Sunday Social - My First one

I've been seeing this Sunday Social, on blogs that I read, but I never had time to do the question. I usually don't blog on the weekends, so by the time Monday rolls around I've already started to recap my weekend, and Sunday Social goes out the window. But not today! I figured I would make an effort and do this, because it's a great get to know you sort of questions.

1. What is the name of your blog? How long have you been blogging?
Foxy's Domestic Side - I've been blogging since we found out I was pregnant back in early 2010, but that's a private family blog. I decided to start Foxy's Domestic Side when I finally joined the pinterest world and thought, well I do DIY projects, why not put it out there. 

2. Why do you blog?
I blog because I really love it. I started our family blog and loved keeping it up. It keeps great records of Baby Fox, and helps my family see the masses of pictures I take of him. I started Foxy's Domestic Side because I had more to say. I do a lot of projects and felt that my family doesn't want to see my projects, outfits and random things I have to say. I love having an outlet for the little bit of creative side I have.

3. What is the first blog you ever followed?
First blog I discovered and continually kept going back to was Audrey at Putting me Together
She has a fashion blog with a series of how to build a remixable wardrobe, made me really start to think about how I put my clothes together and how to think when I buy them.

4. What is your favorite post you wrote in 2012?
I think my favorite post was about my half marathon. I didn't think I could ever run that far, ever! I am not a runner and will probably never do it again, but it meant something. The support I got from my family and now it's something I can cross off the bucket list.

5. What are your blogging goals for 2013?
Blogging goals for 2013? Hmm.....good question.  I would have to say that I want to try and have a few more meaningful posts, I am not a writter, which is why I went into enginnering in the first place, everything is scientic and not touchy, feely stuff. So I hope to let people see the real me. And to get 50 followers! I'm almost halfway there!

6. Top 3 favorite blogs to follow?

But the first blog that I followed publicly was Tiffany from The Coffeehouse - she's hilarious, and I love her dog Sherman and his antics.

One of the other first blogs I started to follow was Yi-Chia at Always Maylee. Maylee is "beautiful" in Manderin, how perfect is that? She's a fashion blogger, with bits of life sprinkled in, but she's awesome, and I love seeing what outfits she's being wearing, I want her whole closet, seriously!

I love Shay @ Red Lipstick and Melodies and and her Best Friend Amy @ The Dirt Life. They met through blogging, they were featured together on the same blog. They click on each other and the rest is history. Shay is funny and always posts funny videos, and Amy has hiked both the Appalacian Trail and the Pacfic Crest Trail, that's almost a year of being in the wilderness people. Here stories will almost make you feel like you are right there hiking, when in reality you're cozy in your bed. I'm going to to count them as one, as they often like to talk about the same things, like when they went dumpster diving together, one of Shay's versions, Amy's Version. I'll let their blogs do the rest of the talking, what are you waiting for, go check them out!

So that's a little about me and my Foxy's Domestic Side
