Just For Fun

A blog “list of questions” for fun today! I want to thank Onehm for the list.

1. How old is your blog? I started blogging May 27, 2007. I’m still a newbie.

2. How would you categorize your blog? It’s a place I can go for girl time. Since I have all males in my life, I share home decor, girls nights with friends, tips, organizing, and gift ideas. I share funny stories and cute pics of my kids but it’s mainly girl talk.

3. Are the photos you post Photoshopped or otherwise altered? No. I’m too impatient to photoshop. If I take a picture specifically for my blog, it’s up in minutes. ;-}

4. Do you lie in your blog? No. I’m a terrible lair. It is something that I’m currently working on though. I’ve been trying to give “Lost” answers answers lately. Mainly because I’m too open with people and because I think it’s terribly funny.

5. Are you passive-aggressive in your blog? I don’t think so.

6. Do you ever threaten to quit writing so people will tell you not to stop? No. I’m way too addicted right now. But affirmations are always nice.

7. Have you deleted any of your own posts? Why? Yes. I’ve had to delete a post about talking to your child about sex. I’m reading a new book and was really excited to discuss it with my friends. However, someone put an obscene comment on it and I wasn’t moderating the comments. I had to delete the entire post. I was bummed but it was a good lesson learned.

8. Do you delete mean comments? I haven’t gotten any mean ones, yet. (Besides the one in #7.) I would probably delete it if it was a personal attack. If they disagreed with my opinion, that wouldn’t bother me. I don’t expect everyone to feel the way I do. Plus, I actually enjoy a little friendly banter.

9. If your readers knew you in person, would they like you more or like you less? I’m not sure. That’s a really great question. I would like to think that my true personality is represented in my blog, but I think it’s too early to tell.

10. How many blogs do you follow? A lot. I’ve just discovered this blogging world and love it.

11. Which blogger do you want to meet in real life? I would love to meet C Jane

12. Does your family read your blog? No. They aren’t bloggers. I’m so impressed with people who have a large list of family bloggers. I think it’s an amazing way to keep in touch and really experience each other’s lives.

13. Do you have a hit counter? How often do you check it? Yes, I check it often. Like I said, I’m new and completely obsessed.

14. Is blogging narcissistic? No. I see it as giving myself a voice and journalling my experiences. I go as far as to say that in my own way, I’m doing my genealogy. (ha ha)

15. Do you feel guilty when you don’t post for a long time? Yes.

Bonus: Do you try to look hot when you go to the grocery store just in case someone recognizes you from your blog? I can’t imagine my blog ever getting that popular. I don’t really worry about what I look like day to day and will usually run to the store in flip flops, terrycloth capri’s (which I have in many colors), and a T.

Okay, your turn!! How about your blog?!

  5. Fun to here your perception on blogging! I am so sorry you got a not so nice comment. I got one before and it freaked me out! I thought I would never post again-but I learned how to remove the comment and I just moved on.

    I love to blog too. It is bad when you run to the computer to see if anyone made a comment Ha!

    Moving away from my friends is what got be started blogging-but now it is a true addiction- Hee Hee!
