The Guest Post Challenge

Thursday, November 6th, 2008

I’m sure this will surprise you to know, but I am totally making this up as I go along. Because I’m awesomely organized like that.

I also use words like awesomely.

You will understand the irony of that in about 2 seconds. Maybe. Unless you don’t get irony, in which case, I can’t help you.

ANYway – WHO WANTS ME TO WRITE A GUEST POST FOR THEM?

Wait. There’s more to that. This is a fabulous idea. I know because I got it at about 3 am this morning. How can you go wrong with an idea that came to you at 3 am in the morning?

I’ve been doing a bit of writing around the Internet. It’s all part of my master plan to have a book person approach me and pay me to write a book before I have actually written anything, and then I will spend my days sipping Frappies at the coffee shop while I work on my next Project up until my next Project becomes a big hit and Oprah invites me to come talk to her and then decides I am way better than Gail or Stedmond and makes me her new BFF and –

- wait, where was I going with this?

Right. Guest posts. Because I am an awesome writer. Clearly.

Specifically, I’m looking to practice writing on topics that other people pick. The beauty of a personal blog is that you can write whatever you want, whenever you want. It’s indulgent like that. But I’d like to push myself a little beyond that – or at least try.

HERE IS THE PART WHERE YOU CAN START READING BECAUSE IT ACTUALLY MAY BE OF INTEREST TO YOU.

Would you be interested in having me write a guest post for you?

If so, please leave a comment and YOU CHOOSE THE TOPIC! Do you want a question answered? A specific story told? A big broad topic like “oh, I dunno, write something about Florida” discussed because you hate me?

Leave your topic of choice in the comments and we’ll coordinate by email.

My goal is to write every post requested – not all in a day, mind you – regardless of how many.

This will be much less impressive if no one asks for a guest post. But still.

WHY IN THE HELL WOULD YOU WANT ME TO GUEST POST ON YOUR BLOG?

Because the holidays are coming up and you could use a day off?

Because I use words like awesomely?

Because, look, I’m not really sure and I haven’t hit publish yet and am already kind of regretting putting this out there like I’m all HELLO! I WILL GRACE YOUR BLOG WITH MY AWESOMENESS!

But it would really be a big help to me.

And isn’t that what blogging is all about?

EDITED TO CLARIFY:

Everyone who asks gets a guest post on the topic they choose. The only thing you can’t request is a certain date – because I have no clue how this is going to work. So, leave your comment and I’ll email you details on when, questions, etc. But yes, that topic is great.

  1. Britt's Mom says:

    Hey!

    How come when I come up with an idea at 3 am it’s always crazy – but when you do…

    …wait. This IS a good idea. Great way for you to stretch your abilities.

    Shit. There goes my argument. Going back to Bejeweled now.

  2. Avitable says:

    I seem to remember asking you for a guest post in the last couple of weeks and getting a punch to the nuts! Is this a trick? If I ask again are you going to run in here fists swinging and ballrack me again? Am I on Candid Camera?

  3. shiny says:

    I’m in. This is a very good idea.

    I’d be interested in seeing you write a piece on what your take on Judaism is. It could be about the religion, the culture, Jewish people, matzo ball soup — whatever you decide. I’m sincerely interested in what you might write specifically because you spent most of your life growing up in a place where there was no sizable Jewish community.

    What do you think?

  4. PocketCT says:

    me me me! But I want some time to think of something good.

  5. SciFi Dad says:

    This is definitely an interesting idea, Britt. I have never had a guest poster before; it didn’t even occur to me to ask for some while I was busy taking care of my wife and new son last month.

    Let me give the idea some thought. If you don’t hear back from me and you’re light on offers, email me, OK?

  6. me, me, me!!! pick my blog to guest post on because i will be in charleston, sc all of next week and won’t have time to post every day. plus, that fucker adam has not yet guest posted for me (it was a part of the prize package i won) and we all know you do all the work in that office anyhow.

    topic? hmmmm. topic. i would like for you to write about your favorite book. what you learned from it, how it touched your heart, your life circumstances when you first read it, etc. seeing as how you want a book deal, i am curious as to the books that have had the most impact on your heart and head.

