Thanks Tess, here goes.......
1)Why did you start your Blog?
Hmm, the first Blog's I found were Cherry's, Julie's and then Nonnie. At the time I'd never really heard of Blogging or what it entailed or even how big the actual Blogging world is. A bit of naivety going on there on my part I think. Anyway , I just thought I'd give it a go - I'm so pleased I did and now I'm hooked.
2)How did you come up with your Blog name?
To be perfectly honest I have no idea. I thought of Mistletoe Moon ( which I still like) but thought it was a bit too Christmassy and Willow Moon, I kind of had a Moon thing going on as you can tell but went with Periwinkle , a cute , pretty blue flower and they are quite resilient plants too. Although I am still not 100% sure of the name!
3)Do your friends and family know about your Blog and what do they think of it?
Only Hub ( who thinks I'm mad but goes along with what makes me happy - most of the time) and one friend who is totally computer illiterate and can't even send an e-mail.
4)How do you write posts?
Most of the time I just kind of prattle on and keep changing things as I go. I get lots of ideas what to write but then forget about them. I have a Pyrex one in mind that I've been meaning to do for ages . I sometimes wish I could express things in a better way, more eloquently like Tree Fall but I suppose that's not me..
5)Have you ever had a Troll or had to delete unkind comments?
I've never had to delete a comment but I have started getting e-mails selling Viagra and asking if I would like to get more enjoyment with a Penis enlargement...... !!!!
6)Do you check your stats? Do you care how many people read your Blog- if you care how do you increase traffic?
I wouldn't even know how to check my stats. I would like to say I didn't care but deep down I suppose I do care how many people read it. I was so happy the first time I had over 10 comments-- is that a bit sad? I don't really bother about increasing traffic.
7)What kind of Blogs/ posts interest you?
Allsorts... I especially like pictures though.
8)What do you like and dislike about Blogging?
I like the fact that I've found so many like minded people and people no matter where in the world they are you can consider them as friends. People who I don't feel scared to ask for help when I need it and who I know will help me. You know who you are- Thank you.
What I dislike is that it sometimes seems to take over my life and I let it. In a morning when Baby G is napping I Blog whilst Milo plays and I know it's awful but I tend to disappear into Blog world and ignore him. I only recently realised this so I have made lists of things we can do and it is going to go into practice from this Monday when the school holidays start. I'm sorry if you think I'm being a bad mother but I am going to change this.
This is me with Milo when he was 11 mths old
Now who to tag--- Louise I'm tagging you right back. Thanks for yours and I will do it shortly and Kellie who has the cutest children and does amazing quilts.
