Blogging has always seemed like a very self-centered activity to me, and somewhat weird because of it. In person I love to really get to know people, hear their stories, watch them laugh, and connect with them on a human level. With a blog I can’t really do that. I wish I could meet every single one of my blog followers over a drink or coffee (or your beverage of choice), have a conversation about life or love or dogs, and just listen.
Now, I know meeting every one of you in person is impossible, but I would like to know a little about you.
Would you be so kind as to indulge me by leaving a comment below and answering the following questions:
1. What is your name? (first names only are fine)
2. Where do you live?
3. Do you have a pet? Kind of animal? Name?
4. What is your favorite color?
5. What one food and drink could you never live without?
6. What is your dream job?
UPDATE 7PM: I realized it isn’t fair for everyone to answer the questions but I somehow get out of it, so here are mine: Jamie. Seattle; Uptown neighborhood, Dog- Fergie- Mystery Mutt- mostly ridgeback, color- pale pink, food- shrimp ceviche, drink- raspberry lambic, dream job- get paid to travel around the world with Fergie, testing dog-friendly cafes, and write about and photograph them. Oh- and the one that I currently have. 🙂
If you have a website or blog (of any kind) be sure to leave it in your comment so people can go check it out.
I would be positively delighted to read about people I don’t know, it would make my whole week!
It’s easy to leave a comment and takes just seconds (no having to confirm anything or type in a secret code), and anyone can do it- you don’t need to have a website or a blog. Just click at the bottom of this post right above the blue comments box where it says ‘add a comment’, and speak to me.
Need some more incentive to tell me about yourself? Sometime before Thanksgiving I will randomly select a commenter from this post who will receive a beautiful pack of holiday 2008 greeting cards from me- cover design below. Whoopee! Please be sure to leave your email address so I can contact you to find out where to send the cards. (fyi: I will not share, sell or do anything else with email addresses left with comments, I promise)
Thank you so much and I can’t wait to read the replies!
