That’s How SHE Blogs

Pin It Since I am going to Blissdom Canada *insert happy dance here* in Toronto the end of October I decided to join in on this "get to know who's going" quiz that I found via Lisa the Party Mummy on The Yummy Mummy Club.

BlissDom Canada


If you are going to Blissdom Canada be sure to put your blog link or twitter link (or both) on the Mr. Linky below!!

Here’s what to do:
a) Cut and paste the quiz onto your blog.
b) Delete my answers (after carefully studying and committing each to memory. What?).
c) Answer the questions (feel free to embellish and totally make stuff up. I do it all the time).
d) Tweet a few of the bloggers you’d love to get to know better and invite them to play along.
e) In the comment section below, leave a link to your blog where you've answered the quiz questions.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


1.    Did you attend Blogher10? 

No... I WISH!! I dream of attending Blogher11 though.

2.    Are you attending BlissdomCanada this fall?  

YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!!! (I'm just a little excited... can you tell?)


3.    When are you at your blogging best – a.m. or p.m.? 

PM for sure... but mostly anytime when I don't have my three kids hanging all over me!

  
4.    How many blogs do you have? (Include the links) 

1. this one ( http://tarasviewoftheworld.com)
2. a book review blog (http://tarasviewonbooks.blogspot.com)




5.    What technical skill would you like to learn to improve your blog?

 I would love to learn all that fabulous html stuff ... I am pretty challenged when it comes to all that.

 


6.    Do you prefer the sound of silence or does action abound while you blog? 

 Silence or quiet music. No yelling kids. No fighting kids. No doorbells or phones ringing. Ideally no annoying kid cartoons playing in the background. Although I almost enjoy having The Little Mermaid or Finding Nemo or other classics playing... odd.


 


7.    Do you include the names of your family in your blog?

 Yes I do.


8.    Do you post pictures or videos of your children?

 Pretty much daily.


9.    What’s the grossest thing you’ve spilled on your keyboard?

 I haven't spilled a thing... but my daughter spilled coke once and there is unknown crumb bits and other disgusting things hidden under the keys... the disadvantage of having a white Mac keyboard with see-through sides. Icky.





10.    Ever posted something you wrote while intoxicated?

 Nope... although I have posted while taking migraine medications which is probably fairly similar!




11.    Do you go back and edit old posts just because you can?

 Only if I find a spelling mistake or something that truly horrifies me. Barely ever though.

 

12.    Have you ever suspected somebody took something you wrote and pawned it off as their own? 

 Yes. I once found a contest post of mine posted EXACTLY as I had written it... same product, same giveaway, same entry methods including the phrase "send me a tweet @tarasview"... clearly the copier didn't proofread before they posted. I got dozens of @tarasview tweets that day and had no idea why!
 


13.    Does your spouse read your blog? What do they say about it?

Yes he does... he doesn't say much about it really but I think he finds it fascinating. He tells other people about it more than I do! You can find him HERE and HERE.




14.    What’s something cool/positive/unexpected for you, that has resulted directly from blogging?
 I GET TO GO TO BLISSDOM CANADA!! And I got a job... my boss found me though my blog :)
 

15.    Link to a post (or a few) which demonstrate your writing style:

16.  Name a blog(s) that makes you exclaim, "Damn! I wish I'd written that!" 



I could go on and on and on... but I won't. (you're welcome).


Are you playing along? Leave your link here!

Hi there! I'm going to Blissdom too and am so excited (okay and a little bit nervous)

I am SO excited about Blissdom Canada, too! It should be lots of fun and there should be lots to learn. Maybe even some html? hahaha! I just google html code whenever the need arises but now Blogger makes it so easy to change the template design and colours. I'd like to add Disqus or something for threaded comments but I'll probably wait until Blogger adds that too, if ever. I can't believe someone actually copied your post and didn't bother to change the twitter handle. Anyway, I can't wait to meet you in October!

Wow...you can blog while on Migraine meds? You rock!

For the record I got you into blogging. I do say things to you about your blog... you know with spoken words and hand gestures and stuff. I am appreciative of the comments you leave on my blog. And I do tell people about your blog, because in real life you're kinda shy about it.
Love you!

Here we come!
