- Well, it's eleven o'clock on a Tuesday night and this is the first moment I've had to sit down and write that wasn't lesson plans.
- And I get to do it all again in the morning!
- I've known (since that first year) that summer school is going to be a rough time, but I never quite GET it until the second week starts.
- Oh my God, what the hell am I thinking?
- At least after the first three weeks I'll have the lesson plans and curriculum written for session two. That's probably about ten hours a week right now.
- It has become apparent to me that I will not be able to really get guest posts up until I take an admin weekend to dig through and clean out my mailbox of current posts, pending requests, written posts that I've said "Absolutely I'll psot this," but have literally put into a folder and need to go through, and statements of interest.
- So I'm going to do that this weekend.
- Oh yes.
- Boy howdy.
- Thus, it's not too late to get in on this round of guest blogging submissions, but read the guidelines very, very, very carefully. I'll know if you don't, and I won't be able to hold your hand through the process this time round.
- INCOHERENT SCREAMING!
- Seriously if you're going to submit your writing, you have to follow directions. I can be nice about this and hold your hand and send you back messages like "Oh, you seem to have drifted away from the topic of writing a bit," when I'm not working an extra 25-30 hours a week, but right now I have to just ignore folks who send me stuff that isn't playing by the rules. I apologize for that, but it's where I am right now.
- MOAR INCOHERENT SCREAMING!!
- If you've blogged for me before in any capacity, you might consider a second pass. I'm now making more like 5000-10,000 page views per day and about 1200 minimum on an article (for more self promotion) and make JUUUUUUUUST enough money to be able to pay writers a little bit per article (and a bit more if their article does well).
- Am I seriously trying to get a blog post up at 11:30? It's time to question my life choices.
