Wanted: Guest Bloggers

I will post a short excerpt from St. Thomas More tomorrow, but for now I interrupt this Holy Week schedule with a call for help.

I'm having some issues typing, and I fear it's a darkly sinister issue with my wrist. As such, I want to lay off of the computer for a few weeks and pray it clears itself up. However, in the meantime I don't have a neat stash of pre-written blog posts just waiting to be published (unless you count the Love Story posts, tehehehe).

So, for the next few weeks, I'd like to keep CWCL going by showcasing the volunteered writing talents of guest bloggers.

If you're interested in submitting one or a few pieces, please send me an e-mail at: happywife at citywifecountrylife dot com

General submission guidelines:

Topic of your choosing, but closely related to the topics generally posted about here (e.g. homesteading, marriage, photography, recipes, etc.)
Less than 500 words (300-400 is even better)

Good but not required:
Funny or witty

Does not need to be an original submission! So if you have an already-published post (that you wrote) you think the readers here would enjoy, please share it.

Thank you very much for helping a gal in need!

Does it hurt when you put pressure on it, too? I had a similar problem once, which was not carpel tunnel, though my doc assumed it was without even checking. :-( Actually, a cheap tennis-type wrist band helped. It put pressure on the part that was bulging (I think it was called a ganglia) and it healed up in time.

Actually it doesn't hurt at all-- it just went weak and lost strength -- I can't hold anything in it :(. I'm hoping it's not ct, though whenever I do repetitive motions I feel an electric shock go up my arm, which is why I had to give up cake decorating a few years ago :(.

So Jennie, you are going to guest blog about your jersey cows, riiiight? :-D

Jennie said...

I don't know. That's a lot of pressure. :-)

Well I have a bread recipe to make for Easter that I wouldn't mind sharing. I can't guarantee funny, but I can guarantee pictures!

Kathryn said...

Yes please? Something about cows, or maybe about cheese making? :-D

Marie said...

Love Jersey Cows!

Farmer's City Wife said...

Sounds great!

I will put some thought into it. :) Will pray your wrist gets better soon, though!

Masha said...

Praying it's not CT, and that you'll be feeling better soon.

An idea: if you can't find guest bloggers, you can post a link to another blog article you enjoyed reading. Here's one for starters that your readers might enjoy:

I hope your wrists feel better soon!!

Thanks, and thanks!

Thanks! I'd hoped it would go away overnight, but it's worse today :(. Prayers appreciated!
