Hey, I Wrote A Guest Post!

Let me start this by saying I LOVE Blog Around The World. I've met so many awesome bloggers through this site. I remember when it started. I was eager to put my name in and blog about California when it was my turn to be featured. But along with visiting people's blogs, they also sometimes have bloggers write a guest post for the site. **freaking out** No problem, I thought to myself. The blog owner, Debbie didn't know me very well and I figured it was highly unlikely she would ever ask me to do a guest post. And if she ever did, I'd just politely decline anyway, because I've never done a guest post for someone else's blog before and I would have no idea what to blog about anyway.

Since that time, I've actually gotten to know Debbie. And I really, really like her. She's cool. I mean, REALLY cool. And guess what? Yep. She asked me to do a guest post for her today. And while I would've come up with some really great excuse for not being able to do it... like having to wash my hair, feed my bunny, or wash my bunny's hair... I decided to say yes. Because Debbie is cool.

So without further ado... if you'd like to read my guest post (and you BETTER)... Click Here.

  9. Oh one more thing....I am VERY interested in your Adoption story. I have three sons....youngest is almost 11 years old. My husband and I have been talking about adopting a little girl for quite awhile now, and are very interested in Ethiopia. I am going to check out the info on your adoption in your side bar.

    Thanks :-)

  13. Love your guest post!

    And, do you know what I completely love about YOU? Your completely uninhibited self-confidence - the confidence by which you love your husband and kiddos WELL and the confidence by which you look at your own quirks and embrace them and poke fun of them all at the same time! :-)

  14. Julie,

    Great post! So, are we friends because you are so crazy and does that make me crazy too?

    I always enjoy looking at life through your humorous eyes. :) And I mean that.

  15. Awesome job girlfriend! And you didn't even completely reveal how crazy and way over the line you really are - You didn't even mention that you have had a special water system so that your water all comes out purple!

  16. Disclaimer: For someone who works in entertainment marketing / audience development, YOU ARE A DREAM COME TRUE. Bc not only are you passionately obsessed, but you are infectiously so! People like me spend lots of time studying people like you wondering how we can influence your obsessions! But I promise to just quietly read your blog and glean wisdom and insight - for now :-)

  24. I read it. Way late, but I read it. And I figured out it was you when you got to the Twilight stuff ;) I totally would have returned the books, too. Errr repurchased the books. Then I would have found a poor soul who hadn't read the series yet (you know, like me....) and given them to that poor soul ;)
