Sometimes, not all the time, but sometimes... you may think to yourself; I don't think so, but... I do:
Sometimes, I get nervous to put myself out there. To meet new people, to shake a new hand at church. To say, "Hi, I am Andrea, and I am a dork, but it is nice to meet you.
Today, I am doing just that. Blogging has allowed me the opportunity to make new friends. So... to all those friends I don't know, I am joining the "Dishing it" party over at Serenity Now.
She wants us to dish about our blogs. Here is the scoop:
I am Andrea Swenson. I am a dork, and a little quirky.
I have been blogging for a little over 2 years. I started blogging because I live so far away from my family. It was a way to share photos, video and funny one-liners from the rug rats.
Our blog was first called The Swenson Family 5.
Just before Baby #4(which would make us 6) was born I changed the title. It is now called, J & A and Co.
The reason being, both our families have shortened our names to J & A. I thought it only fitting to add the Co., because we are so much more then J & A now.
I blog about what is important to me. I share about my
family like I have from the beginning. This is the main
purpose I started blogging. This will remain my purpose always.
I add in a recipe, tip or idea every now and again. I also "try" to post about something I have learned every Thursday. Stay tuned for tomorrow.
If I had to choose a famous person to read my blog, it would have to be: Pioneer Woman. I have recently fell in love with her style, her ideas and her family values.(she's famous right? she was recently on the View)
I hope you enjoyed the dish.
I hope I get to make a few new friends.
Go on over and link up. Dish yourself. Put yourself out there. Don't hold back.
You never know, you just might make a new friend.
