How long have you been blogging? Since May (I had to check, oops!)
What inspired you to start blogging? The first blog I started reading was Smitten Kitchen, and then when I got engaged I found the infamous Bee....but I think what motivated me to start blogging was Meg over at A Practical Wedding. She is so soulful and honest, I felt that I had that in me and wanted to put it out there.
What did you originally blog about and how has that evolved? I originally started blogging about Ryan and I's engagement. Really mostly wedding stuff, but I've blogged in the past about books I've read, recipes I've cooked, fun things I've done with my sisters....kind of an online diary, really, because I have a dismal memory. Lately it's been pretty much 100% wedding blogging though. I don't have a large circle of real life friends that live close, and none of them are engaged or really interested in weddings, so I get all of my wedding talk out of my system on my blog.
What different types of blogs do you stalk? I have a couple cooking blogs I follow, and oodles of wedding blogs! I follow 1 or 2 fashion blogs, and a couple just life blogs as well as a Unitarian Universalist blog.
Three of your favorite blogs? It's so hard to choose! I have so many, many favorites because there are so many talented writers out there right now, like yourself Miss Mojito! I love Sarah's perspective over on 2000DollarWedding, and I have been following Jenna at ThatWife for almost a year now. I recently started reading Accordions and Lace and I'm a big fan. Those are the big time bloggers who have no idea I exist! Among my "blog friends, I would say that Kristy at I'm Gonna Marry You Someday is a favorite, because I think her writing style is so ethereal and whimsical. I really enjoy My Spare Thoughts because she details her planning of a UK wedding. I also really enjoy Miss Pug, Chocolate Lover, and Em. I'm sorry, that's not really 3 at all, is it!
How many blogs do you think you have in your feeder? 62, but I am always on the hunt for new ones.
What impact has blogging had on you? I have found such an amazing circle of incredible women that are unfailingly supportive and honest. There are so many girls I am dying to meet in real life now. I wish we were all more centrally located so we could have a big fat meet-up, I think it would be a rocking good time. Since I don't have any friends who are getting married, these girls have turned in to true friends who are in the same place that I am. I am infinitely grateful for all of the wonderful ladies I speak of, including you Miss Mojito!
And to all of my other readers, I'm on the hunt for some future Internet Inspirations! Would you like to be featured? Drop me an email or even contact me with a blog that you think I should feature!
