Hey, people! It’s less than a month until Disregard the Prologue’s first blogiversary!
Stop, please! You’re embarrassing me.
Anyway, I’d like to do some fun things that week (the blogiversary itself falls on October 9). I’ll be writing some new posts, maybe some fiction if I have time, and re-posting some bits of bloggy goodness that happened way back before most of you were regular visitors.
I don’t want this to be all about me and this blog, because that’s just silly. This should be a party, and I want my blog friends to participate.
So here’s the deal: if you’ve been around for a while (lurk-following or commenting, doesn’t matter) and you’d like to do a guest post, send me a pitch (see “about me” for contact info, or comment here if you’re feeling brave). Want me to post a video of you showing off a special talent for the benefit of the other guests? Sure! Have a party recipe to share? Please, let me know! I’d love to do give-aways on anyone’s books, or promote free days, because what’s a party without prizes? Heck, maybe I’ll go to the dollar store and pick up some party favours (as long as they’ll fit in a flat envelope, because I just got KILLED shipping a package to California today. Ugh.) A party needs music, games,
strippers, drinks, and lots of confetti.
I think we all know that this isn’t exactly a professional blog setting, so this is pretty open. I’d like to keep it reasonably family-friendly, and there’s one other rule: any guest post you’d like to propose needs to be for the benefit of the little community that’s grown up around DtP, not just self-promotion. Of course, if you want to give something away (even if it’s just entertainment or advice) that just happens to promote your book, blog, or service… well, I probably won’t stop you. 😉
Maybe no one will want to participate, and that’s fine. But I hope you’ll all come by during the week of October 7-13 to see what kind of party we’ve put together.

Well boo. You said you don’t need strippers. My milkshakes have been known to bring the ladies to the yard… he he he Congratulations on the almost blogging year!

PART-TAY!! Hope it goes well! Look forward to reading the various guest posts! (If I get the chance).

Can you tell I’m catching up on my blog reading? What sort of guest posts are you looking for? Any suggestions for topics?

Nope. I’m deliberately leaving it open, aside from what I said in the post. Free book days, a funny post about your worst birthday/anniversary ever, a great party recipe with photos, a short story or poem about something somewhat related to blogs, anniversaries, parties… Whatever. Show off a talent, share a gift, bring a friend, throw your own kind of confetti. 🙂

Well, I don’t have a book to sell, a recipe, a short story, or poem about anniversaries or blogs, I guess I’ll be reading the guest posts of others, just like Green Embers.
