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 🙂
