Yes they are. Especially blogging friends....
And guess what?
I have someone I'd like you to meet!
Her name is Charlotte *wave hi* and she is awesomeness.
Okay, now that you are introduced, I'd like you to meet her blog, Mason Jars & Fireflies.
I've been waiting to share her with you because a) I never was very good at sharing and part of me wanted to keep her all to myself, b) she just launched this blog not too long ago and I wanted her to have a few posts under her belt before I did the big reveal and c) I designed her blog myself so we still had a few kinks to work out (like that pesky "share button" thingy). Html coding is obnoxious!
But trust me, you guys are gonna love her. My favorite post so far is "Thrifty Nifty", literally made me laugh out loud.
You guys have to check it out!
Just do it.
And if you're still not convinced, we played a little game called "I'm Barbara Walters and you're the elusive movie star who's just coming out with a new book about her secret life" or something like that.
Anyway. I interviewed her.
Like I said, she's hilarious. Even reading her answers cracked me up!
What type of blogger are you?
The random kind! I have a crazy variety of interests and sass to spare, I think my blog reflects that aspect of my personality perfectly!
The best thing about blogging?
The ability to completely and unabashedly be myself! I get to do all of my favorite things every time I write a post; I get to focus on writing, creativity, and being silly all at at the same time, whenever I want! It's like being a kid and having indoor recess for the entire day with all the Connect 4 and coloring you can manage. My excitement over indoor recess is a direct reflection on my lack of athletic abilities/that I am kind of a nerd.
In the movie of your life, who would play you?
Zooey Deschanel. Not because I'd like to flatter myself and think that we look ANYTHING alike (cue fishing for compliments) but her personality, quirkiness, and sense of fun are things that really resonate with me. If anyone can capture how I can manage to trip over a flat surface, laugh a little too loud, and attempt to say something intellectual and profound in the span of about 15 minutes, I think it would be her.
You never leave home without?
My camera. It's not anything fancy like some of my favorite bloggers have but it's sweet, simple, and I've taken some of the best shots of my life with it. I took it with me all over Australia and it hasn't left my bag since! The opportunity for a great shot is anywhere and never want to miss a single one.
Favorite blog to read?
Oh yikes...do I have to pick ONE!? I started getting into blogging by the way of the beauty blogs, beauty blogs led to nail polish blogs, and then when I saw Renee's blog it opened up a whole new world of blogging to me! So, I guess I'll just pick one from each category? Nouveau Cheap (http://nouveaucheap.blogspot.com/) is my favorite beauty blog because as much as I love makeup, I love a good deal even more! Short 'n Chic (http://shortnchic.blogspot.com/) is my favorite polish blog because not only does she show some killer swatches she also writes beautifully and BONUS, she is from the Cleveland, OH area! And, last, but certainly not least, my favorite for daily life blog is a tie: Rosy Personics (http://rosypersonics.blogspot.com/) because she takes a different approach to blogging than some others and it's really refreshing. There is a sense of humor, variety, and intelligence in her posts that always leave you eager for the next one! And, of course, OhRenee Designs! Renee has this way of letting you see the world through her eyes and it's a funky vintage play land! Her photographs are always perfection and her excitement as well as her sense of hope and happiness are completely contagious!
Love of your life?
Easy question! My husband. For a million different reasons, for the 10 years we've been together, for all the laughter and love we share, for every time I see him smile. He is my best friend in the whole world and the person I can be my insane self with no matter what. He supports me in all things and makes me feel like I could conquer the world in a Sunday afternoon if I felt like it. I'm as crazy about him today as the first time we kissed in the hallways of Copley High and unfortunately for everyone else...we're still EXACTLY that lovey and gross together.
Nail polish. Well...wait...Coach. No, shoes. Ummmm, makeup. Scarves, for sure scarves. But...well, jewelry too. Crap.
SO. There you have it. I met this lovely girl in sixth grade and am happy to say that after ten years away from high school, we were able to "meet" again! I have the blogging world to thank for that. Well and Facebook. But I like the blogging world better. :)
