So I was hanging with Joshua after signing permissions slips and checking homework and all that boring crap. We were watching Chuggaaconroy (it’s okay if you don’t know what that means – you will before long) and I had just had a proud moment in which I revealed to Joshua that the Mac in the “I’m a Mac, I’m a PC” commercials is Justin Long (I still can’t believe that I knew that, and he didn’t). Somewhere in all of that – oh, right, Joshua had said something about being lazy, and I told him I’d said as much on my blog the other night. And I told him I also said “taco.” A bunch of times, actually. And he, oh-so-casually, says, “You know, maybe I could write for your blog sometimes.” It only took about a millisecond for me to be pumped about the idea and excited to offer him first crack tonight.
So, Femme Flavor will now feature the occasional guest post from Joshua, and we’ll figure out what that will look like as we go. There will be some ground rules, which we’ve already begun discussing, and I will edit and work with him on all posts before approving them for publication and sharing the link around.
One thing this will mean is that his peers, minors, will be visiting the site. I already have it set to a maximum rating for search engines, but I’m going to think about what this means for categorization and social networking. More on that when I’ve had a chance to figure out the minutia.
In the meantime, I hope you’re all as excited about this development as I am, and that you’ll welcome Joshua and give his posts some love.
Stay tuned for the first guest post later this evening!
