Sunday Social: Week 14

Sunday Social

It's been a while since I linked up for Sunday Social, but I thought I'd end the day with a little blogging.

1. What is the name of your blog and how did you come up with it?

This blog is called {Not So} Newlyweds. I'm not really sure how I came up with it. I honestly thought about it for a long time! I kept thinking of The Newlyweds, but we've been married almost four years, so really we aren't technically "newlyweds" any more. So I decided to add the "not so" to the front. I'm not sure why I put the "not so" in parentheses, but I like how it looks!

 2. What do you love most about blogging?

I love all the advice, ideas, and friendships I have made. Sometimes the ideas I come up or want to try with after reading other blogs get pretty crazy, but it's good to a lot of ideas from other people. It is wonderful to keep a "diary" of our life so we can go back and read about everything that has happened (when I keep it up). It's also been wonderful to meet new friends!

3. What are your two three favorite posts you've written

{great post to know me}

{I was so proud of the party!}

4. What is something you would want to tell someone starting out in the blog world?

Be yourself. 
I'm boring, have no kids, work like a crazy person, and am obsessed with my pets. But I can still blog. I still have things going on in my life. I may not be the most interesting person, but I'm me and I'm happy to have this journal to remember what has been going on in our life.

5. Biggest blogging learning experience you've had?

Not to much... I guess just getting to know the person for who they really are and also know that people are not always who they seem. But you have that in the real world too.

6. Give us three blogs that we need to be following:

This is so hard! There are so many I are a few (more than 3)

Ohio Favorites
The Juice is Worth the Squeeze {always an Ohio girl!}


  1. I totally agree with being yourself! Thanks for linking up!! XOXO

  2. So much fun! I agree with your tips for newbies! 100%! I love that pic of our first meet-up! So many memories!

  3. Love this! Like Shannon, I agree with the newbie tips. I always struggle because it seems like all the blogs I follow have such purpose. Fashion, family, faith, cooking... And mine is a mish-mash.... But then again, I'm kinda a mish-mash. :) Be what you blog!!!

  4. Thanks for the shout out! I'm the same way, Erin- allllll over the place! Hey, maybe we should be proud that well-rounded people??

  5. love your blog, I am right there with you on the "not so newlywed" thing. I still feel like a newlywed even though I got married in 2008! I'm your 100th follower :)
