Today I opened up my reader for the first time since before Christmas and really got caught up on my reading. I didn’t realize until I’d started into my overflowing reader, how much I missed my blogging friends! I felt like I was reconnecting to something that I had really been missing for the past week and a half. It was so great to read all of your 2012 wrap ups and 2013 goals – a great way to get back into blog reading in 2013!
Call for Guest Posts
In the next few months I’m going to be doing a fair bit of travelling. I’m going to Dallas for work on January 27th for a week, and then I’m heading to Boston the first week of February for a family vacation.
I’m super excited for both of these trips! During that time, I’m not planning on blogging all that much, so I’d love to have some guest posts going up! If you’re interested in guest posting for me, send me an email at myalternatelifeblog at gmail dot com.
Apparently, I’m No Longer Anonymous
The weirdest thing has been happening to me lately. I’m a big online shopper, so when I got a Nexus 7 tablet for Christmas, I didn’t hesitate to hop online and find a case for it. I ended up ordering this sexy thing from DODOcase.
An awesome tablet cover.
The problem is, when it arrived, it was addressed to:
Jordann *Last Name*
My Alternate Life
How this happened, I have no clue. I didn’t use my blog email address, I didn’t write my blog info anywhere in the information, so why the heck was it addressed to my blog? How did they know? If anyone has any insight into this little mystery, I’d be happy to hear from you.
Now, onto my favourite blog posts this week. You’ll find all of the usual offenders here with their goals, wrap ups, and funny stories. Enjoy!
