We Interrupt this Program...

We interrupt this program to bring you a series of random questions.

1) Have any of you heard of a website called The Imperfect Parent? If so, do you like it?


2) Anyone been contacted by them recently to blog for their site? If so, are you considering it?


3) Do you think that 1:30pm on a Monday is too early to start drinking? Uh. Wait. Don't answer that.


4) Anyone care to toast the end of summer with me?

All I know is Kvetch had a piece published online here:

http://www.imperfectparent.com/articles/articles266_1.php

I couldn't really find any About section just a lot of links to different subjects.

This coud be very, very exciting.

(Do you have any cheese and ers to go with the bubbly? I'm feeling a little peckish.)

3:36 PM  
Blogger Mary-LUE said...

Does that say cheese and ers? *%#*$ Cyber Sitter. Let's try that again: Do you have any cheese and not-a-form-of-a-white-powdered-illegal-drug-ers but some wheat-based, thin, flattish substenance to go with the bubbly?

Yes, I was invited to blog for them, but wasn't sure how they found me.

*oh, how rude of me, excuse me while I pour you each a drink*

So, anyway, I hadn't heard of their site before today, but it looks like a nice parenting resource from what I've seen so far.

Anonymous Petite Mommy said...

I have heard about it and they do a lot of parenting essays,articles, etc. I'm sure it's a legit site. I think a few bloggers have written for them. Do you get paid?

4:23 PM  
Blogger Pattie said...

I haven't heard of them...
I haven't been contacted by them...
My motto? It is 5:00 somewhere...
Yes, I would love to join you...*clink* Cheers!

Blogger Mrs. Chicky said...

Nope, haven't heard of them, but if they're legit I say drink up. Toast to the end of summer and a new writing gig!

Just save some for me.

I have seen them, and they are a good e-zine. No, I've never been contacted by them to blog for them, but hey, that's cool that they found you! Awesome!

I have never heard of them either. But check it out, if you like the vibe go for it..

Blogger Chantal said...

I think it was a year and a half ago or so that I got an email from them asking to check out their site and join. Though I'm not sure I was asked to blog. I would remember that. I joined the site and cause it seemed to kick ass! I say go go go!

6:34 PM  
Blogger Tracie said...

I've never heard of it, but it looks interesting--I'm going to browse around there more.

I'll toast to the soon coming of fall!

I had an essay on IP just last week (http://imperfectparent.com/articles/articles266_1.php) and I've submitted more.

I think it's a great site - easy to read and navigate.

I would love a blogging gig there -- way to go!!!

Blogger sunshinedaily4me_wuz_here said...

hadn't heard of it - but if they asked you to submit something - I'd go for it!

Blogger Lisa said...

If you have children, and one like mine, I don't think 1:30 is too early to start drinking. In fact, sometimes, I think it might be too late! heehee.

I checked out that site you linked. Pretty cool. Love that they have a MILF news section. heehee

7:23 PM  
Blogger crazymumma said...

I don't hink I could stay awake after a drink that early...but I will make it up to you tonight. Promise.

Blogger dcrmom said...

Well, it's 5:00 somewhere is my motto. ;-)

I'm FREAKING OUT though about the Imperfect Parent site! I knew the girl who owns that site. I remember when she was starting it. We lost tough, but I just emailed her. Hilarious!!!!!

8:03 PM  
Blogger dcrmom said...

Um, make that, "we lost TOUCH". Sorry, that cosmopolitan (or two - it is 11pm here, btw, not that I have to explain my 2 cosmos, haha!) is affecting my typing fingers. *grin*

8:06 PM  
Blogger Mommy off the Record said...

Dcrmom: That's neat that you know the founder of the site. I'd ask you to pass me a cosmo, but I don't want to mix my drinks. :)

Mmm - pass the bottle ... and a straw

Oh. I love your blog already LOLOOOL!

I think drinking on a Monday is totally appropriate. And well-deserved.

