My Q&A Answers
What advice would you give to a new blogger?
Just Do It! Seriously, I’m not trying to be an ad for Nike or anything, but if the catchphrase fits…
There’s nothing holding you back but yourself. Don’t get too caught up in the “Do’s and Don’ts” of blogging, just get your content out there. If you love it, someone else will too.
That said, you should also get involved in the community. There are a ton of other people out there just waiting to help you. Join groups on social media, ask for feedback and engagement.
Could you share, why do you start your blog?
I really like to research. If I could have stayed in school as a full time career, that would have been my path. I like to find things that are just a little bit out of the ordinary, back them up with facts, and make them available to anyone who is interested.
If you have only one single island ticket, would you go alone or will you get someone close to you on board? If yes, who is he?
I would take my kiddo. Cause you know, he’s awesome, and if I didn’t take him, I’d just be in a constant state of worry about him. Also, for being only four, he shows a lot of friggin ingenuity. He’d have cable TV up and running to watch Paw Patrol in no time.
How do you imagine the future? Describe.
Hmm… The future in general? I guess I see it as unfortunately dystopian if things don’t change. On a human level, I think we need to learn to set aside our egos and work together on education, the global economy, and the environment if we want to sustain the lifestyle most of us are used to.
My future in particular, I imagine a lot of hard work. With hopefully a nice reward/retirement at the end. I hope to see more travel, and time with my family in there as well.
If you have an opportunity where would you live – in the past or in the future?
Living in the south of France has always been a dream of mine.
Do you think constructive criticism makes you a better person? Why?
Absolutely. Sometimes it can be hard to hear, I won’t lie. But in the end, it always helps shape and define who you are. If you ignore constructive criticism, then you’re failing to grow. You don’t always have to take the advice you’re given, but you should always take a stance about it.
Can you describe yourself with GIF? What will be?
Coffee or tea? Why?
Coffee. It’s always coffee. I love tea, especially in the evenings, but it just doesn’t pack the punch I need to keep my day going. Coffee is an integral part of my day, I honestly can’t function without it.
Who is your favorite actor/actress?
Probably Johnny Depp. He’s just been in so many roles from my favorite authors and directors. I’m a huge Hunter S. Thompson fan, so I love Fear and Loathing and the Rum Diaries. And I absolutely adore Tim Burton’s films.
If you can eat only 1 meal by the end of your life, what will be?
Chicken Fried Steak, Mashed Potatoes with White Gravy, A Biscuit, Fried Okra, and Ice Cream with Apple Pie for dessert.
