7 Random Things About Me

Since I seem to have gained a plethora of new readers lately, I thought it'd be about time to do another About Me post! I just want to welcome everyone in and help you feel at home, so figured this would be a good way to do that. And since I've been awarded a couple blog awards lately that I keep forgetting to mention, that seemed like it'd be a good platform for this!

I was awarded the Versatile Blogger award by Debbie Does Creations back in March. Thanks, Debbie! Now I'm supposed to tell you 7 random things about me and nominate 15 other bloggers to join in. In the spirit of not making this an ever-expanding chain-letter of an award, I'm going to change the rules and nominate 3. (Hey, it's my blog and I can change the rules if I want to!)

7 Random Things About Me

I'm a major introvert. Seriously. I could not speak to anyone for a week and be perfectly content with that.

I went back to school at 32 to become a graphic designer! It's never too late to discover your passion.

I tend to like making how-to posts about blogging. Not sure why. I think it's because I wish someone had had lists like these to reference and learn from when I first starting blogging.

My hair is naturally red, though has mellowed with age and now looks brown. I still think of myself as a red-head though.

My personality type is INFp, which makes me prone to daydreaming, being late to things, and taking personality tests.

I dream of being able to travel and I'd really love to visit (&/or live in) NYC, Sydney, Toronto, and Venice.

If I had a superpower, I think I'd like to be able to fly. It seems like it'd be a super useful and interesting way to get around. Plus you wouldn't have to deal with road rage or nosy commuters on the train.

{I nominate: Angie, Nikkiana, and Jeana}

Nyla awarded me with the Lovely Blog award the other day. I'm supposed to describe what I believe makes a lovely blog and then award other bloggers with it. So let's see...

What makes a lovely blog... according to me

I love it when a blogger gets real. Not super negative or super TMI (I really don't need to know about your childbirth story, thank you very much), but I do love when a blogger shares a creative project that they're working on, photos of their day, or talks honestly about a struggle they're having in life. Blogs that continuously post giveaways and Pinterest inspiration get a little boring to me (not that those things aren't fun in moderation!), and I'd rather know what makes you a special and unique snowflake!

{I nominate: Meg, Alycia, and Putdar.


  1. I'm a super introvert too. My personality type in INFJ. Of course I would have the personality that is rarest of them all!

  2. thanks jen! i'd love to visit sydney one day too :) and ireland, spain, germany ..... :)

  3. I'm an introvert also, it's much easier for me to "meet" people through blogging than in real life. And I love your definition of a lovely blog - I feel much the same way!

  4. I'm a bit of an introvert too! I like the time to think and ponder, and create. Congratulations on the blog awards! :)

    1. Me too! When I'm around too much activity and people, I tend to get cranky and moody. Not helpful for being creative!

  5. I love that you posts how-tos about blogging! I'm a relatively new blogger and i wish I have someone to really ask help from from blog design to writer's block. It was great knowing random things abt you! :)


  6. i'm an introvert as well! i'm such a homebody and don't need to go out every Friday like everyone else. i also love travel and i wish i could fly too! haha - then i could fly to London for free! ;)

  7. Thanks for the award, Jen. I have a scheduled post to share it on my blog :)

  8. Thank you for the award, sweet friend! Admittedly, I am terrible about following a "timeline" with my posts, so bear with me while I put something together! :)

    Thanks again for the shout-out...and congratulations on growing your blog and "meeting" new readers!
