So I am stealing a few minutes while my Sweetie is giving the girl a bath and I was hopping around visiting folks and I ran into The Blogger's Concierge and they are looking for bloggers who consider themselves "A List Material."
Of course when I first hear that I immediately say to myself, "Why yes, of course I am A listable!"
Then they ask to say why and I start to doubt.
"Well what IS "A List" material?'
"I've never really been that popular and I kind of relate to Kathy Griffin's D list. Does that mean I could NEVER be A list?"
Well, they didn't really put a criteria out there except for something about possibly "being the first in the know." Well darn it then, I am NEVER the FIRST in the know. I'm probably regularly in the bottom third about knowing anything. I can fake it well though and even if I didn't know when we started the conversation I can have you believing, by the end of it, that the whole darn thing was my idea. Yep, I'm that good! Really that doesn't happen often... but sometimes....
Having this little conversation with myself made me think, "Well that is the whole damn point!"
You are A list if you think you are A list!
And today I am declaring myself A list! So Howdy Madam Concierge-ists! I want to play along and I hope you enjoy my A List Blog!
My blog is different from most blogs and the same too. I am in the middle of year long experiment to encourage more Everyday Bliss in my life. In order to do this I am playing an Everyday Game in which I explore what I am calling the 13 virtues of Bliss. Each week I concentrate on one of the virtues, create games to play and report my success or failures here.
I do my best to talk from my heart and I throw in surprises and some regular bloggy tricks from time to time (participating in really fun memes like Flip Off Friday and TMI Thursday) and all in all do my best to offer a little fun and inspiration on a daily basis. In my About this Blog tab you can find out more about the kind of things I generally post.
And if you want something a bit lighter, and from a Mom's perspective, you can always head over to my other newer (and also A List Blog) Everyday Mommy. Somewhere in either of these places I hope you are going to find something that tickles your fancy!
You too are an A List blog so head on over to the Blogger's Concierge and get yourself listed! The A List Affair is closing June 28th!!
Next Post: Will REALLY be the surprising conclusions I mentioned earlier today, or it will be yet another surprise... see you then!
My 13 bliss virtues are
joy, order, creativity, passion, whimsy, serenity, inquiry, community,
romance, gratitude, moxie, humility, and surprise.
This week we are studying Surprise.
Next week it is Hiatus week and after that, Joy.
