My friend Stacia over at Dried On Milk has encouraged me to participate in the Blogger Idol contest.

Fortunately, Paula Abdul won’t be a judge, so that won’t be a concern.  (I’m not confident she was fully aware she was a judge on American Idol…or that she was on TV…or that she was supposed to speak English coherently).

In order to be considered for the first round of Blogger Idol, I have to submit a post that best represents me and my blog.

Apparently just submitting a sentence that says “I spill things, I’m covered in dog hair and I can’t function without embarrassing myself” isn’t enough to accurately describe me and my blog.

I contend otherwise.

This is where you come in.  I need you to tell me what are your favorite posts of mine over the years that you think best describes my blog and who I am as a person/writer.

Hopefully it will be a post that made you laugh, which is kind of the point of this Blogger Idol contest.

If you choose a sappy post for me to submit, I will kindly remind you that post isn’t from me and you’re obviously reading someone else’s blog.

It’s okay.  I probably wouldn’t read my blog either.

Please give me your thoughts on which posts you think represent me best and are the funniest.

To get you started, here are a few I’ve selected as options.

Yes, I’m holding  your hand through this, but that’s because you probably like holding hands.  I hate it, so let this be yet another treat I’m giving you.

Let me know what you guys think.  Put your suggestion in the comments. Email me.  Text me.  Tweet me.  Facebook or Google+ me.  Whichever way works.

Just don’t assault me.  I get stabby when people try to assault me.

The posts I selected above are just a few of my suggestions, but you are free to suggest whichever posts you want.

Just remember they have to be a post I actually wrote, so suggesting posts from The Bloggess isn’t really going to get me anywhere.

Thanks!  You guys are such lambs!

Love Lisa
