Love makes the world go round
I would like to request a guest post from you. Like the last time, the concept for my February 2011 posts will again be LOVE. I want to make it guest posts from married/engaged bloggers who are willing to share their love stories, how they met their husbands/fiances or something related to that of their choice. I’ll be grateful if you’d be able to be part of it.
To say I was keen would be an understatement. Myne is self-published but she’s also a great networker. She is extremely resourceful and has been interviewed by numerous magazines, e-zines, newspapers, bloggers and various other media. She has a large followership on her blog and I was really excited at the prospect of being profiled there.
I didn’t manage to actually write and send the story till the 7th of February. In the meantime, since the beginning of the month, she’s been posting stories of other bloggers including my friend, Joxy’s which I have enjoyed reading tremendously. Even though I wrote it, I was looking forward to reading my story too. I’m subscribed to her blog so I receive an email whenever she updates it however due to the different time zones we both live in, the emails come in at odd times of the day.
Last night, after I put the boys to bed, I came down to see a Facebook message from Joxy saying she was enjoying my story on Myne’s blog. I told her I didn’t realise she’d posted it and went over to read it myself. You could have knocked me over with a feather when I saw that instead of the story I’d sent her, it was Mo Cushla’s side of the story!
I had told him about Myne’s request and without letting me know he’d gone to my laptop, taken her email address and contacted her asking if he could surprise me by writing and having her post his side of the story. I was gobsmacked and very pleasantly surprised. I couldn’t stop grinning. I was really touched by this gesture and it spoke volumes to me. The best part of it all was Myne published his story on the 16th of February 2011, the anniversary of the day we actually met 8 years ago! Then she posted my story today as a sequel to Mo Cushla’s.
A big thank you to Myne for profiling both Mo Cushla’s and my love story. An even bigger thank you to Mo Cushla for surprising me in such a delightful and special way, I love you.
Finally thank you to everyone who’s visited my blog as a result of reading the stories on Myne’s. I hope you come back again and again.
Tara for now.
