→ Gallery EntryPresenting our first "Exclusive" post, where we've had the honor to have a little Q. and A session with the blogger behind the gallery featured blog, 'The incoherent rambling's of a single parent.'
What is your name?/Introduce yourself
Tell us about your blog.
The incoherent ramblings of a single parent, Initially started out as a serious blog examiming the hardships faced by being a single parent. But in all honesty, writing about loneliness and alienation proved to be a depressing experience in itself. The thing was, that I didn't want it to turn into just another 'mommy' blog either or, a diary about the wonderful joys of motherhood. (somebody let me know when the joyous part kicks in) Instead I chose to take real-life situations and events and to add a few twists, albeit with the help of a little bit of exaggeration and a whole lot of embellishments. Hence posts on the fact that my EVIL child is trying to kill me (which he is), an argument between the Devil and God or which one DOESN'T get my soul when I die and a lovely heartwarming tale that goes by the title of, 'The tale of the little boy and the very big poo'.
I can already hear my name being called out for the Pulitzer Prize Award.
Describe a popular feature/post or a favorite feature/post of your blog.
I wouldn't really class it as a popular feature but I do enjoy the conversational pieces that I write, especially between myself and my little man.
These are actual based on real conversations that we have, though many people tend to think othewise.
Do you have any blogging tips you'd like to share, or have any advice for fellow bloggers or would be bloggers?
Write for yourself . If you try to cater to what you think people want to read, then you start to lose some of the essence that made your work original to begin with.
In other words, Stay true to what you do. (Oooh, I made a rhyme)
Tell us about your personal favorite blog or blogs, or share one that you would recommend to others.
There are many blogs that I love reading but the ones that I read religiously are
'Diary of a crap wife'
'left alone with a full moon'
'I'd like cheese on my entire family.'
♥ This concludes our very first Exclusive entry. We'd like to thank Lily Jo from The incoherent ramblings of a single parent for taking the time to participate. I hope you enjoy her blog as much as I have. Stay tuned for the next installment of the Exclusive, where we'll share our Q and A session with another gallery featured blogger.
