Happy New Year!
Hopefully you have all had a wondeful festive season with your family, and are ready to jump back into some IBOTing fun.
And if you’re not, this will help 🙂
Remember how last year sometime I put out the call for more #teamIBOT members? Well I was influxed with requests and pleas and email harrasments 😉 It was all very exciting and stressful at the same time.
Anyway, I managed to whittle the list down, and so, with no further ramblings, on my part, I’d love to introduce to you, the new Members of #teamIBOT:
Name: Sophie Allen
Where do you blog: www.i-soph.com
Do you have a favourite topic: Family life and Photography. I also blog about food sensitivity,
Do you believe in love at first sight: That’s a hard one for me. For us, as we met online, it was built up over a few months of emails, chat rooms and phone calls. It was 6 months before we actually met in person.
Which cartoon character do you most identify with and why?: Mumma Bee from The Hive because she is always busy, and likes to bake!
If you could have a super power would would it be: Teleporting. I’d love to be able to instantly be in Broken Hill, the Sunshine Coast or Florida with family. Not to mention all the great holidays!
What food would you never eat: Oysters or snails. Never. Ever.
What’s the first thing you would buy if you had $1 000 000? If paying off the mortgage counts I would do that first. Then I would buy the latest model top of the range Toyota Landcruiser.
What’s your name: Belinda, but call me B.
Where do you blog: http://bbeingcool.com
Do you have a favourite topic: I do love writing about fashion and I also love sharing recipes and general life things…
Do you believe in love at first sight: Yes, it happens with shoes all the time!
Which cartoon character do you most identify with and why?: Mrs Jetson. Ultra modern, but still wears an apron to cook.
If you could have a super power would would it be: To fly. How cool would that be!
What food would you never eat: Dog. Just wrong.
What’s the first thing you would buy if you had $1 000 000? A family ‘Around The World Ticket’
Finish this sentence: #IBOT is….the friendliest community on the net, great host, great blogger, great team spirit.
Where do you blog: always Josefa http://www.alwaysjosefa.com/
Do you have a favourite topic: I love to write about life and the turns and tumbles that we go through. There are four different spaces on my blog – Pieces of Me, The Kinnie Club, Nine Months More and Apples and Oranges. In each of these spaces I talk about different life experiences; family, parenting, marriage, allergies, hopes, dreams and expectations.
Do you believe in love at first sight: The romantic in me does. I am a hopeless romantic at the very core. I catch my breath in sappy romance movies and shed more tears for romance than I do sadness. As for love at first sight in the real world, sure I believe in love at first sight, but I believe in lots of hard work to make that love a long, lasting, faithful and fulfilling relationship – doesn’t work any other way. I will teach my boys to believe in love, treasure love and work hard to find the “one” and just maybe they will be lucky enough to experience love at first sight.
Which cartoon character do you most identify with and why?: I can’t believe that from all the questions – this one stumped me the most and I think I’m shocked and disappointed in myself Firstly, I adore cartoons. I am huge fan. Even before my boys came along, I would drag hubby along to all the Disney movies and have always coveted cartoon character plush toys. But to pick one, that I most identify with???? I’m going to just go with my gut and say Buzz Lightyear – for the very scene in Toy Story (the original) when poor Buzz comes to realize he is actually a toy – so much I can relate to in that one moment – and for Buzz to grow into the Buzz of Toy Story 2 and face the “toy” Buzz who doesn’t know he is actually a toy – so much I can relate to – and – last but not least – best tag line ever – To Infinity and Beyond!
What food would you never eat: Never? Probably nothing. But I can’t eat venison, reminds me of Bambi.
What’s the first thing you would buy if you had $1 000 000? Instantly, the ‘logical me’ kicks in for this one with the answer “my house”. I’d love to walk into the bank and pay it all off in one go.
Where do you blog: www.twitchycorner.com, my little corner of the blogosphere. Please visit- I’ll put the coffee on.
Do you have a favourite topic: Dramedy: The general unmitigated chaos of modern domestic life which is best viewed safely in hindsight.
Do you believe in love at first sight: Yes. This happened to me, 18 years ago on January 11 when I met my future husband. (Well to be precise, chemistry being what it is- it was definitely lust at first sight; proven to be love also.)
Which cartoon character do you most identify with and why?: Oh, tricky one! I’d sure like to say Wonderwoman, what with my golden lasso and invisible jet and all, but closer to the truth is Garfield. I think we have the same theoretical zest for life…merely exchange lasagne weakness for that of vodka and chocolate…you get the idea.
If you could have a super power would would it be: A twitch or a blink to instantly make a house clean and a sumptuous meal appear- no washing up. Runner up would be to be able to make children fall asleep with the snap of a finger.
What food would you never eat: Red meat- gave it up as a teen. Passionfruit. *gag*What’s the first thing you would buy if you had $1 000 000? A shack in the woods by a stream, with a lovely porch, abundant wildlife, wildflowers and a valley view. And you will find me there visiting her.
Finish this sentence: #IBOT is:…. A vital part of your weekly social media regimen, full of health-giving mental vitamins, minerals and an abundance of bloggy love.
Where do you blog: at Colours of Sunset (http://coloursofsunset.wordpress.com)
Do you have a favourite topic: I love blogging about politics and the response that usually gets, but I don’t do it often
Do you believe in love at first sight: I believe in lust at first sight, and chemistry at first sight, but love? Naaaaah.
Which cartoon character do you most identify with and why?: I got nothing. Sorry!
If you could have a super power would would it be: Definitely to be able to fly!
What food would you never eat: I don’t eat seafood, other than the occasional fish and chips. But no prawns, lobster, etc.
What’s the first thing you would buy if you had $1 000 000? The very first thing would be a new truck for my husband.
Finish this sentence: #IBOT is a great place to share your blog and discover other great blog/gers. It truly is a community, and a great one at that!
Do you have a favourite topic: Lately I’ve been loving blogging about healthy family meals, that both the big people and the toddler will love!
Do you believe in love at first sight: I think some people definitely experience it, so yes it totally exists! It wasn’t that was for me, we were friends for about two years before we started going out.
Which cartoon character do you most identify with and why?: This one is hard!! I would have to say Leela from Futurama, because we seem to have pretty similar tastes in men, my husband looks a lot like Fry!
If you could have a super power what would it be: Time Travel. Being the History nerd I am, I would think it would be pretty awesome to time-travel. Also I could warn myself about stupid mistakes I made (although I probably wouldn’t have listened to myself).
What food would you never eat: Tuna from a can. I just cannot handle the smell or the thought of it.
What’s the first thing you would buy if you had $1 000 000? The boring answer would be, my house, so I didn’t have a mortgage. What I would really want is a whole new wardrobe full of clothes, and some really expensive shoes. Oh, and I can’t forget a personal shopper and chef!
Finish this sentence: #IBOT is kick-ass
All you have to do, is based on this list, tell me what present you would buy a team IBOT member from JB. It’s a game of skill, so be creative 🙂
The silly season is here, and that means it’s time to find some games or movies to entertain the family over the Christmas break. In the spirit of the holidays, Rentsmart is giving away a $50 JB Hi-Fi gift card for one reader to spend in store. Buy the latest superhero movie or purchase a game for the little ones to play, then kick back with a coffee and enjoy a peaceful and relaxing holiday season…that’s a gift that’s priceless.
Now let’s get blogging!!
(Gentle reminder folks, you need to share a new, previously unpublished post. Don’t make #teamIBOT cranky now!)
