Friend 2 Friend

Hey blog pals…. okay, so I’m going to try something a smidge different and want you to please tell me what you like better as far as presentation.  I am getting super annoyed by the table and the font being so fuzzy one week and clear the next and I am shakin’ it up a bit to see if this method might work?  This is for ya’ll, so you tell me!

JJ's Friend 2 Friend I am excited to introduce you all to two cute gals who I thought were a great match up!! They’re both young, hip and fun!! Jill has just recently started a give away because she made it to 50 followers and I was just noticing how Jodie has also captured 50 followers!! Way to go ya’ll!!
Jill vs JodieOkay girls, let’s talk!!

How old are you?
27 (actually 28, but I chose not to go up in age this year)
Jodie: I’m 25
Where do you live?
A small town in Quebec, Canada
Jodie: Oklahoma
Are you married?
Jill & Jodie
:  Nope! Fabulously single
Do you have children?
No, but I hope to some day!
Jodie: Negative, Ghost Rider  (I’ll add “The Pattern is Full”<—Top gun baby!)
What is your job?
I’m the office Administrator at a Sod Farm
Jodie: Chamber of Commerce Director in my local town.
When did you start blogging?
September 2006
Jodie: January 2011
How would you describe your blog?
I’ve recently determined, with the help
of some bloggy friends, that I’m a “life blogger”. At Jill’s World, you’ll find stories about my family and friends, crazy little situations I find myself in, along with some chatter on my favourite TV shows, my favourite hockey team, my favourite music, along with a smattering of my favourite linky parties. I blog about whatever my little heart desires, and it makes me so happy to know there are people out there who are actually interested enough to read it!!
Jodie:  The best way to describe my blog... it has become a delicious smorgasbord.  I talk a little about everything! 
Do you run your own business? Website?
Jill: No, I’m afraid I have nothing to sell!
Jodie: No
What comment annoys you the most?
I haven’t yet had a comment that annoys me, although I do wish everyone would enable their email.  I often want to connect with someone who has left a comment, and I’m always disappointed when I realize their email isn’t enabled.
Jodie: I have not received any annoying ones on mine... but on others... I dislike when someone leaves something negative or try to be little someone. 
If you could give advice for a novice blogger, what would this be?
Stay true to you!  Don’t bother trying to copy someone’s style or humour.  Let your own creative juices flow, and be proud of your own little corner of cyberspace
Jodie: Have fun and write about what you want to write! If you're having fun and expressing yourself, that's what matters!
Have you ever been apart of a blog swap? Success or Flop?
I have not, but I’m keeping my eyes peeled for a good one to take part in!  I always figured my location north of the border would be a problem for shipping, but I’ve heard of other of my fellow Canadian bloggers who have done it, so I want to try too!
Jodie: I have not been apart of a blog swap. I would love to one day! 
What makes you click to ‘follow’ a blog?
I try to follow back all of my own followers.  But mainly, I want to be entertained.  Make me laugh.  I don’t care if you’re a mommy blogger or a fashion blogger or a cat blogger.  If what you write entertains me, I’m in.
Jodie: I have a wide range of blogs I follow. I love a blog that is witty, & fun! Anything to make me smile!! Oh, and pictures! Love pictures!
What is the biggest turn off about a blog?
Some of them are just too cluttered, you know?  I like a nice, easy-to-follow layout, without too many ads.  I’ve struggled with this myself – there are so many gadget possibilities! – so I prefer when they’re kept off to one side, out of the way unless I choose to check ‘em out.
Jodie: When you go to a blog that has auto music playing... loudly!! Half the time it gives me a heart attack because I'm not expecting it!! 
What’s your favorite blog topic to write about?
I don’t know that I have one particular topic that I could consider a “favourite”.  It’s just whatever is moving me on that particular day!  I love to write about hockey, my favourite TV shows, my family and friends…little stories that I think are amusing and want to share.  So a bit of this & that!
Jodie: Movie & book reviews,  and silly stuff that goes in my life. 

Thanks gals!! Always great to get to know you a little better!!
Please stop by and show them some love!! These could be your newest Blog BFF!!

I completely agree with Jodie about the music! The other day I didn't realize my speakers were on at work and went in to a blog (shhh) and it started blaring some song. The whole office was like ... What was that? ... UHM, nothing! :)

I love this format better as well! :)

Is easier to read this way, though the side by side was cool. Another great matchup.

I thought this was a great match-up too. I loved the advice about staying true to you and having fun.

I thought your old format worked great, but I think I like this one even better. :)

Impulsive Addict said...

I have read BOTH of these girls! You know I love my Oklahoma girls. I need to get back over to their pages. Since I've been out of the blogging world for a while (Thank you AT&T) I have a lot of ground to cover!

Have a fabulous Friday my friend!

Oh...I like this layout but I think I like the other layout just a little bit better. What do you think?
