BC: What's are the name of your blogs?
Me and My Monster
OC Photo Blog
On the Rox
BC: When and why did you start blogging?
I started blogging on LiveJournal in April of 2003 (what a geek). I began blogging publicly and as part of my job in February of 2008.
BC: What has been your biggest surprise about blogging?
How personal I get. Sometimes I just can't shut myself up. I mean, I've always been an open book -- I'll pretty much answer any question you throw at me, no matter who are you -- but to be so open knowing complete strangers are reading my words? I didn't think I'd be able to do that. I didn't think others would either. But so many of us just put it all out there. It's almost absurd.
BC: Where do you go for inspiration?
Other blogs, of course. I also read actual books (none of this Kindle nonsense for me -- I adore cracking the binding of a book), and I'd be a horrible mother if I didn't add that my son also inspires me.
BC: When you have out-of-town guests, what is your "must see" place in OC?
I don't get out-of-town guests very often, but if I did, I'd take them to the smaller, laid-back spots, like Downtown Fullerton, or Sunset Beach. And then I'd make sure we got stuck in a traffic jam, so that they wouldn't have to wonder why I'm so stressed all the time.
BC: Give us the links to your three favorite posts you've ever written.
Oh, but I love them all! I suppose my favorites are the ones in which I dared to really be brutally honest.
