An Amateur I Am

I want to let you know that I started my blog blindly a couple of years ago. I knew nothing about blogging or all the little buzz words associated with it....still don't. My whole intention of keeping a blog was to have my own personal online diary of my daily life. I also found it to be very mind freeing and therapeutic.

Only in the past year have I even realized that people other than my family and friends actually read my blog. I myself, now have several favorite blogs that I read. I never knew you could actually get to know someone just by reading their words or observing how their blog is decorated.

Today a blog I follow had an activity posted. I know for sure that I don't really know what the proper procedure for enacting it is, but here is my version:

The rules are:
Respond and rework

Answer the questions on your blog, replace one question of your own invention
Add one additional question

What is your current obsession? I have a few...taking pictures,sightseeing, and blogging.
Where are you right now? In the study upstairs.
Coffee or tea? Or something stronger? All listed at one point or time
What is one of your favorite movies? Shawshank Redemption
What is one thing you are looking forward to? My son visiting this year
Who was your childhood crush? Chad Everett, Glenn Campbell, and Parker Stevenson just to name a few.
What is your current favorite song? Brighter Discontent by the Submarines
What would you like to get rid of? The weeds that overtake my yard
What's your favorite book? God Rides a Harley...I think that was the name of it
Why did you start your blog? As a way to release my thoughts and daily activities
If money was not an issue, what is one thing you would purchase for yourself? a new car was the first thing that popped into my mind.
If you could live in a foreign country, which one would it be? Not sure.....somewhere warm for sure.
Would you consider yourself adventerous? Yes, but I do like to have a soft spot to fall.
Tipple of choice? Vodka mixed with anything.
What is one trait about yourself that you are proud of? I think I am a good mother.
What is your wish for the future? That everyone will realize that we are all one.
If you had one day left in this world, how would you spend it? Having fun with my family.


  1. Yay! I am so glad you took the award questions. It is really fun to find out a little more about our favorite bloggy friends.

    I also wanted to thank you for the book suggestion the other day. I will check out that author - I wrote it down.

  2. I started my blog for the same reasons as you, and the same thing has happened to me. It is the nicer side of the modern world!

    I will do the award question thingy tomorrow when I have more time :-)
