Introduce Yourself…A Little Game!


October 4, 2011

OK, so as I just happened to notice the other day, I passed 1,100 followers… I couldn’t help but smile thinking just how much my little blog has grown these last 3.5 years. However, I think it would be fun to get to know some of you a little bit better, AND to find some new blogs to add to my reading list as well: so I think it would be the perfect opportunity to host a little game. 
Here’s how it goes…

If you would, please leave me a comment with your name, a few words about yourself/your blog if you have one, and then a link to your blog/website, if applicable. I think this would be a great way for each of us to meet some new people, to find out about new blogs and such, and to connect with people who we may not otherwise stumble upon–new resources are always helpful, too, as I know we all can get dumbfounded on what to blog about, etc. This whole wide world of blogging seems to get smaller all the time and I love it.

So, to give you an idea of what I’m looking for, here’s what I would write:

Hey there! I’m Natasha. Born and raised a southern gal in Nashville, TN, I’m a newlywed, mommy-to-be, lover of all things fashion, food, decor, and exercise. I love to plan parties, travel, shop, and my blog documents anything that occupies my daily existence…the good, the bag, and the sometimes not so pretty. You can check it out here: www.hellohappinessblog.com.

See, easy peasy? Please take a moment to do this, ESPECIALLY for all of you readers who may not comment as much…I hope to meet many more of you!

P.S. For local ladies, I’ve had a good amount of you approach me in restaurants, stores, and such and come up to me asking if I am Natasha. If you EVER see me, I would absolutely love to meet you…I think it’s so neat to meet blogging friends that I follow/read about, and vice versa. Yes, nerd alert on my part and I promise not to talk your ear off too much πŸ˜‰

  1. Heather says:

    Hi there. I'm Heather from Raleigh, NC. I am in my 30s, a Christian, wife, mother, and lawyer. My blog is at grace303.blogspot.com, but I confess I don't post very often.

  2. Becca says:

    I'm Rebecca, but most people call me Becca. I'm a Southern girl in my early twenties, freshly out of college, a newly-wed, coffee addict, foodie, blogger. My blog, Life as a Fitzgerald (http://www.june242011.blogspot.com), chronicles my adventures as a newly-wed. I post wedding recaps, recipes, and daily life. I would love it if you would follow along! πŸ™‚

  3. Courtney says:

    What a fun idea!
    I'm Courtney and I am a born and bred Colorado girl. I've been blogging for a little over 2 years since my husband and I got married. I work in the legal system while my husband finished grad school and we starting to talk about expanding our own family pretty soon here. =)


  4. Hey Natasha, I'm Sarah. Born/raised in rural New Jersey. I'm engaged to a wonderful man and we have 2 furbabies. Once married, we plan on building our roots in Southern Virginia. I blog about anything I want and write trash tv reviews a lot (back injury = insomnia = lots of tv). You can find me at 90percentblonde.blogspot.com

    I've been reading your blog for a while and I'm so excited for you and Jeff. I can't wait to read about your pregnancy journey!

  5. Hailey says:

    Hi! I am Hailey and I am from a small town in North Carolina! I am a twenty something southern girl. Right now, I am busy planning my wedding for next April in Charleston SC, decorating our new dream home, finishing massage therapy school and also training for my first half marathon. Needless to say, I am a busy girl!!

    My blog is like me, all over the place. I blog about everything, from wedding planning and house decor, to fashion and food.


  6. Rachel says:

    Love this! My name is Rachel and I was born and raised military so we moved around a lot. Now that I am married, we have settled in Knoxville, TN for the time being. I love my cats, spending time with my husband, tumbling, and enjoying the cooler weather on the back patio with a good book and some hot chocolate.

  7. Lauren says:

    Hi Nathasha! I'm Lauren. I'm recently engaged to my amazing fiance Brian and I'm a Nursing student. We have been engaged for almost two months but haven't officially set a date yet (although we do have an idea). Once it's official I will start posting about wedding planning and such. I've been blogging since August about about anything and everything. I love to cook and trying out new foods. I'm an "aspiring" photographer. I love fashion, decorating, and the occasional DIY.

