When I first became a blogger, I figured my readership would be limited to about 3 blood relatives. As the weeks and months progressed, a few of my friends started reading along. Then, out of nowhere, a bunch of unknown writers with their own blogs started following me and even left comments. I was very confused.
After a while, I started getting it - the community aspect of blogging, that is. You start reading about the interesting and funny stuff of strangers, and suddenly, they're not strangers anymore. In a weird and uncharted manner, they become real friends.
I hope this isn't sounding creepy.
Anyway, one of my blog friends sent me her new book - Mom's Had a Rough Day. She did it not so that I would hype it (of course I will do that anyway because she's hilarious), but because we are actually living very similar and silly lives with boy-children. We get Pokemon. We curse Legos. And, as she puts it, we both have secret code names for the perfect, Stepford-like children who sit and draw quietly: Girls.
If you're interested in having a good laugh, you should check out her book. If you're cheap and live near me, I'll lend you my copy. Please return it though, as it's signed.
I have no doubt it will be very valuable one day.
