Just Jen in Ten

There is a blogger that I would like you to meet today who I've tweeted so many late nights she's crocheted a legwarmer or two among other warmers that could only be imagined and explained in the realm of the twitterverse (or porn industry) that wouldn't really be appropriate anywhere else.  Twitter is kinda like Vegas that way.

I met her shortly before she won the coffee whore mug I gave away last year, hopefully proudly used in the company of her family and children on a regular basis..if not, I still love her anyway and I think you will too if you don't already know her.

She's also currently in a voting war to be named Best Parenting Blog in Western Washington that if you click RIGHT HERE real quick, you can cast your vote...we'll wait for you to come back.

*Cue the Jeopardy music please...

She did not ask me to plug this little nugget for her but she deserves it so I hope you really voted, if not I can always cue the music for you again..

Okay now that that's out of the way, please welcome my Featured Guest today, blogging her way through the roller coaster that is her life:  Just Jennifer!

How long have you been blogging?

Two years 4 months

What piece of advice can you give to unseasoned bloggers?

I personally love garlic and cilantro...wait, that's not what you mean, is it?

If someone came to me and asked my advice on starting a blog, I'd first ask them why they want to blog and what they hope to gain from it. Do they have the time to do it well? Will it be purely personal, or are they interested in the idea of making a little money? Those are important things to think about as a blogger. Then I would encourage them to be authentic.

When is your favorite time of the day and why?

I like both right after dinner and after the kids go to bed. After dinner because everyone is fed and relaxing. We usually have good family time and conversation during that time. Of course after the kids go to bed is when I have my wine, watch my shows and whatnot.

Where were you last Tuesday?

It will totally depend on when you publish this, but chances are, I was sitting right here blogging, reading blogs, tweeting, checking out Facebook, making a quote graphic on Photobucket, yelling at my kids behind me, doing laundry, scooping my cat's box and/or taking a picture and sharing it to Instagram. Yes, I can do all of that at once!

Who or what brings you the most inspiration?

My husband. He is amazing.

What is your favorite movie?

Dirty Dancing. "Nobody puts Baby in a corner." Swoon! I mean, that's my favorite movie for ages now, but I love some other great movies. Love me some tear-jerker chic flicks. And epic movies. Like The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Why should people read your blog?

I blogged for a year before I discovered the blogosphere. The only people reading me were my mother and a couple of my friends. They read because they love me. I think others are reading me now because I wear my heart on my sleeve, totally not afraid to put myself out there. I'm not good at being cagey. I think I also have a unique life perspective as the wife of a chronically ill man, as well as having bad eyes. I also have cute kids and a fat cat, so there's that.

What blog post of yours is your favorite?  Check This Out

Where is the most interesting place you’ve been?

Most interesting to whom? Because what I find interesting and what you find interesting could be very different. I really don't know. I haven't been many places....ummmm...I really don't have anything to put here because everything I think to say sounds lame.

I mean, I've been some places, but nothing exotic like Europe or Egypt or Australia. So yeah, lame.

This or that:

Gloves or Mittens? No one besides toddlers wear mittens!

Air Guitar or Lip Sync? Totes lip sync

Cape or Mask? has to be a cape

Heads or Tails? Heads, because tails....ew.

Pie in the Face or Slip on a Banana peel? 
I would be more likely to slip on a banana peel.

Agreed about the banana peel Jen! I know the pie would find me too..

You can find Jen on the twitter @JenAnnHall or on facebook: Just Jennifer
She's also got some pins over on the Pinterest, you know, in case you're ever there for more than five minutes..

She also writes other places like Band Back Together and Girlfriendology.

AND? She also has a cool monthly linky that leaves a post open for a whole array of possibilities that I invite you to join in on the FIRST Tuesday of the month which always comes up fast.  She reminds me all the time and still I don't join her as often as I'd like especially since my son is in the Did You Know stage...

Check it: 

THANK YOU so much for hanging out today Jen and for your support over the last year! I hope we can have a coffee together - putting it out there for the universe to hear..
