Whoa. I just got accepted to be a Bee on WeddingBee! I applied a couple of months ago, when I first started writing and didn’t have derby to take care of me anymore, and then I tried to just stop thinking about it. And then I wrote about my quilt and then I got an email! And they want me!
So now that someone has asked me to blog regularly for a big, all official audience, I have to write a bio and I am stuck stuck stuck. Everyone has cute bios. Please write one for me.
I did not expect to be as excited as I am right now! I’m all nervous and fluttery.
Here’s what I said on my application:
Why do you want to be a weddingbee blogger?
Our wedding is pretty low-key, but we’re still excited about it! It seems smaller than many of the other weddings on the site, but I feel like I would still have a lot to contribute in way of craftiness and resourcefulness. I love that weddingbee reaches so many people, and I would be honored to be a part of the hive! Weddingbee is part of what started me blogging, and I will always be grateful for that, whether I end up being accepted or not.
I found weddingbee when Turtle and I began talking about getting married and I found a lot of inspiration for art projects and things to think about when thinking about getting married. One thing that was hard was not seeing anyone that I felt I could really identify with at the time, though I think that has changed with the introduction of Miss Veggie and Miss Stripes, who are crunchy (former) and a lesbian (latter). These are not the only things that define me, but are aspects of myself that I have trouble finding represented. I think that I can offer a new perspective on a lot of wedding-related topics; I am not the strongest crafter (I have NO idea how to use a sewing machine) but I am good at using the resources I have, and I love to talk about them and share ideas. I also love the idea of being someone that other people can identify with. I responded to a post for the first time when Miss Stripes joined, and I hope to be someone who inspires someone else who has been silently reading to pipe in!
