This post marks my 1,000 post since I’ve started blogging. How crazy is that? Many of you have been following along since this blogging journey has started. I’m hoping that you have enjoyed reading what I’ve shared with you. I’m also hoping that some of you might have been inspired to start up your own blog! It’s great because you get to share whatever ideas you want. If you are planning on starting your own blog then make sure you are aware of how to be safe online (you can find out more information here at websafetyadvice.com). Moving on from that though, many of you are new to Erica’s Walk and I’d love to answer a few questions to help more followers get to know me a little better.
How long have you been blogging?
~I started blogging in 2010. Back then, the blogging community was only just starting to grow. You didn’t have any helpful web hosting reviews back then. It was every man (or woman) for themselves in many ways.
You had to try and figure out everything by yourself, as there wasn’t really anyone that you could turn to for advice. Unlike now, you have lots of people to help you. And if I was to give anyone any tips now, I would tell you that you should always look at the reviews before you decide on the best website hosting server for your needs. I wish I had known some of the things that I know now back then as it would’ve made the start of my blogging journey a whole lot easier.
Why did you start blogging?
~At the time I was a stay at home mom and was going a little crazy at home. I was a young mother and needed an outlet.
Do you like blue cheese?
~I absolutely hate blue cheese!
Do you own a gun?
~No, but only because I don’t have a proper safe to keep one in the house with my children.
What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
~ Why Rocky Road of course.
What do you think of hot dogs?
~When I think about hot dogs I think of my son Luke. You can never go wrong when feeding him if you have a hot dog.
What do you prefer to drink in the morning?
I always want water when I first wake up. However, I love a good cup of coffee.
Do you do push-ups?
~I try to do push-ups but I’m not very good at them.
~This blog post seems kinda boring.
Where would you like to go?
~Anywhere with The Husband that is quiet with a good cup of coffee.
Do you own slippers?
~Yes, I never go without them when at home. (I hate socks)
What is your greatest strength and weakness?
~I feel like these two questions go together because I feel my greatest strength is my greatest weakness. I’m too kind and giving. I trust too easily and want to help everyone.
What are your favorite colors?
~Green and pink
Do you feel children should be sheltered from unhappiness?
~I would never want my children to be unhappy, however, that is a part of life and I feel if I would shelter them from experiencing it that would only cause more issues when they are older.
Where would you love to live?
~Rhode Island. I have no idea why that has just always been a dream of mine. And I know nothing about Rhode Island. (I know I’m crazy)
What’s your favorite sports team?
~Texas A&M Aggies
What do you do when you’re mad? How do you handle it?
~When I’m mad I like to be alone. I like to sit in the dark and cool off. Think about the situation and figure out if I over reacted before I do any more damage.
What is the last picture you took on your phone?
