April 13th Questions:
1. How long have you been blogging? Who is your target audience? How often, if at all, do you think about quitting or taking an extended break? What do you do when you start feeling burned out with blogging? I’ve been blogging a little over a year. My target audience? I suppose it’s fellow mommies and anyone else who might be interested in the goings on of my life. Basically it’s the eight of you who may or may not be reading right now. I very occasionally feel burnt out from blogging, usually because I’ve started to “care too much.” But typically I’ll just take a day or two off or try a new approach, even if it’s only in my mind. I’ve only been blogging a year so it really hasn’t been an issue yet and at the heart of it, I’m really just doing this for me.
2. What’s on your mind now? ::laughs:: What isn’t on my mind? Yesterday was Easter so we just saw family, ate good food, MM got to participate in Easter Egg hunts at both families’ which was fun and he was adorable. We had a great time and I’m berating myself for being a terrible mommy blogger and not taking any pictures. And you know… the job hunt. Still no word yet from Dream Company but it’s still earlyish, who knows. Dan applied to a bunch of jobs this morning and we took some long walks, did laundry, etc. Productive yet relaxing. Now the boys are both napping and I’m squeezing in some bloggy time – yay!
3. If you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the body or the mind of a 30-year old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you want? Explain your answer, please. I think I’d take the brain of a 30 year old. I think that accepting the physical aging process is a good thing to do – those wrinkles and what have you are a sign of where you’ve been, the gray hairs – they are worth every minute. But the memory loss that comes with age? It would be nice to skip that, to stay sharp and really be able to remember every little second – or you know, as much as possible. It’s not like my memory is so hot now to begin with.
4. What would you constitute a “perfect” evening for you? Perfect would mean that MM ate his entire dinner without complaint, didn’t kick and scream his way to bed time and that we enjoyed every minute of the day together. Dinner would have come out perfectly and / or been prepared by someone else. We’d have a great movie or favorite tv show to look forward to or maybe play a board game or get together with friends. I’d go to bed tired but content and actually fall asleep when my head hit the pillow.
