4 Quick Answers to Get to Know Me

Hi!  My name is Brandi and I am new to the blogging world in terms of writing one myself.  This is my very first post!  Can you tell I’m a little excited??  The excitement fades in and out, occasionally replaced by fear and self-doubt.  Regardless of that little voice asking “why are you doing this”, I’m pushing forward.  So, let’s get right to it. 🙂

This will be in question and answer format, sort of like an interview.  Here goes:

Who are you?

Who am I?  That’s a question I ask myself fairly regularly.  First and foremost, I’m a wife and mother.  I have been with my husband for almost 15 years and together, we have 5 beautiful and happy children.  I never thought I’d have that many kids, but there it is.  We homeschool and spend a crazy amount of time together.  The time I’m able to steal away is spent thinking, crafting and putting off housework.  That’s me in a nutshell.

Why are you blogging?

That’s a loaded question, really.  Everything I read says NOT to use your blog as a diary, but that’s kind of what spurred this in the first place.  That, and my dreams of having an online bakery were quickly dashed when I learned the laws of our state.  Blogging has been an idea I toyed with for a few years off and on.  Just getting to it now makes me a little sad, but at least I’m doing it.  I really enjoy sharing and talking, but my husband can only sit and listen so long.  Having a blog allows me to share what I’m passionate about.

What will you be blogging about?

Again, my research has led me to NOT doing what I ultimately want to do.  Having a blog that focuses on everything and nothing is a no-no.  So, I thought long and hard about what I’m most passionate about and came up with crafting/creating.  That is the umbrella under which my blog stands, D.I.Y. and craft (baking included).  I still consider this a lifestyle blog and will talk about just that.  I’m no fancy, well-traveled, hip blogger.  What I am is a mom who has a LOT of time on her hands.  I will blog about projects, things I’ve tried, what I love/hate or hate to love and what I do.

Annnnd…How can I leave feedback?

This seems a strange question.  But, it’s listed on a list of what I should do for my first blog post.  Even though the question seems strange, the answer is not.  If you’re reading this or any other post that is to come, I LOOOVE comments!  It makes this seem like a conversation and I love nothing more than to talk.  You can also email me.  And yes, I will respond.

As mentioned earlier, I wholeheartedly enjoy sharing.  But you can’t share alone!  I’d love to hear from you, even if it’s just “Hi, my name is…”

  1. Your entry post is so fun! Although, technically, I’ve been blogging for a couple years, now is when I’m actually attempting to BE a blogger! Nonetheless, it’s nice to meet you! 🙂

    1. Thanks Kendall, it’s nice to meet you too! I’m quickly learning that there’s a LOT that goes into blogging. I’m having fun though and it’s funny to write “blogger” as my occupation.
