I’m away for a while over summer, and while I can post-date as many posts as I can write, and while I am surely capable of a prodigious output if I try and set my mind to it, I’d rather not. So I have posts, but not a usual number. And I was wondering how to keep my blog busy, and stop everybody completely losing interest, and quench the appetites of all those three voracious DBAH readers I have – and I happened to find a post by sulz which I missed at the time she posted it.
“I thought YOU could do a GUEST POST on bloggerdygook! YOU, yes, YOU! You who has a blog, You who doesn’t have a blog, You! Well, not just any You, but at least the You I know. As long as I know who you are, you’re good to do a guest post here for any day for the month of July!”
And I guess that pretty much sums it up! She’s had a lot of response and I don’t know if I’ll get any at all, but if you feel like helping me out here then it’s a wonderful chance to promote your blog (wonderful? Well, OK, it’s a good chance, then – I have about 300 hits a day) and if you have no blog, well, then it’s a wonderful chance to show the world just what a sweet person you really are! Also, I will be indebted to you. Don’t you want me indebted to you? And I’m surely worthy. Aren’t I? You know I am… ahem. OK. I’ll get on with it.
If my charming pitch has convinced you (I feel like I’m on Dragons’ Den) then you’re free to write about pretty much anything. If it’s vaguely mental health-related, so much the better, but if it’s about your dreams and ambitions, or reasons England should become a republic, or why you love me and my blog so much (yes, my mood is still floating in the clouds, and currently I am mightily optimistic) – so long as it’s somewhere between four hundred and a thousand words long, you’re good to go. And, er… the catch is the deadline, and the deadline is the 8th July. I go away the next day…
But I have full confidence that any of my wonderful readers who choose to assist me and take up the gauntlet I have now thrown down will be entirely capable of writing a small quantity by then! (Cue charming grin from Suzy and shaking heads from everybody who knows that she talks like this all too often in real life.)
