I’m famous! Or is it infamous?

November 15, 2008

I’ve got to give a shout out to Mary Hanson of Blogs of Photogs who recently featured myself and my wife on her web blog.  Now, her blog is actually a review site of photographers’ blogs, so getting a mention there seemed pretty unlikely.  I mean, you’ve seen the pictures here on my site.  While perhaps humorous, I wouldn’t call them awe-inspiring or even technically adequate from a photography sense.  All that magic was created with a point and shoot camera with a caveman at the controls- see, you really can teach chimps to do the work of humans, if you’re willing to invest the time.

I may just have to use Mary’s words as my first real testimonial.  Here’s a bit of what she had to say:

“…so hilariously funny that if this man does not get a paying job as a writer soon I will lose my faith in the literary community. Truly, it is actual laugh out loud funny– pee your pants funny. It is even “I get excited when I see an email from feedburner about it funny.”’

To say I am surprised is an understatement.  My site was originally designed to capture the wacky stuff my boys engage in on a daily basis and then filter it to the extended family so they can remain in touch.  To have someone outside of the Groah/Kocsis clan follow my boys’ adventures, and actually find some enjoyment while doing so, is a huge compliment.  I hope that others will follow along as well.  Because if my strange, funny, sometimes even painful parenting experiences bring a smile to your face and somehow lighten your day then it makes it that much more worthwhile to continue.

Mary, thanks again for the super-cool shout out and sorry about your pants. Maybe you should cut back on the water intake before reading my posts?

I will definitely potty before reading your posts in the future Shane. And yes, as a mommy of three, I no longer pee, or use the bathroom, I “potty”… pathetic but true. Glad you enjoyed the shout out, bet you have a lot of readers subscribing now.

I started reading your blog because of the review on blogs of photogs (i’m a photog) and I love it. I have a 5yr old boy myself and it’s nice to know my child isn’t the only one doing crazy weird stuff…haah…keep up the great writing!

Shane, you are on your way now….

Jealous of you. I am not even a contender for Mary’s blog.
