Pin It AAACK! I just thought of something I can do. And now I'm so excited that I'm going to just post about it before I even think it through (because that's what I do).
Many moons ago a few bloggy friends and I were talking about putting together a blog book, kind of inspired by this book, except ours wasn't going to be for charity. (GREEDY)
It was my idea, and I guess that kind of means I was supposed to be in charge, but I kept forgetting about that part, and now and then I would think, "Huh, I wonder whatever happened with that blogging book?" And then I'd get an email saying, "Hey, Sue, what's going on with the blogging book?" I'd remember about my incharginess for a few minutes and would start making plans, then I'd see something sparkly and forget again. So nothing ever really happened. (SURPRISING!)
But now, I'm thinking we should do the Blog Book, but for CHARITY, with all of the funds going to the NieNie fund. It'll be full of short stories from a lot of witty, wonderful women. Plus me. And then you will all (MAKE IT SO) buy the book and we will make approximately TWELVE BILLION DOLLARS, all for Nie.
Good, right? Right? Kind of?
So, um, I haven't told them this yet, because, you know, spur of the moment, but I'm going to rope in all of the bloggers who were going to participate previously, but then also, we're going to have a contest. A CONTEST. Wheeeeee! If you want to be a part of the book, you'll have the opportunity to submit an entry. I'll blackmail a few people into serving as judges, and we'll pick the stuff we think fits best for publication in the book.
The theme of the book will be, "Sometimes Life is Funny," - and it will be a collection of funny stories from women around the country. I'll give you more specifics in the next few days, once I calm down enough to actually think of specifics.
In the meantime, if you think you might be interested in participating, let me know in the comments. WOOT!
PS: I can't believe I just said WOOT.
PPS: My friend Terri (from THIS post) called me and left a message. And you guys, I CALLED HER BACK! I left a message, then (I swear it's true) I CALLED HER BACK AGAIN and actually SPOKE to her. Using words and everything! She wasn't mad, not even a little bit, and we laughed and laughed and laughed. YAY for friends, and YAY for positive peer pressure from the internet. :>
