The other day Emily from Martinis and Bikinis posted a fun list of questions in the spirit of Sisterhood of the World Bloggers and I because my brain is not functioning at full capacity lately I figured it would be fun to answer.
1. Why did you start blogging?
I originally started because I moved a little further from my friends and I wanted to connect with people who had similar tastes and share similar hobbies. I love the blogging community and the friends I have made and blogging always introduces me to things before the outside world usually does, which is pretty cool.
2. Who would you want to play you in a movie?
I would love Sandra Bullock to play me in a movie and if she isn’t busy and she wouldn’t mind going brunette than Reese Witherspoon would be a close second.
3. If you could travel anywhere tomorrow where would you go?
I have so many places I want to go Internationally because I have been mostly around the US already but Italy will forever be my first choice. I would also love to get to Australia, Ireland, Greece, and Rome.
My favorite thing about blogging is the community, I have made legit friends I think I will have for a very long time. There are some bloggers I talk to more than my IRL friends. That says a lot too because I am not one who talks on the phone a lot or texts but they keep me anyways.
My least favorite is the amount of time it takes, and the sometimes lack of brain power I have lately to be creative. When life is busy it is hard to keep up with everything. I think every blogger struggles with this at some point or other through the year.
5. Where do you turn when you have writer’s block?
Well I take idea from other people, thanks Emily! Duh. Just kidding. The big sources of inspiration can come from just everyday life. A magazine, a Facebook post, a cookbook, or Pinterest. There is potential posts everywhere you just have to be open to seeing it.
6. What are your favorite kind of posts to read?
I like so many things so I like a variety, book posts are obviously my favorite because I am always reading.
For the most part. My hair has always been a dark brown and I experimented in high school and college but dark brown is where it shall stay. My Mom went gray at a really young age, so I color to cover it but luckily I only have a few grays and not a full head.
8. What is your favorite decade and why?
Umm this one I guess. I think every decade had it’s challenges and good times but each year we learn more and progress or at least I hope so.
9. Have you dealt with blog drama (mean comments, dramatic people, fake friends)? If so, how did you deal?
Not that I am aware of, for the most part I wouldn’t tolerate it or play into it. Life is too short for that kinda drama. Could it happen without me knowing absolutely, to which I say have at it, I don’t really care.
In college I actually wanted to be a medical examiner. Weird I know, but I love puzzles and figuring things out. I used to love watching Dr. G Medical Examiner on the discovery channel a lot. Since I obviously didn’t make that happen, I would prefer to be a professional reader. Reading books all day maybe with a glass of wine would be the life!
I don’t like tagging others in posts so whoever wants to play along with Sisterhood of the World Bloggers, you can use the questions above and share your answers.
