Blogger Friend School
Assignment for Week of September 3.
A. I was first introduced to blogging when my dh and I were visiting with his family at the shore. There his niece was blogging on her laptop, I had never heard of it before and thought it was "strange" that people would want to put stuff up for perfect strangers (as well as friends) to read. A couple of years later (2003), a friend I had met online through a yahoo group started blogging and in order to read her blog, you needed to be a registered reader, so I registered for a Xanga account. I tried blogging a couple of times, but didnt really continue. It wasnt until December, 2005 that I really got into blogging. I signed up for a homeschoolblogger.com account and then a homesteadblogger.com account. I started getting comments on my blog and visiting others blogs and leaving comments and it was so much fun getting to know people who had things in common with yourself, but lived all over the country.....and I have not stopped blogging since (Except for a few months when I did not have internet service).
B. As far as a dream place to blog, probably where I do, right here at home where I am most comfortable. I like to visit different place, but I am definitely a homebody! All my other places I would either be to busy doing other things or just thinking to blog!
C. I usually blog in the morning before school, afternoon between lunch and quiet time, or in the evening after my children have gone to bed.
D. My favorite beverage besides spring water is freshly squeezed lemonade in the summer with stevia or a cup of hot licorice & peppermint tea in the wintertime!
E. My favorite fiction book is Pride & Prejudice. Non-fiction - the Bible
F. My favorite dessert (thats a toughy) is brownies and Breyers mint chocolate chip ice cream....(and then there is blueberry pie, apple crisp, peach cobbler and watermelon)
G. A scripture that has been an inspiration to my spiritual growth is Philippians 4:8, reminding what I need to be thinking about. Another is Micah 6:8
