When was the last time I did a blog tag? Way too long ago, right?
Well, today that’s going to change, because Diamond (@I Have 12% of a Plan) invited me to do the “Know Your Buddy Tag” with her. She was nominated by Evin and Maggie over on their blogs and she chose me to be her buddy. Thanks, Diamond!
Before I get started, I want to remind you all to check out her blogs too. They’re in different categories from my style of blog, but insanely cool. Diamond’s so talented at writing her stuffie stories and lifestyle posts. She’s a very wonderful human being and friend.
Alright, and now unto the tag! The gist of this is simply that we’re both given a list of the same questions to answer. Either we’ll answer questions about our buddy or see how our opinions on random subjects differ.
- Tag the original creators of this tag – Tallblondetales and Proxywords – and tag the original posts from each of their blogs. If you do, you’ll be eligible for the roundup post and grand ‘Know Your Buddy’ tag winner! If not, you can still take part in the tag you just won’t be a contender for the overall winner.
- Thank your buddy and the bloggers who nominated you, share the badge and rules in your post. (Thanks Evin and Maggie;)
- Pick a blogger with whom you’d like to do this tag with, answer the questions together, and share each other’s answers on both the blogs.
- Nominate 10 new Bloggers and keep spreading the love.
- Notify the bloggers (tell them you nominated them) by commenting on one of their posts.
(I’ll leave the last three rules to Diamond, as she’s been the one tagged here.)
Q: What is your favorite blog post of mine and why?
A: Seriously, I love them all and that’s too many to choose from. But here’s my recent favourites from you: “(another) Conglomeration of Recent Purchases + Shein Haul” & “Productive Autumn Day in the Life”.
Q: What would you like to be known for- your name or your blog name?
A: Good question. Honestly, I’m a pretty private person and – outside of my family and friends, of course – I’d rather be known for my blog name. Like, I’d rather be known for what I choose to write and share with the world openly, if that makes sense??
Q: What is the weirdest comment you’ve ever gotten about your blog?
A: Can’t say I’ve had too many weird ones yet. Though, months ago I had one that was complaining that my post had a “nervousness” over it and that it ruined the point I was trying to get across… the post was literally just a YouTube video I shared?? So that was just a little weird…
Q: Do you think cereal is soup? Why or why not?
A: Definitely not. Search up the definition. It says “a liquid dish, typically savoury and made by boiling meat, fish, or vegetables etc. in stock or water”. I think we can all agree that does not describe cereal, right?
Q: If you had a controller that has the power to rewind or fast-forward, which one would you press on WordPress?
A: I think rewind. Like, I don’t mean to rewind too far back, just a little. Because I do actually miss the previous WP editor and the snowfall filter they used to have at Christmas time. Anyone remember that??
Q: If you two were to be buddy characters in a movie, which characters would you play?
A: I love this. I was thinking, maybe Natasha Romanoff and Yelena Belova?
I think Diamond is very like Natasha in a lot of ways, personality-wise. And I think I’m a little similar to Yelena sometimes, plus I’m younger. The fact they have that sister bond is relatable to Diamond and me too, because I feel like we’ve grown quite close over the last 2 years? One thing that doesn’t apply though, is definitely the conflict at the beginning of their reunion, haha.
Q: What is the most boring part of posting blog posts for you? Or what part of posting a blog are you laziest about doing?
A: It’s grammar editing. I’m not really lazy about it, but it is pretty boring and stressful.
Q: If you could transform into any animal, what would it be and why?
A: How about an owl? They’re one of my favourite animals and I’m already a “night owl”. Plus I’d love to be able to sleep all day and then fly all night. Oh, and I’m not forgetting the night vision!
Q: If your blog had a superpower/magical element, what would it be?
A: How about when you read it out loud, the writing comes to life? I’m thinking of my story/fictional posts here obviously, otherwise that could be weird… yeah, I’d only apply this power to my fictional writing posts, for sure. But it’s also a power one has to be careful about.
Q: What reminds you of me?
A: Oh my! Marvel movies, Sabrina Carpenter and Taylor Swift, the colour rose gold, diamond stones, Lilo and Stitch, dachshunds, Christmas, teddies, galaxies, Princess Rapunzel… should I go on?
Q: If you were given the power to exchange blogs for a day, which thing will change or adapt first?
A: To have Diamond’s blog, one thing I’d have to cultivate very fast would be her ability to write amazing lifestyle posts. She’s very good at it.
Well, that’s all for now. These were my answers to the questions, now don’t forget to head over to Diamond’s blog to read her’s. Thanks for reading and I’ll see you again with more writing soon.
