Because Cheeky is suffering from both the itchies and the ouchies (and might I add, also, a woman’s rightful vanity), I am now making the time to play tag. While I’m writing, I’ll be thinking about who to get next :). My babies are sleeping LATE, so, there’s no time like the present.
When did you first start blogging?
I started writing in September but didn’t give out my link until March. Very sporadic during that time, feast or famine. Now, it’s usually more feast than famine.
What don’t you talk about?
Although I use my family’s real first names, I’ll never use last. My brother totally freaks that I “give out” as much information as I do, but I’m banking on y’all not caring enough to stalk me (lol). I don’t talk politics because frankly, 1) I’m apolitical and 2) in light of #1, what could I possibly add to the conversation that’s not already being said, and by those MUCH more knowledgeable than lil’ ol’ me? 3) My blog is PG for the most part. Yeah, I’m spicy…yeah, there are times I’d like to be edgier or at times even profane, but my kids are reading along. Oh, and since I have issues with my tongue anyway, I try always to keep in mind I’m a child of the King.
Are you and your blogging persona the same person?
Sure, I’ve always written the way I speak. I’m ADD when it comes to talking–and writing–I like to conversation juggle, “convuggle”. Shelly calls it “webbing”, streams of thought that are all over the place. Sometimes I do use
bigger more precise words here, lol; although friends have mocked me about my vocabulary (“that sounds like a word Robin would use”…is it a dis? probably, but I’ll choose to believe it’s a compliment 😉 AND I’ll dumb the conversation down for them, figuratively speaking, of course! ).
How do you use blogging to build friendships?
Honestly, I don’t like this question. I don’t “use” blogging to build friendships, in its simplest form, blogging is an OUTLET. That being said, I have been surprised–pleasantly so–that has occurred. I didn’t anticipate it. I have found women to be extremely warm and generous in explaining how all this works. I had no idea this “parallel universe” existed until a year ago! And there are those of you who ARE becoming friends, who woulda thunk it? Not me!
How would you describe your writing style?
I think I already answered this. It’s pretty random and conversational. I’m neither a comedian nor a theologian, but humor and faith, and marriage and family (and relationships in general) are important forces in my life, so those are the things you’ll find me writing about most often. This is my stage for exercising my drama queendom :). Y’all can choose to attend the show or not; at least admission is free;)
I’m tagging Malissa (cause she’s so sweet), and mother/daughter bloggers Pamela & Karmyn. If anyone else picks up the game, lemme know so I can visit you, too!
