Getting to know you…

One of the things that I love the most about blogging is connecting with like minded people from all over the world. I find it so hard to make friends as an adult especially one that no longer goes into an office setting so it’s been great to make friends through this blog of mine.

Lately things have been shifting a bit and I’ve noticed that while my readership  continues to grow there has been a decline in comments. To be honest it does get to me sometimes. Most blog posts can take hours and I was use to the days of 30 plus comments on posts and now I sometimes  feel like it’s just me and the crickets here. I totally get it though life has just gotten busier and people simply don’t have the time to comment like they use to. I’m at fault myself. Lately all of my blog reading has been happening on my phone and it’s hard to comment via cell phone. Still it’s no excuse. The reason I love blogging is the sense of community and I need to get back in there and start building new relationships.

So, in honor of reconnecting with everyone I wanted to start doing a getting to know you feature that will help readers learn a bit more about me and help me learn about them. Since this is the first post in this series I figured it was best to start at the beginning and ask some basic and some fun questions.

1. Current Location:
2. Day Job/Career:
3. Latest Treat yo self/Or lusting after find:
4. Current monogrammed item you are itching for:
5. Coffee or Tea:
6: Last physical CD you purchase (not itunes or download):

Just cut and paste in the comment section and add your responses. :)

Here are mine:

1. Current Location: I was born and raised in NYC and now reside the outskirts aka suburbs of NYC. NY print by Sugar Paper.
2. Day Job/Career: I work as an interior decorator, blog editor of this blog and freelance writer.
3. Latest Treat yo self/Or lusting after find: I asked Santa for BlogShop and all of my Santa’s joined up to help me get the $$$ for the class. So excited to go! Currently lusting after these amazing dotted heels by Loeffler Randall.
4. Current monogrammed item you are itching for: It’s getting so cold in NY that I’m constantly using my gloves outdoors. Of course I have plain jane gloves and can’t use my phone while wearing them so I’m itching for these monogrammed stunners from C.Wonder with touch screen capability.
5. Coffee or Tea: I’m a tea girl all the way. My latest brews have been English Breakfast Tea from Harrods thanks to my youngest sister who just returned from across the pond.
6: Last physical CD you purchase (not itunes or download): I can’t believe I’m actually disclosing this, but the last physical CD I bought was Jesse McCartney’s Beautiful Soul.This was back in 2004 and I remember searching for it everywhere and finally finding a copy at Target. Whew! Don’t judge.

Now it’s your turn. If you have a free moment or two I would really like to read all of your responses. Someone must have a CD that is more embarrassing then mine.

    6: Last physical CD you purchase (not itunes or download): It has been so long for me, but my husband recently bought us the Cities Sampler 2012 CD – the local Cities 97 station does it each year along with big sponsors like Target.

      -Love Cambridge Satchel. Especially love the story behind them. My youngest sister is super cool/edgy so it’s hard to get her gifts, but I got her a CS for her birthday in hot orange with a gold monogrammed and she is obsessed with it.
      -Love Blair, but don’t read her daily and totally didn’t see the monogrammed pull over sweater. Must find this post now.
      -That is Jon’s favorite Starbucks drink.

    What a great idea! You are right to call us out for not contributing via comment, and this little survey takes me back to the days of those like 100 question chain emails that went around when we were younger… You know, back when everyone still had AOL and prettying up an email with crazy colors and fonts was acceptable!

  83. I’ve been very bad myself lately in commenting on other blogs. I think mainly because I tend to save my favourite blogs to Pocket and then read them on my mobile or Ipad whenever I have a chance. And as you say it’s not always easy commenting from mobile devices. Also if I really like the article, I tend to just quickly share the link on Facebook or Twitter.
