20 Things You Might Not Know About Me | Blacksburg Belle Blog Tag

Here we go!

Question 1: How tall are you?


Question 2: Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what?

I am a search engine ninja. I attribue this to playing CyberSurfari when I was a kid. It was an online scavenger where clues were scattered across the interwebs and you had to hunt them down. Won a free t-shirt every year! 🙂

Question 3: What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?

The WP comment system. Why do I have to subscribe for every single comment? I just want to know if someone replies directly to me.

Question 4: What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?


Question 5: What’s your favorite song?

This question is impossible!

Let’s see… for today I’m going to go with All of the Stars by Ed Sheeran.

{Even though it makes me cry.}

Question 6: What’s your favorite Etsy shop that isn’t yours?

Right now I’m in love with MarstonBindery. They make stunning cases for eReaders.

And since I won a Kindle Fire from CreativeLive I’m putting this Shakespeare case on my Christmas list.

I adore physical books, but am trying this eReader thing out since I won it in a giveaway. So far I’m finding that it’s great for reading blogs on Bloglovin, and a nice way to read eBooks like April Bowle’s Marketing for Creatives.

But they’ll never replace paper. They don’t smell as good. 😉

Question 7: What’s your favorite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?

Reading. Or strolling through the bookshelves at Dickson Street Bookshop.

Question 8: What’s your favorite junk food?

I’ve had a real hankerin’ for some Oreos lately.

Question 9: Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?

I had Neopets in the ’90s. Anyone else remember those? Just checked and mine are still there.

Question 10: What are your number one favorite nonfiction and fiction books?

Ooooo… another hard one.

For fiction I’d have to choose Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson.

And nonfiction would be The Element by Sir Ken Robinson.

Question 11: What’s your favorite beauty product?

Rimmel Nail Polish. They put Lycra in it, which makes it very resilient, and the brushes are wide which makes for easier application.

Question 12: When were you last embarrassed? What happened?

I was at another show’s cast party {the kinds of parties theatre folks throw after a play opens} and dropped a whole plate of baked beans on the floor. #Mortified

Question 13: If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Tea! It’s so versatile. Definitely a good black tea blend that I could make hot or iced depending on my mood and the temperature. 🙂


Question 14: What’s your favorite movie?

Peter Pan! No… Annie. The Wizard of Oz. Wait… The Lord of the Rings! Anne of Green Gables… I can’t handle this question. Stopping before I overload and reach Total-Systems-Failure.

Question 15: What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist, prep?

Hermione Granger.

Question 16: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

Right here in NW Arkansas. In less than an hour I can be in a gorgeous state park, yet I still have access to civilization with natural food stores and quirky little local places. I love it here.

Question 17: PC or Mac?


My Home Office: Typewriter, iMac, Corkboard, Planner, Pixar Lamp.

Question 18: Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse?

While I was away at AWBU I told Nathan to relax and play video games. He also did the laundry and put new sheets on the bed. How lucky am I?

Question 19: Favorite celebrity?

John & Hank Green. {If you’ve never heard of them go watch THIS, THIS and THIS.}

Question 20: What blogger do you secretly want be best friends with?

Cara Vincens. You may remember her from this tutorial?

{Why is teleportation not a thing yet? Curse that giant ocean!}


This blog post is a part of the ’20 Things You Might Not Know About Me’ Blog Tag started by April from Blacksburg Belle. She began this blog tag experiment to build community among creatives, help us bloggers to connect more and get to know each other better. This month’s topic is all about sharing just a little too much information about yourself. If you’d like to participate or want more info, check out the beginning post right here.
