Vogue 73 Questions
Ever since joining the Blog Boss Babe community, I've been really going out of my comfort zone to participate more in the forums, as well as exploring others blogs and commenting. I soon began to realize that my page views were increasing, and going through some of the webinars I realized I need to improve my about me page! Hence the reason why there is no "About Me" page available at the moment.
So, as I was reading through some of my daily reads, and found a cute post from Kendal @ Little Misadventures share 73 tidbits about herself. And, I decided to steal the Vogue 73 Questions from her as a way for my newer readers to get to know me as I am updating my "About Me" page!
Before I get into the questions, I thought I'd share a recent photo of myself. Why? Well, most people have a hard time guessing what my background is because I am mixed. Believe it or not, others have assumed I was either Spanish, Egyptian, Malaysian, and many more! So, I thought I'd share a photo of me wearing a sari, something that most people don't often see me wearing.
While you try to figure out what I am, let's get into these questions! (Don't worry, I'll share with you what my background is at the end of this post!)
