And so I have finally managed to put pen to paper (actually it was more like fingers to keys) and figure out my own answers. It’d be great to see how other people answer these as well, so let me know if you’ve done this tag yourself and I can check it out!
What’s the story behind your blog name?
I got the idea for ‘That Daring Darling’ from the tagline of one of my favorite movies ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’. The full line is: “Audrey Hepburn plays that daring, darling Holly Golightly to a new high in entertainment delight!”.
What’s your real reason for blogging?
Not that I’m good at sticking to it, but my real reason for blogging is very simple! I enjoy having my own personal corner of the Internet where I can I can write and share what I want. It’s a great way to keep track of my thoughts, comings and goings for future Shannon.
Best thing about blogging?
Having a way to be creative and share that with others.
Worst thing about blogging?
Trying to be consistent! I have so many ideas and things I want to do but I don’t commit to writing them…
Proudest moment so far?
Getting the courage to start!
What’s your ultimate blogging goals? Don’t be shy!
Everything is still fairly new for me so I haven’t thought too much about my ‘ultimate blogging goals’, as I’ve been waiting (and waiting!) to find my feet. At the moment my main aim is to find my groove and build up a core group of readers. I’d love to be able to discuss and talk about stuff with people from all over.
If you released a book, what genre would it be?
A picture book! With wonderful words and dreamy illustrations. What can I say? I’m a Children’s Librarian at heart!
If you released products, what would they be? Homeware, beauty or something unexpected?
Slogan t-shirts! I have collected so many beautiful quotes that I think would look awesome on a shirt, plus it’s a great way to showcase your personality.
Would would you name the product and why?
I’d probably try and link it to my blog name or maybe another Audrey Hepburn movie. I love a good theme!
What has blogging taught you?
That I can be creative! Before I dipped my toes in the blogosphere, I would read my favorite blogs and think that as much as I’d like too, I’d never be able to be involved with something like that. It’s best to leave the creative stuff to my more talented friends. I’m not the best writer or creator by far but I’m so glad I decided to give it a shot.
Sum up your blog in three words!
1) Mine: I want everything I post to be personal and way for me to remember all the little details.
2) Creative: I want this blog to inspire me to create, to expand my horizons and to encourage me to try new things.
3) Potential: At the moment the moment my focus is inspiring myself but who knows what ‘That Daring Darling’ could become?
I hope you’ve enjoyed this little insight into the mystery that is me. I know I had a lot of fun writing out answers. And remember to let me know if/when you’ve done this tag so I can have bit of a nosy look!
