Let's Get to Know Each Other Blogger Tag!


This may sound a tad silly, but I have always wanted to be tagged in a blogger tag. Weird, yes. But I love the idea of bloggers asking each other thoughtful questions, answering honestly, and sharing new questions with another set of bloggers and keeping the chain going! It's a great way to get to know each other, find new blogs to read and bloggers to know, AND support small bloggers! Win-win-win!

And guess what: just as I was wishing I could tag myself to do a blogger tag (is that lame? Guys, I really, really wanted to do one), I was tagged by the lovely Amber over at My Life in Limbo after she was tagged by another blogger. So thank you Amber for tagging me and making my blogging dreams come true! Okay, I'm excited, so let's get started! Here's how it works:


The Rules:

1. Answer the 11 questions that your nominator has asked you.
2. Nominate 11 other bloggers (with under 200 followers)
3. Ask your nominees 11 questions.
4. Let them know that you have nominated them!
Alright, so I may be tagging people who have OVER 200 followers, but that's only because I like these bloggers and want to hear their answers to my fantastically original (NOT) questions. And also, it's totally okay if the bloggers that I tag don't do this tag. I'd love it if you did, but if it's not your thing, I get it and just know that I tagged you because I like and respect you and your blog and want to get to know you better. That's all. No pressure! 😊 (But seriously, if you do the tag let me know and then tag other bloggers and keep the it going!)

The bloggers I'm tagging are...

Kimberly: @KayyThevv
Kala: @Kala_Mari3
Siobhan: @fuller_siobhan
Marylou: @itsrylou
Leah Rachel: @reading_while
Aleksandra: @OlaGrab
Nicky: @knickknack99
Emma: @Emma111996
Alex: @inafieldofbooks

Now, it's time for the 11 questions that Amber came up with!

1. Where is your favorite place to go to when you’re feeling down or disconnected?
If I'm feeling depressed or disconnected, I find that actually getting out and being around people helps. It's almost reassuring to remind yourself that you're not alone in the world and life is still going on. It's weird how you can ground yourself just by being around people you're not going to even talk to!

2. Besides blogging, what is your favorite hobby?
Reading, hands down. If I could read all day, everyday, I would. If my job could be Official Reader of Books, I would have the credentials, the degree(s), and be the best in the business!

3. What have you learned about yourself while blogging?
Blogging has really encouraged me to let out my creative side. I've always has an active imagination, thinking of scary horror stories (I love all things paranormal- ghosts, demons, hauntings- FYI), but never actually writing them down. Seeing everyone on Twitter, their blogs, or even Wattpad chase their writing dreams or even just writing for fun has inspired me to actually put pen to paper (well, fingers to keyboard) and write my own stories. Am I any good? Who knows! I just love doing it and it makes me happy and that's really all that matters to me.

4. What is a favorite quote of yours?
"I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart. I am. I am. I am"- Sylvia Plath

5. What is your favorite television show?
I can't pick just one!! Don't make me choose! I absolutely love 30 Rock, Parks & Recreation, I Love Lucy, Gilmore Girls, The Simpsons, Black Mirror, and Shameless. I couldn't possibly pick an all-time favorite!

6. What is the blog post that you are most proud of? Why?
The blog post I'm most proud of is probably my post about being more open about having mental illness. I've always kept my mental health very private, one, because I felt like no one I knew really understood or could understand, and two, because I've always been embarrassed about the fact that I actually have issues with my mental health. But thanks to so many awesome mental health bloggers that I follow, I've learned to be more honest about my experiences, and that it's okay and even appreciated when other people share their stories (It even helps spread awareness to break the mental health stigma). Just admitting that I suffer from OCD, depression, and anxiety (and more), was like a weight was taken off of my shoulders and I loved how understanding and encouraging people were online once I shared my post. It just warmed my heart and reminded me that I'm not alone and that other people DO know what I go through or at least can sympathize. And it's slowly giving me the courage to talk about my issues more with my family and friends. (Who knew a blog post could do so much??)

7. What are you grateful for?
My family, no question. They've always supported me, no matter what. Sometimes they drive me crazy, and I'm sure I drive them crazy, too, but I'm honestly so lucky to have them and know that they're there for me, always.

8. Why did you start blogging?
I actually started this blog as a way to keep track and share my experiences checking things off of my bucket list. But it slowly morphed into so many different directions, like talking about books and sharing my stories about travel and my life experiences. I decided to reinvent my blog and talk about whatever weird things I wanted to and not to limit myself to just one topic. And so That Weird Girl Life was born! 

9. What is your guilty pleasure?
I love watching YouTube. I love it! I could spend hours watching the channels I've subscribed to, and I could watch hours of random videos I look up on weird subjects, like old girl and boy band interviews from the late 90's/early 2000's, video footage of (supposed) real ghosts, and documentaries/interviews about/with serial killers. My interests are obviously quite varied and sophisticated (and slightly creepy, to be honest).

10. What is one new thing you’ve started doing lately?
I've started getting into doing crafty things. And by getting into, I mean buying cross-stitch kits but I haven't started any of them yet. All of the patterns are super easy but now I'm terrified of starting a cross-stitch kit and messing it up! It's the perfectionist in me!


11. What do you love about your life?
I already said my family, so is it okay to say my cat? Or is that super sad? I don't care, I love that furry fluff ball who sheds like it's her one job in life (it is) and cuddles with me at the most inopportune times and never when I'd like her to. She's now 13 years old and crotchety old lady cat (she even has an old lady name: Harriet!) but I still love her to bits. I'm her person and she's my cat 🐱💖


And here are my 11 questions for my tagged fellow bloggers:

1. When you were young, what did you want to be when you grew up?

2. What time of day do you do your blogging? Do you usually work in the daytime or are you a night owl?
3. If you could only eat one candy or chocolate for the rest of your life, what would it be?
4. What is your go to movie to watch when you're feeling sad or upset?
5. Has there been a book that has changed your life?
6. Which Disney movie scared you the most as a kid?
7. What is the hardest thing for you about blogging?
8. If you had to recommend one musician/band that everyone should listen to, who would it be?
9. If you could sit down and chat with any fictional character (from a book, movie. or TV) who would it be? And what would you talk about?
10. What is something that no matter what, always makes you laugh?
11. And if you had to pick: cake or pie?

Let me know if you do the tag, I'd love to read it! Let me know in the comments if you've ever been tagged to do a blogger tag!

Stay Weird,
Emily
