The Questions I was asked and need to answer!

  1. When did you first start blogging on WordPress? Oct 11, 2014 was my first official post, but then I didn’t post again until May 4th, 2015 when I decided that I was going to start doing it regularly.
  2. What was the reason you started to blog?  I journaled a lot as a kid and I knew that it was cathartic for me.  
  3. Do you use any other blog websites? Are they easier/better than WordPress.com? and why?  I write my originals on WordPress and then sometimes I will upload them onto BlogHer.  I don’t post all of my blogs on there and no, I don’t think it is easier.  I find WordPress very easy to navigate.
  4. What is your favorite season, and why?  I love the fall.  It is beautiful here in Michigan.  Football has started, Baseball is ending and the weather is wonderful.
  5. I know you love chocolate, you gotta love chocolate, right? What you’re favorite chocolate bar from where you’re located?  I actually could take or leave chocolate, that being said my favorite chocolate bar is “Hershey’s Cookies and Cream”.
  6. Think back to Elementary School, what did you want to be when you grew up?  A teacher during the school year and a hairdresser in the summer!
  7. Do you write novels? Have you started a book, or short story?  I don’t write novels, haven’t written a book or short story.  My pipe dream for life is to write and publish a book.  It would be more of a memoir!
  8. I love to draw, do you have any little artistic skills that you like to do? OH no, my writing is the only artistic skill I have.
  9. Quick, what’s on your right?  My giant Great Dane is laying in bed beside me!
  10. Do you prefer to shop online, or offline?  I prefer not to shop!!  LOL, I am not a huge shopper, but when I am, offline.
  11. Have you ever seen a live wild animal in person? If so, what kind and where was it located?  Other than at a zoo, no, no wild animals.
