Blogging to Know You

This week's Getting to Know You is about blogging!

When did you begin your first blog and what inspired you to do so?
I started this blog in November, after reading Fussy's idea for NaBloPoMo.
I enjoy writing but didn't often take the time to do personal writing.

Do you have more than one blog? Why? How are they different?
Nope, just the one : )

How would you characterize your blog?
Creative

Political
Informational
Community-oriented
Or something else?
Hmm, a little bit crafty, a little bit mama-blog, a little bit mental health.

To paraphrase Oprah, what is "one thing you know for sure" about blogging?
I know that I've 'met' some pretty cool people blogging!
Is it important to you to get feedback in terms of comments or pings? Why or why not?
I love getting comments, I won't lie. It is nice to feel that someone out there is listening. Even without comments blogging is so valuable. It is something I make time for, for myself. It gives me a chance to write things I'm thinking about, when I might not pull out pen and paper to do so.
What 3 blogs would you recommend to our readers and why?
Hmm, three. This is going to be tough!
One of my favorite's is Krista's blog, The Silent K. She moves and inspires me with every post.
The Living Classroom is the journal of an amazing K-1 teacher. It is wonderful to read about her school and her students.
Shiso Mama is the blog of a wonderful, creative mama. She creates beautiful collages. Check it out! She shares photos and stories of her adorable and fashionable son, Otis.

i'll guiltily admit that while i still don't like doing these myself, i love reading when other people do these memes. thanks for the love. i always have to remind myself to comment on other people's blogs since i can't seem to escape my introverted tendencies, especially since i love comments just as much as the next person!
