For Clarifications Sake...

I know that I was a little vague the other day when I said that I need guest posters... I have had several people ask me if I am pregnant. That is NOT the case. I can assure you!!  I am having my tonsils out and other fun stuff that means while I am on a liquid diet for a few days, I can not have any beer. Any questions? No? Good.

I am looking at my FB fans for HBG... looks like most of my fans are women... that is pretty cool. I never thought that when I started writing about beer I would start caring so deeply about my audience... even when I don't hear from my audience often. I want to know who reads my blog, how I am affecting their day, and if my writing has influenced any choices that have been made. Do you sneak in a quick read on your lunch time? Do you save all your blog posts to read on Sunday mornings? That is what I spend my time thinking about, when I am not thinking about what beer to write about. I also think a lot about how I can make my page better, how I can be a better tweeter (is that right) and how am I ever going to find time to put HBG on Google Plus.

Well I was reading a post from Women Enjoying Beer about how to get your beer groove on, see what Ginger wrote here. I thought it was a great post, and perfectly timed. As I ask my family and friends for help with my blog in preparation for my upcoming lame surgery, I realize that I have hit a bit of a creative slump. Maybe it's the weather, maybe it's me being sick for like a month straight... whatever it is I want it to be over with. While I can't just give out free beer to everyone who reads my blog, and I can't throw an un-birthday party for you... I can think of things that make me enthusiastic about writing and being creative.

In the interest of not posting two posts back to back that don't have pictures, here is an obligatory picture:

That feels better!
