Reading any books you can’t put down?

I’d love to have some time to just chill and read a book. What is downtime?? (nonexistent)
Tell us about your “ah-ha” moment that made you start blogging.
Mine was more of a heh? moment when I started blogging. The “ah-ha” didn’t come til later when I finally figured out what I was doing. I just haphazardly started, not really knowing much, and eventually realized I wanted to be different and offer something other than what was already out there. I wasn’t seeing a whole lot of variety at the time.

What’s your current social media addiction and why?
Instagram is taking over my digital presence. It’s the easiest, quickest, most painless posting method. I try to keep my blog, tumblr, twitter, and Instagram all different. It’s a challenge, but I personally am not a fan of people’s various feeds being all the same content repeated. It’s like what’s the point? Why not do just one then? I think in the long run people appreciate getting glimpses of different things.
