As a further opportunity to share a little about yourself and find out about your fellow bloggers, here is the second installment of ‘Me, Myself and I,’ a weekly collaboration I have started with the lovely Sare over at Diary of a Teachaholic. For further information about the link up, simply click here.
It is Sare’s turn to ask the questions this week…
1. Why did you start blogging?
I was experiencing a difficult time in my personal life. As I had always enjoyed writing, The Bloke suggested that I start a blog, and the rest is history really. It’s a very addictive hobby with a wonderful network of support, and it has been the best form of therapy I have ever had!
2. What is the best book you’ve ever read?
It has to be ‘I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings’ by Maya Angelou. I’ve had to buy a second copy because the first one is so work out!
3. If the next song you heard was the last, what would it be?
It would almost certainly be ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ by Journey. The song has followed me throughout my entire life, being released in the year I was born, and I never get tired of listening to it. It’s important to note here that any other version, particularly those done by GLEE (bleurgh) are not included in this.
4. What is your favourite post that you’ve ever created?
I’m going to cheat here. My favourite post to write was one that I created after I had handed in my resignation – ‘I Quit My Job Today‘, and the response that I received was unbelievable. My favourite one overall is ’23 Things you Should Actually Do Before You’re 23′ – it is still seen at least 30 times a day despite being written 18 months ago and i’m proud of it.
5. What is the one book, album and luxury item you would have if you were stranded on a desert island?
The book would be ‘I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings’ by Maya Angelou. ( See question 2). The album? Jagged Little Pill by Alanis Morissette – it’s still one of the only albums I can listen to all the way through and enjoy every song. The luxury item? Don’t judge me when I say a packet of cigarettes… Nothing better than sitting on a beach, reading the book, listening to the album and smoking a cigarette. (Don’t show my mother this post haha!)
What about you guys? What are your answers to these questions? Feel free to create your own response and link back to myself and Sare.
