Hey there, Awesome Blog Readers!
Confession: I was going to title this post Ho-Ly F*ck but my parents visit here sometimes, and I’ve been trying to keep the “good girl” image up since I went through the terrible twos because… well, that was enough drama for EVERYONE involved.
But why, Mona? What happened that you would want to write something that begins with Ho-Ly F*ck???
OMG, I AM SO GLAD YOU ASKED BECAUSE I HAVE NEWS!
It all started yesterday morning when I was quietly having coffee in bed and checking email on my phone. Most of my emails were boxing week promotions for things like Scientology and Viagra (I’m not sure how I get on their mailing lists, but please stop) – except one email stood out.
The subject line was:
Moxie-Dude featured in Feedspot Top 100 Humor Blogs
The email was from the Founder of Feedspot and here’s a screenshot of what he had to say and why the words Ho-Ly F*ck kept tumbling out of my mouth.
I didn’t say Ho-Ly F*ck out loud too many times. Maybe 100 times in the span of 25 minutes because I had to re-read the email 100 times to make sure that ONE, I didn’t wake up drunk and TWO, how can you NOT SAY Ho-Ly F*ck after reading this?
I am so honored to be listed amongst bloggers like The Bloggess (Jenny Lawson) and Awesomely Luvvie.
Seriously. Honored. Also, speechless. Okay, maybe not speechless.
And that’s not all. After reviewing the list about 100 times (yes, that’s the number of the day), I noticed ‘Also in Single Mom Blogs’ in the description. I clicked on the link and there I was again on ANOTHER TOP 100 BLOG LIST.
Can I say Ho-Ly F*ck now?
Oh! And if you think I’m drunk, I can assure you I’m not.
Here are the links:
Mona Andrei is an award-winning humor blogger, columnist, and author. In her most recent book, SUPERWOMAN: A Funny and Reflective Look at Single Motherhood, she shares her challenges and triumphs as a single mother as well as stories from other single mothers.
Mona is also the host of the Single Moms with Moxie podcast.
When Mona isn’t writing or interviewing other single mothers, you can probably find her dancing. As a member of a competitive hip hop team, she likes to think that she’ll stay young and cool forever. She may be delusional.
Congratulations! I can still remember the 7th grade English class where our teacher assigned us to write a humorous essay. We quickly found out how difficult it is to write humor.. So be proud and say all the holy you-know-whats you want – you earned them!
