I really like the name of this Blog - A Complete Waste of Make Up. Some of my days are exactly like that. For instance today - Today my lil ones went to their daycare after weeks and weeks of being at home. And I thought it was going to be extra hard so I enlisted BK to help and drew strength from 'Look Good, Feel Good' mantra. But as it turns out - both the girls did great (Bless their hearts!) and I got to work (after weeks and weeks of staycation) and lots of folks are either working from home or too busy to notice. What a waste of make up!
And I came across ACWofMu because I started following Ramblings of a Suburban Mom recently.
So here's answering the Qs from ACWofMu (Neely, do forgive me for acronymizing your lovely blog!)
Let's get Acquainted:
1. What is the name of your blog? How long have you been blogging?
indigoandviolet is our name and feeling (I say our because I am channeling people and my family)
I started blogging several times but I abandoned ship each time. I had a blog in my name on Yahoo's 360 degrees (I think). Then I had another one on blogspot called 'Just Saying' because you know I am always rolling my eyes and just saying! Then I had a few others between the years 2005-2007. So this is a fresh and invested start for me. I began here on Dec 27th and went live on Jan 4th, 2013. A very late aged bloomer.
2. Why do you blog?
Well, I have a confession. I found my mom's journal long time ago which she started in the 1980s and she had so many things in there. It was a daily personal diary. I snuck a peek (a good long one - Yes, I am evil that way! disclaimer: I only read it because my belief then was Moms CANNOT have secrets from their kids! Hahahaha *tears* - yeah right!) and couldn't imagine that moms had personal feelings than the one they showed. I didn't even know that it was allowed. I didn't think my mom thought things were stupid or worse - that people were stupid. So when I saw some of her entries - I went to her and confronted her. She shrugged me off (esp when I asked her why she called me stupid!). And I asked her to leave the journals to me when she no longer wanted it.
In the same spirit, I am leaving all this here for my girls. Maybe someday they will know that I really cleaned their poop and washed their butts and cooked their food and it was not some myth.
Also it's fun.
3. What is the first blog you ever followed?
I have no clue. I read so many... but never followed any diligently - I wish I had. I am only better off for it.
4. What is your favorite post you wrote in 2012?
Well, I like my pregnancy rant. (Boy, can I rant!)
5. What are your blogging goals for 2013?
I hope I reach a whole lot of people, touch some in some way (except physical) and be heard. And I want to have fun doing it. I also want to inspire some of my friends who are amazing writers or thinkers and are funny and batsh!t crazy to start blogging.
6. Top 3 favorite blogs to follow?
I am not going to stop at 3 - Sorry.
I really like The Bloggess - she is hilarious.
I like Praline.
I follow Love. Light, Laughter and Chocolate.
I started following Ramblings of a Suburban Mom and A Complete Waste of Make up.
I know there are more but I am not listing all of it. I will eventually be mentioning some wonderful ladies that the world should just allow center-stage!
Now you go.
If you do not blog, leave me a comment either ways and tell me what you would call your blog, if you ever ever ever do.
