Blogger or Wordpress? Blogger
widget or plugin? Strange, but I like the Feedjit because it’s fun to
see where people are coming from to view the blog
one thing that people don’t know about you? My dream is to own a bed
and breakfast in a historic town and take people on walking tours of
we are at it, what’s your theme song?
The theme song from the TV show
“The Facts of Life”….I’m always trying to take the good and the bad and
make it work! My tag line would be stolen from Tim Gunn of “Project
Runway”: “Make it work, people!”
you would bring to our community picnic:
Baked beans…….with brown
sugar, a little REAL maple syrup, 3 different kinds of beans, some BBQ
sauce, chopped bacon pieces, and crushed pineapple. Ah-mazing!
got you blogging and what keeps you going?
Most of our friends and
family don’t live near us and most of them don’t have any real
connection to Down syndrome. So I wanted them to get to know Owen
better and to get to know Down syndrome better.
post (that you wrote) that makes you laugh?
“Let there be light……or
not!” It’s just a funny lamentation on the fact that my kid is finally
tall enough to turn out the lights on me. http://thesumulong3.blogspot.com/2012/11/let-there-be-lightor-not.html
One post you are really proud of, for whatever reason?
“Owen’s Other Diagnosis” http://thesumulong3.blogspot.com/2012/11/owens-other-diagnosis.html
wrote about how sensory processing disorder affects Owen’s environment
and things we try to do to help him. I’ve had people (many of whom I
don’t know) email/message me about it to ask for more information.
Local friends have also said that they understood better why Owen and I
wouldn’t join them for certain play group outings and they actually
planned things that better suit Owen’s needs, which is a huge step
have you seen your blog/blogging style change and how would you like to
see it develop?
I’m still very new at this and frankly I’d like to see
myself take some chances and really say how I feel. Sometimes I’m
worried I might offend someone, but I think I’ve realized it’s my blog
and I just need to say it. If someone’s offended, well, so be it.
Two blogs you love to read and why? “Confessions of the Chromosomally Enhanced” http://confessionsofthechromosomallyenhanced.blogspot.com/
love hearing from Elizabeth’s older sister Leanne since it just seems
rare to have a glimpse into the world of an adult with Down syndrome.
“Life as I know it” www.lisamorguess.com
Lisa Morguess seriously says all the things and more that I wish I
would say! I just love her honesty about life in general. She nails it
every time she blogs.
Where else can we find you online?