    (if you don’t like that topic i have a bunch more for you to pick from!)

  7. I’d love for you to do a guest post on my blog! I have a little problem at the moment in that I can’t login to actually post, but that should be resolved soon. I hope. Anyway, maybe we can just schedule you for later on.

    Topic? Hmmm…

    How about if you answer the question, “Is raising a boy different from raising a girl?” I’ve always wondered this and right now I only have a girl.

    Would that work?

  8. Lisa says:

    I think I asked you to guest post for me during the summer but never followed up. You can write about anything on my blog. No topic is off limits.

  9. Oh, me! me!

    How about this for a topic. I will send you a random picture of myself doing something and you write the story behind the picture without me telling you the story. A fun, creative outlet where you can make shit up about me. What’s not to love?

  10. Vic says:

    That’s an excellent idea. I challenge you to write about puerperal psychosis from a fictional point of view.
    If you can do it in another language that might gain you bonus points (but I won’t have a clue what you’re saying).

  11. GoBloMeMoFo.

    That’s all I’m saying.

    I was trying to think of a topic, but want to throw my blog in there before I’m just one name in hundreds.

    You’ll get a really cool button of a bunny in peril… Now, let me think of a wicked topic.

  12. Gina says:

    I would love for you to guest post for me. I would love to do the same for you in return. This is a great idea for stretching ourselves as writers (you lucky woman who gets PAID blogging gigs). I may have to steal this idea down the road and post something similar on my own blog.

    I will think on some post topics for you to choose on. E-mail me when you find the time. :) (Incidentally I have been responding to some of your tweets).

  13. Sunshine says:

    I would love a guest post about how great it was to grow up in Iowa and now that you live away, what you miss most.
    I share with my readers my Iowa love as much as possible, so I need some backup, dude.

  14. Finn says:

    You could write a post about how fabulous I am. That should be easy, right? ;P

    You could also maybe write a short piece of fiction for me if you’d like.

    Or what you want to be when you grow up.

  15. Dawn says:

    I’d ask you but, alas, I’ve got no blog.

    If you want to guest-PAINT a room in my house, though, I can tell you the color. Sound good? No? Bitch! :)

  16. Patrick D. says:

    Interesting idea. How about a guest post on Patrick Says? The topic would be ‘ Dsiney Teenage Celebrity Pregnancies: Who’ll Be The First (Or Next)?’ Compare and contrast the odds for Miley Cyrus, that chick from High School Musical, iCarly and Kim Possible, add others if you’ve got something good.

    What do you think?

  17. I will allow you to guest post on my blog, because my tens of readers deserve to be enlightened by not just one curly-headed blond.

    They deserve two. (The 2nd being me in case you weren’t aware.)

    Topic of choice: Curly-headed blondness and its positive effect on the world around us.

  18. Deeg says:

    Yay yay! I stumbled upon your blog about a month ago through Avitables…I still haven’t found my voice enough to comment on either of yours but im loving reading them. I think id thoroughly enjoy a guest post from you-mainly because im nosey as hell and curious and love to hear about peoples juicey bits and my question to you would be to tell of your memory of the very first time you put on your “o” face (oh oh oh gotta love Office Space) and it included another person (not just you and your button ya know)

    yeah…can i get any more personal and rude with a handshake and a hello? hahaha…probably, but this is as far as i’ll push it for now :)

    come give me some guts to write about the things i really want to on my blog…i haven’t found those yet lol

  19. Brilliant! Think how much you’ll expand your readership! I’m told I write a lot about sex. I think you could do sex? Today it’s about getting aroused by my dentist while … in his chair. Shit like that. Of course, if you would prefer a deep thought provoking post that could work too.

    Count me in!

  20. Deeg says:

    oh p.s

    is it bad that another reason for this is i know you will bring some people on over and i want to hear their juicy “oh” story as well? I am nothing if not a voyeur…just lemme get some popcorn going :)

  21. Amber says:

    O.o! Count me in!

    I’m going on vacation from Thursday the 20th of November to the 30th…

    See how thoughtful you are??? I wanted to ask you, but then totally chickened out. Imagine my surprise and delight when I opened Google Reader this morning and see your post!

