Since I’m not able to attend BlogHer conference, I’m doing this just for fun. (And I’m pressed for time, so I’m not tagging anybody. Feel tagged, if you like.)

1. When did you start blogging and why? Or Talk about your blog. What can I learn about you in under 5 minutes?

I’m not good at “under five minutes”, but I’ll try. I started my blog in August 2005, but didn’t post more than twice until February 2006. I like the chance to write regularly about the things close to my heart. This includes making music, self-improvement, parenting and whatever else comes to my mind.

2. How do you use blogging to build friendships?

I’d like to use it that way, but it didn’t happen yet. Once I went to a blog reading in my neighborhoos, but I was too tired and too shy to talk to anybody. I guess, I’ll have to work on that. I’m reading a lot of blogs, and try to comment.

3. Who do you read every day, rain or shine?

Mary Tsao, Christine Kane, die Kaltmamsell, Kluges und Scheiß, Chris, Jory DesJardins.

4. How would you describe your writing style?

Strange, clumsy, personal. A little handicapped by the fact that English is not my native language. But my German blog is strange, clumsy and personal too. (Oh, and I’m using too many parentheses.)

5. How do you feel about meeting bloggers in real life? Are you nervous? Will you have great expectations? What do you hope to take away from the BlogHer experience?

I’d love to go to BlogHer. I really wish, I’ll be able to attend BlogHer 07. Of course everybody will be nice, witty, and intelligent. I’d hope to find people who don’t think blogging is weird.

6. So soon we’re going to meet each other at BlogHer. Important question. How do you party?

If I would be there, I’d drink and talk too much. If there’s the right music, I dance, if asked, I sing.

7. What is your favorite thing that you wrote? What got a strong reaction from readers? Links please?

My favorite things that I wrote are: inner parents and inner children, real musicians, and my funniest to date about buying a bra. I rarely get comments, but my series on dieting was read extensively.

  1. Ya know.. I believe commenting on blogs you like is one of the most important things to do.

    I hope you do make it to BlogHer ’07.

  3. Stopping over from the Blogme thingy that Mocha got going. I interviewed myself also and I won’t be going to Blogher either. Not enough money, couldn’t pay me enough to get on a plane, and the slave drivers at work probably wouldn’t let me have time off for good behavior anyway. 🙂

  4. Don’t sell yourself short, your English and writing style is pretty good. Just start commenting on the pages you visit, keep track of them and soon you will make some blog friends.

  7. I kept thinking your son was turning 5. Sorry to be so dense. Part of it is that here you have to be 5 to start Kindergarten.

    “you told me on our way to kindergarten this morning that means that you’re now much bigger and can do everything better than before. I hope you won’t be disappointed on this.” These sentences nearly sum up the experience of motherhood. It also shows just how smart your son is.

    For a laugh, check out Mimi Smartypants (http://smartypants.diaryland.com/): her daughter will be 4 in a month and is also into astronauts. I’ll say no more.

  8. How nice!!! I really enjoyed reading that. I was just as stubborn when I was that age. I would argue with my mother and always insist I was right (we have it on cassette). That whole age-birthday arguement reminded me of it.

  9. No, De, you’re definitely not dense. There has been the line “my almost your year old” in my profile. And then school is organized different in Germany. There is no preschool with that name. Children go to kindergarten at age 3 (or sometimes 4), and when they turn 6 or seven they start going to elementary school. The last year of kindergarten sometimes has special classes and that’s called – preschool. It took me a while to get the American system too.

    Sabrina, I was really relieved when my smart books on parenting told me that most of what my son is doing is considered natural preschooler behavior. That doesn’t make it easier to deal with, though.

  10. what a lovely post. and what a good mum. it’s amazing, isn’t it…all of it, over and over.
