1. Who or what inspired you to start blogging? Was it a whim, or a carefully thought out leap?
Gosh - I'm not sure. The very first blog I ever read was Iraq The Model. Those brothers in Baghdad saved me - SAVED me I tell ya. I was totally down on the war and very discouraged and depressed. They renewed my faith in the Iraqi people and in our efforts to liberate them. I found A Tangled Web through ITM and discovered Brits who actually like America! I was shocked and gratified. I commented on both of these blogs for a long time before it dawned on me that I could have my very own blog. So I did it. I had also been in communication with Blonde Sagacity via ProtestWarrior and she started HER blog - and several months later I started MINE and she was very encouraging and linked to me and I to her. I thought I'd write about being a mother and how important home educating was becoming to me. Little did I know that I had very strong feelings about all kinds of crazy things - - - so that's what I do. Just vomit onto the page for your entertainment! I have since found many other blogs and I just completely enjoy making my rounds almost every night.
2. What bloggers inspire you now? Why?
Inspiration. Inspiration. Inspiration. Hmmmmmm. Different blogs do at different times. There is so much out there and most of it fascinating. I go on different tears depending on a lot of things. Take a look at the sidebar - great stuff.
3. What subjects do you enjoy writing about most? What subjects are the easiest?
I enjoy writing about my kids and husband and our life together. That is always easy and fun to do. I like relating my experiences of the world around me. Encounters with strangers and acquaintances. My perception of many things that are happening in our world.
4. If you could pick only one post to print, frame, and say, "That's me," what would it be?
It's Lord of the Flies Out On the Block. (Not a very flattering picture - but it's the truth.)
5. What is your favorite flavor of cheesecake?
PLAIN! Okay - I'll take cherry cheesecake but I'll scrape all those slimy cherries off and eat the cheesecake and the red goo.
Thank you MamaGeph! You got the electricity in the grey matter going - trying to make those connections and that is always good when one gets to be my age! 'If you don't use it - you lose it', they say.
Oh! I have to tell EVERYONE who happens to land on my little piece of the world - the girls broke their first boards in TaeKwonDo tonight. Grizzly Mama was amazed. Those little things just cut through those pieces of wood like they were butter. BAM! Board broken with no bones about it. LOL! They are a trip these girls of mine.
Have a great evening. I will be tackling Cubed's next essay over the weekend and I am adding a new 'feature'!! It will be called 'Aesop's Fable Friday'. LOL! I just found the book on sale and there are so many more fables there than *I* had ever heard of. Always loved Aesop's Fables - you will too!
