About The Blog
Here’s what readers like you are saying about Alaina Mabaso’s Blog:
“Your writing is refreshing, honest and to the point.”
“The sinister part of you is showing.”
“This is an excellently written post. Thank you for presenting this cogently.”
“That alone shows the ignorance and lack of insight into the soul of the Church you have.”
“This is brilliant. You are my new favorite writer.”
“I’d rather hear a screaming kid than a complaining adult (which includes bloggers). Crap post.”
“Wow. Very well written. Nicely argued. Timely.”
“You can literally pick out the SIN within your writing – Shifting focus, Ignoring facts and Name calling. That is the SIN I refer to.”
“Thank you for sharing an honest, non-aggressive, and educated post.”
“*gag* *swallow* Rubbish!”
Most of these essays are humorous, but the most important thing for you to know up front is that if each post attracts nothing but a string of “LOL!!!” or “Thats so funny!” comments…well, who cares. It’s not that I don’t like hearing that a post is enjoyable, but the most gratifying thing to me is when you respond with your own experience or perspective, whether or not you agree with me. The only tagline here is “Fiction Need Not Apply.” As a professional writer, I’m on the hook for a lot of editors’ ideas. This blog is whatever I’ve got that’s left over at the end of the day, so enter at your own risk.
Some of my friends labor on plays and novels. I admire them, but my blog is about things that actually happened (or, in some cases, my opinions, but I think these qualify as truth). The world is so strange and funny that you don’t need to make anything up.
If you look over my blog, you’ll discover my feelings for centipedes, over-sized strollers, casinos, pico de gallo, and New Jersey gas stations. I will tell you about the time a puma almost got me (maybe), and what I think about kids on YouTube. We’ll talk about Crocs, poor customer service, questionable hair-dos and the sub-par education at Hogwarts. We’ll discuss politics and proper child-rearing. And much, much more.
Floating quietly on the internet, this blog doesn’t earn me a cent. But it is about the fun things.
