Congratulations are in order for Amanda, who's heading off to Chapel Hill to blog for the Edwards campaign--and congratulations are in order for me-me-me-me-ME, who gets to pitch in a little at Pandagon while she's away.
The timing of this looks real suspicious, I imagine, to some people. All I can say to them is that they're just jealous that I can do better French braids than they can, and that I'm way more fun at slumber parties than they are.
It's funny, you know: If I suggested that Darleen got a gig blogging at Klown Kollege because she'd been sucking that infamous cock, that'd be horrible, and I'd earn a ration of well-deserved grief for even thinking it. But suggesting that I write what I write because it makes the lefty gurlz go crazy is A-OK.
That's enough of my grudge-nursing bitterness, though. Time to celebrate!
The neat thing is that I'm going to get to do whatever it is I do in front of a bigger, tougher crowd than I'm used to, and you're going to get to read more Genni here, with any luck. And I'll tell you what I'd like to do, both because Genni is a busy woman and because I just think it would be fun:
I'd like to open this blog up to anyone who wants the opportunity to blog a little differently from however they usually do it, where "differently" is defined however--if you normally do a lot of diary blogging and you want to try your hand at punditry, great. If you normally do a lot of advocacy blogging and you'd like to do more silly stuff, excellent. If you want to cross-post stuff from your own blog and not change anything up at all, that's fine too. If you don't even have a blog but you'd like to mess around with this one, come on down. But if you just want to post a picture of your ass on the internet, step off, because that's my gig.
See, most of the people who read me already have blogs, so I can't really offer A New and Exciting Adventure here. Plus, I have a small crowd, so I can't promise anyone greater exposure. About all I can do is offer it up as a playground where people can goof off without much risk or hassle. Low risk, because I don't have a huge audience--no one's gonna wind up profiled in the Times from blogging here. Low hassle, because all you have to do for maintenance is delete TomGower's comments every 10 minutes. Did I say every 10 minutes? I meant, uh, once or twice a month. Like at the MOST. Honest.
You can make up a new name for yourself, or you can use your usual handle and hype your blog (that probably gets more traffic than this one anyway), or whatever you like.
In summary, I am offering you one weak, lame, rusted-out-junker of an opportunity here, and I think you should take it! Email to myfirstfakename period mylastfakename at gmail period com. Offer void if you're TomGower.