Tangent: that picture reminded me of a former coworker who would yell out, "It's beer-thirty!" every Friday.

Blogger Michele said...

My kids have been back in school for a few weeks, but I'm ALWAYS down for a toast.

6:59 AM  
Blogger Zephra said...

No but you peaked my curiosity.

7:06 AM  
Blogger Andrea said...

I've only heard of them through Kvetch. And Kristen at Motherhood Uncensored put a link up about them looking for bloggers. Sounds awesome! I only wish I had your luck. Sigh. Maybe someday.

Cheers! Tipping my Coke (it's Tuesday morning back at work, so no drinking, though I wish it had some Captain Morgan in it) to you!

7:16 AM  
Blogger Merry Mama said...

Sure, sure and sure. Actually, I'd love to submit, but I'm having a crises of worthiness. Let me know what you think...

PS-I've been by several times and I can't get over how cute this pad is...

10:42 AM  
Blogger carrie said...

I looked at that site and it seems interesting. But, does that mean that you wouldn't have your lovely blog here? Because I heard that you can't use blog entries...

But, whatever you decide, good luck, and Cheers (by now, it is past noon everywhere!).

Carrie

Blogger virtualsprite said...

Just checked the site now. Looks pretty cool. I'd write for them if they asked.

And since it's already Tuesday now (and since I had to write for work I couldn't check blogs until now...) I'll raise a drink in honor of your virtual hangovers.

(Hope no one had one, though... they're nasty.)

1:11 PM  
Blogger Gingers Mom said...

Wait...let me run and get a glass! Ah hell, who needs a glass when you can chug it right out of the bottle?

2:17 PM  
Blogger Amber said...

I haven't heard of them! The only folks I have contacting me are those who type "moldy boobs" into Google (I AM the #1 link...)

4:18 PM  
Blogger Mommy off the Record said...

Petite Mommy: no pay :( but maybe a stipend in the future.

Kvetch: awesome that they published you. you should contact them about doing the blogging thing. Heck, they obviously already love your writing!


Lisa: yes, any site with a MILF section is OK in my book too!

Amber: you are funny, you DotMama you! I have a feeling there are a few more people than moldy boob seekers who have sought you out (even though I happen to have found you when searching for moldy boobs, lol).

Merry Mama: thanks for visiting! I think you should definitely submit something. Go for it!

Carrie: I'd be able to keep my blog, but it would mean that I wouldn't have as much time to post on this blog, which is the thing that is holding me back a bit. I love writing on this blog so it would be hard to split my time.

Kristin: you lush, you! Now hand me the bottle!

5:30 PM  
Anonymous emma said...

I'd never heard of the site but think I will submit something. Now I'll lie down with a nice Gin and Tonic and toast a drink with you.

5:55 PM  
Blogger Jodi said...

UM YEAH, it's like NEVER too early to start drinking. :) :) HEHEHEHHE.

Let me know more about that site. I canNOT get addicted to one more site unless it's really good.So let me know, would ya?

6:56 PM  
Blogger Catherine said...

I wish I could join you in your celebration of summer ending, but I'm totally bummed about it. Then again, I live in a place where summers never get above 85 at its hottest. And winter lasts 3/4 of the year. Ah, hell, I'll drink with you anyway.

Blogger lildb said...

cheers, sweetie darling! this is the beginning of something fabulous, I feel.

p.s. champagne is always an acceptable beverage. always.

Blogger sunshine scribe said...

Look at you with fans lovin your writing so much they want you to blog for them. I say go for it.

And pass me another drink :)

4:21 AM  
Blogger Brony said...

1) No (but I'll check them out)
2) No (I take it they contacted you)
3) Is it every to early?
4) Yes, although I don't actually drink, it interferes with my meds could I get a mocktail?

I know Prescott, who runs Imperfect parent. Great guy. Nice to see they're recruiting more people to work for them.
