Bloghops and Blogger

First lets give some shoutouts to bloghops!!!

Amy Sonnichsen and Christa Desir are hosting My So Called Teenage Life bloghop today. I was seriously thinking about doing this one. I dug up some old photo books and senior albums but to my dismay there was nothing. Let’s be honest... if you know me, you know I'm not highly sentimental. I never kept a diary cause I never wanted it to be discovered. Should we say I was never the... uhm... good child. I'm just gonna put it out there…

I was the overachieving, cheerleading, vodka drinking, pothead. Yup I said it. POTHEAD. What’s a girl to do? My brother grew up knowing how not to get caught. I chose ALL the wrong guys. Did ALL the stupid stuff no one else would do. And was ALWAYS blamed for the stuff I actually didn’t do. Am I proud - NO! But I can't deny it was a part of my life. Teenagers! Ugh!

My poor kids can’t get away with anything. Such as life.

So even if I did keep a journal or diary; I most likely wouldn’t have remembered what happened anyways.

Moving on…

Tomorrow is Jaycee’s and Victoria’s Girls Just Wanna Have Fun! Bloghop!

I’m overly excited and have my post all ready to go. It was done on Monday!

Then on the 30th of June Melinda Dozier is hosting How We Met Bloghop.

Share the story of how you met your significant other, be it your husband, boyfriend or partner, in 100 words or less.

Make sure you go visit Melinda for the deets to this hop!

And finally; over at Falling For Fiction aka FFF (or as a co-worker thought it stood for -Fine F*&%ing Females – and thanks to him, it’s stuck). They are hosting Hookers & Hangers Blogfest July 16th & July 18th

We all know how important the first and last lines are in every chapter. This blogfest will hopefully get your HOOKERS and HANGERS polished making it impossible for readers to put down your book and leaving them begging for more!

NOW!!! I have one thing to say about Blogger… why in the same H. E. Double Hockey Sticks doesn’t this dang thing have spell check? I mean, if it does, I don’t know how to get it to work. It’s a huge pain in my butt. Yes I am one of those who strongly rely on it. It’s a crutch. I spell how I talk so sometimes my words end up all wonky. Ya know?!

It has been bugging me - well since I started blogging but I've had enough. LMAO!

Ok done with that.

Have a great Thursday!


  1. Wow! I'm surprised. You bad girl!
    These blog hops sound fun! I knew about a couple of them, but not all. Thanks for sharing! :)

    1. *hangs head in shame* I know. I had to learn the hard way.

  2. Heh, I didn't join in with the teen bloghop for similar reasons. I mean, the not keeping a journal part, not the bad girl part. :p I was freakishly dull in high school lol!

    Looking forward to Jaycee and Victoria's hop!

  3. I did the teenage bloghop. I didn't keep a diary either so I posted a bit of prose I wrote back then.

    The Hooker and Hanger Blogfest sounds pretty awesome.

  4. Wish I had more time to do blog hops. Some of the topics just seem so fun to write about. But then it's so hard to commit to doing the "hop" part.

  5. I don't have anything left from my teenage years either. Probably because I kept getting expelled and shipped off to reform school.

  6. I was the complete opposite of you in high school! I was super sentimental and kept tons and tons of photos and diaries. I even have notes that my friends and I passed in class. Sometimes I reread them and shake my head... amazing what kids can consider a "crisis." Thanks for sharing about the bloghops - those look fun!

  7. I never kept a diary either. Apart from the time they made us as part of our homework. I ran out of stuff to say, so started skipping days and kept getting back notes like "you need to write an entry". Ugh.
    I was actually a bit of a bored teen and school. Left at 16 and joined the workforce (where I was still bored but could at least got paid for it. ^_^)

  8. you're too funny! and these are great fests!

    ps, blogger recently added spellcheck for writing new must spell everything right! (it underlines the wrong)


I heart me some good comments... and pumpkin spice latte's too!
