1. How long have you been blogging?
My one year blogaversary was January 4! You can deposit all congratulatory money into my paypal account and I will buy the flowers and gift cards that you all would have bought me if you knew where I lived.
2. What piece of advice can you give to unseasoned bloggers?
Blogging can sweep you off your feet, take you all over the world, and allow you to meet new friends and brands you wouldn’t have the chance to meet otherwise. But it can also turn into a numbers game that can burn a blogger out.
Avoid the numbers game, the competition, and the comparisons. A blog should be for you first, then your intended audience. Never lose sight of why you started writing. Quality of Quantity. Your readers will always know.
3. When is your favorite time of the day and why?
I love when I walk through the door after work. Some days the house is quiet and it’s just me, the cat, and silence. I can do bits of house work, begin dinner, and read the flyers without distraction. I can go to the bathroom without a toddler asking to see the pee pee. I can fold and put away laundry without an assistant pulling my piles apart.
Other days I come home to the squeals of my daughter waiting at the top of the stairs; her outstretched arms welcoming me, begging me to “come see.“
4. Where were you last Tuesday?
I was at work, but not because I wanted to be. It was the first day back after the Christmas holidays and I was tired. My head hurt from a chocolate hang over and I almost put bailey’s in my travel mug thinking it was creamer. Imagine explaining THAT mistake to a police officer!
5. Who or what brings you the most inspiration?
The likely answer here would be my daughter, and if I didn’t say her then it would be Brian but I’m not going to say them. They do inspire me, however, most of my inspiration comes from the firey determination I have within myself. My father gave me this and I am forever grateful. He taught me from the very beginning to believe in myself, to fight for what I knew was right, and to never give up. That is what fuels me. That is what inspires me.
6. What is your favorite movie?
Hmm, this one’s a toss up. I have a hard time picking favourites because there’s so many genres.
Like what do I do if I’m having a flamboyant day and I’m flipping through the channels only to find that both Grease AND Steel Magnolius is on? Two of my favourites. BUT I’m having a tap dancing, jazz hands kind of day!
I’ll go with Grease.
Should it have been a laze around, sitting with girlfriends, need a cry kind of day then I would have chosen Steel Magnolius.
7. Why should people read your blog?
Are there people not reading my blog?
8. What blog post of yours is your favorite?
(which means she gave me no link and no choice but to show you her awesome dance moves)
9. Where is the most interesting place you’ve been?
10. This or that:
Gloves or Mittens? Mittens! Are you kidding? Gloves separate the fingers, leaving them lonely and dependent on generating their own body heat.. Together they unite and become toasty! Who is wearing gloves? Tell me now!
Air Guitar or Lip Sync? Always air guitar, always swinging my arm around in a circle, and always singing loudly.
Cape or Mask? Mask for sure! Capes don’t look good on me, and I wouldn’t be able to find one that matched anything I own.
Heads or Tails? Tails. I already have a head.
Pie in the Face or Slip on a Banana peel? Pie in the face for SURE! I love pie! I can’t eat a banana peel.
Best answer to number 9 yet! Thanks Leighann for taking the time to come by! Anytime you want to come again or meet for coffee, you let me know!