    You’re like the pimp AND the ho, all in one! Hehe (I’m kidding… really.)

    So… count me in! And my topic? You can totally choose whatever you want, but I think this would be interesting, given the fact that I’m a bona fide college student now:

    Do you think students are more likely to succeed if they don’t go to college immediately? What reforms would you put into place to fix our broken education system – from pre-k to college? In your opinion, would waiting – or not waiting – to go to college, after highschool graduation, hinder or help? How would you use education to address the growing problem of illiteracy in our society?

    Would *love* to know your thoughts on this… feel free to run with it; those are just a few questions.

    Looking forward to hasing out the details!

    Good luck with this experiment. I think you’re a fabulous writer, but broadening your writing horizons never hurt anything, either! :)

  22. Agent Elle says:

    Me me me! Please pick me :D I’ll think of something good, I promise.

  23. OMG. That is totally MY BUSINESS plan! We have that in common awesomely.

    I would love to have you expand on the business plan in a guest post on my blog. I figure if you lay it out fully I can just copy it completely and save myself the planning time. Oh, and I require you to use at least three words that are not recognized by normal English speaking people but should totally be included in the dictionary…for instance, awesomely.

  24. Karl says:

    Count me in. I’d like to see you write about the emotional differences between men and women. Yeah, it’s esoteric.

  25. Miss Britt says:

    I pick everyone.

    If you leave a comment with a topic, then yes – I’ll do that guest post on that topic.

    The only thing I can’t commit to is a specific date – so don’t worry about that. We’ll coordinate via email.

    Thanks!

  26. Marinka says:

    I love this idea so much that I’m going to steal it and use it as my own. I can do that, you know, because ideas can’t be copyrighted. Of course, I was also planning on stealing the words themselves, which I think is a problem, so I will need a team of lawyers to protect me.

    My suggested topic: My favorite U.S. Amendment to the Constitution.

  27. Jen says:

    I love 3am ideas–they are the best! I’d love a guest post if you can fit me in. I do a weekly eye candy post. I’d love to hear who makes your top 5, along with the reasons for your choices.

  28. Miss Britt says:

    And PS – the point is that I am writing on a topic that SOMEONE ELSE PICKED. So really, please, pretty please, pick one. Or have on in mind when I email you. :-)

  29. NYCWD says:

    Do you do guest VLOGS reviewing brands of cereal? Perhaps a nice generic brand that is a good choice for working mom’s that kids get nutrition from and will actually eat?

    I know… I basically just asked you to find The Lost Ark of the Covenant of cereals.

    Maybe a nice post on why selling your soul to Google Adsense on a personal blog is okay? I have a place for that one too.

  30. ME ME ME ME ME….I just have no time lately for blogging. PLEASE?

    It can be any topic you want. Even The Sex.

  31. Dawn says:

    Excellent!

    There are three rooms to paint, each in different colors, so you’ll need to bring the appropriate number of tray liners, brushes, rollers, etc…

    I do, however, need you to commit to a date within the next week, otherwise I’ll need to find another guest-painter. ;-)

  32. Expound on what you would do with your time if you were independantly wealthy(Smirk, ok couldn’t do that with a straight face!) and didn’t have to work. What kind of mommy and me crap would you do? Hobbies? Charitable organizations? Professional blogger? I gotta know!

  33. Faiqa says:

    I would love to have a post about one of the following:

    1) your writing process, how you grew your readership, OR how you maintain both your creativity and the organized presentation of your blog given that you have a career, husband and family.

    2) Your feelings on the concept of “middle America” and how it relates to the way you look at the world, and what changes did your worldview undergo, I suppose, when you left Iowa…I don’t know how to say that without coming off as a jerk. So, I’m sorry if I did.

    I reallly want to know the answer to the first one, though. ;)

  34. Kristin says:

    What a great idea!
    But, no one ever reads my blog and really what topic would I come up with?
    Perhaps I would like to hear your recollections on our meeting an becoming friends…..the roads we’ve traveled together?

