I haven’t done one of these in a long time so I thought, what the hell, why not do one today! Of course, I’m talking about Cee’s Share Your World post. She posts a few questions and we answer them. Nothing to it. Let’s see what she wants us to answer today. Oh yeah, if you would like to read what many others have answered, go one over to Cee’s blog and take a look!
Why did you start blogging?
I wanted to write and get to know people from the comfort and safety of my home. Well, ok, I was curious too. I didn’t know much about blogging back then but it looked like fun. I only knew of one other blogger at the time. I will tell you that I was terrified when I hit that publish button for the first time. Then I got excited because people actually were reading what I was writing! I do have to admit that my first blog was a food blog. I wrote about food and published recipes. It was great but not what I really wanted to do. So after about a year or so I got braver and started this blog….my writing blog… and I haven’t looked back since. I love blogging and the great community of people who come by here.
A piece of clothing you still remember?
When I was about six or seven my mother bought me and my older sister matching shirts. Mine was red and I think my sisters was blue (I’m not sure about that). They had a small poodle on them. It was my favorite shirt for many years. I have a picture of me wearing it too, now that my sister sent me pictures of when I was younger.
Who are you trying to reach with your blog?
Anyone and everyone. Writers, readers, I don’t care as long as they enjoy my blog and all that I offer on here.
Is there a stuffed animal in your bedroom?
Yes, there are several but they aren’t mine. They belong to my dog, Sam. He loves to play with stuffed toys. I think the ones in my bedroom are his raccoon, his beaver and probably a couple I don’t remember. He has toys in just about every room. He might (just might) be a bit spoiled.
The best birthday present ever?
Oh, that’s easy. It was for my sixteenth birthday. My dad bought me a dog. A small Shih Tzu that I named Ping-Ping. He was my best friend. My dad also bought me my very first bike that year too. So I actually have two best birthday presents ever.
What would surprise me about you?
I had to really think on this question. I’ve been blogging for four years now, I’m not sure there is anything about me that would surprise someone. Ok…..here’s something that I believe would surprise most people…..I once looked into opening a brothel. Truth! The only thing that stopped me was I found a job that I really enjoyed. The idea stayed with me for several years. I always thought I would be very good at being a madam, one that didn’t have sex with clients, though, that’s what the girls and guys would be for. I even had a couple of friends that wanted to join me. I have known some interesting people in my life. ha! Does that make me a bad person? I mean it would have been a very clean, upstanding sort of place. I’m very open-minded about things like that. Well, this should shock some people if they read it. 😉
