That’s How SHE Blogs

BlissDom Canada

I am heading to Toronto in October for Blissdom Canada and I can’t wait!! I am so excited to finally meet my online bloggy friends and take in the whole blogging conference experience. It’s going to be my very first one!

I am taking part in the “get to know who’s going” quiz that I found on The Yummy Mummy Club.

If you are going to Blissdom Canada too, then join in! Here’s what to do:

a) Cut and paste the quiz onto your blog.

b) Delete my answers (after carefully studying and committing each to memory. What?).

c) Answer the questions (feel free to embellish and totally make stuff up. I do it all the time).

d) Tweet a few of the bloggers you’d love to get to know better and invite them to play along.

e) In the comment section below, leave a link to your blog where you’ve answered the quiz questions.

Here’s my answers…

1. Did you attend Blogher10?

No, unfortunately I couldn’t go. I found out that I had won a ticket for the conference, but I couldn’t afford the airfare and hotel so I had to pass on the opportunity 🙁

2. Are you attending BlissdomCanada this fall?

YES! I bought my early bird ticket, and my flight and hotel are booked. Just need to pack my bags now!

3.When are you at your blogging best a.m. or p.m.?

Definitely the a.m. I like to get up really early and get my emails and posts done right away so I can have the rest of the day off.

4.How many blogs do you have? (Include the links)

Just the one! https://www.simplystacie.net/

5.  What technical skill would you like to learn to improve your blog?

I would love to learn more about SEO and WordPress plugins. Oh and html…I need help!

6.Do you prefer the sound of silence or does action abound while you blog?

I prefer to work in quiet, but I can tune out the noise around me.

7.Do you include the names of your family in your blog?

Yes, I do.

8.Do you post pictures or videos of your children?

Not videos, but I have posted some pictures of my kids in the past.

9.What’s the grossest thing you’ve spilled on your keyboard?

I am forever spilling my coffee on my keyboard. Its amazing this thing still works.

10.Ever posted something you wrote while intoxicated?

No, I rarely drink and I doubt I would be able to blog if I did. I am a cheap drunk and am wasted after one drink LOL.

11.Do you go back and edit old posts just because you can?

Not unless there’s a mistake made or some glaring spelling error that I notice.

12.Have you ever suspected somebody took something you wrote and pawned it off as their own?

Not that I know of!

13.Does your spouse read your blog? What do they say about it?

I always talk to John about my blog and he knows everything that is going on. I love to bounce ideas off of him. He does read it from time to time, but not daily. He’s always passing my business card out to people at his work though!

14.What’s something cool/positive/unexpected for you, that has resulted directly from blogging?

The best thing has been meeting a fabulous group of women who I consider my friends- Cindi, Lynette, Kelly and many others! I wouldn’t have met them without my blog!

15.Link to a post (or a few) which demonstrate your writing style:

I do lots of reviews and giveaways:

I also do posts to help other bloggers:

16.Name a blog(s) that makes you exclaim, “Damn! I wish I’d written that!”

I read tonnes of blogs daily. These are a few of my favourites:

  • Kelly’s Lucky You
  • My Wee View
  • Little Yayas
  • Review Retreat
  • Blogging with Amy
  • That Tech Chick
  • To Be Thode
  • Mom Spark
