Part of it, as I said, was not wanting the blog to fall dormant for awhile. Part of it is that I'm lazy and have run out of canned posts so I can't just schedule several of them to be published while I'm busy. (And speaking of lazy... I think it's possible to set up an account and have someone actually log in and really guest-host. Instead, I'm just copying and pasting her stuff and scheduling it to be published while I'm gone. So maybe it's more like booking a talented halftime performer than a guest host, but whatever.)
Another big part of it though is that I want to share with the world the writing talent of another secret spanko. I've had several reach out to me and felt like I've gotten to know a few of them. One of them has even started her own blog! But with the possible exception of my favorite shortstack of SpankCakes, none of them has a way with words quite like Emen. She says she's not ready for her own blog, but I wanted to showcase a bit of her work here.
***update- apparently in trying to get this saved and scheduled, it's popped up on blog rolls all over and when someone clicks on it, it says it doesn't exist- so I'll just go ahead and publish it now! ***
