In celebration of reaching almost 500 followers on WordPress, I wanted to open up the floor for a little informal Q & A.
When I started this blog 1,5 years ago I really had no idea what kind of blogger I wanted to be. I thought I wanted to be a lifestyle/personal blogger but over the past year I have learned how much I truly value my privacy and not having to put every little thing out there. Not to mention, my life is really not that interesting! I’ve even stopped maintaining a personal Facebook because I just don’t see the point anymore, although I’m more than happy to creep on others! It also seems to me that personal bloggers tend to buy a lot of stuff to constantly show off and that’s really not going to work for me since my blog is basically an anti-blind-consumerism forum.
So here we are, and I’m very happy to be right here. I’ve really been enjoying the WordPress community lately and discovering a lot of insightful and well written blogs. As fun and frivolous as Instagram is, the blogging sphere is where I feel most at home. Over the past year, I have moved away from the more personal posts to cover issues that trouble and inspire me. It’s been a wonderful outlet for me and I feel so blessed for having such intelligent and compassionate readers. 90% of the comments I receive end up making my day because I get to feel heard and understood by people all over the world. What a gift writing has been and continue to be for me.
But it’s perfectly natural to feel curious about the person behind the words so consider this your chance if you have wanted to ask me a question, or for me to clarify anything I have written in the past. Let’s get to know each other a little better!
The closest to a selfie I can do, wearing a light brown fringe clip-on. I’m debating going back to my natural hair color but after 6 years as a blonde, that is proving really, really hard. Who knew blonde was so addicting? Oh, everyone? Ok, then.
I’ve been feeling A LOT better lately, after I wrote my post about depression. I’m coming around to the idea that happiness is not a constant; it is a lesson that has to be learned over and over. It’s ok to slip every now and then. It doesn’t make you a failure – it makes you a person in touch with your emotions.
Where did honeythatsok come from? It is actually a line from The Strokes that I adapted as my online alias as early as 2005. But 10 years later, it is ever so fitting because I tend to be pretty easy-going with people. I’m always dealing with my own shit so I’m very accepting of people dealing with theirs. We’re all usually doing the best we can, and if someone has time to intentionally hurt you, they are usually not worthy of your time at all.
I’ve been really into photography lately. I think everyone in Hawaii turns into amateur photographers but I’ve spent more time editing pictures than I have been writing this month.
I’m also experimenting with prints, so if anyone is interested in purchasing one please contact me.
If you have any other questions you would like to ask me, feel free to do so in the comments. I will get back to you asap, either in the comments or in a brand new post.
Thank you all for being part of this journey with me. I hope you know how much it means to me!
