Moving along . . .
I went back to last Wednesday's post and reviewed the results. Guest Bloggers won by a landslide. Next was Texas Tidbits.
So I think what I'll do, since Blogger decided it didn't want a guest blogger here today, is host a guest blogger on the Wednesdays that I have one. On the other Wednesdays I'll write a Texas Tidbits post. I hope I don't have to write any Tidbits about Texas. So I'd appreciate your posting the information on your blogs to help get the word out. See below for contact information.
Most everyone preferred themed Guest Blogging. I've been thinking about something zany yet appropriate. I don't want anyone to have to think too hard but still have it be a fun read. And something that fits the Tiki Hut, summer, and writing. Promotion would be in the form of the author's introduction/bio. Photos encouraged.
And I'm so stealing AND plagiarizing some of Alex J. Cavanaugh's Tips for Guest Bloggers:
* Contact me as soon as possible so I can fit you into now one of 13 Wednesdays.
* I'm open to all bloggers. Humor is a must. Or suspense. Or a combination. No downbeat posts! This will also work in your favor. And my blogger buddies get preference.
* I schedule my posts on the weekend before they appear, so I need your post by Sunday evening before it's scheduled to go live on Wednesday. This will also help avoid any further Blogger snafus. And I prefer short guest posts - most of my posts are in the 350 word range. So no more than 500 words TOTAL for intro/promo and post. I might fudge a little on that, but not much. If you're long on one, cut some of the other. If you're long, ask first - don't just send it to me. People are used to zipping in here and zipping out. So the shorter the better.
* Please have the courtesy to thank me when it’s over. And you really need to thank the commenters, too.
I'm not a Hot Tamales fan like Alex, but you can send him some :)
Thank you, Alex, for allowing me to steal your rules.
And now to the Tiki Theme. All guest bloggers will base their post on this scenario:
You brought your laptop to the Tiki Hut for some peace and quiet.
What drink do you order? Any snacks?
You're writing away when something catches your eye.
What is it? How do you stay focused on your writing.

Please pass the word. I really don't want to write Texas Tidbits. Thanks!
