This week you can find Mandy at BlissDom as a Community Leader for the Parenting Bloggers.
O2O: “As a Community Leader, what do you hope to give to those you come into contact with during the conference?”
Mandy: “I hope to give conference attendees a sense of reassurance. Also, I want to help them with any blogging or writing related concerns they might have.”
If you’re headed to BlissDom and you’re feeling a bit anxious about the social-ness of it all, you can get a head start on some that reassurance from Mandy by reading her post about some of her experiences last year!
I’m known for…reading. A lot.
I’m working on…putting together a photo and video studio in my office space. This has been a very slow process. I hope to get inspired to speed up the process at BlissDom.
10 years from now…I hope to have published both a memoir and a novel. I also hope to have had a television show or web series within that time frame. Ambitious much?
I’m currently addicted…to the television show Portlandia. It’s hilarious!
I find joy…in my children’s faces.
My secret ambition…is to be a Real Housewife. My tagline would be: *deep dramatic voice* I may not wash the clothes myself, but I know a thing or two about dirty laundry…darling.
I can’t do without…caffeine, books, Moleskine journals, and my family.
I’m most creative…in the middle of the night. Insomnia has brought out some of my best ideas.
I admire…anyone who has the courage to be completely honest in their writing.
When I grow up…I want to be a humorist.
PC or Mac? Currently PC, but with big dreams to switch over to Mac.
iPhone or Droid? iPhone all the way baby!
Coffee or Tea? Diet Coke
Peanut butter – crunchy or smooth? Smooooth
Three words my friends would use to describe me are: Talkative, Geeky, Funny