  35. Scary Mommy says:

    I’ve never had a guest poster, but I think you rock. So…

    I’ll give you a choice: ;)

    The difficulty of being a major potty mouth and raising little people. (see my side bar story)

    or

    Gems of wisdom you wish your mother had shared with you when you were young (for me, the importance of gel, mousse & tweezers.)

  36. RW says:

    I’ll have to think of a topic, and though my audience isn’t very big they are all very smart and… uh… unafraid to call me out, and there’s a few there who haven’t read you yet. So, yeah, that would be kind of neat. I’ll come up with a topic to stretch you. Mwa haha.

  37. Honeybell says:

    I’d be all kinds of fall down dead if you guest posted for me. Because if YOU write it, THEY will come . . .

    How about the perils if raising a girl vs a boy? Because God knows that’s something I know nothing about.

  38. Jamie says:

    all right, my readership is much less than yours, about 100 a WEEK (if i’m lucky), but i’m game….i’d like you to write about your relationship with your in-laws…or lack of relationship with them…i seem to be in a tight spot at the moment with mine (taking their son away, mil is nosey and goes through my stuff and i hate it, blah blah blah) so i’d like some perspective on how others handle THEIR in-laws…

  39. Dory says:

    Hi Britt! *waves enthusiastically*

    One thing that you and I have in common. Yes, I know, that’s a BBBIIIGGG thing, but, listen. I would love to hear about IA vs FL. Maybe why you left, pros and cons, how it feels to go back (especially after the disasters). Whaddya think?!

  40. B.E. Earl says:

    Maybe a post on the appeal of guest-posting. Not for you (I get the idea that you are trying to spread the love and keep on writing), but for the person you are guest-posting for. I’ve never really understood it.

    So I guess I’m not requesting anything. Damn…I feel left out. ;)

  41. Dory says:

    Duh.

    “One thing that you and I have in common.”

    IS IOWA.

    *smacks self in forehead*

  42. Laura says:

    Me, please! And… how about Cooking With Britt? Got a favorite childhood or family recipe that you’d like to blog about, perhaps with step-by-step instructions and pictures and all that jazz?

  43. Sybil Law says:

    I would LOVE it if you wrote a post on my blog!
    Hmm…
    How about, for the topic, you talk about…
    Your most embarrassing moment in school. Or ever. I mean, I’ve read your tampon story, and I know you pretty much put it all out here (or so it seems!), but maybe from a specific age. OR your views on gun laws, or abortion, or politics. I am so not against having you write something controversial! ;)

  44. u know says:

    How about a blog on why mccain would’ve been a better prez? I don’t have a blog so u can do it on yours if u want. let me know babe! p.s. i’m not trying to take away from your excitement. I want you to write it from the perspective of a registered immigrant.

  45. RW says:

    Write about me. We’re a rather unlikely pair of associates. Sometimes you don’t even like me. Which is kinda cool.

    There ya go!

  46. I completely think that you should totally ballrack Avitable again, just for funsies. Or if you need a reason, I’m sure he took the last Diet Coke or something.

  47. I found your blog through Hilly’s and have been quietly enjoying for a couple of months. I would love for you to write a guest post on mine because I like your style, and your use of the word awesomely! I’d love to hear about your thoughts on friendship. What makes a good friend, what will piss you off to no end, do you make friends easily or take your time getting to know someone? It’s interesting for me, who tends to be very reserved in the friend department, how others go about making friends both on and off the Internet.

  48. Peg says:

    This would be great for me. I have the perfect topic that I’ve wondered for years about.

    We’ll talk about it in email.

  49. thedemigod says:

    *picks a number and gets in line

    Came here through Avitable (or was it the other way around, I’ll never remember) but yes, PLEASE guest post in my blog. You got to pop its guest-post cherry. :P

    I’d love to hear your thoughts on the female characters in Ayn Rand’s novels: either Dominic Francon or Dagny Taggart. She’s bril, but so fucking dark! I’d love to see your splash of humor on them.

    Barring that, you could write about your take on the Seventh-Day Adventist church.

    I’m weird, aren’t I? :P

  50. that guy says:

    How about I just dare you to lower the intellectual bar of my blog?

