Underdogs, there are always more questions out there than answers. Sometimes the best way to learn about a person is to answer some deep questions. I have done this around a year ago, so I thought I would try this again. If you haven’t seen that, take a look at the post here. http://www.andtheunderdogwins.com/surprise-saturday-25-questions/ These questions were picked at random via social media, Pinterest, and emails that people want answered! I hope that when you come to this blog, that you are entertained and enjoy what you are reading. Sometimes, you want to know a little more about me, so this is a start. If you have questions that you would like answered, email or comment below and enjoy this session of 20 Questions.
1. Marvel or DC?
This is not an easy answer because I love both. However, I can say that I was a DC kid, and a Marvel adult. While I love both of them, I have just a bit more love for Marvel because of Spiderman.
Again, all of them, but here is my preference list. Keep in mind this is being written before Jodie Whittaker starts as the 13th Doctor. Here is my current order: David Tennant, Peter Capaldi, Tom Baker, Matt Smith, Sylvester McCoy, and an honorable mention to the War Doctor himself, John Hurt.
3.What is a fact about yourself that you hardly share?
That I am a functioning dyslexic and wasn’t diagnosed until I was 18 years old. I slipped through the cracks of my school and I was convinced that I was stupid until I got some help. I excelled at college once I finally got the help that I needed..
4.What fictional character would you most like to be?
Wow, that’s like asking what my favorite limb is on my body. I can’t pick one.
5. Name 3 hobbies that you have:
Reading, Writing, Making Bath Bombs
6.What are some of your favorite places?
Hands down to travel is London, Paris, Chicago, Savannah, and more. Otherwise, my favorite places is with the people that I love.
7. What is your current favorite movies?
Right now, I absolutely loved, “Thor: Ragnarok.” I want to watch it right now!
8.Why did I start my blog?
It was after my friend, Laurie asked me to start writing one. She always enjoyed hearing my conspiracy theories, and my love of literature. She said it would be an excellent idea to try, and she finally talked me into trying it out!
9.What are my favorite blog posts?
I love all of them for various reasons because it records time, and who I was at the moment. However, I am most proud of my “Saved by the Bell: Illuminati” http://www.andtheunderdogwins.com/saved-bell-illuminate/
Plus my series on Tupac: http://www.andtheunderdogwins.com/tupac-lies-part-3/
10. What do you think of Marvel TV series Vs. Marvel Movies?
I think there is room for all of them. I loved Agents of Shield, but I got so busy, I couldn’t watch it. I’m working on catching up on Netflix. I LOVE Jessica Jones and I’m one of the few people who really enjoyed Iron Fist. As much as I like Daredevil, it is hard to watch due to the excess violence. I thought the Defenders was excellent and I’m looking forward to the next season. Now, the not official part of Marvel TV, I have not seen the X Men TV show yet, but I will eventually try it out. I think these are just as good as the movies, just different.
11.What advice to you have for bloggers?
I don’t have much since I don’t consider myself a success yet. However, stay true to yourself. Get your own domain and invest in a good host. If you can, invest in an good email address as well. Don’t rely on free email address because they look less professional. . Realize that your first, or even fifth blog may not be enough to start making you money, or gain you an audience, but you have to be willing to try! Blogging changes every day so keep up on all social media platforms and learn how to use them!
12. Who is your greatest influence?
This is hard because I have 2. First is my Mom. She survived through some very horrible things, yet she still is here and fighting! The second is my best friend who is battling cancer for the 6th time in less than 4 years. She is my hero. There is literally no one else who can be as brave as her, facing all that she had to, with such grace and dignity.
13 What is the most frustrating part of blogging?
Tech issues are the big one since I’m by no means an expert. The second is working really hard for each and every blog but maybe not getting any audience interaction, shares, or comments.
14. What is a place you always try to avoid?
The Grocery Store, I seriously hate it and have gotten my shopping down as fast as possible down to an art.
15. Name one thing you like about your age right now.
I have honestly gotten to the point where I understand who is important in my life, and who is toxic. Those people have been let go. While there are moments that it is hard, I am a much better person without the weight of their hands around my neck.
16. What blogging equipment do use?
I have a very old and tiny HP laptop that hardly does the job. One of my goals is to get a new laptop in the next year. I have my Samsung Cell phone that I use for all my photos. I also use a good old fashioned note book and pens for most of my ideas. Always have a notebook and a pen!
17. What is on your playlist right now?
Great question. I’m about ready to do a detailed 90’s playlist. Right now, I’m listening to Pink.
18.What are 3 things that you want to change about your life?
I would love to get better quality sleep. I would like to be more healthy. I would also like to find that special someone.
19. If you could travel in time, where would you go?
I would go to Greenwich Village in the 1960’s.
20. Favorite Conspiracy Theory?
It’s hard to pick one, but the ones that started it all for me are Amelia Earhart (part of the reason my dog’s middle name is Amelia) and the Bermuda Triangle.
