Today is Sunday, I’m just chilling away and enjoying lots of me-time. So while that pretty much means that I’m in bed doing nothing but playing with my phone, the little voice in my head was like: “Ummm, you’re still doing Blogtober, so ya gotta post something.”
I scrolled a bit through Twitter, and I came across Helen from Crispy Confessions doing “The Face Behind the Blog” tag by Jan, who originally put it together for JanOnTheBlog. Basically, it’s a fun way to get to know a bit more about bloggers, so here I go.
- Use “The Face Behind the Blog” tag to post a bit about yourself.
- Tag two or more blogs that you love or leave an open invitation.
- Be sure to mention this post and the original post on JanOnTheBlog.com.
Who am I?
I’m Hailey, which admittedly is not the name given to me at birth, but that’s about the only thing I’m a bit secretive about. I’m just really paranoid, sometimes. Anyway, I’m 32 years old, live in Germany, and I’m a journalist. I am also a sister, godmother, dog lover, overthinker, scrapbooker, creative thinker, and lots more. I have a crazy mind and a big heart, and I have more stuffed Disney animals than any 32-year-old should probably have.
Where am I from?
I am from Germany but have also lived in the US several times at different stages in my life. Good memories. Growing up, I always thought, I’d move back as an adult and try building a life there, but after a year as an au pair, I changed my mind pretty quickly. I had a great childhood in the States, but now that I’m much older, I am a lot more grateful for the country I was born in, and just don’t like the US as much as I used to.
What’s a perfect day?
I guess today is a perfect day. I got to sleep in with an extra hour cause of daylight saving, I have no plans that require leaving the house, and I’m just relaxing while listening to 90s music and raindrops hitting my window. I’m gonna do a bit of reading, writing, watch a movie and eat junk food. Now if that’s not perfect, I don’t know what is.
What do I do?
I am a journalist and work for a local newspaper. Yeah, we actually still produce print issues. So I do that, also lots of editing, interviews, writing articles, and so on.
Why do I blog?
Because I’ve always loved writing, need it as an outlet, and think it’s fascinating that with just one click, you can put out anything into the world. I also am a bit full of myself sometimes, and love to share things. Keeping everything in a notebook just wasn’t enough for me. It’s a lot of fun, and I’ve met great people because of it.
I honestly would love to read from just anyone who wants to give it a go, so I can learn more about other bloggers. But I always love reading from my girls Aoife from Pretty Purple Polka Dots, Tina from Tea is for Tina, and Kristina from Royal Lifestyle by Honey.
Oh, and Helen wanted to know which word would describe me (or any person who does the tag after visiting her blog). I’d say a roller-coaster-ride, cause my emotions, interests, decisions, etc. are usually all over the place, and that’s just what the inside of my head always feels like.
