I want to play the game!
So Serenity Now is hosting a Dishing It party - and for some reason - I REALLY want to play! So here goes:
How long have you been blogging?
I've been blogging since 2009, and in the past year and change, I started two additional blogs (Rumer & Company & Nutmeg's) - so now I have three to keep up with - I'm not sure how I thought I would have the time!!
Why did you start blogging?
I was laid off from my interior design job, pregnant, and I guess needed "someone" to talk to. Plus, I wanted to start a diary for the baby about the pregnancy, etc. but have never been able to stick to writing in it - regardless of how pretty the cover was!
And then after the baby was born, realized that I didn't like that EVERYTHING in my life ended up on the baby blog. (I want my husband to order the book of the blog for Mother's Day and didn't want ALL of the interior design stuff clogging up the beautiful pictures of my baby) So I broke off - and created the Rumer and Company blog. Easy cheesey. Then - when sewing began to take over my life and I was "talked" into selling the cutesy outfits - I made another blog devoted just to that.
Tell me about your blog's title. Why did you choose it?
The original title was Rumers All Around - somehow trying to play on our last name and that we were adding Rumers... Changed it a couple months ago to One Little Rumer - just seemed more appropriate since this blog is all about William. I really wanted Rumer Has It - but alas - it was unavailable. Guess there are more Rumers running around then I thought!
My interior design related blog is called Rumer and Company. I briefly toyed with opening my open design business and that was what we called it. We thought it was ironic because the "company" part was my ever expanding belly!
The last blog is Nutmeg's. My favorite uncle Jimmy called me Nutmeg when I was little before he died - so it has a very special place.
What do you blog about?
I try to keep all three blogs very separate - which is why I made them in the first place! One Little Rumer - is all about our family and especially pepito. Rumer and Company - Interior Design, Home Improvements, and crafty projects. Nutmeg's - an outlet for sewing cute clothes for little ones.
What is your favorite thing about blogging?
My favorite thing about blogging is definitely just feeling like I'm connected to the outside world in some small way. Especially not doing interior design anymore (as a job) - I felt like there was a huge hole where that used to be. Talking to clients and making things pretty, etc. It's been nice to get my creative thoughts out of my head and hopefully into someone else's!
If you had to choose one famous person to become your blog's next devoted reader, who would you pick?
Hmmm... I have absolutely no idea! I would be flattered if any of the awesome blog writers themselves decided to read my blog - which I suppose - would be any of you reading right now!! Enjoy!!
What's the funniest comment you've ever received on a blog post?
I don't think I've ever received a funny comment - shoot - guess I'm missing out on that one. Note to self - be funnier. ;)
Thanks for indulging me! Back to the regularly scheduled pepito posting soon I promise!
