Helen from crispyconfessions.com nominated me for The Face Behind the Blog Tag. (Check out Helen’s blog, I love it!) So, here’s a post about me, the weirdo behind this blog.
1–Use “The face behind the blog” tag to post a bit about yourself.
2–Tag two or more blogs that you love or leave an open invitation to.
Who am I?
I hate this question because I always have a mini identity crisis. Do any of us really know who we are? So, I’ll stick to the simple stuff.
I’m a 28-year-old South African woman (soon to be 29-year-old). I love writing, obviously, and I blog about whatever enters my clutter box. However, I enjoy writing about my family and the weird things that happen in my everyday life.
The short answer to ‘who am I?’: Just another idiot on the internet.
Where am I from?
As stated, I’m South African – born and bred. I live in the notoriously underwhelming city of Bloemfontein.
If you heard my English accent, you would think I’m Scandinavian. My accent is a weird mixture between a British, American, and South African accent, and I don’t know how that happened.
What’s a perfect day?
At this point, my perfect day would be one where I could go around in public without worrying about COVID-19.
Since that’s not possible, my perfect day would be one where I eat good food and spend my time with family, friends, and my fur babies.
What do I do?
There are two answers to this question. My day job is as an academic writing consultant at the university in town.
I blog and write other stories (I have made no money in this area yet). In addition, I also take and teach karate classes in the evenings.
Why do I blog?
I love writing and I enjoy having an outlet for my weirdness – it seemed like a perfect fit. Also, I’ve been blogging for so long (about 10 years) that it feels weird to not blog.
I wish I had a better answer to this question (insert nervous laugh here).
I nominate the bloggers who regularly read my blog. If you’d like to take part in the tag, please let me know – I’d love to get to know you better.
I’d love to know where my readers are from. Leave me a comment stating where in the world you’re reading this.
Also, if you like my blog, please subscribe (I lost my subs because of a technical issue).
