Originally hosted by Melissa from i swim for oceans, Smash & Kt took her original inspiration, and made it their own, expanding it to more than just books. Let’s get personal (but respectfully so) and learn more about one another! Each week, a different question will be posted along with a place to link up your posts and visit other people’s responses.This meme is definitely meant to bring out conversation and meet new people. So, Let's Talk! We'd love to hear any ideas you have for questions. Submit them Here.
Before we get into this week's question, I want to announce the winners of the Let's Talk question call out contest from last month:
The winner of the Box of the ARCs is Shirley From Creative Deeds! & The winner of the Book Depository Book (up to $15) is Na S.
This week's question:
Does your family approve of blogging and reading so much? How do you compromise when they object? (Thank you Maryam/Books Glorious Books)
Yes and no. My mom is super supportive and loves that I have found something for ME as being a stay at home mother did get rather lonely at times before I found something I could do to interact with other ADULTS. She's also joined in the fun and reads a lot things along with me, so it's fun to have someone to share reading with. In fact, my hubby joined as well in his own way, with audiobooks on his drive. My poor dad is left in confusion when the three of us have debates over characters or book events, etc. It's rather amusing.
However, me being on the computer all the time does bother the hubby. He likes me to watch the TV with him, so it feels like I'm directly spending time with him, even though I can't stand TV. But I've gotten really good at using my subconscious to pay attention to his shows while I'm on my laptop so that when he laughs or makes a comment, I have a general idea of what is going on, so I can "fake" it. Lol. I will say that he has gotten much better at not griping at me for computer time since I started with Entangled, as he realizes that I'm gonna have to be on the computer. That being said I don't think he will ever understand my panics when I'm pressed for time to get a review done. I realize my "deadlines" are self-imposed, but they are important to me. He just looks at it like it isn't a job, and doesn't pay me, so don't worry about it. While that is true, I like having things planned out and sticking to my schedule. Also, blogging is what led me to working for Entangled, so in the long run you could really say that blogging did wind up "paying" me. ;)
