If you are a blogger, why do you blog? Why do you as a reader read blogs? Do you like to read about new products or do you prefer gazing at glorious pictures?
For me, I like blogging and reading blogs to give me a mental vacation of my daily life. Not saying my life is bad, it's just kinda boring. Let me rephrase that, my life has PLENTY going on, but it revolves around work and kids.
I work nights with 3 other FANTASTIC girls who keep almost every night the funniest soap opera too hot for tv...when we are not dead tired. But at home, I needed some way to express myself to adults, or I will just morph back into a zombie mom again.
So I decided I wanted to blog, and as a bonus, I would get FREE STUFF!!! Oh this would be sooooo easy!!!!!
Started off with Tumblr, which is easy breezy unless you want people to actually read your blog. Then I tried blogspot. Did you know you needed to know html and have official disclosure policies? Also, sometimes people steal your pictures or posts and use them as their own? :/
And what is crazier than actually thinking I would get tons of free stuff is actually thinking I could blog while watching the kids. Hahahahaha!! Yeah right!!!
Then I slowly realized, that the blog was not about free stuff, it was about self expression. I may not get tons of samples, but I hear over and over that I get TONS of laughs! Do you know how awesome that is for me? Each time someone tells me I made them laugh, I feel like I am a super hero!!! Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No! It's Zombie Mom! I am here citizens! I will show you that you can run outside naked just to get the smelly diapers out of your house (I was on my way to the shower and both kids just had to poop! And they STANK!). I can also show you how to kill your husband with a single stink eye. My extra special power is silencing your screaming child cheese puffs! (Trust me, it works)
I read in another blog that Marc from ManGlaze is willing to chat with no name nobodies like me. I know ManGlaze is not the first brand that comes to mind for being all warm and cuddly. ManGlaze admits their polish is not for everyone, and the names of some of their polish will not sit well with some. However (I know he will kill me for this), Marc is really cool and a really, really NICE guy. He probably thought I was a stalker, but that did not stop me!
I ordered a few of their frankenjuggs, and sent him a pic of one of the frankens I mixed in their jugg. I called it "Polarizer" because it looks like cholesterol crystals under a polarizing microscope. He put it on his facebook page and the response was great!!
manglaze.com order a few juggs and start frankening!!! It is so relaxing and addictive! And while you are over there at ManGlaze, tell Marc the crazy cholesterol queen sent you his way!
