My weekly favorite (found in the sidebar) is a new addition to bon mot. I was so excited to come across Jenni's blog and just knew she was the first one I had to pick! She graciously agreed to do an interview for being the Weekly Fav, and I am so excited to share her with you all!
How long have you been blogging?
I've had one blog or another since 2008, but I've only had my current blog since this September!
What made you start your blog?
When I very first started blogging, it was mostly just to exercise my writing skills and share my thoughts with friends and family. Writing has always been a huge part of my identity, and I thought blogging could be a fun way to share that part of myself with others. I started my CURRENT blog because I really desire to reach out to a greater number of people -- as a serious writer, my dream is to be read by hundreds or even thousands of people!!
You just got married within the last year. What's the funniest thing that has happened in marriage so far?
Oh man... Funny stuff happens allll the time!! My husband and I never even lived in the same state before we were married, so we really had a lot of adjusting to do once we were finally married and living under the same roof! There was one particularly stressful work week when Matthew randomly brought home a puppy, which was so utterly ridiculous because he knows our dogs pretty much want to eat all other dogs. Sure enough, the two we already have were pretty much salivating as soon they caught a glimpse of the poor baby!! Matthew had to sleep on the couch with the puppy that night, and we gave it away in the morning. :( But it's still a running joke that my husband handles stress by buying puppies (which is a lot better than turning to alcohol or other destructive vices, I suppose!)!!!
What's the best part about being married?
The best part of being married is the bond you form with your spouse as your lives blend... It's that feeling that you have a partner, a sidekick, a friend who knows you inside and out and adores you anyway. I like to say that marriage is like a never ending sleepover with your best friend!!
When you grow up (since we grown ups still have dreams) what do you want to be?
My dream is to write books and blogs, tweet, Facebook, and surf the Internet all day - from home - and get paid lots of money for it. Some may call me an Internet and social networking addict, I call me career savvy. ;)
What are 5 words that best describe you?
Intelligent. Kind. Inquisititve. Funny. Moody. Selfish.
Do you think you are the same on your blog as in real life?
Yeah, pretty much! I think my personality really comes through in my blog, though in real life I tend to get tripped up, oh, I don't know, WHENEVER I OPEN MY MOUTH. My spoken words don't always come out as eloquently as my written ones. Especially after meeting new people, I often end up kicking myself for one stupid thing or another that I said in some pathetic attempt to fill an awkward silence. Yeah, actually? I'm way cooler on my blog.
Lastly, if you were getting a Grammy or an Oscar (because being my weekly favorite doesn't quite measure up to that), who would you thank?
I would thank the fans. And God. And my mom. And Dr. Phil. For making me who I am today. (Why does everyone hate Dr. Phil? Personally, I find him terribly AWESOME)
And thanks to Sarah Ann for featuring me on her weekly favorites!!!
What an honor!!! She is such a doll... Thanks for reading y'all!!
Thank you so much, Jenni, for doing the interview!
Now, if you haven't checked out her blog, do so!
