[ Part I: About blogging ]01/ How many blogs do you have that are currently active?
I have 2...Christine's Blog and What's Happening
02/ What are your blogs about? Do you have tag lines?
Christine's Blog is 'a life journal' ; What's Happening is about 'things that grab my attention.' I'm not really sure what a tagline is. I don't have the slogan registered anywhere.
03/ Is your blog a reflection of you or just a place for your creative/personal outlet?
My blog is a reflection of me because I tend to include things that interest me or that I find beautiful. I will also include snippets of my personal life, family and friends.
04/ How did you come up with the name for your blog?
I didn't give it much thought, to be honest...Christine's Blog...plain and simple!
05/ Do you have a blogroll or a reading list of your favorite blogs? If not, then what blogs do you like reading?
I do have a blogroll consisting of both longtime and new blog friends. It seems to be an assortment of friends with different interests. Being a loyal sort, I tend to stay in touch for a long time.
06/ What category or categories do you think your blogs falls under? For example: book blog, a cooking blog, an art blog, etc. OR simply just a blog?
It would be a journal blog.

I have a language converter, a blog roll, and links to the art co-ops I contribute to.

Be careful what you say, it is the blogsphere, not a vacuum as I first felt!

Some people call me Chris, I am fine with that, or with my full name Christine.
02/ List 7 words to describe you.
This was a hard one: loyal, organized, responsible, compassionate, diligent, mom, clever. That sounds boring.
03/ If you do not have to worry about time or money, what is your favorite way to spend your day?
A nice long walk, stopping off for latte and a treat. Just a latte if I happen to be watching my weight!

Blogging, painting for the art co-ops, walking, aerobics, learning new things
05/ What is the one book that you love that you would recommend to just about everybody?
I recently read Looptail, Bruce Poon Tip's true story of how he founded G Adventures, the world's largest adventure travel company, with 2 credit cards. It is a fascinating read.

07/ List 7 of your favorite things.
music, good food, alone time, blogging, my art, family, beautiful things
08/ When are you most creative/productive? The morning, the afternoon or night or just about any time?
In the morning when I have more energy! I was a night person when I was younger.
09/ Many of your art used photo references, do you seek them out on purpose or do you just get inspired to draw without even thinking?
I need photo references, maybe because I am very visual. I will see something that catches my eye, then maybe I will be inspired to come up with my own interpretation, always aware of copyright restrictions.
10/ Draw, write, photograph or use any form of communication something that represents you in some way.
I think my smile represents me, I smile a lot, with everyone I meet.
