I've linked up with the super fun Sunday Social in the past. Ashley and Neely have put this together for the past 123 weeks. Incredible! However, they've decided to move on from the Sunday Social and start a new link up beginning in November! I'm excited to see what they come up with!!
Today, they decided to revisit the questions from the very first link up.
1. How did you come up with your blog name?
I'm a teacher. But, I'm more than just a teacher. I'm a dreamer, a traveler, an avid reader, interior decorator, and chef. I created this blog as a way to document my life. And I share who I am "beyond the gradebook." Thus, the name.
2. What is your favorite thing about blogging?
While I haven't (yet) been to a blogger meet up, one of my favorite things about my time spent blogging is "meeting" so many fabulous people/bloggers. I've been introduced to some awesome teachers and some amazing bloggers. I can't wait to hopefully soon attend a meet up and get to meet some of these bloggers in person! I also love what this blog is becoming. I love going back through the archives and seeing what was going on in my life in the past. It's a great way to document life.
3. What is one thing you have discovered because of blogging and now can't live without?
Even though I've only gotten one box, StitchFix is one of my blogging 'discoveries.' I received one and can't wait to receive my next box, whenever that next box should happen. And I just love reading other bloggers post about their StitchFix boxes! StitchFix is a subscription service where a stylist sends you a box of five clothing pieces/accessories. You try them on, decide which you want to purchase and send back the rest. It's super fun and their clothes are so fun! If you want to try it out, click here to learn more!
4. Facebook or Twitter?
Facebook. By far. I have a Twitter account, but honestly, I don't use it. It's only for my online book club meetings and contest entries. I just don't quite understand all the ins and outs of Twitter. But, if I was asked to pick my favorite social media, It would definitely be Instagram. Click here to follow me on Instagram!
5. If one celeb read your blog, who would you want it to be?
Wow - what a question. If I had to pick a celeb, I'd probably pick Jennifer Garner. She seems like such a down to earth girl and I would love to be friends with her. And I think that if she was reading my blog, we would be pretty good friends ;)
6. What is something you want people to know about your blog?
This is me. I use this blog to document my travels, share my favorite books and favorite products, and everything you read is 100% me! I don't write to please others - I write for me!
