Let's Revive This Old Interview Game!

So I was reading through my posts this year working on a year end retrospective (also the ultimate exercise in narcissism!*) and um I ended up going back quite a bit farther when I came across that old meme where you leave a comment on a blog asking to be interviewed by the blogger. Do you remember that one? So basically I would answer five interview questions and then you'd leave a comment and I'd ask you five questions you'd answer on your blog.

Okay these were the official rules:

  • Leave me a comment saying, "Interview Me." Please include your e-mail address if it is not in your profile. (lol how old school)
  • I will respond by emailing you five questions. (I get to pick the questions.)
  • You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
  • You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
  • When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

  • It sounds really formal, yikes. Anyway, I thought since it's a holiday week basically it might be kind of fun to try to revive that since it doesn't require too much thinking. Since I'm starting it though I don't have any actual interview questions to answer. So, I'll try to answer the first five questions left in comments and update this post with them. And YOU leave me a request to be interviewed, please! I promise not to ask anything too personal or invasive. I hope you'll play along!

    ETA--Hannah asked: How many books did you DNF this year? ha, since I don't actually keep track of my reading I'm not sure, but I'd say between 50 and 100.

    Florinda asked: What are TWO things you'd like to do differently in your blogging next year? 1) I want to go where my interests take me. I've tried blogging according to a schedule and themes and ideas for years now and I burned out so hard this year that I think I'll be happier if I go where my natural interests take me. 2) I want to blog smarter. Ha ha, that will be hard, but I want to dig deep, be real, and be interesting.

    *It is REALLY embarrassing to read old posts like, whoa. At the same time, sometimes I think I used to be smarter than I am now. Also, I WAS A GUSHING FANGIRL OVER LOST. And wow I was also exhausted looking at how much I used to try to do. Here's to getting older and learning how to relax. There is no such thing as queen of the blogosphere and I'm glad I'm no longer trying to be that.
