Let’s all take a moment and bask in the awesomeness of my creative blog title for today, shall we? I mean honestly some days it takes all I have to come up with something that original.
Anywho, Kaeley over at My Mind’s Lends nominated me for a Liebster Award, I am honored. Since I have already done a few posts from other nominations in the past, I thought I would just answer Kaeley’s questions.
1. What is your best piece of blogging advice?
The best advice I can give anyone is to just be yourself. Blog for you. Don’t blog to make money or gain followers, those may never come. Blog because you love it. Blog about what you want to talk about. You will make real connections being you.
2. Do you prefer blogging in the morning or at night?
I try to blog in the mornings before work if I don’t have a post already scheduled. Some mornings that doesn’t happen and I will squeeze in a post over lunch or whenever I can. My mornings can get pretty intense, I wake up at 4:30 am to work out, get showered, do my make up, pack two lunches, take care of the dogs, take care of any dishes that may be left from the night before, iron work clothes, make breakfast, get dressed…that is a lot to do before 7:15 am.
3. If you could meet one blogger in person, who would it be?
I would love to meet Joanna at Jaybirds Flight in person! I would love to just hop on a plane and go visit her in CA.
4. For those who don’t already know, what is the primary focus of your blog?
I don’t really have a primary focus. Ha! I just blog about whatever is on my mind, what I am loving or hating, my daily adventures, topics that pull my heart strings….anything and everything is welcomed here.
5. Why did you decide to start blogging?
I wanted a place to document my daily life. I also realized how wonderful the blogging community is, and hope to make new friendships and connections.
6. Sweet or sour?
7. Hot or cold?
Cold! I love the winter time and I would much rather be cold than hot!
8. Do you believe everything is black and white, or do you prefer the idea of a gray area in the middle?
Sometimes I believe things are black and white, like right and wrong. However, I also believe in gray areas in some situations as well. Some things are not always yes or no or easy to decide. I feel that it is important to have an open mind, and sometimes things to fall in that gray area.
9. What three songs would be hits from the soundtrack of your life.
I am going to pick very random songs…it is hard to narrow them down to just 3!
Little Things- Good Charlotte – This song reminds me of high school and early college. Good Charlotte, Sum 41 and Newfound Glory were all popular then and I can’t tell you how many car rides were full of them!
Here I Go Again- Whitesnake – I have talked about this song before, it was the song that played as we were leaving my grandma’s house in PA when we moved away and always seemed to play when we were traveling. It has a special meaning and place in my heart and always will.
Meet Me Halfway – Black Eyed Peas – This song always reminded Chris and I of our relationship at the beginning when we were traveling between Birmingham and Atlanta to see each other.
10. If you could live anywhere else, where would it be?
While I love that our home is now Birmingham, Alabama…..I do miss Atlanta, GA. Maybe one day I would like to move back. I miss the city, all the things there are to do, and all of my friends. I like that Atlanta and Birmingham are not that far apartment, no matter which city we reside in…we can always easily visit the other. I need to make a trip to Atlanta soon!
I love answering questions and reading other bloggers answers. I feel it is the best way to get to know someone. If you haven’t met Kaeley yet, go check out her blog My Mind’s Lens.
I also wanted to share the new addition to our basement. I started to write a post about this on Friday…but car accidents and other things seemed to take over the day. Does it get more awesome than Mario and Yoshi? I think not!
One more day people….we can do this!!!
