The thoughts that go through my head when I want to ask someone to do a guest post are pretty simple.
Should I ask someone to guest post? What if they say no? What if they think it's beneath them?
Ok I did it. I asked. Now to wait.
OMG they said yes because I'm not bloggy friends with assbutts.
And of course, it's ahhmazing, because they are ahhmazing.
Pretty short list, right?
Sometimes I see guest posts over at bloggers I luh-ove and I get all butt hurt for a second that they didn't ask me.
But I get over it, because the process I go through when someone does ask me is a wee bit more stressful.
Firstly I get an email from an incredibly sweet blogger that I obviously love. I read it, and immediately get nervous scared excited.
Maybe they have the wrong person. Or they are playing a trick on me.
No, they wouldn't do that. Relax. Respond.
I say something like 'oh of course, but are you sure? don't you like your readers?'
No really, are.you.sure? After they say yes because why would they have asked otherwise, I either go on my merry way with or without a topic in hand. No worries, mate!
When really, ALL THE WORRIES.
Seriously, what am I supposed to write? How am I supposed to be funny or witty or good with the words?
I devote all my energy and come up with what I feel is barely passable as an okay post.
Attach it to email, stare at email for like 5 minutes, close my eyes and hit send.
Oh shit. I should have looked at it one more time. What if there is a spelling error, or something stupid?
What if they think it's stupid and don't want to put it on their blog? I might cry. I think about sending another email to say 'just kidding! the real one is coming..' but they have already responded something sweet and lovely about how they love it.
Guess I can stop stressing now, right?
I still have to please the readers. But hey, if the blogger likes it, that's all that matters right?
No, but what if the readers hate it? What if my readers hate it? Ok, now I'm really stressing.
Well, go me right? Otherwise there would be no post today, and the blogger that asked me clearly didn't want that, so yay me.
Seriously, I love blogland. I might never leave. You people are nicer than real life people.
Ta ta for now!
