What TIME is it?!

There'll be no sleep for me tonight, and I have a deadline for tomorrow, if The Examiner gets my bio straight.

So this is really a PSA. Kind of begging, actually. I get paid based on the hits my site will receive daily. I'm hoping all you guys pitch in and visit OH I DUNNO 358725782953 TIMES A DAY? at least twice a day. You don't have to read it; just reload. lol :> Refer your friends to it and get a small referral fee (friend's only entries don't count). Mine is a national column, which is rare for them. Most of their columnists are local. So I could use all the page hits you guys can throw at me. And if you're in a stepfamily, you'll benefit from it. Otherwise, please visit just to give me hits necessary to up the page hit count.

I received another offer (which I've already journaled) for /this/ thing. Again, page hits count so the more you guys wander over here, the better off I'll be when I accept their offer. We ALL know I need the money right now so your cooperation is mucho appreciated.

Am I begging? I seem to be doing a lot of that lately. Sorta. Kinda. Okay, not really. Begging is harsh...being needy, however...*whistles innocently*

Right now, it's 2:30. I've at least done four loads of laundry and finished my bedroom. I've GOT to get some sleep in preparation for tomorrow, but my brain is too busy doing backflips inside my skull and will give me no peace.

I need some peace, quick like. Right now, I'm so confused even putting all your opinions together on my situation probably wouldn't make sense or help if ya knew what was going on. God knows I've thought it down to a bloody stump.

Being even slightly social, I've decided, is an affliction, and one I need to cure myself of and quick. For those who're tired of hearing this vague inference to "THAT FREAKIN' SITUATION THING WHICH I'LL NEVER EVER TALK ABOUT EVER", I'll be posting a friend's only entry one day this week explaining the craziness of it all. Since I've received a couple of e-mails regarding "what's going on" I should at least explain it to those of you who read AND journal what's happening just to stay true to my mission in here, non?

So that's that. I'm too tired to write any more, and doubt this makes any sense.

Any stepparents/stepkids out there? Just curious. :>

...wha'ts the link we have to refresh every 30 seconds? :P
Feb. 16th, 2009 10:56 am (UTC)
When we get my page set up /correctly/ (they're making changes at my request), I'm going to put that sucker on every page I have. lol
Feb. 16th, 2009 11:19 am (UTC)
Good! I was afraid I had missed the link, so I'll be glad when you post it.
Feb. 16th, 2009 11:36 am (UTC)
Don't feel at all obligated to read it! Seriously. They don't give us a large enough word count for it to be "meaty". But the hits will ensure I get paid what I'm estimating. Naturally, since I'll be national as opposed to most who are local, I'll get more attention globally which will immediately up my page count, just like it did when I hosted a stepfamily network :) But you guys will help out a lot!! :D Feel free to come back twice a day and hit it again. Hahhahah :D

Mine is one of the very few which will be national; meaning, I'll get hits from all over the world without having to hope someone Googles my city like the ones underneath the 'national' writers, thank God.

Do you have a link to the site?


How goes the deadline?
Feb. 16th, 2009 10:57 am (UTC)
They still have to make a couple of changes (errors of theirs; not mine) and as soon as they do BOOOOOM, I'll hit it up in every entry I make. lol :) :D
Feb. 16th, 2009 10:57 am (UTC)
Link for the site we are reloading?

Whatever is going on, I do hope the light side of the tunnel appears for you soon.
Feb. 16th, 2009 10:58 am (UTC)
We're setting my page up now, and I've asked them to make a couple of changes to it. As soon as it goes up, I'm going to alert you guys.

You're a stepparent, aren't you? Or is your hubby?
Feb. 16th, 2009 11:52 am (UTC)
Hubby is a stepparent
Feb. 16th, 2009 11:53 am (UTC)
Ah ha!

Well, if you ever have suggestions on topics, mail me at tbastedo@aol.com (or send me a private message here) and I'll be glad to address it. I know when kids become teens, it gets pretty tense with most stepparenting couples, since teens are evil. lolol :)
Feb. 16th, 2009 11:22 am (UTC)
LOL - just to be trendy, I'll ask for the link too, even though, by your responses to the other THREE people, I know you're going to post it later...
Feb. 16th, 2009 11:31 am (UTC)
LOL. They messed up my bio (said I was stepmom to two), and also I feel the title of the page should change from Blending Families to Stepparenting or Stepfamilies. Still hashing it out with a few people. I was told by one of the editors last night that I should be flattered that they're letting me start off at the national level (unlike the hundreds who write for their hometowns). Uh...I don't feel flattered but rather frenetic right now.
Feb. 16th, 2009 10:09 pm (UTC)
I know you're asking who *is/has* a stepparent or stepkid, but an idea for another article later on could be about who is *willing to be* a stepparent/kid. Whaddya think?

Good luck on the deadline and correction stuff! :-)
Feb. 17th, 2009 01:29 am (UTC)
That's not a relevant question (unfortunately for some stepkids and their stepparents). I hosted a national forum for seven years, and was simply curious about those on my friend's list.
Feb. 17th, 2009 06:13 pm (UTC)
Step parent and kid. What sites should I be aiming at?
Feb. 17th, 2009 06:16 pm (UTC)
I've requested changes be made before I start, and they're working on that now. I'll be the Step Parenting Examiner, it'll be a national column and should show SOMEthing by next week if we get all this straightened out. :>
Feb. 17th, 2009 06:17 pm (UTC)
You could help me in this by having ideas on what YOU could've done/have done, have had done as a stepparent or stepchild. You don't mind me occasionally asking do ya?
Feb. 17th, 2009 06:45 pm (UTC)
Not at all.
Feb. 17th, 2009 06:59 pm (UTC)
Never hesitate to throw suggestions at me. I know what the parents (and kids) wanted a couple of years' ago, but I need to get back into the swing of it. :>

Creeping Through The Cellar Door
Stepparenting Column

Latest Month

February 2019


Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
