If you’re visiting from the blog party or if you just stopped by for a chat, allow me to warmly welcome you into my tiny corner of the blogging world. This is supposed to be a post in which you, the reader, become more intimately acquainted with me, the authoress.
First query: “Tell us about yourself!”
About me? I could speak well on almost any other subject besides myself. But this is a post about… me… so I will attempt to skirt around a full-on interrogation by saying that I am an… ahem… introvert. *gasp*
Yes, it’s true. I’m an introvert. And after many years of thinking this was a bad thing, I am finally embracing the fact and, I might say, enjoying the perks as well. If you now have a picture in your mind’s eye of me as a shy, backward individual who hides behind her own shadow, let me cast some light upon the truth of the meaning.
An introvert is merely a person who is energized by being alone, whereas extroverts are energized by being with others. They reflect more, while extroverts do more. They desire the inward things. Introversion has nothing to do with a shy, timid, or otherwise “flawed” character as most people-until enlightened- are led to believe.
The perk? Well, that would be the fact that most of the world’s gifted individuals are, that’s right- introverts. (But I’m not proud, of course. *wink*)
Second query: “Tell us about your blog!”
I started my blog after spending nearly a year perusing other blogs and learning from those who write consistently edifying content. I wanted to be able to blog with “intention,” and not just have a blog for vanity’s sake. You might say I learned at the feet of those who went before me. I write about character and spiritual development and you’ll also see my photography posted throughout. I put my all into my content and work hard to reveal my heart’s intended message.
A few more questions and answers:
Who is your favorite blogger? My favorite blogger is A. Ann at Resolved to Worship. She is such an inspiration to all who read her blog. She considers her blog to be- in her words- a “spiritually candid journal.” In addition to being a mother of seven, she is a photographer. I enjoy her writing as well as her beautiful photos.
What are your favorite animals? This is a fun question since I just happen to love animals. Dogs are, of course, wonderful companions (I have one), but since the question was in plural form and I have the opportunity to mention more than one species, I would have to say that one of my favorite animals are guinea pigs. (They’re not really those wild, crazed-looking creatures you see in the pet stores; they are quite a family pet with some handling.)
What are your favorite types of reading material? My choice reading material would be historical fiction- meaning those actually written in the 19th century; the authors being those such as E. P. Roe, the Bronte sisters, and Jane Austen.
Are you a hopeless romantic? I suppose I might be considered that, but as far as that may go, let me say that I don’t daily expect my prince charming to come riding up to my front door with the intention of carrying me off into the sunset. I am a very passionate, deeply feeling person, but I’m also reasonably grounded in logic.
That’s all! Thanks for stopping by to learn a bit more about this evasive authoress. I’m glad you took the time. I would be delighted to have you again… anytime you feel like dropping in for a little heart-to-heart chat.
