There is a place on the internet where people like me can go and be accepted without reserve, despite my nutty behaviour. No, I'm not referring to the local mental health clinic's forum (though they are awesome. Wibble.). The place I'm referring to is An Army Of Ermas, run by the fearless nutcase, Stacey Graham.
Stacey has been working tirelessly since the Ermas' inception to keep the place running smoothly. Not only does she maintain the site, she also proofreads every article, finds suitable images, answers any question the contributors may have, AND puts up with our lunacy without so much as a restraining order. Uh, except that one time, but that was unrelated.
Anyway. As thanks, the darling Beth Bartlett arranged An Army of Ermas Day. A good chunk of the contributors to the site are posting about the site and Stacey, and we're all doing it today, unbeknownst to Ms. Graham. Be sure to check out the links at the bottom of this post to see the other posts!
I first started with the Ermas after a call was put out for a couple of guest spots on the site for Christmas. I decided to give it a shot, having missed the previous call through laziness, and penned this post. Shortly after I submitted it, Stacey asked me to come aboard.
I said yes, in case you weren't paying attention.
I've since posted four or five articles, and will be posting many more, and Stacey has been nothing short of awesome the whole durned time. She's fast, hard-workin', and one of the funniest women I've ever met (and I've met many). I couldn't ask for a better boss and I love that I get to call her a friend, too.
Right, enough of that sappiness. Here're the other Ermas' links I mentioned:
Terri Lynn Coop
Sara Spock Carlson
(Will add more as they appear)
Aaaaand here's the Ermas link again. At least go and look at this one. ;-)
