Behind the Blogger Tag Thingamajig

Thank you, P’Arc for the nomination! I know it’s not Thursday, but we’ll just ignore that and move on.

Here are the questions with my answers:

1. Why did you start blogging & why have you kept blogging?
I kind-of, sort-of wrote on Facebook. Like, wrote wrote. My goal was to post quality content with immediate results from my adoring fans in real life.
It turned out to be really hard on my self-esteem, watching ‘friends’ re-post crap and ignore my pearls. A truly wonderful (intelligent, beautiful, amazing, kick-a**) friend of mine suggested I move my act over to blogdom.

2. What is your favorite type of blog post to write?
Hands-down: humor. Even with a serious or non-fiction post, a bit of personality gets me giggling at myself.

3. What are your top 3 favorite blog posts?
From myself: I enjoyed my how-to on writing poetry, “Let’s Stay In Bed Today,” and “The Case of the Kitchen Cacophony.”
From other bloggers; I most enjoy reading short stories, humor, poetry -anything well-written, really.

4. What are some of your favorite things to do to relax?
I love curling up with a good bag of potato chips and French onion dip, with only my current book or video game to judge me.

5. What are 3 of your favorite things?
Running in the rain, cuddling during a movie, and satisfying creation.


6. What are your proudest blogging moments?
Hmmm… that time I broke out to composing every day instead of pasting what I’d already done; and every. single. time someone leaves me a thoughtful comment.

7. What are your hobbies outside of blogging?
Ha ha ha ha ha…. Oh. Maybe you were serious.

8. Describe your personality in 3 words:
Repressed, tired creationist.

9. What are your top 3 pet peeves?
Intentionally unkind people, Intentionally ignorant people, and children singing pop songs.

10. What’s something your followers don’t know about you?
Welllll… if I answered that, it wouldn’t satisfy the question any more.

I’m not sure who I’ve mentioned before and honestly feel too exhausted to double-check. So, here are some blogs you all ought to check out:

Ruth at Ruth Scribbles.

J of Thru Violet’s Lentz.

Stephen, down by the Fractured Faith Blog.

Masercot, who shouldn’t be given a computer at Potatoes and The Promise of More Potatoes.

Geoff LePard, aspiring member of MP’s Flying Circus who writes from TanGental.

Just ’cause I didn’t list you, it doesn’t mean I don’t love you. I’m firing on about half a cylinder and can therefore only recall the last two blog posts I read. Anyone can play; I’m not picky.

    I enjoyed your responses, Chelsea. I also dislike the exact same three pet dislikes you have so we must be kindred spirits.

      🙂 That’s funny, though not so unusual of pet peeves (I hope!).

    Hope you get the other cylinders working soon. It’s not a good feel. With you on kids singing pop songs. I thought it was just me being curmudgeonly grumpy…..

      I greatly dislike it, too. Especially when kids sing romance songs. Really? You’re ten.

    Facebook is like descending a glass elevator where someone has had the idea of sticking popular advertising on the walls of the shaft.

    I joined Facebook when our local art centre announced they were discontinuing their email newsletter and instead going on said Facebook – then they didn’t appoint anyone to keep it going. Heh ho. But while I was there, I joined an interest group of people reminiscing about our home town. It was okay for about three weeks when we ran out of anecdotes and things to say.

    Good answers, by the way, to some tricky questions. 🙂

      😀 and where is that elevator GOING?

      It’s a perfect description and I’d rather never see it or other social media platforms in my life. They’re ruining people.

        And people ruin them: I feel they were created with some good intentions. Twitter, for instance. A vile place now.

    I loved getting this chance to peek in the window to your world. Thank you so much for the honorable mention. I move this Saturday! I’m going to reserve any reply I may have for while I am in Fairbanks awaiting my transportation to Healy. I have not written a personal piece on this blog to date. but you never know…
