Hello fellow IBOTees! How are you on this fine Tueday? (I’m hoping it’s fine. I actually wrote this on Monday night, so it’s being very positive of me isn’t it?)
The faithful among you (and by that I mean the people who read last weeks post), will know that I put the call out for some #IBOT help. Our humble little linky is growing, and I can’t be reading and commenting on each and every post each and every week.
Well, I’m more than delighted to say that six wonderful IBOT faithfuls, answered the call, and #TeamIBOT has been formed.
What does this mean? I hear you ask.
Not much is changing. IBOT will still be here, at Diary of a SAHM, every Tuesday, live at 6:30am EST.
But instead of receiving a comment from me each week, you may instead get one from the lovely ladies of #TeamIBOT.
I will still, of course, be reading and commenting, but may only get round to say 30, instead of all of you. I do love this little linky. I love the community and the people and the content. I think it is a wonderful place, and I’m excited that I can share that with all of you.
So today’s post is just a quick introduction to the wonderful ladies who will be visiting your blogs on my behalf.
Make sure you thank them and show them some love, just like they are showing you.
(The get extra love from me for acting as if my autocorrect fail was totally normal.)
So here they are….
Whats your name: Denyse Whelan
Where do you blog: www.denysewhelan.com.au
Blog is called Denyse Whelan. Education Specialist.
Do you have a favourite topic: Education – it’s life long…
Do you believe in love at first site: Yes, and at first sight too…..LOL…I met my hub that way, 42 years next year…
Which cartoon character do you most identify with and why?: Oh, Jess I can’t answer that…OK… Marge Simpson.
If you could have a super power would would it be: To predict the future (only if it’s good news though)
What food would you never eat: Mashed up RIPE bananas
Finish this sentence: #IBOT is….to the blog world as the logies is to the world of TV
My name is Rachel and my blog is Redcliffe Style (www.redcliffestyle.com). I have only been blogging for 6 months and loving it.
My favourite topic? I don’t have one. I seem to talk about everything but it tends to be positive and maybe a little funny (hopefully).
Do I believe in love at first sight? Nope. Lust yes, but I think you have to know someone to love them. I think you can feel a special connection at first sight
My cartoon connection would have to be Katara from Last Airbender. She is kind and controls water. I control water too, with a dishwasher, washing machine etc. and I like to drink water so we have a bit in common.
If I had a super power is would be flying. I hate road trips and this will really help. I could go overseas at the drop of a hat. Travel the world over and over.
I would never eat dog.
#IBOT is a safe haven for bloggers to share.
Whats your name: The newly Mrs Yvette Bowyer (Delightfully Tacky Little Squirts)
Where do you blog: http://delightfullytackylilsquirts.blogspot.com
Do you have a favourite topic: I do like blogging about my bento lunches – though wish I was as creative as the mothers in Japan who make amazing lunches for their children! But I have been known to make a ham & cheese sandwich have that wow factor!
Do you believe in love at first site: I believe in love at first sight (my husband was mine – who can’t fall in love with a guy that packs up his life in Perth and moves to the UK to be with you after a 1 week holiday fling!!) – as for a site – There has been a few I’ve been stalking lately because I am in love with the way they are so open, honest and make me laugh, cry, smile and feel all squishy inside!
Which cartoon character do you most identify with and why?: Pre-Children/Husband I would definitely say Betty Boop – but that was in the UK where life was completely different from now. I definitely relate to myself more of a Lois Griffen with hidden talents that pop up every now and then while trying to keep together my mildly dysfunctional family!
If you could have a super power would would it be: To pull a $10 note out of my handbag when it is needed.
What food would you never eat: Cooked Fruit *in a pie, cake, muesli bar etc.
Finish this sentence: #IBOT is…. what encouraged me to blog regularly and build up my site! If it wasn’t for a regular linky I would probably still have only 1 follower (myself!). It has helped me find other small blogs to read and build friendships!
What’s your name: Lyndal
Where do you blog: http://familyofkillers.com
Do you have a favourite topic: life! at the moment there is a lot of fitness and organisation stuff, because those are some of my goals for the month… I foresee travel talk, more fitness, nutrition, marriage, babies, house buying, uni finishing, random talk writings happening in the future
Do you believe in love at first site: Yes! I’m such an introvert, and I feel like your heart knows. I fall too easily and love too hard – with every area in my life!
Which cartoon character do you most identify with and why?: spongebob square pants – he loves to laugh, takes pride in his work, is such a loyal friend, optimistic, energetic and a little bit naive.
If you could have a super power would would it be: the ability to move things with my eyes… Imagine, I’d never have to pick dirty clothes up off the floor again!
What food would you never eat: if you had asked me a few months ago it would have been calamari – then it got added to my 52 in 52 list and I did it. So now I’m gonna say…. Haggis. No way, no how. And no, it’s not going on next years list!
Finish this sentence: #IBOT is…. A warm and vibrant community – it gets me through my hardest working day of the week, and has been the start of some of my greatest online friendships!
My name is Chantel
I have been blogging for about 6 months, I am a bit hit and miss with consistency, but really hoping to get into this as a regular thing. My blog is currently www.pinkelephantsandlemonade.com , but I am in the process of having a blog makeover, so it will be www.bossymummy.com so my screen name for most things is BossyMummy.
At the moment, I tend to write about our life, hopefully in the future it will be about pregnancy and newborns and then ultimately I would love to blog about ‘play’ which as an OT is one of my passions.
Love at first sight???? – I think true love comes from friendship first……but there has to be an instant connection for that to develop.
Cartoon character – Lisa Simpson – I am a bit bossy, a bit of a know it all, with major insecurities and really just wants everyone to like me.
SuperPower – mind reading
Food I will never eat – coriander/cilantro – devil’s spawn! No way, now how
#Ibot is knowing my Tuesday is going to be filled with good quality writing to read within a supportive community.
Whats your name: Rhianna
Do you have a favourite topic: I tend to share a lot of my thoughts as I try to be the best me I can be. I am of course by no means even close to the best me I could be. But that is okay. It means I always have something to work towards. Goals are important. I know that but I can’t actually set ones that are both achievable and meaningful. I want my life, and all that I do to matter.
Do you believe in love at first site: Yes and yes, but love can also grow.
Which cartoon character do you most identify with and why?: I couldn’t really think of one. I asked my husband if he had a suggestion. He asked me to get back to him. When I got back to him he apparently still needed time. Cartoons aren’t really my thing.
If you could have a super power would would it be: Yes well if I had a super power it would be the power to chose any super power at any point in time if I so needed to. Because when talking super powers surely you should be able to pick and choose.
What food would you never eat: Do you know I honestly couldn’t think of one. Even after reading everyone else’s I still can’t think of one. I am pretty sure I can recall having haggis as a child. We had some very Scottish friends…
Finish this sentence: #IBOT is…. Awesome. That is all.
You’re turn now. IBOT is….
