I've had this happen. One way around the problem is guest-posting - write a post and hand it off to one of your fellow bloggers to use when they're on vacation, swamped elsewhere, or have a case of the lazies.
But if your story is something that you want to say, and you think others might appreciate - especially if it's about a person/event/group/thing that deserves a slap - why not give them a Mushroom Print? Not sure what that is? Well, let me tell you. Actually - let them tell you. Straight from their About page:
There are a hell of a lot of things in the world that are annoying. Fleas, poo-eating dogs, the guy who wrote the “Dollop of Daisy” commercial, and people who drive UNDER the speed limit in the fast lane.
Because we’re not all insane, we can’t exactly go around vigilante-style and inform the assholes of the world that they are, in fact, assholes. So what’s The Internet to do?
I’m glad you asked, Printers, because that’s where Mushroom Printing comes in. Here’s where we can give a hearty smack down to the people who deserve it. This is a group blog where we can share all of the things that bug us.
What’s a Mushroom Print, Aunt Becky? I hear many of you ask through the computer. Or I pretend I do because that is how Your Aunt Becky rolls.
It’s simple, Printers: a Mushroom Print is a very crude term for smacking someone in the face, in our case, deservedly, with a certain member of the human body, usually found on a male.
In short, a Mushroom Print is a dick-slap.
Let’s be clear, this isn’t a hate blog. Posts will be moderated and edited and deleted if they’ve been determined to be full of The Hate.
Now, are you ready to lay the smack down?I'm telling you - it's easy, and so, so worth it. Visit their site, get a login and - bam! You're a printer. You login to their wordpress site, write your post and submit. Pretty soon, the world is hearing what you're saying - and people are agreeing with you. Yes - because there is always going to be someone on the interwebz who finds the same things annoying. I promise.
You can also follow them on twitter - and keep up with what everyone else thinks is annoying, too.
