Bloggers Wednesday: Becca

I found Becca’s blog somehow and read about her and her hubby Caleb eloping. Then I somehow found Koree’s Blog (Koree is Caleb‘s sister and therefore Becca’s sister in law!! Woot!), Koree will make another appearance in a few weeks :). Becca is also pregnant with her first baby (We already know that baby is a girl and is going to be called Selah Grace – what an awesome name!)

What’s your name?
Becca Dickson

Where do you live (country is fine)?
A small town called Nixa, right outside of Springfield, Missouri.

Where do you blog?
I mostly blog during my lunch breaks at work during the day — from my mac mini — but at night and on the weekends I blog from my mac book on the desk in my kitchen 🙂

What made you start blogging?
I started blogging in December 2009 as a way to share my daily musings as an artist, crafter, and journalist/editor. My blog has come a long way from when it first started, especially through all the followers I’ve gained through my 30 day challenges.

How long have you been blogging? Has it always been in the same place?
I’ve been blogging for almost a year now! It’s always been on blogger. Although early forms of my blogging began with Xanga. Dang it, I wish I would have saved my username and password to that account.

Do you have a day job or is blogging your main thing?
I work 8-5 as an assistant editor at the National Assemblies of God Headquarters. So I basically write all day, whether it’s working on a story or my blog! Ha.

Do you have specific blogs that inspire you?
I follow a lot of blogs that are equally inspiring, and there’s no way I’d be able to tell you about all of them. But here are a few of my top favorites:

Sometimes Sweet

If you could ask me one question (and I answer it) What would it be?
The media here in America is going insane over the Prince’s engagement … I can only imagine what the coverage is like over there in the UK! Are you tired of hearing about it yet, or are you excited about the engagement details?

Piece of advice for bloggers out there?
Don’t worry about what the “popular” blogs are doing or how many comments you have. Write about what matters to you and share personal details and hobbies that you enjoy, not what is trendy. It’s your blog, so it should reflect your personality and beliefs. Your readers will thank you for being original and unafraid of sharing your opinion.

So in answer to Becca’s question….

The media here in America is going insane over the Prince’s engagement … I can only imagine what the coverage is like over there in the UK! Are you tired of hearing about it yet, or are you excited about the engagement details?

OOh good question! To a certain degree I’m not all that bothered – it doesn’t really affect me personally then again it is kinda exciting. I hear some of my family say about how they sat in front of the TV and watched Diana and Charles get married but I wasn’t even a twinkle at that point. (They got married in 81 I think – my parents didn’t get married till 83)

So I think I might be a little bit more excited and might watch it just to say I did but all in all I’m not really that excited lol. Then again we get an extra days holiday as it’s been declared a national holiday so we get like 4 in the space of two weeks because of Easter and May Day. On the other hand they are a really cute couple and I do hope they have lots of happiness 🙂

You can find Becca’s Blog Life in Technicolor here. She also has an Etsy store here.

    It cracks me up that you weren’t even close to born when Chuck and Di got married. I was 13 and I do remember it although we didn’t have cable TV back then. I have to admit I’m excited to see the wedding.

    I. Can. Not. Imagine. Getting married with that sort of fanfare and critical eye. Ugh.

    My Mum would have only been 20 or 21 at the time of their wedding!

    It was scary enough getting married in front of my friends and family let alone the whole world (to a certain degree) I guess it depends on how many countries it’s being aired in.
