Not to toot my own horn...

While reading Life of Bon recently I cam across this post. Inspired, I wrote my own version. There are things "most" people do. Meh. I'm not most people. Never have been....

Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I'm certain I'm an awesome friend and entertaining person. But...I might not be a successful blogger....

Reasons I might not be a successful blogger.
  1. I say strange things like: shan't, holy moly, sorry Charlie, Oh My Lanta, shut your face, etc.
  2. I also address people of all ages from toddlers to elderly as "ma'am", and "sir". It's respectful. I don't think you're old. I'm not talking to your mother/father/grandmother/grandfather. It's just good manners. 
  3. I make up my own words and expressions: shoopy,  wonky, bean wings, poop on a stick, stink on a stick, snotboogers, crap on a monkey, jzhoop, and boogety. (This is not an inclusive list. I make stuff up in the moment.)
  4. I think boogers, snot, and bathroom humor can be funny. (I'm a little juvenile/innocent in my humor preferences.)
  5. Clever lines and wit aren't what makes me laugh. Silly noises and funny faces get me rolling. 
  6. I am 29 and have no children nor do I feel ready/prepared/want them yet. 
  7. I rarely blog about school/teaching, even though it takes up the vast majority of my life and time. (If you didn't know...there are some incredible teacher blogs in the world. How the heck do they have time?!)
  8. I've never had alcohol. 
  9.  I love candy as much as children do. 
  10. I still dress up for Halloween. 
  11. There are cluttery piles all over the house and their mine. I make messes. I am not domestic. So don't look for lots of how-to tips or recipes. Although, I have written one... 
  12. I know squat about makeup and I buy all my makeup at Wal-Mart. 
  13. I rarely meet people I don't like and I truly want everyone to be my friend.
  14.  I see these bloggers do posts with friends who have similar fashion interests. Well.... keep waitin' folks, because I don't know any real life friends who dress this way. If you do....then, hit me up. Maybe we should be real life friends?
  15. I like old things. I have since....always. There's a yearbook picture of me in 5th grade helping with the canned food drive and I'm wearing a shirt from the 60s.
Most my awesomenesses don't translate via the internet. Dang. Ah well.... I still have fun!


Get your fashion on

Oh my Lanta - fellow Wal-Mart makeup purchaser, that STILL dresses up for Halloween too! Your blog is a breath of fresh air - it inspires me to bring out my inner weird-ness out in each of my posts too!

Thanks for sharing this, girlie! You may not do the normal things that bloggers do, but that's what makes you so awesome!

I think that as long as your having fun, that is all that matters. Too many blogs these days focus on numbers and being the "best", but they forget that they just need to have fun. I love how you incorporate your nutty personality in your blog. It's unique and fun, if that's not what a blog should be, then I don't want to read it. :)

Hahaha love this - this is a list of all the reasons why I love you! Oh my lanta - that's hilarious. Totally using that in a sentence this week. :)

Love this! It made me laugh. :) I'm only a year behind you, but feel the exact same way about kids! I'll just keep enjoying my niece and nephew thank you very much, they can be returned to their mothers...haha. Also, I totally support buying all your make up at Walmart. :) All mine comes from either Giant Eagle or CVS!
