Amanda from Serenity Now for Amanda is having a party to give bloggers a chance to mingle and to get to know one another a little better. I’ve made a lot of new blog friends from some of Amanda’s other parties and I hope that today will bring about some new friendships, too.
Amanda asked some suggested questions to get the blog talk and visiting going.
~How long have you been blogging?
I started blogging in August of 2007. It’s hard to believe that I’ve enjoyed this hobby for almost three years.
~Why did you start blogging?
I was fascinated with the first blog that I read. I couldn’t stop reading and clicking and before I knew it hours had passed. I enjoy so many hobbies that I thought it would be fun to share my life with others.
~Tell me about your blog’s title. Why did you choose it?
It took me two months to think of a title. I wanted to blog during that time period, but I couldn’t come up with a thing. One day “Sweet Pea” popped into my head and I knew that that would be the name of my blog. My initials before I got married were PEA and now they are PEAS. So I really am a Sweet PEA and it has nothing to do with a vegetable. My grandfather was a PEA, too. I always liked that we had the same initials.
~What do you blog about?
Crafting, decorating, gardening, cooking, house projects, travel, reading, and tennis are my usual topics.
~What is your favorite thing about blogging?
I get so much inspiration for decorating and crafting ideas from other bloggers. I love to copy what I see and give it my own unique twist.
~If you had to choose one famous person to become your blog’s next devoted reader, who would you pick?
Mmmm….. This is a tough one. Perhaps Martha Stewart. Maybe we would become best buds and she’d invite me to Skylands for a weekend.
~What’s the funniest comment you’ve ever received on a blog post?
Nothing pops into my mind right now. I have never received an ugly comment and that makes me feel good. I’m sure if I were more vocal with some of my opinions, I’d get some ugly ones.
I am looking forward to “hopping” around to each party participant. I’ll be at school all day and then have a meeting in the evening, so I’ll be a little late visiting, but I promise that I will visit.
If you are new to my blog or you read it and never comment, I’d like to invite you to take a minute to say hello.
Be sure to visit Amanda today and have fun partying!
