My lovely friend Catagator pointed me to Becky Jean’s blog Life in Denim and Flip Flops where she has a great way for bloggers participating in BEDA to introduce themselves. So here is my intro for those of you who don’t already know me.
Name: Jennifer or Jen
Where I live: Small town Iowa near Iowa City
Where I call “home”: Scranton, Iowa or Nevada, Iowa, or if I’m dreaming, London
Why I blog: It is a great way to stay in touch with my fellow nerdgirls.
What part of BEDA I’m most excited about: Hopefully I will get much quicker at making blog posts….for some reason it takes me FOREVER to do one post, which is kind of ridiculous. Maybe doing 30 posts in a month will help me get faster.
Why I’m doing BEDA: Because Lindsay is making me 🙂
How I first discovered Maureen Johnson/BEDA: I followed her on Twitter for a wee bit and also stalked her a tiny bit at LeakyCon (she signed my book!!!)
Something other BEDA people might not know about me: I have a birthmark on my knee that is shaped like a tree….or Hawaii depending on how you look at it. Or if you want something less obscure….I am the only children’s librarian at a teeny tiny library.
Another blog I follow: Abby (the) Librarian!!!!
A writer (of any kind) who inspires me: Mo Willems because he is just damn cool at everything he does. He is one of the .0001% of people in the world who truly loves his job and is fantastic at it.
A YouTube channel I love: Hmmmm, I don’t really watch specific YouTube channels…..but I do love funny cat videos!
A favorite quote: “One does not like to generalize about so many people all at once, Mr. Knightly, but you may be sure that men know nothing about their hearts whether they be six and twenty or six and eighty.” from Emma by Jane Austen
