As a blogger, I may be compensated in some way (either pay, product, or experience) for sharing the post below All opinions are my own. ~Heidi
When I’m asked to offer advice to new bloggers, my favorite thing to say is BE YOURSELF! So many bloggers are hiding behind their blog, trying to portray an image of themselves that isn’t who they really are. This seems to work for awhile; but, often, they end up “getting found out” and the results are never pretty! (FYI: I see this in other areas as well – businesses, etc.)
Anyway, I’ve been thinking about this for awhile now and I thought it might be fun to encourage people to share THREE THINGS about themselves – their REAL SELVES. So, because I’d like to set a good example, I’m starting THREE THINGS THURSDAY. On Thursdays, I’ll share three things about me. You might get the basics, or you might learn something new that you didn’t know about me before. Sometimes I’ll share secrets, or pet peeves. I hope you’ll stop back often and get to know what’s really in Heidi’s Head (or on Heidi’s Heart).
Let’s get this party started . . .
#1 – I once suffered from amnesia. (I need to blog about that sometime. I was trying to distance myself from it, but the longer it goes, the more I realize that it’s very much a part of who I am.)
#2 – I started my blog (many years and servers ago) to write about our homeschooling journey. Over the years, it’s evolved into so much more. (Someday I’ll share my thoughts on the “current state of affairs” in the homeschool community.) Nowadays, I find myself mostly blogging about my love of my family, Disney, books, and more . . . (What do YOU think I blog about the most?)
#3 – I was an only child for almost 15 years (before I became the oldest sister to two younger brothers). In personality tests, I exhibit more of the characteristics of an only child than of an oldest child. It’s funny, but we see this played out in our home quite often – my oldest child is more strict with her siblings that the only-child mother tends to be. Sometimes we wonder if the roles are screwed up in our family! It seems to work though! (Where do you fit in the birth order?)
Would you like to share THREE THINGS ABOUT YOU?
Let me know if you share on your blog. I’m happy to set up a linky if you want to participate!
