Tomorrow is Military Spouse Appreciation Day! And that means that tomorrow is also the 2012 Military Spouse Appreciation Day Blog Hop co-hosted by yours truly and Household 6 Diva.
So what the heck is an introduction post and why do I need it? Well, what happens in a blog hop is that a whole bunch of people hop around the blogosphere meeting other bloggers just like you as a type of virtual meet and greet. And what do you do in a meet and greet? You introduce yourself! That's what you need to do for tomorrow. Write a little post telling all of your new visitors about yourself. This is called your party post. When Household 6 Diva and I put up the linky tomorrow, you will copy the link to your party post (NOT the main link to your blog!) and paste it into the linky (I promise the linky is self-explanatory). Then you stroll around the list and read all the other fun party posts, leaving sweet comments as you go like you would handshakes and smiles.
Need an idea of what to write and how long your party post should be? Well, here's how my intro goes...
In case you don't know me, I go by Wife on the Roller Coaster but I also respond to Roller Coaster or just plain old RC. I decided to name my blog Riding the Roller Coaster because I always found myself telling people what a roller coaster ride military life is, with its ups and downs and unpredictability. After 2 and a half years of blogging, I'd say that name still fits.
I blog anonymously so you rarely get a whole lot of personal details out of me. I'm a military spouse rapidly approaching my late 30's. My husband is an active-duty service member, and we've been married for 12 years. We have 2 military brats: Big C is our 8-year-old son and Little C is our 4-year-old daughter. I'm currently winding down my second year of teaching kindergarten, and I'm a freelance writer in my spare time. (Spare time? Really. What's that?!)
I typically blog about whatever comes to mind. That includes, but is not limited to: military life, motherhood, the nose-picking of my students, the cattiness of my co-workers, the naughtiness of my Labrador Retriever, my love for top 10 lists, my addiction to half marathons, and my dream that one day I'll be able to balance it all.
I'm pretty active on Facebook, so you can visit me over there. I have a Twitter account too, but honestly, I don't really get Twitter. Facebook is way more fun in my opinion.
So that's me in a nutshell. Feel free to share pictures in your party post too. Everyone loves pictures.
Thanks for stopping by! Now get started on your party post, and I'll see you tomorrow! And don't forget to post the blog hop button either in your party post or your sidebar (can't win a giveaway without out)!
