Well, I have been taking a few weeks break from the blogging world for a bit. Have needed to get caught up on some life stuff that I just couldn’t put off anymore. That being said, I have spent the bulk of today going through my newsfeed, trying to get caught up on a little bit of what I have missed over here at good ol’ WordPress.
I’ve had some laughs and giggles, have learned a few things, and have sympathized with a few of you, and am eager for some more of it! But the point of this post is, I came across PennyWilsonWrites and her Meet & Greet post and thought it was a brilliant idea! (And I hope she doesn’t mind I’ve linked to her post)
I’ve seen various incarnations of these types of posts around the site obviously, but something about ‘meeting and greeting’ as opposed to just ‘promote your blog HERE’/’Expand your audience’ seemed so much more appealing to me. It also made me think, I am following more than my fair share of blogs, and I have more readers than I have been able to fully keep up with, so I thought what better way to get to know you than to have my very own version of a meet and greet!
I would love to know more about you all, and I’m sure some of you might also have fun getting to know a little bit more about each other either. So I’m inviting each and every single one of you to post in the comments a link to your page, preferably to your personal favourite post, and I promise to get around to reading each and every single one of them, and invite any readers here to also do the same!
If you want to mention a little bit more about yourself and your blog, all the better! If you have any questions for me or about me, I’ll do my best to answer – where appropriate, of course.
To get the ball rolling, I’ll begin with myself.
Since you have already found your way to my blog, I assume some of you know me already. For those who don’t, I’m Mandy and it is a pleasure to meet you!
I started blogging with the sole aim in mind to get over my fear of writing for an audience – even if this isn’t the type of writing I had in mind. I’m on a journey to upgrade my life little by little, and thought maybe if others could share in that journey or if I could help people in any small way it would make the whole experience worthwhile for me. And it truly has. Along with meeting some absolutely amazing people throughout the process, and being introduced to many new worlds outside of my own because of it. I’ve lost some focus on the direction of my blog, and so my posting as of late has been all over the map, but maybe (as a commenter from my last post indicated) eclectic is just my thing!
What you absolutely NEED to know about me is:
I am a total lake girl, and love sunsets, my dog, and my boyfriend. Not necessarily in that order.
I adore the farmer’s market, and I love cupcakes and flowers. Which both so happen to be available each Wednesday at the farmer’s market!
I also have a thing for this globe I saw at …. here it comes… Wal Mart. Which I was still too cheap to buy, so I snapped a photo instead.
My favourite post is Dear Girls, which many of you have already been introduced to through previous posts, and I would be delighted to get to know you and your blog better through your favourite post also! Feel free to post away as many links to your favourite/s as you want, and tell me as much or as little as you want about yourself. It’s that easy!
