My goal today is to do three things:
1. Welcome you to my blog.
2. Show you how irresistible my blog is.
3. Make you come back time and time and time again.
You see, dear reader, today is my SITS day. As part of the SITS community, one blogger is featured almost every day and today is finally my day. That means potentially 10,000 women could be visiting my site today! I have the server administrators at GoDaddy on standby just in case I have traffic overload.
If you are a regular or returning reader, I just need you to read, be entertained, and leave a comment so all my new visitors will know how fabulous I am (or at least make it sound that way).
If you are a NEW visitor, let’s get started.
My name is Fadra. It’s pronounced FAY-dra. I get lots of questions about my name so I might as well direct you first to my post on that: A Crazy Name Like Fadra. Be prepared for some really bad music.
Here’s a quick tour of my blog. I post usually 4-5 times a week. Sometimes it’s personal stuff. Sometimes it’s ridiculous stuff. And sometimes it’s me giving away fabulous stuff. I also like to do videos from time to time. They’re usually part of a post but just for you guys, I created my very own YouTube gallery. Feel free to check it out if there’s nothing on TV and you want to watch me over and over and over again.
I’ve got a cute kid and a quirky sense of humor. That’s about all I’ve got so maybe you’ll find that irresistible.
I think I’ve got the internet pretty well covered. If you want to subscribe to my blog, I’ve got both RSS feeds and email subscriptions available for you at one low price. I also have a Facebook page where I post silly pictures and videos and often ask questions like you’ll read below. And I like Twitter. A lot. If you have to choose, I’d prefer you join me on Twitter (@allthingsfadra). I excel at tweeting and I still get a chance to try and make you come back.
Now for the Q&A…
Since SITS decided to stop doing the interviews, I thought it only fair to interview myself so you can get to know me better. Instead of coming up with my own questions, I asked my biggest
fans readers to ask me their most ridiculous questions. So here we go…
If you were soap on a rope whose bathtub would you be in? (submitted by @SheSuggests)
For the sake of my marriage, I will have to say my husband, of course! It definitely would not be Ewan McGregor or Elijah Wood. Nope, definitely not them. Definitely my husband.
If you had to choose between hopping on a pogo stick or doing the moonwalk to get around for the rest of your life, which would you choose? (submitted by @gfunkified)
This is an easy choice for me. I would totally moonwalk. I think I’d get a headache after a while on the pogo stick and I don’t really have great balance anyway. Now I just need someone to teach me how to moonwalk.
How come you’re so fab? (submitted by @simplycinthia)
I’d like to say I was born that way but I’m pretty sure it’s from knowing people like Cinthia (because she’s fab too).
Boxers or briefs? (submitted by @dashingly)
I don’t think women look good in boxers or briefs. I usually go for bikini (but absolutely never a thong).
If your aura was going to be made into a nail polish, what would the color be called? (submitted by @thehhhousewife)
Warm October Nights. Coincidentally, if I made a softcore porn movie, it would be called the same thing.
What is the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever worn? (submitted by @freshproducenow)
The year was 1987. I was the little sister tagging along on a road trip to see The Grateful Dead and Bob Dylan in concert. I bought a tie-dye hippie dress and wore it with pride. However, once you are away from stoned hippies, the dress just looks ridiculous (although it is still hanging in my closet).
If you had to have one toe removed…which would you chose and why? (submitted by @mommythisnthat)
Believe me when I say, every single toe is important. I once broke the toe beside my pinkie toe and was amazed at how difficult it was to walk. That said, I’d nix my baby toe. I could hide the stump easily in summer sandals. I’d have to give up flip-flops though.
If you had a choice to either go back in time to a specific moment or go to the future. Which would you choose? Why? (submitted by @mommythisnthat)
I carry no regrets so I wouldn’t go back to change anything. However, I would probably go back to tell my boss what I really think of him since he ended up being my ex-boss anyway.
If you were a box of cereal what would it be and why? (submitted by @boringwineguy)
When I was growing up, there was a cereal we loved called Freakies. I’m sure you can make the connection.
If you could only eat one pork product for the rest of your life what would it be? (submitted by @boringwineguy)
Ham. I think I’m the only person in the world that doesn’t go ga ga for bacon. But I’ll take ham any day of the week.
If you had 80 years to live would you go from 0-80 or if you had the chance would you go 0-40 then the next 40 back to 0? (submitted by @boringwineguy)
Since I’ve already reached 40 and I know that pretty much everything on your body starts breaking after that, I’d start going backwards. Who wouldn’t want to be young and wise? I would still like to skip the awkward adolescent years though.
I’m certain you’re hooked by now. If not, I invite you to join me on Sundays where I host a free writing meme called Stream of Consciousness Sunday. Or visit me on my other blog, Social Dialect, where I blog about, well, blogging. And if you’re looking for something to leave in the comments, why not answer one of my ridiculous questions too? Then I won’t feel as awkward.
