I need to give out a dose of Thanks! to my friend Eddaz.  She nominated me for this:


Of course, there are rules:

Here are my answers to her questions:

How my blog started:

I had been thinking about it for a bit before deciding to leap.  I was looking for a more effective and efficient method of journaling, and I had an issue with my dad that prompted me to begin.  I just had my one year anniversary a couple of days ago, and in that time, this process has morphed in to several different things.  I still post about personal things and express my opinion on some deep and controversial topics.  But, I’ve been steered towards photo and music stuff along the way too.

A piece of advice for new bloggers:

If I could give one piece of advice to someone considering doing this, or who’s just started, it would be to be yourself, honest and steadfast, in everything you write about.  Yes, you may have some that disagree.  Yes, you may get some negative comments.  Keep doing what you do, no matter what others think.  Some other quick bits of advice would be to always be respectful when posting comments on others’ sites, even if you have a differing opinion, and refrain from getting into pissing matches with someone who attacks one of your posts.  If they don’t like it, fine.  Just ignore their comments, and stay true to what you do.  Have fun!  😃


There ya’ go.  Hope any newbies here take my advice, and have fun.  If it’s not fun, what’s the point?  And, thanks again to Eddaz for the shout out!  I really appreciate it.  😊
