crazy girl rambling...

I have the opportunity to either do a Q&A with a guest author or she can guest blog. Every time I try to think about which I want to do or try to come up with half way intelligent ideas for the questions or ideas for her to post about, I start to panic and my mind goes utterly & completely blank. Is this normal? Am I just paranoid? What is happening to me?!? I mean, come on, I'm definitely new to the whole blogging experience (not even 6 months yet!) and I'm already considering hosting a guest? I've lost my mind, that's the only answer there is for it. I have completely & utterly (oh crap, I've already used that phrase, oh well, it's accurate so I'm going to keep it) lost my mind. That's all I needed to say. I'm going to the back office and curl up in the corner till this passes. See ya later.

Ooohhh Susie! No worries, you'll be okay! To get your mind working in the right direction, I'm sure you can find many, many questions or ideas to use by looking through other blogs or doing some research on the internet. Once you get on the right wavelength I am sure you will come up with plenty of great questions on your own.
I am inspired and amazed by all you have done so far with your blog - so many reviews andd giveaways and now you are going to host an author. It's great. It is a lot to do in a short time but I guess you have to start somewhere and the more you do the easier it will get.
I only started my blog a few weeks ago and I'm taking it really slow. This entire blogging world is new to me. There are so many things I don't even know how to do such as if I wanted to reference your blog name in a post on my blog, I don't know how to make the name of your blog a link. I only know how to post your blog address. The same with labels or tags for things like "Sunday Salon" or "Monday Mailbox". I have no idea how to post them in my blog. Somehow I'll learn.
The bloggers in this community are wonderful and supportive. I'm sure any of them would be happy to help you.
I'd be more than happy to help you come up with questions or posting ideas for yourt author. Just let me know!

Hang in there Susie! You're doing great!

This is funny because I just sent off my FIRST set of interview questions to an author today. I am totally freaked..I don't know if she will like them or not!!

Trust me, there are tons of stuff I don't know. You are not alone!!! :)
