Company is Coming!

Oh me, oh my!

As I was scanning through my news feed today on the google/blogger reader, I noticed a Twitter party announcement one of the little writing clubs I follow is hosting. Then, as I was scanning the details (to see if it is something I would enjoy) - I noticed that they had the list of the paired writers for the "writing partner" project they are doing.

I began scanning the list, and lo and behold - there I was (close to the bottom) and I am paired up with another blogger. At first I did not understand how they paired us (based just on our blog titles.) She is a mommy, and we all know that mommyhood is not exactly a "hood" I plan to live in. But then I did a little more snooping - and visited her blog. Excellent writer, and the post I read were stories of the time she spent with her grandmother. The way she recollected the experiences, and the way she admires the family past - I knew then and there this was one quality writer (and person!)

I left my little message introducing myself, and quickly came back here. Uh - oh - perhaps company is coming! She might be checking out my blog as I type this. What will she think? Will she head back to the RDC and say, "No Way!" I mean.. the last 15 or so posts deal with some heavy stuff.

I kind of view blog hops like company is coming over. But you just had a pipe burst and there is no hiding it. ;-)

Our blogs are sort of like that. Little homes where we store our memories, our hopes & dreams, our fears and the details of our little lives. We hope people visit again. We hope they like us. But to be perfectly honest - it's all here. Just like when the company comes over, and you have to run out for milk - they get to plunder through your medicine cabinet.

What will she find?

Heck, what did YOU think the first time you stopped by?

And as with all good company, I do hope you return!

This is so funny! I have the same anxiety!!! I was paired with my buddy too. Now, all of the sudden I'm regretting the use of the "f" bomb in a few posts. It's like judgement day. ;-)

Wow. What a wonderful way to view visitors to your blog. I'm sure your "company" will love your blog as much as the rest of us do.

Thanks for stopping by. Don't be offended if when you're visiting my place if I hand you a mop and ask you to clean up. I want you to feel at "home" so no fancy treatment at the inn lol.

Haha! Thank you for the warm welcome, the kind words and for the GREAT post! I can see already that you and I are going to get along great! I'm not exactly sure what is expected of us as "writing buddies" but I'm glad to be paired with you. I look forward to spending some time browsing your blog and following along as we embark down this 'road' together. :)
