I tend to tell it like it is.
Most of the time it’s well received. Ok, maybe not WELL received, but accepted. Others, I feel like I have a case of something like open mouth insert foot syndrome. Regardless, I am who I am. (If you want someone to REALLY tell you how that outfit looks, I’m your girl.) Admittedly, it’s easier for me to be honest in writing. I can just write more eloquently than I can speak. I’ve been told on more than on occasion that they appreciate the honesty in my blog. I think honesty is important. Sugar coating things doesn’t help anyone.
I’ve toyed with the concept of having guest bloggers. I like reading guest posts on other blogs. So I’m writing this to throw the idea out there. I’d like to have a probably twice monthly guest blog. The theme, as you can maybe guess from the title, is honesty. You can write about whatever you want. Really, the options are pretty endless. Share your thoughts on motherhood, your job, infertility, your marriage, your pet goldfish (seriously, endless). Tell how you feel about a life experience big or small, why you think you can’t break a bad habit. Be serious. Be funny. Be both. Whatever. I don’t even care if you have your own blog – if you just follow on Facebook and would like to share something, I’ll post it. Of course I’ll post some of my own.
Maybe I’ll get interest, maybe this will be a flop. But you don’t know until you ask, right?
So, who’s in?

I think I could be in! I don’t have a problem with honesty, I have a problem coming up with topics! 🙂

I’m happy to help you brainstorm on a topic. Any ideas at all we could branch from?

My problem is that my kid is 10 years older than most of your readerships kids! I could do an insight as to what everyone should expect once the teenage years strike! 🙂 I don’t know – I’ve been letting it stew on the back burner hoping that inspiration would strike! LOL

No rush. You’ll think of something. 🙂 I do have Facebook readers with older children too

Just let me know when you’re ready :). You can send it to my email at email@example.com. Type aittle intro blurb if you like and if you want to include a picture you can attach it and I’ll put it up 🙂

I’ll start working on it now! I’m excited, I love writing guest blogs! I’m totally vain enough to believe that everyone wants to hear what I have to say!
October 14, 2013 at 10:14 pm
If you think I would fit in, I’d be interested 🙂 I love writing super honest posts.
October 15, 2013 at 2:58 am
Absolutely! You can be first if you want!
October 17, 2013 at 11:25 pm
Oh yay! Any topic ideas? Anything you think I could handle? 🙂
October 17, 2013 at 11:50 pm
Really you can write about anything you want. I can try to help if you’re looking for it but its pretty open! I wrote a page about it with a few ideas if you’d like.

Great idea. I find that I learn honesty as I write. It is an interesting process for me.
October 15, 2013 at 2:57 am
Well if you have anything you’d like to share I’d love to post it 🙂

Oooooo I’m a wee bit honest too at times. I’m about to go on a holiday for a couple of weeks but after that I’d be down for a guest post if you’ll have me! 🙂
October 15, 2013 at 6:39 am
Sure! Drop me a line when you get back!
October 16, 2013 at 6:06 pm
I’m interested! 🙂 Should I email you when I have something I want you to consider?
October 16, 2013 at 6:22 pm
Sure! Include a little bio if you’d like. I’m happy to post a pic or two also. Theresajpowers@gmail.com
