Aloha Friday #32

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing heavy or too thought-provoking.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

Today’s question is:

If you could choose anyone, living or dead, to write a guest post for your blog, who would it be and why?

Let’s see . . . probably Oprah. Can you imagine the traffic I’d receive? ;-)

About the author:
Owner and founder of An Island Life. Sharing my life as a mother to 3 wonderful daughters, working as a flight attendant, and living a blessed life in Hawaii.

    Interesting question…I have no idea who I would pick. I’ll be thinking about this question for a long time now.

  2. Jenn says:

    I would think someone like Katherine Hepburn. I’d love to have some of her raw, straight to the point views on my blog! She had a pretty interesting life, too…

    Gotta to love your reason for picking Oprah.
    The first person that came to my head was my daughter Britt. I haven’t seen her for some time now and I would love to hear what she has to say about it all.

    LOL, by that reasoning, I’d have to pick Oprah too. :) But really, I’d love to have any well-known blogger guest post – just having someone think enough of my little site to write for it would be awesome!

  5. Spice says:

    Hmmmm, I’d have to say David Gilmour (from Pink Floyd). I just love him!!!!! Maybe he’d write a new song on my blog too. :)

  6. Melli says:

    I would most definitely choose Jesus! I would have Him tell us about His childhood… I want to know what went on in the first 30 years of His life!

    Melli’s last blog post..Alphabet Challenge – Letter “P”… and Friday meme’s…

  7. Terri Sue says:

    I would pick Louis L’Amour. He was a western writer and I have over 100 of his books. I wouldlove to ask him about some of the characters he wrote about!

    Be blessed!

    Terri Sue’s last blog post..Thankful Thursday

  8. Sheila says:

    I would choose King Kamehameha. I would like to talk story with him for hours.

  9. Qtpies7 says:

    That is a tough question! I think I’d want Antique Mommy to guest post, that would bring amazing traffic, lol. Blogger traffic is better than just random traffic following a star, because I think they would be more likely to stick around.
    Or Boo Mama, she’d be a great guest blogger, too.

    Qtpies7’s last blog post..I toured Northwestern College and all I got…

  10. Jennifer in OR says:

    Yes, the Oprah traffic would be nice. :-) I guess I’d have to go w/ Mellie’s choice as well. Jesus would be pretty hard to beat – can you imagine THAT traffic? Or maybe there would be none? :-) At any rate, there would be some great parables, I’m sure.

    Jennifer in OR’s last blog post..Imaginary friend, anyone?

  11. Arizona says:

    I go with Mother Theresa. I’ve always liked her even though I’m not catholic. She had her critics and her supporters and I’d like to talk with her for a while. I’d ask her to write (on my blog) about what is truly important in life. Given that she spent the vast majority of her time taking care of the sick and orphaned, I think her views on life would be very interesting to read.

    Arizona’s last blog post..Its 1 am; Do you know where your Wii is?

  12. Summer says:

    Good heavens I’ve no idea. I would probably go with Steve Irwin though because I’m a fan.

    Summer’s last blog post..Death by Chocolate

  13. Pamela says:

    Benjamin Franklin’s Wife.
    Without her, he would have been just another dissenter.

    Pamela’s last blog post..Sagging Naturally

  14. Rach (Heart of Rachel) says:

    This is an interesting question. It would be nice to have one of my favorite authors, Sophie Kinsella as a guest blogger on my blog.

  15. diana/sunshine says:

    i’d have to pick lady diana. i would have loved for her to write something about humanitary efforts made by her and her organizations. and of course, i’d ask her to write a second post on her trials of being married to old what’s his name =)

    diana/sunshine’s last blog post..i smell nothing

  16. Anne says:

    my grandma pearl, she loved to write cute little stories

    So many come to mind. Maybe Marilyn Monroe or Hugh Hefner.

  18. Renee says:

    I’ve always said that I wanted to have dinner with my Great-great grandmother. She lived to be 102 so I figured that she would have seen a lot of cool things happen in her lifetime. She was still alive when I was born, but alas we never met. I did get to meet her daughter and of course my Great Grandfather, her son and they were very cool people.

    But as for someone to post something on my blog, I don’t know…that’s a very tough one. More thinking required. ;)

    Renee’s last blog post..I slay me!!!

  19. Chrissy says:

    I would have to say for me, I would like Jenna Jameson write a guest blog for me. She certainly would have some controversial and interesting topics to write about!

  20. JHS says:

    Samuel Clemons, aka Mark Twain! I would love to see what the master American storyteller has to say about life in the 21st century!

    Great question, Kailani!

    Everyone is invited to stop by my site and answer an extremely timely and provocative question! I anticipate a lively debate, so c’mon by!

  22. Vader's Mom says:

    I would love to have either Barbara Bush or Laura Bush. I love the way they have reached out to the education system and I think they are two of the most interesting people ever.

  23. Dee says:

    Nice pictures of your mini vacation.
    I would pick my great grandfather on my mothers side who I’ve never met he died before I was born.

  24. Anele says:

    Elvis Presley. I can only imagine some of the stories he had. I’d love to hear about his time in Hawaii and just to hear that voice…meow. Thank you, thankyouverymuch.

  25. Kelly@SHE-POWER says:

    I’d have Jackie Collin. She was the first author who made me want to be a writer and I’ve seen her speak and she’s amazing. So vibrant, funny ad smart – just like me! Or at least how I aspire to be…

    Anyway, Jackie would have lots to add to SHE-POWER I think and if she’s not busy in the next month I really could do with her help!
