When did you start blogging and why?
Oddly enough I started blogging when I fell rock climbing. I broke my ankle and leg and I was bored. I always enjoyed writing, but not really able to express myself in a more personal way. I started talking about “deals” and that didn’t last very long as I saw I was more successful with personal/humorous posts, and Helene in Between was born. It is now my favorite hobby and I can’t see myself NOT blogging. Silver lining to my broken ankle.
What is one of your favorite blog posts you have written?
The blogging drinking game. You’ll be drunk in no time. And on a more serious note, this one about the importance of being there for each other where I write about both my sister and dad’s battle with cancer.
What inspires you?
People that work hard with good intentions. This sounds odd. But what I admire is that people that work hard for the things they want but do it in a way that doesn’t hurt others. I believe in building up those around you as well as yourself in order to succeed. Other things that inspire me: sloppy dog kisses, summer sunsets and people that dance like no one’s watching.
no she is not eating him. she is just happy he proposed.
What is your favorite form of social media?
Yelling. It’s really the most effective way to get attention. Kidding of course, my favorite is twitter. It’s weird, since I didn’t have it before I started my blog (so I’ve only had it for about 6 months). I just love looking at what people have to say.
