Back to the Beginning

Sometimes it’s nice to remember your roots.  Go back to the beginning.  Reinforce your motivation.  Remember why you started this to begin with anyway.  That’s the focus of this week’s Sunday Social!

Sunday Social

How did you come up with your blog name?
I knew that the blog would be random bits and pieces as they floated across my brain.  I also went to Virginia Tech, and am therefore a Hokie.  Voila.

What is your favorite thing about blogging?
That it is a spot that I can vent in.  It’s a place I can brag in.  It’s a way to alleviate stress.  It’s also a way to remember.  Remember the fun.  Remember the events.  Remember the emotion involved.  Of course, that means that I need to remember to blog about many of these things, and lately I tend to be doing link parties, but that’s okay.

What is one thing you have discovered because of blogging and now can’t live without?
Excellent question.  I really don’t know.  I enjoy blogging, I enjoy reading the blogs of others, but I don’t know that I have discovered anything new.  Just enjoyed what I have in a different ways.

Facebook or Twitter? and why?
Facebook.  Because it’s enough of a time-suck as it is.  I can’t afford another, greater time-suck in my life.  So I just stay away from Twitter altogether. I actually have an account–have since 2006.  But I never use it.  Plus, I have to admit, ever since the Library of Congress announced that they considered tweets to be published material, therefore they would be archiving all tweets posted on Twitter, I have abstained.  I just have a hard time participating in something that considers the likes Kourtney Kardashian or Ashton Kutcher worthy of being alongside Shakespeare and JK Rowling in the preservation of our history.

If one celeb read your blog who would you want it to be?
One?  Just one?  Um, let’s see.  Tori Spelling?  I just feel like she’s down to earth despite the money she had growing up, has real world problems, and would be cool to hang with.  Or Lauren Graham–gotta support the Virginia girl, plus she seems like she’d be a hoot.

What is something you want people to know about your blog?
That it’s not about home improvement, unless you count how I’m blogging about the fact I finally cleaned my house.  It’s not about crafting, unless you see the photo of the blanket I made.  It’s not about sponsored posts, because I wouldn’t have a clue how to even do that.  It doesn’t have ads, because I don’t do this for revenue purposes.  It doesn’t have anything other than me.  And that’s just fine.
