Want to Guest Post for Me?

Guest Post Whiteboard

UPDATE: I’m now booking guest posts into the second half of 2013. See below if interested!


When I turned on my laptop this morning, I was greeted by this notice:

100 Days

It’s a bit like being pregnant: I’m not sure if 100 days is long or short. It’s roughly equivalent to one trimester in human gestation, six lifespans of a female mosquito, and a nanosecond of an elephant’s pregnancy.

The subtitle of my book,  Don’t Lick the Minivan, is “Things I Never Thought I’d Say to my Kids.” Keeping track of the unexpected, idiotic things I say is also the concept of a feature I occasionally run here at Ironic Mom called Whiteboard Wednesday.


Today, I’m issuing a call for Guest Posts for Whiteboard Wednesday. Is there something bizarre that you’ve said to your kids? If you’re not a parent or would prefer not to write about your children, is there something strange you’ve said to nieces/nephews, colleagues, teachers, the Best Buy check-out guy, your pet?


  • contains a funny/bizarre line you said to someone
  • is between 50-500 words
  • is a humorous slice-of-life piece (feel free to refer to previous Whiteboard Wednesday posts to get an idea of the tone)
  • includes a 50-word bio written in third person (with links, if you wish) and a photo of you
  • (please note: you don’t need to be a blogger to participate…)


If you’re interested, please drop me an email at IronicMom(at)gmail(dot)com. Please put “Guest Post” in the header because I am exceptionally gifted at losing emails in folders and inboxes.

You don’t need to attach the post yet; I’ll assign you a date and a deadline…then you can get out your funny. When it’s done, I’ll format it, shove your bizarre phrase onto a whiteboard, and promote the guest post on my social media networks.

Hope to see you in my inbox.
May “Happy Monday” not be oxymoronic.

    Sounds fun! I’m buried right now myself but you never know what might come to mind. If my kids make me ‘wax poetic’ in the cool ironicmom sort of way … you’ll be the first to know! 😉

    Yes, I do. I do want to guest post for you. I can do my husband’s obsession with the Rubik’s cube that he can’t do. Shhh, I think I hear him coming, the tell tale clickclick of the rotating tiers give him away every time.

    Ok, I’m in. I’ll email you. I usually keep track of the crazy things my kids say to me, but if I have until August (or later) I’m sure I can try to clue in to my own crazy words. There’s gotta be something, right?

    Exciting news about the book countdown. 100 days seems really short!
