I thought it might be fun to do something a little different with my blog this summer. I’d like to conduct an informal interview and to spotlight one blog each Friday. Participants would answer five fun questions, nothing stressful because it’s summertime.

This is my way of saying thank you to all those who nominated my blog for awards and to those who continue to visit each week. Plus, I love getting to know you all better.

If you’re a regular visitor and you’re interested in participating, please comment below and email me at jaweatherholt@gmail.com. I’ll email you ten questions and you pick the five questions you would like to answer. When you email your answers to me, you can include a brief bio, a link to your blog, as well as any project you would like to spotlight. If I get a decent response, I’ll go through the list alphabetically by first name.

For those of you taking a blogging break this summer, I know many of you are, enjoy your time off! Have a safe summer.

***COMMENTS CLOSED 5/31/14 – 17 BLOGS WILL BE SPOTLIGHTED THROUGH SEPTEMBER, 2014.

    I like long walks on the beach, but only during typhoons

    I enjoy romantic nights by the wine, drinking fire

    My favorite books are 50 Shades of Magenta, Men are from Mars and Women are from New Mexico, and Of Mice and Cheese

    My goal is to star in The Real Housewives of WordPress or to become the lead singer for the Berlin Chamber Orchestra

    There you go. Next week’s post is already written!

    All seriousness aside, I look forward to getting to know some new bloggers.

    • Eric, Eric, Eric…I had to take a moment and wipe the tears from laughter away, before I responded. Does this mean you don’t want to answer my questions and be in the spotlight? I know how shy you can be…
