People frequently ask me questions about this blog and my views on assorted subjects. Below are a few questions and a few answers.
Why did you feel compelled to write a blog?
Because I despise most mommy blogs and wanted to get the word out that parenting wasn’t all about trends, strollers, strangling your child with over protection or about YOU. It is all about raising your child to one day be an adult – not your self serving little pet. From there I branched out to other family issues such as taking care of elders and crazy siblings (4 older brothers – all Vampires) and cats and Ghosts and Werewolves. After a while poetry and everything else sort of evolved. I’ve written over 800 posts so explore. You’ll be surprised what you find.
For the best idea about who and what I am check out the pages:
- Curious About Vampire Maman (all about this blog and my message)
- Parenting: What I Believe and Practice
- Short Stories – Stand Alone
You’re a romantic aren’t you?
Yes, I am. Very much so. I can’t help it.
Despite your sarcastic and snarky comments you are actually pretty sweet.
That is my true nature. I am very sweet, but I also realize that the world isn’t all unicorns and rainbows (unless you are Rainbow Donkey – we all love our Rainbow Donkey.) I love small cute furry creatures.
What do you have against red pants?
Men who wear red pants will be mocked when their children show their children photos of Grandpa in his foolish fashions of 2014. Nobody over the age of 5 should wear red pants.
Do you plan what you are going to write?
Only for October and December and back-to-school season. Those are big months for both parenting and Vampires. The rest of the time I think up everything as I go.
What about Short Story Sunday?
I write tho stories on Sunday before the sun comes up. Sometimes after the sun comes up, but they’re written that day with little or no planning, usually in less than 45 minutes or the time it takes me to brew a cup of French Pressed coffee and drink it.
What movies should I watch this week?
- Grand Budapest Hotel
- Local Hero
- 3:10 to Yuma
What blogs do you follow?
I will get back to you on that. I have a select few that I look forward to and look for. I miss them when they aren’t writing. I’ll let you know when I have more time to put it all in the right words and get the links correct. Most are smart and witty and really interesting. I always learn something from these writers (or they make me laugh.) You know who you are.
I want to meet your brother Max.
You and all the other girls (and boys.)
Will you turn me into a Vampire?
Are your blog posts fact or fiction?
