Meme time!!

I was tagged with this meme by Andie ....
Here we go!

This is the internet space at the hotel in Morocco

What is your blogging name?

Jientje. I explained why in one of my first posts on this blog.
It's a diminuative for Jane, sort of. You can think of me as Jeany, but call me Jientje?

My little sister Bientje and me, in the study at my appartement.

When did you start blogging, exact date?

I started blogging on Christmas day 2006. (On my Skynet Belgian blog that is.)
I don't think I was one of many that day!
I needed my sister's assistance to get me started, and that was not easy because we do not live across the street from each other anymore. A few minutes before midnight on Christmas day I wrote my very first post! Less than a year later I started my Heaveninbelgium blog on Blogspot.
It was towards the end of Nablopomo that I felt that I did not want to leave my English speaking friends! I used the Nablopomo platform to guide them to my new blog! And they followed me!
I'm very happy for that!

What was your first title?
My first title on that blog was " het kon niet uitblijven" wich means something like " It could not be stopped!"
On this blog it was "I finally did it ... now what?"

Which posting do you feel is the best post so far?
Now that we've found love what are we gonna do with it?
I wrote it when I had just joined 365. I think it's one of the most hilarious posts I have ever written! And everybody admitted it ... every word is true!
Most read according to the stats is "How to make lace".
And I like the meme with the J's too ...

Who is the source of inspiration for you to blog?
My little sister inspired me to start blogging, I had never heard of a blog before!

My little sister and me, at the hotel lobby in London.

When do you usually post entries ?
I usually write something in the evening the previous day, and edit / post them in the morning.

Where would you prefer to be when you are blogging?
On my couch with my cat purring next to me.

Have you met other bloggers? Who?
Not in this blogosphere. On my Skynet blog in Belgium I've met several friends already.
The tour at the cathedral I did recently was guided by one of my blogging friends.

My Belgian blogging friend Nana, the first blogger I met in real life.

How many entries you made in a month?
I have posted every day in 2007 on my Skynetblog, I did Nablopomo on the side.
And now I have this blog AND my Skynetblog. I post every day of the year, on both of them!
Yeah!!!! I know!

Would you reveal your face or your family in your blog?
I don't see why not?

This is where I blog.

Would you promote your friends to blog? Why?
No. It's not because I like to blog that everybody has to start blogging!
I prefer meeting new friends, in real life OR in the blogosphere.

Would you feel restless / guilty conscious, incomplete if you didn’t blog for a month?
Oh yes, I would! Although sometimes it's a little bit stressy to produce something entertaining or worth reading every day, it's also very stimulating, so...

Define blogging!
Writing a letter to all of your friends, every day.
Looking forward to read their letters, and receiving their comments.
Meeting new friends along the way...

I'm skipping the tagging bit today, but if anybody is interested, feel free to do one!
Let me know, I'll come and visit!
