What the hell is Fireball?
Y'all, I had never heard of this til I entered the blog world. Maybe it's because I don't frequent bars and didn't go away to college, but it is cinnamon flavored whiskey. That sounds terrible! Probably because I prefer drinks that taste like kool-aid. But bloggers love the stuff! So maybe I will too?
What is a Type B personality?
SO many bloggers call themselves Type A. I was reading Kerry's post and had to wonder - what are the traits of a Type B personality? So, I went to the most reliable information source in all the land - wikipedia - and learned this:
" The theory describes a Type A individual as ambitious, rigidly organized, highly status conscious, can be sensitive, truthful, impatient, always try to help others, take on more than they can handle, want other people to get to the point, proactive, and obsessed with time management. People with Type A personalities are often high-achieving "workaholics" who multi-task, push themselves with deadlines, and hate both delays and ambivalence.
People with Type B personality by definition generally live at a lower stress level and typically work steadily, enjoying achievement but not becoming stressed when they are not achieved. When faced with competition, they do not mind losing and either enjoy the game or back down. They may be creative and enjoy exploring ideas and concepts. They are often reflective, thinking about the outer and inner worlds."
It makes sense why so many bloggers describe themselves as being Type A. I don't know many people who aren't stressed out when they don't achieve, but if this is you, please teach me your calm ways.
Who decided that pumpkin and chocolate go together?
I guess you all did. Let's agree to disagree with this one as I am definitely in the minority. I just can't wrap my brain around pumpkin spice M&Ms.
Why so many rules?
I like linkups. I think a lot of us like linkups - a blog topic I don't have to think much about and the possibility of new readers? Sign me up! But then there are rules with linkups like you need to follow all the hosts (there are 10 of them) in multiple ways (there are at least five options) and it's too much clicking! All I want to do is type my post and crop my own image in the linky tool and try to make new friends! I get that it's a way to come together and market your blog but do you want me to sign up to follow you just so your numbers increase? I mean maybe, I get that, I guess, but don't you want participation in your linkup too? There were a few different opinions about this on twitter yesterday and I would love to hear yours. And don't even get me started on giveaways... I have to really want something or it has to be ridiculously easy for me to enter one. Also, I am lazy and I enjoy going against the grain.
How do you get your nails so perfect?
My friend Joey tried to answer this the other day (perhaps via email as I can't find a blog post) and said that she washes her hands with really hot water and then gets rid of the excess polish by... picking. My word, not hers. Is that your secret? Because my nails are always a mess.
Can you provide more insight into any of these questions? What are some questions the internet has made you ask?
