Once upon a time, my readers consisted of 13 friends and family members. That has definitely changed since February, and I'm positive that most of my regular readers are other bloggers. Today, I'm joining my friends Jessica and Britt for some blogger Q&A for "From Blog Life to Real Life"!
Although I haven't seen her in eons, I grew up in theatre with Anna from Rambly Blog. (This girl can cook and craft, and she has such a pure and good heart!) At one of my best friends' weddings, I also met Jayme from Wedding Voices and Lindsay from The Delicious Domestic!
Too easy. I want the wardrobe (accessories and all) of Lauren from From My Grey Desk. It may be different from my style, but the more I fall in love with her clothes, the more I'm beginning to think that I've never known what my actual style is!
4. You are stuck on an island. Which blogger would you want with you to help you survive?
I would want it to be Caitlin from Healthy Tipping Point! This woman is fit and adventurous, and I am always really impressed by how thorough her personal research is, whether out of interest or necessity. I've always wanted to do The Amazing Race with either my friend Caitlin (a different Caitlin) or my husband. They're competitive, athletic, rational, respectful, and fun solution-thinkers. Blogger Caitlin seems to be the same way.
5. The first blogger you remember "meeting" and connecting with?
I e-mailed Jessica (listed above) back in February when I made my blog public. I started reading her blog months earlier when she started, and I liked where her blog was headed and loved seeing it grow. She was so gracious with her e-mail responses to me, and now, we're crazy close.
6. Any blogger that you admire and look up to?
I really admire Jenni from Story of My Life. She is a brilliant writer! She works hard to build her readership through fresh content and stunning photos. She gains genuine readers, not just "followers" pictured in a box on her sidebar. She's authentic, and I always leave her blog wanting to be her new best friend!
7. Who is the craziest/funniest blogger?
I share a love of wit and sarcasm with Bobbi from Today, I'm Bobbi and Michelle from Shell Bell. I wouldn't call them crazy, unless they hide it really well on their blogs (!), but they're funny. I love their understated writing styles! A balls-out crazy crowd favorite is Erin at Living In Yellow. She's a fireball!
8. There's a reality television show for bloggers, who would you want to be casted with you?
Everyone linked in this post (and then about 20 other of my favorite bloggers). I don't know that we'd be a very dramatic bunch, but it sure would be fun!
9. Some bloggers have really cool jobs. Anybody you'd like to swap careers with?
I love everything about the sisters from The Letter 4! They are talented, and they have used their blog for so much good! Their blog landed them on The Martha Stewart Show to share their crafty projects. They co-founded The Letter 4 + 1. And now, Jamie and Janae have started bop & bod. I wouldn't want to swap careers with them because I'm not as creative as them, but I'd love to be the operational arm of their team! They're oozing with creativity!
10. Favorite blog design?
I can't lie. I'm still pretty obsessed with my own! (Thank you, Bobbi!)
I probably shouldn't ask this since I already read a gazillion blogs, but...
