B.Y.O.C. (bring your own crazy)

It’s Friday and time for BYOC – Bring Your Own Crazy! A couple of questions we answer to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break. Copy to your own blog and enjoy!

This week my questions are going to themed…as in they are all about blogging and just to throw you off – there are more than 5 this time!!

1. When did you begin blogging? Do you plan to do it a long time or do you think you’ll stop after a while?

I began blogging in I think April of this year 2011.  I began blogging because I thought it would be a great way to journal the crap running around in my brain!

2.  What do you enjoy more - blogging yourself or reading other’s blogs?

This is a tough one. I started blogging because I was reading so many blogs and thought ya, I could do that.  I never thought oh, I could make money or anything like that.  Blogs I read inspire me and make me laugh and give me ideas.  The blogging world is full of such amazing people!

3.  What’s the biggest thing blogging has taught you? Biggest surprise about blogging?

That people are interested in what I have to say, even if they aren't my family,  my mom is my most critical reader.

4.  Have you met any other bloggers in real life – solely because of your blog or theirs?

Nope, but I really truly hope some day I will. 

5.  Does your blog have a general theme as in one topic or do you cover everything and anything?

again Nope!  The title of my blog is "Just Stuff to Say"  and that is what I mean.  I might post a funny story about my kid, my dogs, or a recipe, you never know what you might find here.  That may be my downfall?

6.  Are you public or anonymous? Whichever you are – do you ever wish you were the other?

I’m public, I share pictures of everything!  Hopefully I live in a safe enough environment.  If I ever feel that it isn't right then I will do what I need to do!

7.  What’s your best blogging advice for a new blogger?

This is so cliché – but be yourself. I am me. I can’t be anyone else and I have to try to believe I offer my own “flare”.

8.  Does anyone in your real life read your blog/know it’s address? Do you wish they would or wouldn’t?

Yes, and no!  My mom and sis know about my blog.  Sometimes they read sometimes they don't.  I post my blog on facebook.  I hope my blog inspires positivity.  I don't care who reads my blog I just hope they realize this is my way to say what I need to say, nothing personal no hard feelings.  Twice my mom brought up hurt feelings about something I wrote so I changed it.  My desire is to voice my thoughts and feelings without hurting anyone.  Sometimes I care about their opinion sometimes not. 

9.  Do you enjoy blogging or do you view it as a chore? How often do you blog?

I blog because I want to, know one makes me.  I blog when I have something to say.  I like having some help in the thought process, like BYOC.  This sometimes gives me an idea or puts me on track.
10.  Do you tell people in your real life that you blog? Or keep it a secret?

I mention it on occasion.  I don't feel I need to keep it secret.  If someone mentions their blog I ask about it.  If someone asks me about something and I have blogged about it I send them my way.
