Can you stand a little shameless self-promotion? Isn't that what blogging is all about? Do you see anything new on my blog? A featured blogger button from little Indiana! And I'm so proud I could just bust my buttons! I don't know who stumbled upon whom first, me or Jessica, but she emailed asking if I would be willing to be featured on her blog. Would I? What an honor! Jessica Nunemaker is the hostess with the mostess of little Indiana. In her words: your guide to the best of Indiana small towns. I've never met Jessica, but I would love to because there are a lot of crazy photos of her online, evidently she truly enjoys life and must be an enjoyable person to be around. I envision recognizing her sometime, say at the state fair and hollering "Jessica!" She would turn to me, giving me that "who are you crazy lady" look and I would say "Whosyergurl!"
Jessica followed up with another email with interview questions. Wow, that was tough and I'm grateful for her probing questions because it caused me to take a long hard look at my blog. I basically went all the way back to the beginning and combed through my blog, post by post.
I think if most people are honest, they are usually madly in love with the state that they hail from. I had a hilarious conversation (I thought it was hilarious) over the holidays with someone who told me IF she were to get a tattoo, she might get a tattoo of the outline of her home state. (Not Indiana.) I laughed and told her that would be the most boring tattoo ever and I think I made her about half-mad. She said "it wouldn't be boring because I have a lot of pride in my state!" I have to say I understand. Don't we all have a lot of pride in our state?
I know whenever we are out of state and cross over the state line, no matter who is in the car, we always break out in song singing Back Home Again in Indiana.
To read all about what Jessica had to say about Whosyergurl, click here. She tuned in on the post at the beginning of the year, the day that I waded into Monroe Reservoir. Doug and I went to the Y tonight and afterward, to the grocery. We were walking to the car, me wearing shorts in thirty-six degree weather and I said "I think I'm just going to wear shorts all winter- it will make me tough." Thus far we are having an unseasonably mild winter. Remind me of this proclamation when it is really cold and snowy. O.k., go see Jessica at little Indiana. Even if you aren't from Indiana, you'll enjoy it. If you are from Indiana, you will really enjoy it!