    I have no idea how I found your blog, but I’m blaming narf.

  51. @ that guy –
    britt would do nothing but bring your fun blog a splash of color and RAISE the intelligence level. hehe
    regardless, i love that you would ask her to guest post. awesome!

  52. Fogspinner says:

    I’d love for you to guest post over at my blog too. However I have just about 3 readers so you wouldn’t expand your readership much.

    Topic:

    How to find make peace with your spouse without using sex as a band-aide. Or picking up the pieces without sex as a tool/weapon/salve/cure.

  53. Ok I will totally forgive you if you think that you now have too many requests to do more.
    But I would love to have you on my blog.
    How about writing on…
    From a married woman’s perspective: single girls in their 30′s, internet dating, what our lives look like to you, sans children etc etc
    Kinda vague I know, but do you sorta get where I’m going there??
    xoxo

  54. Damn. That “u know” guy kinda stole my idea – I was just going to recommend writing the positives of a McCain/Palin presidency. C’mon, even you should be able to find at least one awesome thing about him. [And it'd have to be Serious Passionate Britt speaking, not Snarky Sarcastic Britt]

    But, if that’s too tough for an experienced writer like yourself [tongue in cheek triple dawg dare], you could always write about how you unknowingly offended some drunk girl at a party and how she kicked herself for missing the opportunity to meet you. [Obviously this would totally be a work of fiction.]

  55. Allyson says:

    Ok, well, we all know I could use some awesomeness on my blog. I’m fresh out, and I think I like the topic of tradition. What traditions do you keep from your childhood? What new ones have you started with your family? Why did you choose the ones you kept? The ones you let go of?

  56. DemMom says:

    I’d love a guest post! I’d love for you to write something about why/how you got so passionate and involved in this year’s election. I assume you have not always been so active. Why was this year different? I’ve been involved in politics, professionally for years, as have many of my friends. But I think a perspective from outside that “bubble” would be interesting. You did so much more than go to a rally and hand out fliers. Blogging and technology have changed the ways in which non-professionals can participate, and I’d like to hear about it. And, selfishly, I hope you’ll link to all your guest posts because only about 2 people read my blog now and I’d like a little more attention!

  57. Dana says:

    I totally would dig it if you’d GP for me! I’ll have to think of a topic, though….looks like you’ve got lots of ideas and takers! :)

  58. Clown says:

    You only wish you could guest post for me.

  59. Robin says:

    I would love for you to write a guest post for me! Something about patience, please. I am a very impatient person, and I could use some inspiration.

  60. Cris says:

    So if I asked you to write about how reading Opprobrious (my blog) made your naughty parts tingle… you’d DO IT? Cool!

  61. I’ve never had a guest blogger before so sure,be my guest!

    I’;; leave you with a couple of suggestions as to what You might like to write about & you pick whichever one appeals to you.

    Any stories of EMS- Emergency Medical Services, Ambulances you called or called for you and your experience in them (my fellow medics like that kind of thing)

    How do you “keep your head on straight.”

    Punching Avitable in the nutsack- Hard to do or fun as Hell?

    I await your communication.

  62. I would love to be a person you guest post for.

    As for my topic? I’d like to know, after all the reading you’ve done on me, and having met me in person at BrittCon, what kind of person I come accross as on the internet. I’d like the bold face truth. Like, did you think I was stalkerish, then once you got to know me better, realized I’m just needy? that kind of thing.

    feel free to take your time, read my archives, etc. and of course, when you get to me, you get to me. Just gimme 48 hours notice, so I can start announcing on my blog that you will be posting.

    thanks! and awesome idea!

  63. Shania says:

    Perfect topic….what about Prince is so damn sexy. Also how Purple Rain influenced your adolescence and were you ever ashamed of your musical preferences because everybody else liked the Oak Ridge Boys? (no, I’m not projecting at all, why?)

    Given that I’m number 873, I won’t expect this until sometime before the next election!

  64. jester says:

    I want a guest post from you… and here’s the topic:

    “How my marriage is negatively impacted when gays are allowed to marry.”

  65. Mindy says:

    I would be honored if you would do a guest post for me. Although I am not sure what the topic is yet.

