Total Basset Case: From Blog Life to Real Life

Jun 14, 2012

From Blog Life to Real Life

My friends (and hubs) have come to learn that when I talk about my "friends" 
or something I read online that I am generally talking about my blog friends 
and not necessarily someone I've met in real life.
 But I think that is one of the best things about blogging...
you are able to make all of these new friends,
share experiences and get to know one another virtually.
Distance no longer becomes a factor because you have the awesomeness that is the blogworld.

Even though you don't live in the same city you can still be very good friends
and that, my friends ;), is awesome!

Not to mention those blog friendships that turn into real life friendships.
Warms my heart.
I absolutely love the stories of Katie/Steph and Raven/Lindsey
becoming best friends through the blog world.

So when I spotted this link up over at Britt's blog
I knew I had to join in on the fun
I mean who doesn't love dreaming up imaginary lives with your blogger bffs?
(btw, have you checked out Britt's blog? I'm sponsoring over there this month and she is awe.some.)

 1. Do you have any real life blog friends? 
Sure do! Elise and I are best friends from college
I also know Katie, Lauren, Liz and Bethany since we all live in Cincinnati 

2. Which blogger are you just dying to meet?
Without a doubt, PW. My infatuation love for her and her bassets is undeniable. 
The things I would give to spend a weekend at the ranch with her...
3. Which blogger's closet do you want to raid? 
Pretending that size isn't an issue...
I would start with Erin's- since she has 4 (!) of them
 then I would move on to Shanna's because she's adorable and girl can work Forever 21 like none other!
4. You are stuck on an island. Which blogger would you want with you to help you survive? 
I have to go with Raven because I know that she would have drinks with her
and PW because I know we would be eating well. 
5. The first blogger you remember "meeting" and connecting with ? 
 I think Katie, we have become good friends, thanks to the 
blogging and living in the same city!
And I have to say that the the few times I have met up with another bloggers, 
it has always been the best experience! I can't wait to meet more in the future!

6. Any blogger that you admire and look up to? 
Some of the best blog advice that I've ever read is to just be 'you'. I think this is so true and important and a feature that I strive for that everyday. I love when I find blogs that are 'real' every day, day in and day out. I think that Steph, Katie and Erin do this EXTREMELY well and I admire them a lot for that.

7. Who is the craziest/funniest blogger? 
It is a toss up between Erin and Tiff
I die laughing at each of them every day.

 8. There's a reality television show for bloggers, who would you want to be casted with you? 
First of all, that would be so fun.
Okay, long list...
Katie, Erin, Raven, Steph, Katie, Lauren, Megan, Tiff (and Sherman), Natasha, and Cassie.

9. Some bloggers have really cool jobs, anybody you'd like to swap careers with? 
 I choose Jenni for this one. 
 She's beautiful, has adorable dogs, gets to work from home, and do photography.
(And her hubs isn't half bad looking either...jk, Mister)

10. Favorite blog design? 
Erin gets the award for this one...her blog is so pretty and pleasing to the eye, I just love it!

Annnnd now you know who I stalk on a daily basis, ha!  

Who are your favorites?
Go link up!!

Erin @ Living In Yellow said...

Oh my goodness girl. You are way too sweet. Seriously, that was not necessary for like 2 thousand shout outs but I do appreciate it. I owe you big time. Anyhow, I would LOVE to meet you too someday. As in, we are making this happen. My day seriously just got so much better, so thank you again. love you oh so much. xoxo.

Elizabeth said...

Found you from the link up - love that you consider your "friends" people from the blogosphere. I do that too and most people think I am crazy!

Because Shanna Said So said...

Awe, thanks for the love, Sarah!! You made my day!! This link up was so fun, but so hard!! I am mad at myself for not putting together an entire cast for a reality show!! I hope they do another link up because there are soooooo many more blogs I wanted to mention, including yours!! You are seriously the sweetest! Can't wait to check out some of these other ladies!

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

This was so much fun! Looks like I have quite a few bloggers to check out :)

Kaitlyn B said...

Just found you from the link up and I'm so excited to look at your suggestions!!

Allison said...

Yay...I answered the same as you for who I'd swap jobs with. I am obsessed with PW!
P.S. I want in on all the Cincy blogger fun!

Raven said...

You are so sweet for mentioning me!! And you KNOW I would have some drinks in hand on a deserted island!! This was an awesome linkup idea!

Darby Hawley said...

Phil and I have had that same conversation about my "friends" hahaha I love my blogging buddies, and hopefully one day I will meet you and Floyd!

brittany @ g squared said...

Yay for Cincinnati bloggers! Glad to have some new local ones to check out.

Anne said...

Ha - my husband is always rather bemused when I talk about my "blog friends"... I feel the same way about the awesomeness of the blog world though. Glad to see a few other Cincinnati bloggers to check out through this post - distance isn't an issue when it comes to blog friends, but it's still fun to find ones in your city!
