So Let's Get to Know Each Other Better

On Sunday, Sarah from Life As Always posted a reintroduction post for the new year!  I was inspired to do the same since I have some new followers around these parts!  :)

1. What is the name of your blog?  How long have you been blogging?

My blog is Rebeckann's Random Thoughts.  I recently shortened it from Rebeckann's Random Thoughts and Recipes for two reasons: 1) The first name was too long. 2) I don't always share as many recipes as I would like.  If you want to know more about where the name "Rebeckann" came from, you can read it here.

I've been blogging for 10 years.  Wow.  I started blogging on LiveJournal during my senior year of college (2004-2005).  Then I moved to WordPress when I wanted to start sharing recipes I tried in my kitchen.  Last January, I changed to Blogger because I wanted the opportunity to have sponsors for my blog.  If YOU'D like to be on my sidebar, visit my Sponsor page!  :)

2. Why do you blog?

I blog because I enjoy writing.  It's a creative outlet for me.  But what I love most is connecting with other bloggers from all over the world!  I have "met" some amazing people through reading blogs and writing my own!

3. What is the first blog you ever followed?

The first blog I ever followed was Txting Mr. Darcy, written by my friend, Brooke. 

4. What is your favorite post you wrote in 2013?

Ok, nothing jumped out to me here.  So I had to go back and look.  One that stood out to me is from back in March called "On Being a Teacher."  It's always a good reminder.  I also really like my post about Scott and I visiting a local attraction and climbing the 1,000 Steps.  My banana muffins are pretty yummy.    In September, I wrote 31 things about me for my 31st birthday.  I had SO MUCH fun writing my Music Monday post with my readers' favorite Christmas songs.  (I think that would be my most favorite post.)  Lastly, I'll go with the recipe for my grandma's cut out cookies

5. What are your blogging goals for 2014?

~I want to post at least 4-5 times a week.
~I'd also like to have sponsors for my blog to help promote other blogs that I love!
~I want to share at least two recipes a month.  (HA! The tricky thing here is that I want to do this but don't feel like cooking....)

6. Top 3 favorite blogs to follow?
In no particular order:

Kristin's kNook
Simple Moments Stick
Life as Always

These ladies always have something that makes me laugh, exclaim in agreement, say "awww", or inspires me!  If you don't know Kristin, Susannah, or Sarah, stop by and pay them a visit!

Is there anything else you'd like to know??  Ask away in the comments!

Aw, thanks so much for the shout out, dollface! I'm sure that you will accomplish your goals for 2014. And I think your "Reader's Favorite Christmas Songs" was definitely my favorite post, too. :-)
