I present to you my chat with Allison! She is a Christian, homeschooler, photographer, reader, crafter, and blogger. She also enjoys, drawing, baking, writing, and… well, lots of things! (Paraphrased from site)
(Allison’s responses are in black, mine are grey)
1. Can you make an acronym out of your first name?
A Lamb Leaps Into Some Orange Nets. Does that work?
2. What’s the first word you see? _AKE
CAKE. (But I don’t even like cake that much…)
3. Claim to fame?
Um… my elbows are double jointed? XD I can bend them the opposite way you normally do so it kind of looks like I’m turning them inside out. O.o Okay, okay. My real claim to fame (theoretically) would be my art, I guess?
4. What color matches your thoughts?
PURPLE. PURPLE IS GREAT. But hmm, it probably doesn’t match my thoughts. Maybe soft green? I have no idea, it just seems reflective, and I like to think about things, so…?
5. If you could jump in a pool full of something what would it be?
Ooh, it would be really fun to jump in a pool of water beads or Orbeez or whatever those things are called. They feel so goooood. XD
6. What’s the fun-est thing you never want to do again?
Hmm. I don’t REALLY know what this means but I shall take a guess. Probably a big art project. I love drawing almost anything once, but I hate copying the same thing again if it’s super complicated. I prefer to make something that no one has seen before.
7. What dreams do you want to come true?
One of my biggest dreams is to be able to have a successful shop for my art or other things I’ve made. (Huh, I seem to be talking about art a lot. XD) I absolutely LOVE making… most anything, and what makes it even better is if it can make someone else happy too.
8. What do you want to do that you’ve never done?
Yikes, this is hard. Ooh, maybe “see heaven.” I can’t even imagine how much better it will be than what I can imagine…
9. How’d you come up with your blog name?
I was trying to think of something that would encompass all of my interests plus any new ones I’d discover after I started blogging, and I decided, what’s broader than “life”? XD It’s not really my favorite, but I don’t want to change it now, and hey, at least it works.
10. Do you share your blog with family and friends?
Yep! 😊 (Wow, that was short.)
11. What inspires your posts?
Often it’s my photos. I like looking back through the recent photos I’ve taken to see if there’s something there to post about. I also like posting about art (again XD) or similar crafty things I’ve been doing lately.
Hmm, good question. It depends on how many ads that would require, because I hate it when ads pop up everywhere while you’re trying to read a blog – it’s so distracting and annoying. -_- I don’t think
12. If you could, would you turn your blog into a business? Have you?
I won’t actively pursue making my blog professional anytime soon, but if it was offered to me I’d probably take it.
13. Do you write humorous and serious post on your blog?
Yep! Mostly humorous, though, heh heh. I like to write in a conversational style as if I was talking instead of writing, and in real life I like being funny (or at least trying to…). I do occasionally do a serious post, though, for instance, my Thoughts on Beauty post. It feels good to talk about something on a deeper level once in a while.
14. How long can you say “ahhh”?
24 seconds! 😝 I was whisper-shouting, though, if that makes a difference (probably not). Fun fact: once I held my breath for over a minute. 😲 That’s a lot for me, at least.
15. Pick up the book closest to you. Go to chapter 5, 4th sentence, 3 word in that line? Now put Giggling in front of it.
“Giggling didn’t” Okay… that was weird. XD [Tell me if I did this wrong.] It was a math book, but you can’t really tell.
16. Think about writing a letter to an individual Welches Fruit snack (not the company)… how would you open up?
My dearest Fruit Snack, I just wanted to drop you a note to say you are so sweet…
17. Favorite color?
I have loved purple since pretty much forever. ❤ I also love mint green and blue – pretty much any cool color.
18. Favorite blogging quote?
I have no idea. O.o There are blogging quotes??
19. Advice for new bloggers?
Don’t be discouraged if your blog doesn’t get a ton of followers overnight. Focus on the people, not the stats. Find other bloggers who love the same things you do and comment (sincerely) on their posts. And finally, make posts you’d love to read!
20. Finally, one question you’d like to ask me?
AHH THIS IS HARD. Okay, what is one thing you don’t like about yourself and one thing you do?
I do like my humor and genuineness
I don’t like having a natural tendency to be too sensitive
Did you enjoy this? Tell me your thoughts!
