It was tough whittling down the entries to just three people who will appear here and three blogs that I’ll post for. Seriously, if you are in need of some fresh blogs to read, you should be clicking on the names in the comments.
I’ve contacted the winners, so if you haven’t heard from me, I am sorry to disappoint you. There were no bad entries. I thought it would only take two days for me to decide who to pick, but it ended up taking nearly a week.
So, we can all look forward to seeing our first guest blogger take the stage in a few weeks!
Okay, today’s blog is short and sweet…but that’s for a good reason!
Everyone here obviously loves writing blogs, or commenting on blogs, or stalking on blogs, or trolling on blogs, or whatever else you can do with blogs.
But hopefully, most of us are a bit more rounded than just blogging in our spare time. I think doing lots of other stuff actually makes you a better blogger.
I like to do a few things with myself. First of all, I’m a game player. (Note, that’s not sports, but games.) I love games of all kinds…except for Uno…and Cranium. But I will giggle like a little girl if I can get three people to play Settlers of Catan with me…and then I start dishing the pain. I try to get my wife to play video games with me, but usually creates more problems than marital togetherness. I even created my own strategy board game last year. It’s still in “beta” mode. Not ready for sale. Yep, I’m a nerd.
But, I’m an outdoorsy nerd. While my wife and I are by no means athletes, we fancy ourselves pretty tough when it comes to nature. We like to camp and hike, which I know sound like pretty pointless activities since the invention of houses and Segways. We’re so into hiking, that on our trip to Colorado a few weeks ago, we could barely restrain ourselves and went hiking a mere few hours after arriving. Worst hike of our lives.
And my wife and I are both pretty fancy in the kitchen. But we’ve discovered we can’t actually cook together. Neither of us trusts the other’s culinary instincts. She’s got me constantly second guessing myself as she asks me, “What the crapcakes are you doing?” every ten seconds. One of our biggest tiffs ever was over how I make potatoes. But my results are almost always scrumptrulescent…the secret ingredient is the taste of victory in defying my wife’s expectations.
So this post is short, so you can spend less time reading blogs, and more time doing one of your other hobbies! But not until you tell me three things you do outside of blogging. Ready? Go…
