Why not put together a blogging anthology?

A long time ago, in a land far, far away, a blogger got a wild hair up her ass. She thought "Why not put together a blogging anthology? Hell's bells.......why not put together a mommy blogging anthology? "

And then, Gentle Reader, she did exactly that.

Ah, if only it were that easy. But still - she did it.

Of course, I am very excited for me, since I am also a contributor. To be included in such a stunning group of writers is an incredible honor for me. To be sure, friendship has its perks. But mostly, I am simply over the moon for my friend. Rita has worked tirelessly on this project in the face of adversity. She was met with many a blank stare and so very many naysayers who simply did not understand the blogging medium or why anyone would even care about what a mommy blogger could have to say.

To see a friend accomplish a dream after much hard, tenacious work is absolutely awe inspiring.

Rita, we may have written the pieces and submitted them, but you had the pure grit to compile them and then get it in the hands of publishers. You go, girl.

P.S. You might want to re-think the ironic title of your blog.

I love people who don't give up. It's such an in-your-face middle finger gesture to all the naysayers...except in the most polite, positive and life-affirming way (and in the end you get to stick out your tongue and say "nyah nyah"). I'm so happy it worked out for Surrender Dorothy. A big congratulations to her.
