No Stranger Sunday: #2

Welcome to No Stranger Sunday, where every Sunday I will post an interview of a different blogger from around the blogsphere. Take the time, get to know these people. Visit their blogs.

This week, I am pleased to announce Kandi from Twin-Spiration! She is a wonderful lady and has quite a lot of great posts - definitely worth checking out!! Tell us a bit about yourself:

Do you live in a city or a more rural area?
We are in a rural area...small town.

Are you married? If so, how long?
I am married to my high school sweetheart and have been married for almost 8 years.

Do you have children? If so, how many?
Yes, I have 6 year old identical twin girls.

Any extra family members? (i.e. pets)
We have an albino Boxer named Martini and a very old Boston Terrier named Buddy

What food makes your mouth water, just thinking about it?
Mexican food, yum!

What is your favorite book?
I love to read self help book and some of my favorite ones are by Jim Rohn like "The five major pieces to the life puzzle". For pleasure reading, I am a big fan of the James Patterson books...The Cross Series.

Do you collect anything? If so, what?
I have been a bartender since I was 21 and love to collect bartending stuff. I also have a weird fetish about sticky note pads, I love all different kinds of those. One more thing that I am a big collector of is scrapbooking stuff. I have just recently dabbled in the digital scrapbooking but have $1,000's of dollars worth of scrapbooking stuff.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
I enjoy playing basketball with my girls, blogging and reading.

Tell us a bit about your blog:

Is there any certain reason that you named your blog "Twin-Spiration"?
I wanted something "twin" related since I have twins and they are my inspriation for doing this blog...hence the name "twin-spiration".

When did you start blogging?
October 2009

What is something that you love about your blog?
I love that I can journal my's very theraputic and then at the end of the year I am able to make a book of my blog to reflect on each and every year of our lives. I also love connecting with like minded people...that's great!

Did you design your own blog? If not, who did?
I designed it myself and everyday am teaching myself more on Photoshop to be able to totally "pimp" it out.

Are there any topics that you LOVE to blog about?
My girls and my husband...both are equally funny topics.

Any topics that you really try not to blog about?
I am not a big political person unless I feel very strongly about I try to stay out of that arena, but when I do blog about it, you will want to read it cuz it will be pretty meaningful. :)
How many blogs do you currently use?
Do people have more than one? Oh my...I may have to start another one. LOL

Do you have any tips for other bloggers?
One thing I was told early on was not to give your family and friends your blog address...unless they are really close to you. That way you can write about whatever is going on with you and not worry about who is reading it. Also, something that I didn't know when I first started was that you want to hit enter between all of the paragraphs so it's not a solid amount of writing...and always use some sort of picture(s). I learned quickly.

Is there anything you'd like to say to the readers?
I would love to have you follow me and would love to follow you. I enjoy reading about other peoples experiences and think this is a great support network. Also, any feedback that you have that could improve my blog, I am totally open to.
Kandi, thanks so much for allowing me to interview you and for allowing my readers (and myself) to have the opportunity of learning more about you and your blog! Not only do I appreciate you being a part of this meme, I appreciate your help with a wonderful idea that contributed to this meme. :) You're a doll!!

And thank all of you for visiting this week's No Stranger Sunday! If you would like to be interviewed, feel free to visit the No Stranger Sunday link and sign up. :)
