Day 16 - B.E.D September 2016 - #BlogOnMSI Icebreaker

Friday, September 16, 2016

BlogOnMSI is just around the corner and while I'm Blogging Every Day I thought I would join in the Ice breaker set by Zoe I'm really looking forward to this event. It will be my 4th (I think) BlogOn event and the 2nd of this year but this one has a twist and is winter themed. It's too soon for the C word

1. Share a recent photo of you (or a doodle!)

This was taken last weekend at CFF. For years I've shied away from wearing black. Sometimes it makes me feel down when I wear it but I've been embarrassing it more and more. I haven't decided what I'm wearing for Blog On yet as some people have mentioned Christmas Jumpers but I always get too warm in MSI but I have dug out some Xmas Tree earrings I might wear.  

2. Describe yourself in five words or less

In need of a Holiday

3. How long have you been blogging, and why did you start?

I've been blogging on and off since February 2008, so 8.5 years. Tomorrow's post is feminising about that first ever post so come back for that and you might be surprised. 

This is my 3rd of 4th blog but the one I've stuck with the longest and I've let this one evolve with me rather than stopping dead and starting something new. 

4. What are you hoping to get out of Blog On?
For me it's more a chance to catch up with people, put faces to names and get some quality blogger time. For me blogging isn't about brands. It's about those genuine friendships that we form over the internet and for some good quality hugs. Please hug me!

5. Name a few of your favourite blogs.

Is this a bad time to admit I've not really been reading many blogs? I tend to go through phases where I read blogs non stop but at the moment it's all about watching Vlogs. 

I tend to only read blogs is I see them pop up on my time line, but I do want to start reading them more. Especially when I'd like people to read this blog. 

6. What’s your favourite social media platform(s)… and what’s your username?

Instagram - Without a doubt. I'm @Seeingspots_ over there same as twitter. I don't get much interaction and I don't do "themes" I just post random crap and TBH it's rarely blog related but I kinda like it that way. 

I also have a second IG account for anything Slimming World related @SeeingSpots_SW I'm not on plan atm so there isn't much happening but I do try and update it and it gets a lot more interaction than my main account. 

7. Share a fact about you no-one would guess.
I'm a pretty open book, not sure if there is anything you don't already know.

8. What’s your favourite bit of tech?

My Camera, I love taking pictures. I'm not great at it but I'd be lost without it. 

9. If you won the lottery, how would you spend your winnings?
Holiday's lost of holidays! Some other more sensible things as well but see answer 2.

10. If you could host a talk show, who would be your first guest?

Hmm, this is a tough one. I don't really do celebs and don't listen to much music so I'm not sure I could answer it. Maybe a host of cats, set in a cat cafe. 

11. Share a funny (or favourite) memory from your life.
Do I get extra points for it being a BlogOn anecdote? 

At my first BlogOn a policeman put his head up my dress in a lift, his mummy wasn't very happy but it has given me and Jenny years of laughter. 

For clarification. I was wearing leggins, the policeman in question was about 3 and none of us noticed till his father dragged him out from under my dress! His mother was less than impressed with him! 

12. What is your favourite book (or film if you’re not a big reader) and why?
They are one and the same The Princess Bride. It has a little bit of everything and I need to read and watch it again soon. 

13. What picture is on your phone/tablet lock screen?

Just the default one. It has never ever crossed my mind to change it. The only time I dabbled in changing anything on my phone was back on the old Nokia's when you could get an image other than your mobile network. 

14. If you had an hour of time all to yourself, how would you spend it?

Blogging or editing. I'm trying to getting into a better routine and I really enjoy it. 

15. What’s the best bit of advice you’ve ever been given?
Blog related? Just blog for yourself. 

If you're going to Blog On make sure you say hello. I will apologise in advance, I'm terrible at putting name to faces and connecting user names. Please stick a blog card in my hand followed by a hug and please tell me your name. Also if you like selfies make me take one. I always regret not taking pictures with people so help me not to have any regrets.
