My friend over at I Am A Writing Monkey nominated me for a Sunshine Award and I’m so thankful!
For The Sunshine Award, you have to answer the following ten questions and then nominate ten other bloggers. Sounds like chain mail!? Probably is! But what the hell, it’s an award! Adding it to my resume now …
What inspired you to start blogging?
I was working for a magazine in Phoenix in a kickass editorial department. We were so kickass, we drew this on our office wall:
Anyway, my fellow kickass editorial and design co-workers were starting these fabulous independent projects and I thought I would too. I’ve always loved books, so I thought that had to be the focus of my blog.
How did you come up with the name to your blog?
I am Julie, the blog is about books for women. The dinosaur theme came later, otherwise this blog would be called, “Julie Chicklitasaurus.” Though that would be tough for some people to spell.
What is your favorite blog you like to read?
Tell about your dream job.
I would travel to see every culture in the world, taste every food, pet every animal and hear every story. What’s that called? Maybe it’s called being God. Maybe it’s not possible. But a gal can dream!
Another dream job would to be to create a RAWResome Blogger Award. WINK!
Is your glass half empty or half full?
My glass is always half full of either a brown ale, a margarita or red wine! But not in the same night. I’ve been to college. I know better.
If you could go anywhere for a week’s vacation, where would you go?
The bottom of the ocean. Not really a vacation, but it is the most exclusive spot in the world, right? Those giant squids can be so snotty.
What food can you absolutely not eat?
I don’t eat any cute animals: cows, pigs, goats or lamb. Yeah, chickens are kind of cute, but I’ll still eat ’em. Turkeys are kinda growing on me too. I love how they scream their gobbles at me in the morning when I get in my car.
But fish, no not them. They’re some ugly mother effers. So I eat them. Especially on sushi rolls.
Dark chocolate or milk chocolate?
How about this … dark chocolate milk. Eh? Yeah? I’m taking that idea to Shark Tank!
How much time do you spend blogging?
It depends, because I have this thing called a “job” and I have to earn an “income.” I’d love to do it all day, everyday … maybe someday. (Did I just write a Haiku?)
Do you watch TV, and if so, what are some of your favorite shows?
Game of Thrones (I am a Stark – winter is coming, y’all), Dexter (I kinda want Dexter and Debra to end up going off together – does that make me weird?) and Impractical Jokers.
