Hi, Jenny! Tell these fine people about yourself.
I am a mother of two lovely boys and wife of one. I was born the 6th of 7th children. I lived in three of the four A states but call the great Northwest my home now. In an alternate universe I would be a super cool rocker chick by day and a ninja by night. But in this world I put pen to paper and pretend.
Number six of seven? Wow! I'm the middle of five.
When and why did you start your blog?
I started in July of 2011. I'd been stalking a few blogs for a while and set mine up but hadn't actually hit publish until I went onto a WriteOnCon forum and found Megan and Rena. I knew the only way I was going to be able to connect with other writers was by joining the community. AND I can't believe everything that has happened since. The people I've met and things I've learned are priceless.
You mean me, right? :D
You have participated in quite a few blog hops. What have you learned from them?
That this community is filled with so many talented writers it's unbelievable. And that the writing community is one of the most supportive groups out there. Plus the blog hops are fun and give me ideas to fill my blog schedule.
I agree. Whenever my blog is getting stale, I join a blog hop.
What is your most memorable blogging experience?
This is a hard one. I remember the first time an author commented on my blog. That was really cool. But I also loved the blog hop Megan and I did. The stories everyone wrote were awesome. Last one-my son did a book review and the author commented on it. Seeing my son's face light up when I read it to him was one of my favorite moments.
Aw, I bet that was special.
What is the top reason you continue to blog today?
The relationships. Before I started blogging I didn't really have any "friends." Yes, I have acquaintances and family members but not friends that I had much in common with. But now I have people who support me and lift me up on my worst writing day. And understand that the weird voices in my head are normal and they will go away once I write them down on paper.
Hands down Narnia.
Nice! My mind jumped straight to Prince Caspian (blame it on the pregnancy hormones). Let's admire him for a second, shall we?
