There is a certain pressure that comes from trying to be funny on the internet.  First off, it’s pretty faux pas to even mention that you may be funny.  Frankly, I don’t think I’m funny, but I am glad that some other people occasionally tolerate me and my blog.  Then, there is the trying to convey sarcasm in my writings.  We can assume that I am always being sarcastic without making an ass of u or me.  Except when I’m not.  If I ever feel tempted to be serious this can be extra challenging.  I don’t need “Sarcasm font,”  I need “Sincere font.”  Example:  I love my kids.  How did you read that?  See?  I need sincere font.  My biggest challenge is writing a bio statement.  I want to be one of those quaint or beautiful souls who says stuff like “lover of coffee, of Jesus, and of sharpies.”  Mine would say “I love Jesus and I won ‘most likely to tell a fart joke to a visiting dignitary’ in high school.”  It just doesn’t gel the same right??  And finally, it hurts to admit this, but I used to think that I was a special snowflake.  Turns out there are a ton of other moms doing what I do on the daily.  (That is to say, blogging) But that’s okay.  I’ve found my people.

  1. I’m afraid once you are declared “funny,” there’s terrible pressure to always be funny. Is that just my imagination?

    I was voted “Wittiest” in high school, but no one believes me so there may have been some ballot box stuffing.
