Last weekend I submitted my first guest blog post about my family’s recent trip to Tucson, Arizona. It is not that I haven’t been asked before to supply some words of wisdom (ha!) to others’ blogs but this was the first one that I followed through on. Although I wasn’t 100% thrilled with the outcome (will I ever be?), I clicked send and pushed it to the editor nonetheless and the rest is history. Did I mention that I even took the pictures for the blog? Everyone got involved in making sure the pictures were the best they could be. It was like a family post rather than just my post.
The weirdest part was just how long it took me to write when it was for another person. Normally, I can crank out even the longest blog post in about an hour, complete with corrections, but the travel blog took me four hours. Yes, four hours. But maybe my memory is a little off today; after all, it has been a full week since I submitted the blog but all I know is I was still in my pajamas well past noon.
I just wanted you to know that so you could find me at Milliver’s Travels, too.
