Before thanking Cherlyn for her guest post I want to wish everyone who celebrates Easter, a wonderful day remembering the day Christ rose from the tomb conquering eternal death.
I find it somewhat sobering that this post should publish during the month of honesty. I don’t know where you found the strength deep down to pull together these words and share them with the masses but I thank you once again for guesting for me in any capacity. You are a lovely woman and I know first hand how blessed I am to know you.
I think I have told you this before but if not; if there was one gift I could give you it would be the ability to see yourself the way others see you.
You are just a wonderful person and I am proud to call you friend. Please realize you cannot let others dictate to you how you feel about yourself. I know you are not religious but this is what God says about you: From Psalm 139:14 it states that “I am fearfully and wonderfully made”.
You are unique. There is none like you and you should celebrate in your oneness. There will never be another Cherlyn. You are special. You are special to me. I love you my friend and I want you to love yourself.
Thank you once again for blogging in my stead. From your poems, your help with memes, challenges and your friendship, Morning Erection would not be the same without you. Could there possibly be a third time for guest posting in our future? Thank you again. In May my guest will be another blogger and friend, Prinsesa Musang. Please come back for her guest post on May 5th.
Y’all ready for this? I dare you to be. Happily I am almost finished all of my responses and all are pre-scheduled. Now I have plenty of time to get ready to create some posts for May. So I guess this is like a mature version of Truth or Dare and the Truth portion starts tomorrow. The Dares commence once all of your 30 responses have finally been posted. The dares are very straight forward and nothing too difficult, nothing vulgar, juvenile or illegal. I guess that means no public nudity (and that’s a good thing believe you, me)! Well for the adventurous and the ones who are kids at heart, I might find one childish dare!
Your choices for dares are below. You only need complete one of the dares but feel free to complete more. You post and description of what dare you did and how it turned out is due five days from the completion date of your thirty questions. Everyone participating will be looking for your dare response. You most certainly do not have to wait until the end of the month to complete your dare(s). You can do it today if you like. You are in charge of your dare! You can use the above graphic for your dare post or not. All dare posts are due no later than five days after your final 30 Day of Blogging Honesty post.
30 Days of Blogging Honesty: The Dare
Write a letter to your 16-year-old self and post it. Detail your journey.

Write a letter to someone you owe an apology to but never gave one. It does not have to be a long letter. Just write the letter (not email), send it and then post it for us to see.
Category: Good Eats
Eat completely healthy for an entire day even if it means eating foods you do not care for. Document all failures or start over another day if you mess up.
For a 24 hour period, for every act of kindness given to you, pay it forward to a stranger one better. For example – if a friend buys you a coffee, buy two strangers a cup of coffee. Detail your journey.
For a 24 hour period you must tell the truth in every situation, every question – all day long. Perhaps the most difficult will be not lying to yourself. Detail your journey.
Spend an hour by yourself totally naked even if there are other people in the house but only if you won’t get caught. If you get interrupted you must start over and reset the clock to zero minutes. Detail your journey.
Next Saturday, April 7th my guest blogger will be Cherlyn Cochrane. This will be her second time guesting. If you have a moment why not check out her first guest post and then if you have the time, stop by her blog, Over A Cup Of Coffee!