    And I just want to say that I love your blog. I've been "following" before I even started blogging and you are part of the reason I decided to start my own.

    Have a great day!

  11. Al says:

    Hello Darlings, I'm Al. I joined the blog world a few years ago, and since have written about happily married life, my (ex) husband leaving out of the blue, surviving an unwanted divorce in my mid-twenties, falling back in love with a Turkish man, getting married this past summer and now moving to Istanbul and all of the things I am experiencing across the world. Think small-town farm girl meets city life across the world. I have two blogs, one for more gritty honesty that I created years ago, and a new one for my new love and travels abroad.

    Lots of love to you all, hope to meet you soon πŸ™‚

  26. Vicky says:

    Hello! My name is Vicky and I am from the Tampa FL Area. I was born in Ohio and moved down south at the age of 12. I've been married for a little over 6 months – so I guess I could be considered a newlywed. I work full time, go to University Part time and TRY to fit in church, gym, housecleaning, family, friends and husband time inbetween. Phew!
    I started my blog a month after getting married to write about my life as a wife. My blog touches on everything I love and fun stories as a newlywed. When I first started the blog I really had no idea how big the blog community was and now I find myself spending hours reading (aka stalking) blogs and meeting new people!!

    Hey Natasha! What a great idea.

    I'm Mrs. W from the suburbs of Atlanta…a no longer newlywed wife and mother to the sweetest pup. My Mr. and I owe a very little old bungalow and are in the very slow process of updating it. I find my love all of travel, decor and shopping have stalled this process.

My blog, http://www.bungalow348.blogspot.com helps me keep track my constantly swirling ideas and the busy life inside our bungalow. Come visit anytime!

  29. Ashley says:

    Hi Natasha (& everyone)! I’m Ashleyβ€”I’m in my 20s, a recent college grad, and a new resident of TN. I recently moved to Murfreesboro with my college sweetheart and spend a lot of my time in Nashville for work and fun. I moved here from Louisville, KY (Go Cards!) where I went to college. The boy’s family is from Nashville…which explains the move south after graduation. I love being a part of the south and everything that comes with this area of the country. Cooking, being outdoors, crafting, traveling, and photography are my favorite things. I am in the process of making Nashville my new true home, so I hope that someday soon I’ll get to use my blog as a way to build some friendships in this area. I enjoy having a blog to use as a creative outlet…check out my journey over at The Sweet Life.

    I'm Kyla- 24 from the Chicago area. I started writing my blog back in December 2010- to document my life as it is after college. I had a rough 6 month period while looking for a "big girl" job right out of college. My blog is writtedn as a way fo get down in print what's been going on since I've entered the "big girl world". I have a boyfriend named ryan that I've been dating for 3 year and I'm dying to be able to call him my finace! just waiting on him to ask! πŸ˜‰ I cant wait to blog about wedding planning, home buying/making, and all the stuff that comes after marriage!

    I dont blog as often as I would like to- but I try to keep up as much as I can and I try to update what I miss!

    Nice to meet you!!! I would LOVE some more followers! I have a small group built up so far!

I have a blog, but haven't updated it in a while–I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things, but instead of focusing on just cooking, making it more of a lifestyle blog (kind of like yours!) where I can share a little bit of everything. My blog is: http://www.ashleeinaction.blogspot.com. There are a ton of good recipes on there, so even though I haven't updated in a while, take a peek! πŸ™‚

  78. A.M. says:

    I LOVE this idea-I have been following your blog for a while and you always come up with the best ideas!

    I am Alex, a twenty something girl from Washington DC who loves shopping, crafting, fashion, country music, college football, a strong cocktail and attempting to cook. I was raised in DC (which I also refer to as no-man’s land; the South doesn’t want us, but we aren’t Yankee enough for the North), and desperately try to channel my inner Southern Belle at all times. I have to confess I didn't have anything monogrammed until college, but I learned from the best and will NEVER look back!

    My blog chronicles things I want to buy (but generally are out of my price range), my crazy friends, my (mostly) failed attempts in the kitchen, the 5 billion and a half weddings I attend, my love for anything and everything Tory Burch, and the rest of the ridiculousness that is my life. I would love for you to come check it out and let me know what you think!
