Good for you! I've been thinking of teaching a blogging class at our new local "free university." Back in the days when I worked for a software company, I taught our customers how to use our customer-only website. So I figured it would be easy to do.

However, after explaining my blog to a zillion people, I'm not so sure that many people know what the heck a blog is in the first place. And those who do are already blogging.

I linked you out of love for your writing - the reciprocal ass-kissing was just an added bonus.


I love all the reciprocal ass kissing. *smooch*

I always want to spread the word about blogging, but then I get desperately afraid someone I know (and purposefully haven't told) will discover mine.

Keyboard Diarrhea is the best kind!

Anne-Marie: I guess I just got lucky, they knew what blogs were, at least in concept, but were fuzzy on who gets to blog and how.

Gooch: And I feel the same! Big, fat gooch smooch coming your way ;-)

Faith: What, you mean like Evil Ex? He sounds so clueless, you could probably tattoo your URL on his forehead, he still wouldn't get it.

Andrea: Get back to class! (Just looking out for my niece here).

Another tip: be sure to explicitly mention "ass-kissing" in your blog. This can get you additional hits from certain Googlers... :)

Class? It was 10:47 PM!!!

about me

  • It is good to be the Empress
    ... but, y'know, it's kinda hectic. I blog when I can. Right now, my day's divided this way: keep kids from screaming (8 hrs); keep son from killing daughter (6 hrs); avoid diet (4 hrs); sleep (2 hrs); lay awake fretting (2 hrs); give up and Web surf for a while (1 hr); think about waking hubby for sex (1/2 hr); ponder my career options (15 mins); shudder, begin blog post (15 mins); resume efforts to keep kids from screaming ...
