I’ve been tagged! Again!!
This one looks interesting though, so I’m going to do it.
The amazingly sweet and talented Kimmylyn at Jogging In Circles tagged me for the Peek Inside Meme, so here goes.
How long have you been blogging?
Well, I had an old blog that started back in March of 2007 and lasted through, March of 2007. Then November 4, 2007 I moved to this blog and here I am. A whopping 3 months later 🙂
What inspired you to start a blog and who are your mentors?
I love to write, I always have. But I can’t ‘write’ by pen for long or my hand cramps really badly. The amazingly talented mistress of snark, Courtney at The Only Thing I Know was the first blog that I ever read and the first blogger that I knew. She is the one who inspired me to start. I don’t know that I have any mentors so much as people I stalk and idolize 🙂 Courtney, Jennifer, Alli, Casey, Mishi and Lotus. Each of those women I admire for their various talents, wit and abilities in this great blogosphere. I strive to one day be as witty, fun, amusing and talented as they are.
Are you trying to make money online, or just doing it for fun?
I am doing it for myself, but I wouldn’t be opposed to making money off of it. 🙂
Who wouldn’t like to have some extra cash. Plus, I miss pulling in a paycheck. I’ve always worked, since I was about 15 and it’s really weird and disconcerting almost… to not be.
I blog because I’m trying to get back into writing, I love chronicling my kids lives and insanity for friends and family around the country. It’s easier and cheaper than my other addiction, scrapbooking.
Blogging allows me to express myself and be creative. It’s been a learning experience for me and I love it.
What 3 things do you love about being online?
1. The learning aspect. I’ve become much more technologically savvy since being online, I’m learning photoshop and a teensy weensy bit of code.
2. I am learning alot about myself as well. Discovering that I have a passion for photography and an obsession with a certain camera
3. I love the different women and men from all walks of life that I’ve come in contact with. I love the subtle way each one influences me, teaches me and adds something to my life and my perspective.
What 3 things do you struggle with online?
I’m not going to tag anyone on this, but I adore each of my readers, new and old.
If you would like to do this I would love to come read about you.
