I was tagged by a new blogger friend (caterpillar) to answer the following 10 questions, her friend had her do it.
1) Why did you create a blog
I took a few creative writing classes over the years and heard about blogging. I did a search online and found out how easy it was to create a “free page.” I found an old girlfriend from when I was in the Air Force (over 20 years ago) on facebook and found out that we were kindred spirits with our writing interest. We encouraged each other and I’ve been blogging steadily since February of this year.
I really get a kick out of seeing my thoughts down on paper. I’m finally (almost) over the insecurity of sharing my thoughts (sort of). I really enjoy writing funny posts but sometimes I show my soft underbelly. I get so excited when I get a comment or a new person starts following me. It can put me in a good mood for the whole day.
2) What kind of blogs do you follow
I’ve only really started following other blogs the last month or so. But so far I like following other woman bloggers who are just kind of stumbling through life, but have the ability to laugh at themselves. I really want to find some bloggers who have retired abroad, that prospect really appeals to my husband and I. I love the idea of that kind of adventure
3) Favorite make-up brand?
4) Favorite Clothing Brand
5) Your indispensable makeup product?
Face moisturizer, I’m not real particular on a particular brand
6) Your favorite color
Blue, like the sky
7) Favorite perfume
Don’t wear it too much. Usually something citrus like or earthy tones- . I don’t like flowery smells.
8) Your favorite film
I like a movie that delivers good laughs and a good cry. I think Shawshank Redemption is one of my favorites, I just love the ending. I’m a sucker for a happy/sappy ending.
9) What country would you like to visit
I would love to go to Italy.
10) Write the last question and answer it yourself
Do you want to be published someday?
When I first started writing that’s what I thought about (constantly), how hard can that be. But now, not so much anymore. I’m just having fun with my blog, writing whatever thoughts come into my head, no pressure. It’s all good.
I’m glad Caterpillar tagged you so I get to know you better. I didn’t know that you were in Air Force which is interesting to know 🙂
I love that you are blogging, you are growing so much as a writer and as a person who is happy just doing what feels good. You are inspiring me to get with it more and write more. Thanks! Your friend from the Air Force!
Sandy this blog was so interesting and revealing. I enjoyed it so much, it makes me think about so many things in my past and the memories of my parents. I am working on their geanology and finding out so much it blows me away, So many secerets on my mothers side. How I wish I had asked more questions a child.