  66. kateanon says:

    Wow, I think you might be a masochist.

    I would LOVE IT if you posted for me. Topic: let me think… how about a time you made a decision just for you? Or how about something revealing, a secret you wish to share. Or hell, about something you want that you’re hoping for. I’ll think of more suggestions in the meantime (knowing after all these responses, it will be a while before you can do it)

  67. Oh you are going to be one BUSY lady! I would love for you to write on my blog. I love to keep my blog light and funny…usually about family…so anything on that topic would be great!

  68. Sarah says:

    I blame school because the only thing that is going through my head is binary fission. And I would never make you write about that, I like you way too much for that.

  69. RW says:

    jester wins the thread!

  70. Lauren says:

    I totally do want you to write a guest post on my blog and I would like the topic to be, “Food I’ve seen and places I’ve eaten and the goods and the bads of those things.”

  71. Poppy says:

    I do not want you to guest post on my blog. I feel weird about the whole guest posting idea. I didn’t know why before, but I finally worked it out over the weekend. I like it better when you post on your blog. (And I’m not singling you out.)

  72. Krystle says:

    Yay! But since you have 962 comments already, I’m not sure that you’re still looking for more!

    As far as a topic… (and I know this may be in your about you section, but whatever…)

    How did you begin blogging? What grabbed you and pulled you in? What are you feelings of meeting people online? Did you ever expect to find such wonderful friends online and via blogging? OH OH OH, annnd HOW did you and Adam meet wayyyyy back when, and how did you get to where you are right now, from Iowa to Florida?!

    There, anything to help you!

  73. rebturtle says:

    In 10,000 words or less; What exactly is Gonzo, and why does he love chickens?

  74. Pamela says:

    I would love a guest post. I don’t even need it to be this calendar year. How’s April work for you? Then you’ll have plenty of time to finish up with everybody else, and you can write about “The Neverending Perks of Guest Blogging”, and I can finish baking this here baby, and there’ll be fun things on my blog when I pop.

  75. Courtney says:

    Sure, it could be fun. I’ve never had anyone guest post for me before. Let’s see… a topic… I want to hear your take on eating disorders and how much of an inflluence you think that the media plays in shaping young girls self-esteems.

  76. Darla says:

    PICK ME~! Topic: Iowa Living. I know you’re completely shocked.

  77. ~jtm says:

    Miss Britt….what a great idea. I’d love to have a guest post by you but unfortunately I have no topic idea… that’s my main problem with my blog, no idea what to write about. Anyway, sounds like a great project and I look forward to reading the posts. You have a very poetic way with words. ::envy::

  78. Meghann says:

    I would love, love, love, love for you to guest post. That would be fantastical!!!

    I would love to hear your take on the Wiccan religion and other religions like it (neo-paganism, paganism, etc).

    This could be fun, fun, fun!

  79. [...] this:  you tell me the topic you’d like me to write about – it could be anything.  This idea originally came from Miss Britt and I thought it was such a fabulous one, I thought I would do this [...]

  80. Gina says:

    I have thought of three topic ideas for your guest post on my blog. E-mail and I will let you know what I came up with…

  81. Howard says:

    Good lord, girl. How in the hell are you going to guest blog on this many sites? There are 83… oops. I guess, I’ll be 84 comments.

    BTW, I’m totally drunk commenting right now and I think it’s hilARious. I’ll think about this later.

    If you have the time, I would love for you to guest post on my site with an essay about why everything is funny when you’ve survived a disease that can kill like.. oh, I don’t know…. CANCER!

    I’m totally drunk right now just so you know, so please feel free to completely trash me later. Get it? Trash me! I’m so damn funny.

    Seriously though, I’d love to know why surviving a fatal disease makes you appreciate the ability to laugh.

  82. Howard says:

    Fine, so I was 82. Damn, I’m not that funny after all.

  83. PAPA says:

    You have written that book. You have written two books. You live in Prague and study Architecture. You walk in Miu Miu high heels. Clackety, clack.

    Take me into the future and show me a day in the life of you as Miss Britt Bigtime. Living the life. Your full life.

    What IS this life?

