Indie Bloggers

As regular readers of this blog will note, I have recently felt a bit of apprehension about my relationship to this blog and the internet in general.  Last week, The Internet and I were on a break.  This week, I am taking things in an entirely different direction.  On Saturday, I am marrying the Internet. 

No, no….I kid.

I have decided to participate in a new project called Indie Bloggers.  You should too.  Indie Bloggers is for all of us non-mommy, non-knitting, non-foodie, blogging stragglers.  (Actually, I think you are more than welcome even if you do have a blog niche.)  Here is what the Indie Blogger editors have to say about the project:

"Indie Bloggers is about giving exposure to bloggers who need to be
read. Indie Bloggers is a showcase of written talent – stories, almost
– that you may not see otherwise. Anyone can submit. Everyone may not
be published right away or at all, but there are few restrictions
(i.e., I don’t want to hear about your sex life). Please don’t be
intimidated. We want your best!"

I certainly don’t believe I am a "blogger who needs to be read", (last I checked, a person could survive quite happily for years without googly eyes), but I am going to give this a shot.  Until I started this blog, I never realized how much I enjoy writing.  Before OhForFun, I didn’t give much thought to the quality of my writing, but now it is something I think about quite a bit.  I would like to be a better writer and I figure the only way to improve is to practice.  (No matter how hard I try, I can’t drink the years of musical training away…..practice, practice, practice.)  Maybe this project will provide a little motivation. 

I scrolled through a few of my past posts and submitted He’s Still My Boyfriend (renamed "I’m Super, Thanks For Asking") to Indie Bloggers.  I have always liked that silly little post.  If anyone has any suggestions for posts they think I should submit, I’d be interested to hear which ones you liked most.

Last week?  Blogging diet.  This week?  Blogging binge.  Welcome to Oh For Fun!

New Blogs

Some of you may have noticed that I have started a slew of new blogs.  For some reason I think it is hilarious to create new blogs with absurdly specific themes.  This is undoubtedly just a phase.  Fear not, this phase shall pass.  I don’t know why I get stuck on these silly ideas, but I do.  This is how I roll.  You are just going to have to trust me on this one: hyper-specific blogs are HILARIOUS.
