So I’m officially turning into the annoying jerk that can’t stop talking about her blog. I’m a self-promoter, ‘The Expert’, and a nerd. My friend Nate made fun of me the other day for being ‘The Expert’ while simultaneously making fun of ‘The Expert’. I just can’t help myself. When I hear people talk about something I have blogged about, I say, “Oh, did you see my blog about that?!” The words leap out of my mouth before I can stop them. “Oh, you read 50 Shades of Grey? Did you see my blogs about that?” My poor husband…

If I were one of my friends, I would make fun of me A LOT!

I’ve mentioned this briefly in the past, but blogging is so weird. To have a blog you have to believe that people care what you have to say (unless you are literally just blogging for yourself, but that is pretty rare). Either you believe you are some sort of expert in your field or on specific topics, or you want to be a writer, or you think you are funny. It turns out I am guilty of all three! That means I am the worst- “Not only can learn from me, but I’m hilarious! Oh, and buy my future book.”

Why bring this up? I don’t know. Maybe it makes me feel better to laugh at myself. Maybe it’s to let you know that you can make fun of me too. Maybe it is so I don’t feel bad for making fun of other people with blogs. Because, really, they are the worst too!
