Behind The Blogger Book Tag

I’ve been tagged by culinary Queen Christina owner of the best Recipe and Review blog you’re likely to find anywhere, to spill the beans. But rest assured, no beans were harmed in the writing of this post—I promise. The Rules: Thank the person who nominated you Answer all the questions below Pingback the creator: Ellyn @ Allonsthornraxx Nominate bloggers you’d like to know more about in this tag And, of course, here are the questions: #1. Why did you start blogging and why have you kept blogging? I started blogging way back when I met this triceratops with one of the first Apple computers.

Whoever it was, things happened. Unexplainable things. #2 Have you ever sneaked out of the house to go to a party in your wild teen years? Oh dear, I am soooo boring when it comes to my rebellious teen years. I left home at 17, so in answer to that one, eh, no. #3 What’s your take on flowery food? (Lavender biscuits, wild flowers in salads, and so on). Yey or nay? Where’s …
