Possible Once In A Lifetime Opportunity

Okay people.

I need you.

Desperately.

I have spent countless days going through four years worth of my own blog posts.  And while it’s been an interesting stroll down memory lane, I am trying to narrow it down to my ‘Top Ten’ Favorites. Why? Because I have been presented with an opportunity that’s too good to pass up. I can’t really discuss what, why, or how this opportunity landed in my lap because I am afraid of ‘Jinxing’ it. So let’s just say a friend of a friend, who knows somebody who knows somebody, might be able to open some doors for me. And they’ve requested a few writing samples. Specifically blog posts.

However, this is proving to be much more difficult than I expected. And here’s why. I have not been given any parameters. In fact, I have no idea what market I am supposed to be targeting. Basically? I’m going into this blindly.  But this is where YOU [my beloved readers] can HELP me.

Please?

I figured since you’ve been such a fantastic ‘audience’ I might as well call upon my family, friends, new, and long-time loyal readers to ‘VOTE’ on your favorite Momma Mia Mea Culpa blog-posts.

Yes?

[ I know. I am asking a lot of you.  I am practically giving ya’ll homework. ]

But, all you have to do is follow these three steps:

1.     Click on the titles below.

2.     Read the posts.

3.     Vote for your favorite one.

* Once you’ve made your decision, please cast your vote in the comments section of this post. That way I will be able to tally the votes easily.

Simple.

Right?

And the candidates are:

Clearly, I Have Nothing To Wear

An Open Letter To The New Jersey Turnpike

My Daddy And The Spider

Public Service Announcement – TMI Style

My Grandmother Manga, A True Love Story

Scrubs: The Totally Super Awesome Television Show

The Black Out

How I Became A Reluctant Customer Service Representative

Friendships – When Losing One Hurts Like Hell

[I am not seriously expecting all of you to read all of those blog posts. But, can ya’ll at least TRY and read two of them before casting a vote?]

Oh yeah, one more thing. If there is a particular blog post you remember reading and enjoyed that is NOT on the list above? Please feel free to speak up and mention it in the comments.

Thank you all – in advance, and so very much – from the bottom of my heart!

    Meleah, I read them all, and they’re all great. But my favorites are My Daddy and the Spider and Friendships – When Losing One Hurts Like Hell. One’s funny, and one’s not, but they’re both honest, one of your hallmarks. I can’t decide which one I like more.

    Speaking as professional, they both need some editing, by the way. I’d be glad to help if you’re not in a hurry and you’re not too sensitive.

    I hope this opportunity turns into something big. Huge! Good luck….

  • Clearly, I have nothing to wear. Ditto for most other women in the world…so long as the emperor keeps his new clothes, we’ll be fine. Good luck M!

  • I would LOVE to have your help. Seriously!
    Wow. Thanks, Mike.

  • I would LOVE to have your help. Seriously!
    Wow. Thanks, Mike.

    Wow. Thanks, Mike.

  • HA! Thank you.

  • HA! Thank you.

  • HA! Thank you.

  • I like the Black Out.

    And the Spider story. Damn that spider story and its ability to shine above and beyond the rest of them. I wanted to be different, but that’s damn funny story.

  • Why thank you Cardio Girl!

  • Thank you Robert! I know how much effort you put into your decision.

    Congratulations and best of luck with your ‘possibility’. I’m sure you’ll make a great impression. Picking a favorite from any of your writings is tough. My Daddy and the Spider and My Grandmother Manga are at the top of my list, but I enjoy every one of your posts, regardless of the subject. You have an openness and honesty in sharing your personal life that very few could pull off.

    I like:

    The New Jersey Shore-Clever, well written, different.

    The Black Out-humorous, quirky

    I thought the Augmentation Nation might be too racy for the wrong audience. But for the right one it would be perfect. It’s too bad you don’t know your target audience.

  • One of the Guys

    ps. Good luck, and keep us posted!

  • Oh Jim! Thank you for saying that.
    I sent my submissions out and now I’m totally nervous freaking out, waiting
    to hear back. Oh, and I think I suck as a writer!

  • Will do!

  • I wish I knew my audience too!
    Thank you for your votes, and for taking the time to read these entries!

  • Oscar

    Grandma – and the Customer service rep. I remember those! And most of the others. clicked on each to review and refresh!

    The TMI may scare ’em!

  • Gracias Oscar!

  • Jay

    I think I will vote for My Daddy and the Spider. I like stories about your Daddy and you told it well!

  • Thank you, Jay!
    Yanno, you’re killing me with those Macro Mondays right?
    I just want to guess ONE of them correctly!

  • So hard to choose…. so hard…. So I’m going to go with “My Daddy and the Spider” because I just love your Daddy stories. Good luck!

  • You rock Terri, thanks for your vote!

  • Roshan

    Your blogs posts are like women….each one is hot in ‘her’ own way. There’s something special in each of them. But if I were to choose then I would have to vote for “Breast Implants, Augmentation Nation” …..just because you wrote about my fav general subject!

    Honestly I love anything that you write so it’s kinda hard to pick just one. But let’s go with that one.

  • Ahahahahah. Okay!
    Thanks, Roshan.

  • Ahahahahah. Okay!

  • Awake In Rochester

    Unfortunately I still don’t have a computer & have limited time on the library computer so can’t read them all. I remember MY Dad & The Spider and really liked it.

    Good Luck! Let us know what happens.

    Hi, Meleah – Well, I didn’t read each of the posts you offered but I started each of them to get the general tone, then skimmed to to see where the went. The ones I liked best, i read all the way through. For me, the best … from the pure quality of writing and originality, is “New Jersey Turnpike.” It’s brilliant. But you know I’m a romantic and from the heart, I’d choose “Grandmother Manga.” If you want to add in something “edgy,” I’d vote for “TMI” or “Spider.” Good luck with your opportunity, whatever it is.

  • Thanks AIR!
    xoxoxo

  • I appreciate your advice and votes!
    Thanks, Bud.
    🙂

  • Jules

    I’m a bit late on this one. Did you pick one already?? I like the spider one…

  • Aw. Thahnks Jules!
    🙂

  • I will come back to this one. Since I haven’t been around here as long as some of the others, I want to read them all before I vote. 🙂

  • Oh Mike, you’re a busy man. You don’t have to do that!
