Registered for Blogging201 and preparing for Wifey’s Outburst

Friends from Blogging101 and Writing101, I gave the NaNoWriMo a miss but have registered for the Blogging201 course. I am wondering if any of you have too. It’s going to run from December 8th to 17th, and you can register for it at the Blogging University here.

Wifey doesn’t know about it yet, but I expect her to go all frosty when she learns about it.


Because the timing is all wrong. December is a busy month at home. It’s packed with two marriages in the family. The marriages themselves are a non-issue, but these events have some toxic byproducts and one of them is the arrival of Mom and Dad in the city. Their arrival triggers a metamorphosis in all of us (mom, dad, wifey, I, and the dog,) and within a week we all transform into acid-spitting monsters. The color of our pupils and the shape of our irises undergo a change – the former acquire a tinge of red, and the latter stretch vertically…in a nutshell, we all begin to look like cats from hell.

OK. I went a little too far with my description but you get the gist. Now add to this, a three-week coding assignment, and the third issue of the QSM Magazine. They must be completed without fail, and when you look and feel like a cat from hell, your vision suffers and you experience violent headaches that interfere with your ability to process logic.

This is why I fear that wifey isn’t going to be happy with my decision to add the Blogging201 dish to my already overloaded plate, but some would say that my malarkey tastes better when I cook it under pressure. (Remember, I am a pressure-cooker.)

So folks, if you haven’t registered for Blogging201 yet, do it pronto, because then in addition to learning cool stuff about branding etc., you can sit back and watch the December episodes of my Quirky, Snarky, Malarkey. Sample it in the QSM Magazine here.

Let me know if we’ll meet again in Blogging201 🙂

  1. Not sure if I”ll join but will surely check out Blogging201. Wish you the best of your ability for multitasking. 🙂

    Oh, you poor man! You can only do so much at one time before you break and it does sound like you have your hands/house full this month.

    I took Blogging 201, but mine was about widgets. I’m not quite to the point I need to talk about branding and getting more readers, so I’ll take a pass. Sounds like you should consider doing so, too. It will probably be back around in February or March. Good luck!

      I’d love to get more readers but if I don’t manage my time right I might as well be writing from a charred desk in hell. Still more than a week to go, so trying to wrap up some work before it starts 🙂 Thanks for the wishes.

    I’m finishing up the first draft of my nonfiction book on what American notaries need to know as part of NaNonFiWriMo. I really hope my wife will be home in December, as she’s been in a medical facility of one sort or another since September. So, December will likely go to taking care of her and editing my book so it’s ready to send out for proofing and editing by others. I will do Blogging201 later. I’d like to retake Writing101 first (had to drop-out of it due to the medical matters already mentioned). Good luck with juggling all these plates at once!

      I hope Mrs. Gatewood is home soon. Staying in a medical facility for months can be a real downer. Obviously you cannot and shouldn’t spend your time in 201. I’ll consolidate all the useful things I learn and try making a post of it. I still have the Karvachauth article to write but it might end up going into the QSM Magazine instead. Thanks for your good wishes.

  7. I took blogging 201 last time around. It’s not nearly as time consuming as blogging 101. In fact, you may already be doing most of what they teach in the course. I won’t say it’s not worth it because I did pick up some good tips! I can’t wait to hear about your weddings and wish you best of luck dealing with your parents!

    I would miss the course 😦 but I know you will do good!

    P.S. I just read ‘wifey’ in your title and I just can’t stop laughing! What’s with your wifey. Hahaha

    P.S. Part 2
    Keep your patience, Anand. 🙂

    We are classmates at Blogging 201. Just made sense to me as to why I was following you earlier. *grin*
    You must love your wifey very much! Lucky lady! 🙂
    P.s. That’s a compliment from a girl who belongs to ‘the exotic south’ too! 😀
