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!

Your little guy is definetly cute enough to deserve his own blog. Good for you! Nice to meet you!

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

What a little cutie you have. :) Props to you for keeping up with 3 blogs. That's amazing! I like all of the blog titles though...I can see how it would be hard to stick with just one. :) Thanks so much for coming over and linking up...I hope you're having fun "mingling." :)

Meghan said...

Thanks y'all!! He's a doll baby...(and knows it! god help me later...)

I've been having fun stepping into the other blogs that link up in the spare 3 minutes here and there! What a great idea for a party!!

jenjen said...

What a cute little one you have! I am amazed that you can keep up three blogs. I have two and my personal one is so neglected -- it's sad!

So fun to meet you!

That little William, what a DOLL!! Nice to meet you! Over from the party!

Richella said...

I'm visiting from Amanda's party, and it's very nice to meet you!

Your little fellow is absolutely adorable. I know a thing or two about cute little boys, if I do say so myself. I'm the mom of three redheaded boys (the oldest of whom is named William, by the way!) . . . but, alas, mine are all big boys now. Still, I can come here and admire the photos of your little guy! Enjoy him!

How in the world do you keep up with three blogs? I can barely keep up with one! What a little cutie pie you have! So glad to "meet" you and thanks for stopping by to see me too!

We have something in common. I make kids clothes too. Isn't it fun?

Southerner said...

He is so cute! You have me spinning with the three blogs! and all with a little guy. So good to meet you!

Erin said...

Stopping in from the blog party. Wow, 3 blogs and a baby! You're a busy gal! Nice to meet you!

Meghan said...

Y'all are great! So glad you dropped by - I hope you enjoyed it! And, honestly, I don't have the slightest idea how I keep up with everything...I'm probably neglecting something huge in my life but as long as it's not pepito - I'm sure it wasn't important anyhow! ha!!

My famous subscriber would *have to be* Chris Thile. Or like the superly duperly rich and insightful publisher who would instantly sign me up for a quadrillion dollar book deal so I could single-handedly pay off China.

But that's my answer. You can't have it.

(Does that count as a funny comment?)

Laurel @ Ducks in a Row said...

Stopping by for the party - I think all your blogs sound like ones I would read!

Meghan said...

Colleen - definitely counts as a funny answer! Thankyou!!
