1. How did you come up with your blog name?
I had gone through a spiritual drought following a really bad experience in a church. Closing out my old blog and starting this one was symbolic of the changes I wanted to make and was making. I wanted it to be a positive place, a reflection of my reawakened faith, the changes in my life and my appreciation of those things...of my desire to be able to look at my life and be content that I lived it well.
2. What is your favorite thing about blogging?
The people. I've made some good friends through blogging, some I've met in person and some I may never meet and yet they are among my closest friends. I also admit that I love the comments and feel sad when a post doesn't get any. It's like you don't love me!
3. What is one thing you have discovered because of blogging and now can't live without?
Facebook. It's true. A blogging friend led me to the dark side and I've never looked back. So many of my classmates from high school are on there and my sorority sisters from college and complete strangers, who are now friends. And the instant responses are my addiction....so much so that I refer to Facebook as Crackbook. I have connected with family I otherwise wouldn't be in touch with. I manage our church's page and one for my blog in addition to my personal page. I can't imagine life without it!
4. Facebook or Twitter? and why?
Uh, I think I just answered that one in the previous question. Why? I just don't get Twitter. I have an account and I tweet my blog posts and something else once in a while, but trying to keep up with what other people are tweeting could be a full time job. I don't enjoy it.
5. If one celeb read your blog who would you want it to be?
I would absolutely SWOON if Toby Keith read it and left a comment! It would be pretty cool, too, if one of my favorite authors or a major blogger noticed my little corner of the blogosphere. Or any of the guys from Duck Dynasty. Love them.
6. What is something you want people to know about your blog?
I guess that what you see is what you get. It's just me sharing what's on my mind, what I find interesting, what God's saying to me....so there really isn't a theme or anything going on and everyone is welcome as long as they aren't rude or threatening.