    (Incidentally, I’m starting a recurring series with this same idea on my site soon. I’m intrigued to know people’s dreams/passions/life pursuits. Oh, and say WHATEVER you want. You can’t edit your life story. Maybe, just maybe, you DON’T wear Miu Miu.)

  84. I’ve never had a guest blogger before. So, therefore, please write about the time you took my virginity. The post must PG-13, though, and contain the following words: mountainous, novacaine, hankering and staple gun.

    You’re a brave one, Miss B. Cheers.

  85. Stephanie says:

    I have thought about closing up shop over on my blog lately. Major.Burn.Out.

    Plus I suck at writing. There’s that.

    I would love a guest post about shoes and Prince, duh, but since that seems rather shallow and too much like something I’d write myself, how about this; The obvious bias/prejudice against overweight/obese people. Why is it socially acceptable to openly mock/make fun of/demean those with weight issues, and how this affects self worth, self confidence, and ability to advance oneself in society.

    Near and dear to mah heart, Britters.

  86. Rachael says:

    It’s like Christmas in November here! Since I’m such a movie & tv lover I would love to hear about your favorite movie & tv show of all time, and the movie and/or tv show that you absolutely hated more than anything ever.

  87. suze says:

    Judging from the number of comments you have here, I think you aren’t hurting for people who want you to guest blog. But if you’re looking for one more challenge, I’m offering up my blog. You’ve already mentioned it on your blog, but I would be interested in having you blog about body image – specifically why it is you think women, no matter their size, have body image issues.

  88. Kimberly says:

    “You can be my wingman anytime. Bullshit – you can be mine.”

    Whatever that means but yes, I’d love for you to guest post on my blog.

    A topic?

    Prop 8.

  89. Hey! I’d take a Guest post. Possible topic: A “big thing” you’ve learned through travel. Alternatively, a country (or continent, if you must) that is on your “list” and why.

  90. JoeInVegas says:

    Heather sent me, and sure, I’ll take a post. How about the way you Southerners (Florida/South/No?) view Vegas. I always wonder about the people with big eyes when they walk around the Strip.

  91. Okay, now I’m terribly jealous that you came up with this first! :) I’d love for you to write an awesome post on my blog — I’d be honoured to host your entry, there.

    Because hell, I’m sure people are sick of all my trainwreck stories.

    Topic? How about you write about something that you are absolutely passionate about? Or, if you’d like another topic (because I’m nice that way), how about a quick story on one day when your life changed. What happened?

    I see there’s 92 comments here, so, don’t worry if you can’t get to mine. It’s a great idea, and I may steal it! (although, I think I’d change it up a bit to make it a two-way street). Good luck with all the writing!

  92. Casey says:

    I’d like a guest post. My topic of choice would be…..mmmmn, let’s do marriage since I am a newlywed. I have multiple blogs so I supposed you could choose which one you want to post on. :)

  93. Rachel says:

    You are too much. So adorable. What a great idea. I know you will eventually get noticed, i love reading you and I’d totally buy a paperback that you wrote ;-p

    Enjoy those frappies and I’ll enjoy blog popping to see where all you appear.

    You’ll be writing until next friggin’ March trying to get all these in ;-)

  94. Tori Blaine says:

    I’d love one, just for the traffic :)

    OK… so we all agree that we can find (and lose) best friends on the internet… but can we find love?

    I’m not talking dating sites or casual hook ups, can the relationships we find blogging blossom into more? Does blogging make it easier to get to no someone, or just easier to know their persona?

  95. anne says:

    I would totally love you to guest post on my blog. Totally.

    I’d love for you to post about motherhood and working full-time. I love what I do but I’m having such a hard time leaving my little stinky, especially when he’s so young – I’ve been back to work for two weeks already and he’s just hit three months old. The pressure of being the main wage-earner is hard.

    Either that, or How to Be Fun 101. Your pick :-)

  96. Nikki says:

    If I had a blog (which I consider starting often), I would totally have you guest post.

    I hope you’ll link to all of your guest posts so that your readers can, um, read them.

    This idea is as awesome as the time you had everyone link to their own favorite blog post. I found so many good blogs to read that way!

