By: Gini Dietrich | January 20, 2011 |

Chris-Tia Tgin Donaldson asks Gini Dietrich on the Arment Dietrich Facebook question of the week, “What are your guidelines for working with guest bloggers? Do you still invite them to write? Do they mainly approach you? Do you require exclusivity for some period of time?”

What we do/require is in my answer below (or click here from your reader).

What are your guidelines?

I have to be intelligent with comments? That's just picky.

What a gorgeous painting, Gini. I love that you have that reminder of your grandpa every day.

And that reminds me - I have to get up off my butt and do my SS guest post because YES, I was asked. :)

I also seriously have to stop thinking about posts and start WRITING them. I kid you not, I had a "guest blogging" post in my head and then I saw this. Aaargh! Though now, I have more great content to add to my post, thanks to you.

I want to be a guest blogger................please oh please ask me............you knocked me out when I found out one of the requirements would be 'commenting intelligently'. I will guest blog someday and it will be prophetic, enlightening and just downright awesome; maybe a spot on Larry King.....what, no more Larry King.......dang.

Nice painting and it's great you can keep the connection and prominently display it; that's pretty cool and that is all I will say about that.

When my folks moved I found a still life done by my late Uncle Ben in their basement which I took (my late grandmother's brother) who was a French Canadian living in Montreal and skied until he was 90. I asked him when he was 88 if he still skied Black Diamonds thinking he would say no, and he looked at me and said 'Of Course! Just not as fast anymore!'

Actually, I couldn't be happier with work and it feels like we are finally gaining some traction. But you just wait, it Mr blog will blow your socks off...............maybe............:).

How hard do you think the turf will be at Soldier Field; can you say ouch? Green Bay just thought they had frozen tundra.
