I decided to join this year because I’m really enjoying this blogging thing; I’ve stuck with it for over a year now and I know I’ll keep with it. And while I might not be the funniest, or deepest, or even most grammatically correct blogger out there, it’s fun for me and that’s all that matters.
Now, here’s where the catch comes in, because if all I really enjoyed was writing for myself, I’d have a diary hidden under my bed. I’d be lying if I said that this blog was just for me, unless I said it was for ME to enjoy other people reading what I wrote and commenting about it. See how I just slid in that bit of blatant narcissism? I’m smooth.
So this here little ol’ narcissist would like it if more people read her blog. That’s where NaBloPoMo comes in. (Also, my clumsiness. But we’ll get to that in a minute.)
Every day this month I’ll be posting about my most embarrassing moments. These won’t really be in any particular order, except for the last one, which is the Queen Mother of Embarrassment, a story that only 3 people in this world know, and 2 of them only know it because they were there at the time. The third knows better than to make fun of me if he ever wants to see me naked again.
However, (back to narcissism) I am not giving up these stories for nothing. In order to keep the embarrassment coming, I need to get more readers. So, tell your friends! The more people who come find out what a moron I am, the better. You will not hear the Queen Mother of all embarrassing stories unless I see more readers. Now hop to it!
(I should also mention that I am kind of easily embarrassed. That’s not to say that these stories won’t be good, but to say that I 100% guarantee that I will be blushing and gritting my teeth through posting all of them. Because yes, I am still embarrassed by things that happened to me in the 7th grade. You should sympathize with my pain.)
Also, if you are feeling brave you should feel free to share your own embarrassing stories! You can either leave them in the comments or send them to onesmartcookie1231 at yahoo dot com. I promise to be kind.
So there you have it! NaBloPoMo 2007 begins.
I’m blushing already.