  97. J... says:

    Hmmm…interesting idea for 3 am. Bet you are regretting it now! Hopefully you will find the experience you are looking for with this. :)

    My best friend who is deployed to Iraq right now likes to ask hard hitting questions that make people dig deep to find the answers, so in her honor, here is my topic:

    If you could free yourself from one burden in your life, what would it be? How would you do it? How would it change you?

  98. Ginger says:

    Yes, I would love for you to guest post for me. Topic: why curly haired blonde moms have more fun.

  99. [...] post is part of Miss Britt’s guest post challenge.  Because she?  Is a fucking moron.  In other words, she wrote [...]

  100. [...] was the first person to answer my call for guest post topics and this was his request.  The phrase that popped out at me was I’m sincerely interested in [...]

  101. Robin says:

    I SO want you to do this for me…I had an idea but I can’t articulate it now for some reason….maybe because it’s nearly 2 AM and I feel like I should be asleep. Oh yeah! Love. I want you to do a guest-post for me about falling in love with boys as well as yourself…e-mail me!!

  102. kaila says:

    What a wonderful experiment.
    Since we are both in Florida, how about a post on Hurricane preparedness? Or maybe hurricane parties? You would have to stress the importance of beer, liquor, ice & batteries.

  103. Turnbaby says:

    Oh my–I thought I’d left a comment here but….

    Hmmm–I think a post on ‘girlfriend time’ and how it differs from hanging out with a mixed group would be awesome.

    I haven’t read all of the above so if I am repeating sorry ;-)

  104. Shit shit shit.
    Just stumbled over here today and scrolling down to here and, bugger, I’ve totally missed the party haven’t I?

    If you ever manage to write the 102 requests you’ve had, I’d like one on The Hottest Male Stars of Children’s TV.

    I’m free around 2010!

  105. [...] post is part of The Guest Post Challenge. Thanks, Angie, for the topic and space on your blog. Bookmark This Post [...]

  106. Ren says:

    I didn’t comment when you first posted this as I simply didn’t think I had a level of readership to warrant a guest post. Plus, I figured @whall would be upset if you beat him to the punch!

    For some reason, I’ve changed my mind and would love a post from you on the subject of kids and social networking.

  107. PocketCT says:

    OK I got it now. I was at a potluck and someone asked me what I write about on my blog and I said holidays and whatever else comes into my head.

    Since you can’t write about what is in my head (or can you?) I say your topic is to write about a holiday that we don’t have that you wish we did. This can be a holiday that is from elsewhere (Holi is my personal favorite where you throw dye at people and run around multi-colored)

    I will add that to my 2009 calendar which I will be giving away for free, soon. I will also be giving sheets of stickers to stick on all the people who have another calendars (like hot blogger calendars and stuff) with all the goofy holidays that are on my calendar.

    Everyone wants to celebrate Absurdity Day right? (11/20)

  108. Jenni says:

    Hell yes! Write one for me!

    Here’s the topic… I’d like you to write about your reaction and opinion to THIS article:

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/27705755/?gt1=43001

  109. Jeremy says:

    Britt-

    I’d love to have you as a (guest) contributor on ListenToMeBitch.com, your sarcastic wit would fit right in.

    As for the topic: something non-political that pisses you off / you feel like bitching about…

  110. oh! PICK ME!! PICK ME!!

    Am I too late? I’m ALWAYS too late…

    I would love for you to guest post on my blog. I would like for you to write about WHY JELLO IS UNSAFE FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION.

    Or a topic of your choosing…. :)

  111. [...] part of The Guest Post Challenge going on at my blog, Modern Mami has allowed me to post over here on the condition that I answer [...]

  112. Jenni says:

    So I’m always late with the comments! I have had this post saved in my reader for months, and never did anything with it because I was planning on giving up on blogging anyways.

    Now that I’ve revamped my blog, and started actually reading the feeds in my reader again, I came across this post today.

    I would love to have you write a post for me. I’d like you to write about whether you think you are a high maintenance person or low maintenance, and WHY. Feel free to interject your usual snarky sense of humor. It’s a must.
