A Little Interview

Chilihead (no, I'm sorry, I have no idea why she refers to herself thusly) wants to know a little bit about bloggers. So, I'll play along:

Tell Your Blogging Story

  • How did you start blogging? I barely knew what they were, but I was interested in doing a little writing, and wanted a place to "house" it. Debbie mentioned to me that she had one and where to set one up.

  • Did you intend to be a blog w/a following? If so, how did you go about it? No, I didn't intend to be a blog with a following. Good thing, or I would be a miserable failure!

  • What do you hope to achieve or accomplish with your blog? Have you been successful? If not, do you have a plan to achieve those goals? Okay, this assumes big schemes and plans. I have none. I want people to laugh and think. Sometimes even on the same day. I want people to love my family as much as I do. I want to share what the Lord teaches me and how He blesses me.

  • Has the focus of your blog changed since you started blogging? How? Yes. I have come to realize that if the Lord puts some sort of deep and profound life lesson in my head to reveal, people enjoy it. But frequently, they're just as happy with a funny story from the diaper days.

  • What do you know now that you wish you'd known when you started? What a precious community of friends the blog community CAN be.

  • Do you make money with your blog? I only lose time and gain weight from sitting so much!

  • Does your immediate or extended family know about your blog? If so, do they read it? If not, why? Yes, they all know. My poor kids -- anytime something happens in our family that makes me laugh they ask, "Is this a blog moment?" Hubby and dad are frequent commenters, and evidently aunts, uncles, and cousins are reading but not commenting!

  • What two pieces of advice would you give to a new blogger? 1. NEVER forget the phrase: WORLD-Wide-Web. Be very careful of what you say, how much you say, and how you say it. 2. This can become a crazy addiction!

Check out the hows and whys of other bloggers at Chilihead's place!

I can relate to the sitting more and gaining weight thing. Maybe I'll concentrate on a moving around more theme on my blog for the month of July!

Deena said...

It is can't read just one:-) Loved your story!!

Awesome Mom said...

This is a very addicting hobby!!! My husband actually had wondered why I don't blog about him more. I had to break the news to him that since he had a big mouth and blabbed about my blog at work he is not off limits for my blog. I would not want him to loose his job over something that I write.

:) A blog moment, indeed. I just love that you are recording stories so I can keep up with you.

Clemntine said...

Yes indeedy. It pays to remember the WORLD in worldwide web. Great advice!

chilihead said...

Eh, I just call myself that for anonymity. Red hair and all.

Anyway...I'm so glad you played along! Excellent answers. The advice is dead on.

" I only lose time and gain weight from sitting so much!"

You and me both, Sarah. You and me both. If I could just figure out a way to jog and blog, I'd be set (not to mention rich because I know of others with the same concerns...)
