I collected my words,
I'm Areeba, a girl who loves pizza. I have crazy hair and I have a blog.
No just no, this sounds boring!
I'm a food loving girl with a twin sister. I'm a blogger, student and Twitter addict.
Again a no, doesn't sound pretty boring.
My name is Areeba, you can call me Aree. I'm pizza loving girl. I'm a blogger & student.
I gave up. I wrote "I'm a blogger" and ended that battle. But then I thought, hey no! I can do this pretty fine. Although it's damn true that I find myself having 0% "about myself" idea but gotta write something.
"I'm Areeba. A-ree-baah, that's how you could pronounce it. I'm a student & a lifestyle blogger. I've a twin sister and I have crazy hair. I love food, pizza pizza my everyday dream meal. I can talk for hours, I thought of mentioning it as my super quality."
The question is, how hard this question is for me (or us) I hate answering this question when someone would ask me this question. When I was 13 and signed up for another random website, I started typing something like this, I think I have pretty good memory
"I'm Areeba, I like eating zinger burger. I have a twin sister who's my best friend. My zodiac sign is leo. I love strawberries. I want to visit so many countries. I love food. I have no cool nickname."
So the struggle of keeping things real about you without sounding confusing is a tough job. I seriously mean saying this. Like really.
Things are changed. I'm a big kid now with a blog. When I first wrote my about me page on blog, I was so upset. What someone would want to read in an about me page? Like where I'm from? Or what do I like? What do I do? So many questions. I made one, then changed it after a week or so. To be honest, I've changed it 50+ times and the current version of "About Me" is my most favourite. Go on because you're always welcome to check it.
The story doesn't end here. I saw a blogging community site and signed up. They asked another HARD question, "Tell us about your blog", I was near tears.
How will I do this?
I have a lifestyle blog and I write about everything I like.... etc.
My blog is about everything happening in my life. I'd categorize it as a lifestyle blog.
And then something good happened, a blast in my mind. And I got myself typing this,
"I Have A Messy Bun is an anything-lifestyle-everything-awesome blog, that's how I categorize it. I blog for myself, little pleasures, dose of sarcasm and sometimes I make everyone laugh."
Sounds good to me. I'm keeping it.
I will copy and paste it in every blank where it is needed. But I hope I'll get some more creativity someday and I'll be able to add-subtract some words in this statement. Just wait and let the good stuff happen. I don't wonder on this because I personally know many ladies who struggle hard like me to get the right stuff about them while typing about me & my blog thing. It's a awkwardly-normal thing, I guess. And I was going to ask, if I could use my About me in a job interview without getting peeps staring weirdly at me? Ahem ahem, I'm done with it.
How do you do this About me & my blog stuff? Well this is totally crazy.
Today I'm introducing a sweet blogger Mary from Secret Obsession Blog on my blog. Stop and see what she's doing here.
Hiya! I'm Mary and I am a senior college student from the suburbs of the Philippines. I am a twenty year old gal who loves to surf the internet (guilty pleasure!), read, write and stuff. I've been blogging at Secret Obsession for a little over 9 months now and I can't deny that I've been obsessed with it ever since! Hence, the blog name *wink wink. It is where I share pieces of me and my life, as well as my thoughts and anything that strikes my fancy. I hope you do stop by my piece of the internet and say hi! :)
My real name is actually Mary Jeanette. Mary was taken from, of course, Mary - Jesus' mother, while Jeanette means 'gift'. I'm a Pisces girl born on the 11th of March!
I started blogging one day when I saw an online diary/personal blog in Tumblr. I didn't know one can blog in there because I thought it was just for reblogging and posting photos. But when I saw and read that blog, I told myself 'Hey I want to do that too!'. And so it happened - I found a new hobby in blogging! I did it because I too wanted to document my life and share my thoughts like they did.
What's the most wonderful thing about blogging?
The best thing about blogging is not just being able to express yourself to the world, but finding people with the same interests and gaining friends from all over the world in the process. And may I add learning about life and places without moving miles!
What's your biggest goal of 2014
That is to graduate, find a job immediately after that and earn and save money for whatever the future leads me to. :)
Describe yourself in one word.
Nice. Lol. (Oh that's two words! Haha)
One tip that you wanna give to all bloggers out there in bloggyland?
I know that this is a bit too mainstream but to be the best blogger you can be, you have to be the best of yourself. Each of us is different and that difference is what attracts people to us. :)
