~ What’s with the name?
Well, Spohr is our last name. It is NOT pronounced “SO-FER” or “SPORF” or “SPHORE”. It’s pronounced SPORE. According to Wikipedia, a spore is a reproductive structure that is adapted for dispersion and surviving for extended periods of time in unfavorable conditions. Like us, only spelled differently. And, ya know…not poisonous. Usually.
~ Remember after 9/11 when there was that big anthrax spore scare?
Oh yes, we remember. Mike thought all your jokes were hilarious.
~ Do you read all the comments?
Yes, I do. Even when I have a ton. Even when the post is days/weeks/months old. I read every.single.comment.
~ What kind of dog is Rigby?
Rigby is a Maltese, and she is FEMALE. You can read more about her here.
~ What do you and Mike do for a living?
Mike is a Copywriter, Web Content Specialist, and freelance writer. He is also a substitute teacher for America’s Youth. I am a writer, baby wrangler, and professional toilet breaker.

~ How did you and Mike meet?
At a drag queen karaoke bar. What, isn’t that where everyone meets?
~ My friend has a child in the NICU. What can I do?
I wrote a post about what to do in this situation, you can find it here. You can also tell your friend about Friends of Maddie.org, where many NICU families have shared their stories. And don’t forget to tell your friend congratulations on the new baby!
~ Do you accept blog ads?
I do indeed. Email me at thespohrs at gmail dot com and we can get down to business.
~ Do you do speaking engagements?
Yes. Please email me at thespohrs at gmail dot com so we can discuss what you have in mind.
~ How can I be a blogger?
Anyone can be a blogger. My advice is to write all the time. I write every day, and I have since 2002. The more you write, the better you’ll get. Write, write, write. And love it. If you don’t love it, don’t even start. I didn’t have comments on my first blog, or my second blog. I blogged without any feedback for five years, because I loved it. I still do.
~ Do you do product reviews?
Very rarely, and if I do, there has to be something awesome in it for my readers. Feel free to pitch me if you think your product meets that strict requirement. Also, please know that due to the large number of pitches I receive, I only have the time to reply to relevant requests. That means if you send me a request to do a story on teaching my teenager not to text while driving, I’m not going to get back to you. Thanks for understanding.
~ How can I contact you?
Head on over to my contact page for all that delightful information.
