I am really excited to announce a new linkup!! I’m sure everyone has seen the Blogger Men Tell All linkup hosted by the lovely Becca at Becoming Adorrable, or linkups like it. I’ve always loved those kinds of linkups, but was never able to get my ex to play along. Now that I don’t have a blogger man anymore it was even more unlikely that I would get to participate.
As all good blogging ideas do, the idea of this linkup came to me over a bottle few glasses of wine. I was looking through blogs and feeling sorry for myself and the fact that I couldn’t participate in any of the spouse linkups. Then it hit me, why not do one with my friends. They’re basically my “emotional spouse” and know me better than anyone else. I sent a text message to my blogging buddy Jennifer and she must have been drinking too because she instantly said yes… and so The Blogger Friend Diaries became the newest blogging baby to be born from to much wine.
A week before the linkup goes live every month, Jennifer and I will post 3-5 questions for you to have your bestie answer. These could be easy questions like “how did you meet” or much more drama filled like “what’s her worst quality”. No, we’re not out to destroy your friendships, we’re just hoping to get to know you on a more.. friendly level. Obviously you’re welcome to add in your own comentary every week, but we’d really like for you to post the exact answer that your bestie gives.
You don’t have to use the same friend every month and you’re more than welcome to have more than one friend answer in the same month if you want. If you’re like me, you have more than one best friend and I’m sure that everyone will want to get in on the fun of dishing out the dirt.
Next week will be our first linkup! Here are your questions for Wednesday, May 13th!
- Give us your back story. How did you and your blogger meet?
- Share your favorite picture of the two of you.
- What keeps your friendship going?
- Describe your blogger in one word.
- Describe your friendship in a song.
Please share this post with your friends and use #BlogFriendDiaries to get the word out!! Can’t wait to read everyone’s posts!!
Before I let you go I’d like to introduce you to Melissa from The Rambling Llama! I’m really excited because her and I have been working on a special blog swap that will also be happening next week!
What kind of blogging goodness will we find on your blog?
My blog is quite literally a little bit of everything. I think the majority of the blog falls under me talking about my kids, trying to get fit, and sometimes the occasional recipe. I’m not a food blogger and most of my recipes don’t involve really great pictures. Things you won’t see: fashion tips or in depth DIY’s!
What is a random fact about you that most people wouldn’t know?
I think the most random would be that I went to three different high schools. The second was because my dad moved us out the district we were in. The third was my choice because I wanted to live with my mom. I don’t have a problem making new friends. lol.
What’s next on your to-read list?
I’m trying to figure that one out actually. I just finished the Divergent series. I don’t spend a whole lot of time reading so it takes me a long time to get finished with books, but I’m open to any suggestions!!
Who would you love to see in concert, or what was your favorite concert you’ve already been to?
I would LOVE to see Carrie Underwood. I love her and I think that would be a great concert. I think the best concert I’ve been to so far has been Pitbull and Enrique Iglesias! THAT was such a fun show! Plus I won the tickets, so bonus!
If you could pick a theme song for your life, what would it be?
Kasey from Kasey at the Bat recently asked me to describe myself in song titles. So THIS is an easy question, and I love it! Without a doubt my theme song would be “Weird Al” Yankovic: White and Nerdy.
