featured blogger friday v9

Friday, October 31, 2008

happy halloween!! excuse me while i turn up the volume on my monster mash recording- i'm having a serious chair dancing party over here.

this weeks featured blogger is the ALMIGHTY jenn. i mean seriously can this blogger get any cooler, between writing two blogs, doing her guidespot articles and planning the 20 something blogger convention that's happening this summer in boston this is one busy blogger. AND she does it all with a smile.

thanks so much for taking the time to fill out the survey jenn - as always, you rock, i heart you.

Who are you and what is your blog?
I'm Jenn from free and flawed and must love geek

Where are you typing from?
The Windy City

How long have you been blogging and what platform do you use?
Hmm..I think 6ish years or so. It all started on LiveJournal. I've been using Wordpress for the last two years. I have a Blogger account only so I can comment on those blogs that require it. Jerks :P

Sum up your piece of the internet in one sentence.
I'm bottling up the crazy in my life by putting it all on the Internet.

Are you an anonymous blogger or do you scream who you are from the rooftop?
I'm somewhere in the middle I think. I don't go out of my way to hide my identity, but I don't hide either.

Do your readers know what you look like?
I think most of them do. I'm including a picture so people don't confuse me for my stick-figure alter-ego. It was taken at my birthday dinner with some of my favorite bloggers.


If you could become famous from blogging like dooce would you want to?
I think yes. I don't know what it's like to be Dooce so I can't really say if I wouldn't like it. I'd use my powers for good...promise!

So you just drank a bottle of wine alone and you're sitting at your computer, who are the three bloggers that you email or google talk with?
HA! Dan Mega, Jamie and Jessica (Everyday Adventures...) I laughed because I had a wee bit too much wine on Monday and called my mom and Dan. Twas awesome.

How many blogs are in your google reader?
190. And I just recently cleaned it out a bit. Sweet mother!

If you had $1000 to spend and could only buy one item, what would you buy?
Cupcakes for all 190 bloggers. What? Technically that is one item, it's just multiples of that one item. The bloggers won't argue with me.

What's your favorite thing to do after 10pm?
Sleep! Lately it's been happening before 10 p.m. sadly. I'm so old.

Top three favorite movies from your childhood.
The Little Mermaid, Beetlejuice and Oliver & Company

Name something random that I could find if I was snooping through your purse?
An emergency supply of toilet paper.

Link to a funny you tube video you like.
Mac Beautiful
. I'm singing along with her!

Wanna share a secret with me, I promise I won't tell… <-- that's a lie, but tell me something anyways.
Dan Mega is my manfriend. I think I want a T-shirt that says that....you know, like the Jesus is my homeboy shirts?

If you could trade places with one blogger for one day who would it be and why?
Oh that's so a tie. I've been thinking about this question since the first interview you did. Angela from Ang-Smiles because she works in a crime lab or Katie from Dr. Katie Goes to Med School because, well, she's going to med school. I'm tired of living through these lovely ladies. Time to be them!

Who's your blog crush?
Kyla Bea - how adorable is she?!

Parting words of wisdom?
This is a lesson I had to learn the hard way: You don't make friends with salad.

  15. I think everything typed was actually very reasonable. However, think on this,
    suppose you added a little content? I ain't saying your information is not solid., but what if you added a headline that grabbed people's attention?

    I mean "featured blogger friday v9" is kinda plain. You ought to look at Yahoo's front page and see how they create post headlines to grab viewers to click. You might add a related video or a pic or two to grab people excited about what you've written.
    Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
