Guest Posts

This is a topic that I’ve been thinking about for awhile. Though I was planning to wait until I grew a larger following, patience is not one of my strong points.

If you haven’t read any of my posts before, I predominately write poetry and posts about my own journey through life.

My battles with addiction, anxiety and depression. Living with PTSD and the other laundry list of mental health conditions I’ve been diagnosed with over the years.

Honestly, I never thought this many people would be interested in what I had to say, but I am humbled by it, and it leaves me with a question?

Why me in particular, because I follow and read some people on here that are amazing writers, with very few followers (Not that I am swimming in followers, but I am growing quickly)

The only thing I can think of, is that I write consistently and constantly (Mostly a combination of my OCD and my love of writing).

I write to share my story, but I am not alone in that regard. So maybe I can help with exposure, because it’s hard to write consistently when you think no ones listening.

That being said, I didn’t write this to talk about myself (doing a pretty shit job there), I wrote this for anyone that follows me.

If you feel like you would like to post something on this blog, because you want to get your story out there, that is something I am now offering to do.

Email me at; oneregulardad@gmail.com

I figured that this is easier then messaging a bunch of people that aren’t interested.

Anyway just a thought, if I get enough interest in this I’ll figure out the logistics of it.

If you don’t want to guest post, but you have any comments about this, please let me know. I’d really like some feedback on this.

As always, have a great day.

    I enjoy doing guest posts, though they take a lot of work because I’m a perfectionist and don’t want to put something on other people’s blogs that isn’t better than what I post on mine. I did one guest post so far and it took me two weeks! Lol. Perhaps in the future I’ll take you up on your generous offer, and I’ll extend the same to you.

      Yeah of course, anytime you want.

      I feel you on being a perfectionist. I literally have to have my wife check my post for common spelling errors, not because I am incapable of spotting them, I just get so caught up in conveying my point that I miss the easy stuff.

    I would love to tell my story, here but it is really heavy. That’s the bad news. The good news is I survived and am actually happy now!!!

    Some feedback – I often feel you write too much for the time I have to devote to email, but then I read every post – ambivalent. Me, I post 3xmonth.

    You can get good exposure by commenting on other blogs. That way you reach all the readers of the other person’s blogs. Also, if you read the WordPress articles on tagging and optimizing your position on search engines, you should be able to broaden the number of people you reach.

      I personally don’t mind heavy posts, but that’s your choice for sure.

      I will be the first to admit I probably post too much. I am gonna try and cut back, especially if I take this on.

      I have a hard time meeting myself in the middle, part of my OCD, but so have myself a 3 post limit, but I have to post everyday, or I’ll likely just stop posting. If it’s not a part of my daily ritual it goes away.

      Working on that, and I think I’ll Change it to one past a day, that’s something I could do.

      I’ve actually been pretty happy with my exposure, I’ve reached out to some other people and have been lucky enough to do some guest blogs.

      I just figured I’d pass on the love.

      Thanks for the support, I appreciate it.

        How about writing as much as you do now, since it works for you, stockpililng some, then combining them?

        Like I love your haiku. It would be great to have 2 or 3 on the same subject. Actually, it would be great if you took all you have written and make them into an ebook. You could ask for contributions, too.

        I love throwing out ideas, especially to other people – I have so many ideas and so little time.

        PS Passing on the love increases the amount of healing in this sad world of ours. Activism at its best!

        That’s actually a really simple yet effective way of posting, kind of surprised I didn’t think of that.

        Definitely going to start combining haikus.

        I am actually working on a couple of Ebooks, but that’s a ways off.

        It’s so funny, I focus so much on the writing, that I forget to focus on how I post my work.

        You definitely gave me some ideas about how I am going to restructure my posting.

        Thanks again.

        One is a book of poetry that is going to go through the path of recovery from abuse and trauma.

        Starting in the darkest depths and ending in a place of healing.

        The other ebook is a novella.

        I am trying to get the flow right, right now it’s just raw.
