Today’s special presentation is brought to you by the funny and fabulous Jessica Rapisarda of Welcome to the Bundle. If you don’t know her, what’s wrong with you? Just kidding, you’re fine, but allow me to introduce you.
For that alone, you should like her.
Here’s some more.
Why did you decide to start a blog, and did you have any idea what you were getting yourself into?
In early 2014, my pal Lauren Boston (of laurenbostonblog.com fame) suggested I try out for Listen to Your Mother DC. Because I suffer from intense stage fright, I decided that seemed like a really good idea. Frankly, I did not expect to be cast, but I was. My euphoria lasted a hot second before it gave way to anxiety cramping. Almost everyone in the show actively blogged, and all of the publicity info proudly linked to these blogs. By comparison, my bio read like a how-to-be-sad-and-boring manual: “Jessica is a wife, mom, and technical editor. At one point in her life, she wanted to write poetry, but now she wants to pay off her student loans and get a pedicure from time to time.”
Right, so I started a blog to seem cool. I’m failing miserably, but I’m having fun.
OFM: You are NOT. Don’t talk about yourself that way. I won’t hear of it. Plus, I find blogging isn’t as easy as they make it out to be.
How long have you been at this racket?
My blog is only 9 months old, so there’s less spit-up than in the early days, but there’s still a lot of drool.
OFM: See what she did there? Her blog is her baby.
