The day after a U.S. holiday is always low key, and that’s why we’re going to bang it up today and clang the pots and pans in honor of the 24 #RockHot guest authors I cajoled, nudged, begged, and just plain old invited to write for the longest-running series a blog has ever had (and longest sentence, too!).
What began as an experiment with zero nada expectation has become a weekly post on Fridays about happy. Thank you to each of you below who willingly participated and accepted my invite to be part of this blogger’s happiness project out of the blue.
Along the way, two goals were created:
1. That Jayme Soulati would never need to write (because nothing was in queue) unless she wanted to (Secret: I have a post I wrote after something significant occurred and I will post it when there’s a need.)
2. To get through one entire year of guest authors every Friday until mid-January (Jan. 17, 2013 launched the series), and so far so good!
Without further ado, let’s get on with the show! I thank, am grateful, adore, appreciate, and have so much respect for each of the people in this community below who so graciously shared a piece of their happy. XO to each and all.
24 #RockHot Happy Guest Authors
Each of these titles begins with “The Happy Friday Series:”

How To Write For The Happy Friday Series
Yes, it is no small feat to find a different guest author weekly for this series. That’s why you ought to consider it. I’m told it’s a highly therapeutic happening. When you think about what makes you truly happy or what your interpretation of happiness is and could be, writing about it becomes an awakening.
Happiness is introspective and few of us desire to take that kind of hard look inside; when you do you share among friends and it feels so very good.
If you care to write for this series, and I implore you to consider it, here’s how:
1. Send me a note, tweet, post of intent everywhere (even in the comment section below).
2. Write your post and give yourself two weeks to get it done.
3. Deliver it with an author bio, photo for the story, links to your blog, etc.
4. If the headline or content within needs tweaking, I reserve the right to edit. If the content really needs tweaking, I’ll send back to you for review and approval.
5. Share the heck out of it when it appears here! Easy!
