Heck to the N-O! I consider my first year of blogging a smashing success. I've gotten my feet wet, gotten paid for blogging, made wonderful friends and connections, and have been proud of what I have done here. Also, it is an excellent day to announce my book! Well, I say "my book," but it belongs to many.
It's a humor anthology called My Funny Major Medical and I have two blog pieces in it - the ones about my mammograms this year. If you are a long-time faithful Everyday Underwear follower, you'll remember The Ma'ams-o-gram and Ma'ams-o-gram: Take Two, with a Twist in which I talk about my boobs, the pain, and Jesus holding my boob (in prayer!) to the end of chuckle-worthy results. All came out fine with my mammos, and thanks to a thread on LinkedIn which I just happened to comment on and mentioned my boob work (LOL! - snort), I got the opportunity to submit the pieces and they were accepted.
I am in the company of some wonderful humorists, such as 2010 Erma Bombeck Global Humor Winner, Barb Best and award winning and Nationally Syndicated Columnist, Saralee Perel plus many other talented folks, both male and female, telling their medical funny bone breaking tales.
I'm happy to have this blog, the relationships I've come to have with all of you, and the ability to write despite my recent challenges. I'm even taking steps to plan attendance at my very first writer's conference. I'm so excited, I could pee my pants! I won't, since I'm not wearing a diaper, but you get what I mean.
I thank all of you for coming along on this ride with me this past year - the making of Everyday Underwear. I will continue to do my best to entertain you further! Remember, no thongs allowed.
