3 Things About Yourself!
I have an annoying habit of plucking my left eyebrow when in deep thought unthinkingly, until l next look in a morror and realise l have a bald brow, so then l have to get a makeup pen from Suze and fill in the empty spaces till the hair grows back!
When younger l used to have a lot of hobbies as l have aged however, these have become much slimmer to the point that these days l have very few. Of those that are left l have a strong enthusiasms for writing and reading and occasionally photography.
Outside of the WordPress community l am not that social a person, l am not anti-social to people, just selectively social and l tire of the mundanity of being overly social for the sake of so call societal norms, so tend to avoid social events where lots of people are in attendance.
Answer Nominators 5 Questions
What is the more important thing for you, your day job or blogging?
Well currently l do not have a regular day job. I am working on a project that will allow me to work from home, so for that period of time l am working within my blog. However writing has always been one of my main passions and if l could incorporate that into my business l will and would do. So, in answer to your question, both. but as with most things, it’s finding the balance.
What are your plans for the coming year?
Well getting through 2018 and in one piece mentally and physically and then approaching 2019 with renewed steps. I never make plans any longer than a a couple of weeks ahead, as things can change so quickly.
Have any of your blog posts received a surprise response?
Not really no, that’s not me being funny either, what l mean is this, it’s nice if any post gets a response. There are times when l spend a lot of time and energy on a post and very little happens and then there are other posts which are put together quite quickly and they get a lot of response. But that is the nature of the game, the time it’s released, the market that responds. I have a background in advertising and marketing so l tend to release some posts specific to a more favourable demographic which l know will trigger a response from that particular traffic. If l didn’t write as much content as l do then perhaps l would have a different response to this question.
A cat or dog, which one you have as a pet or would like to?
Well l love all animals, but l am currently owned by Scrappy Doodlepip my 4 legged companion.
What is one habit you want to give up?
First and foremost, as you know by now with me and my nominations, should you not wish to participate that’s fine. If you only wish to answer the questions l ask, then by all means just do that. I have nominated you because l believe that you and your blog warrant this award nomination as l interpret the meaning of the award itself. I will not be selecting 10-20 blogs as that is way too many, l will be choosing 9.
