog on a similar subject and has something relevant to say.
Possibly, but neither of those always seem to fit.
Ok, I don't mean that what they have to say isn't relevant, god, I really should THINK before I speak!
What I mean is that either or both blogs may not be about specific subjects and therefore, there is no direct link between the blogs.
Anyway, having read MM's guest post:
'It is surreal, but it is real. In an internet kind of way' - great title btw!
I felt like Newton when the apple fell from the tree and I got it!!!
It's another way of sharing great reads, I can be a little slow sometimes ;)
As the subject was on Internet friendships and how you sometimes picture a person when reading their blog it was, given my recent post, something I can really identify with.
There's an awful lot of sharing going on around the blogosphere, something that I think took me more by surprise than anything else (in a really GOOD way) - I was very hesitant when I started, was it all about numbers, everyman/woman for themselves, a fierce battle for the most readers, the biggest number of hits??
Well, yep, I'm not so naive that I don't think that goes on but I tend to steer well clear of that kind of stuff. I quite like my blog being of a size where I get to know people and I can answer comments without it turning into a full time job.
But, on a day to day level the people I've come across are only to happy to share their space, give credit where it's due and, in some cases, give other a place to post anonymously should there be something they need to share in confidence (you know who you are:).
Well, I LIKE!!
And I sometimes post rubbish so this could be a blog lifesaver for me...
And I'm a bit lazy sometimes so if someone wants to take a load off me then that all good too ;) ...
So, I'm off to ask a blog buddy if they would like to write a guest post for me.
Thanks MM and Miss Pink for helping me to, at long last, get it!
Oh, and I'm always available to guest post if you want to frighten off half your readership ;) I feel it's time I returned to the funny :)
