In this great community, many of us engage on a daily basis. We have friends, followers, and others that we follow in turn. They come from countries all over the world, often with different cultures, religions, and life experiences.
For many of those, English is not their first language, but they blog in English, to reach a wider audience.
Some bloggers are very private. They have an obscure blog name which is carried over to their email address, and tell the world nothing about their actual location or circumstances. Many hide their gender, age, and appearance. Some, myself included, put it all out there, with personal details, photos, and unashamed recounting of life experiences, opinions, and current situation. No way is the ‘correct’ way, as however blogging works for you is always going to be the best way.
I have long wanted to ask some of them more personal questions. Nothing rude or intrusive, just everyday things like “Where do you live?”, “What do you look like?”, “How old are you?”, or even “Are you a man or a woman?” Natural curiosity is often part of what makes people bloggers to start with, but I would never be so rude as to ask such things of people who obviously want to keep their blogging life separate from their real one.
It occurred to me that I should practice what I preach, so here I am, offering you the chance to ask me any question you have ever wanted to ask me.
You can ask me up to five questions in a comment on this post, and I will answer them completely truthfully, as long as that answer does not upset anyone not connected to this blog, or embarrass anyone not involved.
This is not a big deal for me of course, as most of you know pretty much everything about me.
Or maybe you don’t? 🙂
