Goodness knows I've done quite a few posts using them as my springboard.
What? You haven't been paying attention? Well, okay.
Here's just a few examples of my use of weird holidays:
►Everything You Do is Right Day - One of 'Those' Days
►National Popcorn Lovers Day - I Don't Like Popcorn
►Curmudgeon Day - 5 Ways to Battle Curmudgeons
Just to name a few.
Okay, I've given you enough side tracked thoughts... you did go look didn't you?
Whew! I was hoping you would.
Stay With Me...
Oh yeah, weird holidays and how I use them to springboard into my posts.
So today, is another great weird holiday and I've found a really great post to go right along with it.
Wait for it!
That's right , today is... (drum roll please)
National Awkward Moments Day
We've all had them. All witnessed others having them.
Those lil moments of red tipped ears, pink flushed cheeks, and stammering speech.
Those moments when we don't know what to say or even where to begin.
Nowhere are those awkward moments more embarrassing than when someone asks,
"So, you blog. What's your blog about?"
And suddenly, uncertainty shows its ugly little head.
Will the answer seem silly, will I sound silly? Will they really understand what I do and love?
Two of the Best
I'm tooling along checking out all of my web pages (Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, etc) and I stumble upon this post about not knowing what to say when folks ask about your blog.
Amy Dunn Moscoso, a B2B Marketing Communications Writer, wrote it and it's fabulously fabulous!
Here's the true KICKER!! Here's why it resonated with me so much.
It goes right along with everything I've learned and still learning during my stint on 30 Day Blogging Challenge (now for the 4th time! Yeah, I love it THAT much) with Sarah Arrow, she's an author and business blogging guru!
I love it when things come together and suddenly,
It's like getting a sprinkling of magic dust
and abracadabra ~~~~~ *POOF*
Awkward Moments be gone!
