Connie Roberts-Huth So I Want to Run for President… by Connie Roberts- Huth 

It’s crazy, and I’ll admit more of a social experiment than anything else. I want to see if using social media and the interwebz (and a kickstarter, cos I have to pay in $5k to even be considered) can get a real American citizen  (Granted, if I win, I’ll definitely take my family to the White House.)

I know my chances are slim.

  • I have zero political experience.
  • I’m a woman.
  • And a minority.
  • And sexually unrepressed.
  • Not classically beautiful. (It makes a big difference, sadly)
  • Divorced, married twice.
  • Not Christian.
  • Opinionated.

I’m sure there’s more, but here are the reason I could win:

  • I have zero political experience.
  • I’m a woman.
  • And a minority.
  • And sexually unrepressed.
  • Not classically beautiful.
  • Divorced, married twice.
  • Not Christian.
  • Opinionated.

*LOL* See what I did there? No, there’s more:

  • I was born, raised, served, and married into the military.
  • I currently work to support the military.
  • I’m smart.
  • I claim no political party.
  • I owe no one, so my opinions can’t be swayed.

No, seriously, I think the people in this country are ready for a big change, and I’m definitely a big change. as I iron pieces out of my platform, I’ll post them here. I want your questions, bc I love new perspectives and new data to process. I do not claim to be able to solve all the problems, not by a long shot, but I know that listening to people who are more educated on the wide array of topics will help me a lot.

Wish me luck!

You Know You’re Hardcore if . . .

English: A photo of a cup of coffee. Esperanto...

OMG this sounds like me. Half the time I am sipping cold coffee after making sure I blog a post, do my daily stumbles and Diggs on friends posts, check and update links, make sure my stuff looks pretty, write another blog post, deal with an international conference call about a zombie tv show that I am apparently writing a press release for (scratching head.. apparently I need more coffee .. oh wait I need to make dinner) Oh I dreamnt about a new Meme idea (even though the use of meme in relation of blogging is not the correct use of the word and still drives me nuts..) OH and spending an hour JUST WRITING.. wait.. oh I Think I forgot is this shirt clean???

You know you’re hardcore if . . .

You write a new post for your blog first thing in the morning and you haven’t even had your coffee yet.

You spend your time blogging about something that you no longer have time to do because you’re too busy blogging.

Your blog-writing style starts showing up in say, reports you write at work.

You sit and chuckle over and over again at some funny phrase you wrote in your blog that only you understand to be funny and no one else will probably ever even break a slight grin about . . . and that’s okay with you.

English: Walk The Line was a Syracuse, NY base...

You can masterfully turn any conversation into an opportunity to tell the other person all about your blog and give them the address, then you marvel at how easy this is to do compared to anything that would actually earn you money.

You’re always dreaming up new posts for your blog–no, really dreaming them in your sleep.

Your best advice to anyone you talk to is, “Start a blog!”

What’s your definition of hardcore?
