This Could Be Fun: Doing the15 Day Getting To Know the Blogger Challenge

Here we go. This could be fun!

I’ve never done a challenge before, I think this could be fun!  This is from the blog “A Little Unhinged”, a site chock full of information about blogging.  For people like me who are still learning the ropes, this is fabulous!  If you want to participate, follow the information down below.

I’m still not sure how I’m going to do it, but this is my post to get started:

Introduction to the Challenge and a little bit about myself:

I started my blog in June when things in my life were spinning out of control and I just needed a place to write my feelings down.  I didn’t seriously start blogging regularly until the end of July, when inspiration struck and I started having what I can only characterize as “Idea Diarrhea”.  I decided to try to brush off the stuff that was not so great in my life and try to focus on the stuff that was more funny, with maybe a little heartfelt post in there here and there.  I made a promise to myself that I would try to post something every day of the week, because I have had difficulty staying with anything.  I did, and although I may not be the most popular blogger on the planet, as the months have progressed I’ve built myself a nice little following.

My real name is Sarah.  I am 38 years old and live in the Midwest with my husband, Evil Genius (aka Travis), whom I have been married to for thirteen superstitious years.   I have two children:  my son The Professor (Ezra), who is seven, and my daughter Princess Whatever We Are Calling Her That Day (Brynn), who is four.  I started out as a music teacher, but through many unfortunate incidents and a realization that it wasn’t what I was meant to be, I’ve followed many other paths since but still haven’t found quite the niche I’m looking for.  Hence the name of the blog, The Sadder But Wiser Girl.  Currently I’m an unemployed wanna be writer and relatively unknown blogger who hopes to one day be paid to do what I do right now.  Through this blog I have found a whole world of wonderful people to talk to every day from all different walks of life.  I’ve me many moms who blog like me, but lots of other interesting people too!

I don’t really consider myself a Mommy blogger, I try to write about all different kinds of things.  But it all comes back to my family, which is what is most important to me.  I do have Attention Deficit Disorder, which has been good and bad for me.  Good for the creativity, bad for concentration!  I also have an Anxiety Disorder, which together with the ADD causes a whole lot o fun in my life.  I’m also a geek and a recovering vegetarian who enjoys long walks, caffeine, and wine.

That’s all I’m sharing for today.  I hope you’ll share too!  Copy below to get going if you want to participate.

  1. I’m glad you’re doing the challenge, it’s fun to learn more about the people you read. And I love A Little Unhinged, she’s one of my favorite bloggers and such a nice person. I don’t know where I’d be without her help.

  2. Ok. This is weird. I’m going through the same situation too. Former teacher, lost my passion for it, want to write, need to work. Let’s be friends. Oh, you followed my fb page today. (Lucy) 😉 I’m her on Twitter too. Nice to meet you!
