Friday Featured Blog: Jiggety Jigg

Whenever I see the words "Jiggety Jigg" it makes my brain do a little dance. According to Jenni's subtitle, "If you want minutia and nonsense, you've come to the right spot." When I visit, I don't find too much nonsense, just honest, funny posts about things like "celebrating" a nasty, anonymous comment. And she was most recently listed on MomDot's Top 50 Bloggers list. Along with me, Jenni participates in Wordful Wednesday, over at 7 Clown Circus, which is where I found her blog. No photos here to talk about, but Jenni's sharing a little more about herself and her blog. Enjoy!

What is your blog about?

Jiggety Jigg is pretty much a collection of randomness about my family and I.

Where does your blog title come from?

It's actually part of a nursery rhyme we used to say when I was a little girl! "To market, to market, to buy a fat pig! Home again, home again, Jiggety Jigg"!

When and why did you start your blog?

I started my blog over the summer. I am not even really sure why I did it...but I am so glad that I did!

What would you like to add to your blog in the next year?

I am not sure. I would like to just continue to enjoy writing it and see where it leads!

What are some of your favorite blogs?

Dooce, Sweetney, and Finslippy are my classic favorites! But I have a ton of new favorites...too many to even list!

What is one of your pet peeves about blogs or bloggers?

I don't really have any blog peeves, honestly. Everyone's blog is their own personal space. If you don't like something, you don't have to read, right?

And as far as bloggers go, I have to say I haven't had a single bad experience with anyone. People have been VERY supportive and helpful!

What advice would you have for any new bloggers?

Read A LOT of blogs. And not just to get return comments! Really READ them and get ideas and inspiration. Join some weekly memes and social communities. Make your blog a reflection of you and try to update it often!

What is something that people might not know about you?

Wow. People know A LOT about me! Oh! How about this...before I got a teaching postition, I was a customer service representative for a wig catalog company. I spent my evenings on the phone with old ladies who wanted to know what color I thought would look good on them...

LOL, I didn't see that last answer coming! Thanks so much Jenni, and be sure to click on over to Jiggety Jigg, but then again, you were probably just there!

Jenni Jiggety is one of my favorite bloggers - she always makes me laugh! Thanks for featuring her - and yes, that last answer sure came out of nowhere! Oh to be a fly on the wall when she was trying to sell wigs to little old ladies! LOL!! :)
