A few weeks ago, THIS LADY emailed me about tagging me in this Virtual Blog Tour that’s been making it’s way around the blog world.
Like yellow cars, I hadn’t seen one of these “tours” until she pointed it out, but now I can’t stop seeing them. Thanks a lot, Presley 😉
You know I love silly little surveys, but this one is different because it gives the read a look into how and what the blogger is doing. Anyway, here we go!
What am I working on?
I feel like the only thing I’m not working on is keeping the baseboards in my house clean.
Professionally: I have a career that I genuinely adore, so that’s something I’m always working on. I started as an intern at my company, so it’s been a fun ride to get where I am today. A blessing/curse of mine is that I’m never fully satisfied, so I’m currently working on pursuing a few certifications related to the EAP field in hopes of continuing to move on up!
Personally: I tried to make this sound less cheesy than it is, but it’s impossible: every day, I’m constantly asking myself how I can be better than yesterday. A better person, a better wife, a better friend, sister, daughter, employee, etc. Some days I’m not better than the day before, but that’s okay. That just means I have to try again tomorrow.
Blog: This blog is my favorite hobby-turned-small-business. Writing is a passion of mine, and I get such a kick out of the fact that other people want/like to read what I write. I’m working on a redesigning the blog and I have a few little campaigns on the books. Gasp! I make money from blogging. Get over it 😉
How does my work differ from others of it’s genre?
I don’t think I’m special or different, really. Maybe it’s because I’m not of the Everyone Gets a Trophy generation. Honestly, I think my use of the fuck word tends to separate me from the pack, but that’s about it. I’m just like any other blog, besides the fact that I rarely give a shit if what I say offends you.
Why do I write what I do?
I have countless notebooks filled with thoughts that span from my pre-teen years to my life now as an old married lady; but the reason I write this blog is because everyone needs someone to relate to, don’t you think?
I’m neurotic and weird and sarcastic and honest and I have a twisted, self-deprecating sense of humor, and I think people get that about me. I started this blog for so many reasons, but I continue this blog to be an advocate for the average. I feel douchy using the word inspire but I simply want to motivate others to like themselves, accept themselves and feel good about themselves.
How does my writing process work?
I get an idea, and then I write about it. It’s that simple.
I’m not a photographer, so I’m not editing pics all the live long day. I upload them from my iPhone. I feel like I’m the only blogger without a DSLR 39387534 camera. Oh, well.
I’m normally making fun of myself or someone else, so I guess my process is: living life? And if something funny (or totally embarrassing) happens, you bet I’ll write about.
Now it’s MY Turn to Tag!
Georgia Brown is an expert of nothing and a sharer of everything. She lost 50 pounds, transitioned to a vegan diet, and started Georgia Trying Something New as a way to prove that eating healthy and working out can be fun (though some days she can’t convince herself #NetflixMarathon). She is an advocate for feeling great at any weight, and living your best life, whatever that may mean for each individual. She currently works in theatre, and is currently trying to find the balance between “ommm” and “GO.”
I’ve been blogging for a little over 4 years, and both the blog and myself have evolved in ways that I would have never imagined when I had first started. I just turned 30 this year, I’m a full-time working mama to my 10-1/2 month old son, Lucas, and wife to my high school sweetheart of 15 years. I rarely turn down a dessert, I love a good beer, and I’m slowly working on getting back into a solid fitness routine after having to take a break to regain my health and getting pregnant (you can read all about my experience through this series of posts). Stop by the blog anytime, and you’re likely to see pics of my baby, random eats, and me attempting (aka, struggling) to balance everything!
Be sure to check these ladies out. They have great blogs, but they’re both also friends of mine! Happy reading!
