Sunday Stealing: The Pretentious Blogging Meme

1. How long have you been blogging? Since June 2005

2. What made you start? I wanted to leave a comment for a friend who has started a blog. Assuming I needed to register to do so, I started one. It was pretty pathetic. Here is my very first post.

3. Who inspired you? My kids, I was inspired to document their every moment.

4. About how many hours a week would you estimate you spend on your blog? About 20 hours on my blog, linking, researching, reviewing, posting, photos, memes, commenting.

5. What kind of experience or background do you have with writing? I have always written. Poems, stories, journals. I got my very first journal (a Holly Hobbie one) for my 7th birthday. When I look at it now, I really wish I wrote more. There are so many empty pages and the ones that weren't empty, I was busy apologizing for not writing. This is my only experience!

6. Talk about how you come up with blog topics. Where do you get your ideas? Whatever is going on at the moment. I wish there was more time to actually just talk about random topics that sit in my head but that is not possible.

7. What or who inspires you and your blog? Me, me and me...I just want to write about my life, and talk about my kids. Everything else is just fillers.

8. Where and/or how do your brainstorming for your blog? Oh, you know...I sit at the table and look at my list of things to review or commitments I have for PR folks and put real life experiences on the backburner. A story about Goddess' first Valentines Day card from a boy story has been sitting with me for over 2 weeks.

9. Do you have any blogging rules or guidelines you follow? Nope

10. Is there anything you will not blog about? Nope

11. Do you have any sort of a publishing schedule in terms of day of week or topic? Nope, although someone tried earlier this week to get me on one and I declined.


  1. Awwwwwwww, documenting every moment of your kids' lives....awesome.

    Mine's finished and posted now if you'd like read my answers. Just come on over by clicking HERE

    Hope your weekend so far, has been great.

  2. Great answers.

    I do set some rules for my blogging. Part of my OCD maybe. Part I'm really set in my ways.

  3. You couldn't imagine who would want to read your posts, and here you are 5 years later, still posting, and people are still reading--you must be doing something right!
    Can't wait for the Goddess Valentine story ;)

  4. Kids are the best. But they grow up too fast! Says a father of four... :)

  5. That's cool- I enjoyed your first post.

    Have a great week.
