Friend Making Monday: Blogger to Blogger


If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here at: so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!

Blogger to Blogger
  1. Does your blog have one overwhelming theme? Not really just one... I talk a lot about weight loss, but I changed to a not 100% weight loss blog when I realized that I don't always want to talk about losing weight. This blog is supposed to have a more well-rounded ME theme. 
  2. How did you come up with the theme(s) for your blog? Was it intentional? Yes... My first blog on here ( was all about weight loss. When I realized that a lot of the time I was talking about my life and not just weight loss, I decided to make a new blog so that I wasn't false advertising by saying it was a weight loss blog when it's really not. 
  3. Share something cool that has happened in your life as a result of blogging. My blog is tiny. I don't really have a lot of readers and I don't post enough for anything amazingly cool to happen, but I was contacted by a company to do a review and giveaway of some digital scrapbooking software. That was awesome! 
  4. How much time to do spend reading blogs everyday? I read a lot of blogs and I LOVE reading blogs. I probably spend a good two hours or more a day reading blogs. I'm always looking for more to read so if you have any that you love, let me know! 
  5. Do you blog on the weekends? Not really. I need to because I want to get in the habit of writing every single day, but sometimes I don't even read blogs over the weekend. 
  6. Do you keep track of your stats?  Do they matter to you? The only stats I keep track of are my number of followers and my comments. I don't get many of either, but oh well... Haha. 
  7. How do you decide how much to share about your personal life? I've been blogging for a long time... about 12 years now. Sometimes I feel like I over-share in an entry, but I do share quite a bit of personal information. *shrugs* I just share whatever I feel comfortable with sharing. 
  8. Do you aspire to be a writer, or did blogging happen for some other reason? I actually do aspire to be a writer. That's not why I keep my blog though. I keep my blog because I like to look back at what I was doing several years ago and see how I have changed. I also like meeting new people and I'm a much more outgoing person via the internet than I am in person. I've "met" a ton of cool people via blogging sites. 
  9. As a blogger, do you think it’s more important to write for yourself, or for your readers? A little of both. I mostly blog for myself... to keep myself accountable. And like I said previously, I'd like to get into the habit of writing every day, but I really don't want to become one of those bloggers that writes about nothing just to get an entry in. I'd rather blog when I actually have something to say... So if I don't write every single day, that's why... I do enjoy getting comments and having readers, but like I said before, it's not mandatory to my blogging. I will still blog whenever I feel like it! :) 
  10. What kind of plans do you have for the future of your blog? Well, in the long run, I'd like to be a popular blogger. I would like to be a blogger that a bunch of people read and get inspiration from. I guess that means I should probably get in high gear with my weight loss... if I want to inspire others. I don't know. I feel like by motivating others it will help keep me motivated as well... if that makes sense...


  1. New follower! Looking forward to reading more!

  2. Hey Crystal, I'm stopping by from FMM. I can relate a lot to what you said about being able to be different online to how you are in day to day life. I look forward to reading more :)


I was getting a lot of spam comments, so I had to turn off anonymous user comments. Sorry! I love reading your comments though!
