Sunday Social 1/13/13: A Reintroduction

Hello, hello!
Welcome back for this week's edition of Sunday Social.
I am linking up with Neely over at A Complete Waste of Makeup.

This Week's Questions:
(These are meant to reintroduce ourselves)

1.  What is the name of your blog?  How long have you been blogging?  
     My blog is called Let Them Eat Paste.  It's a play on "Let them eat cake."  Growing up, my dad always told the stories of how he would eat paste while at school.  This is back when it actually looked good!!  You know, the cap had a stick, it had a goopy, thick consistency, and Adam Sandler made it even more popular in Billy Madison.

    I started this blog 2 1/2 years ago when I first started teaching.  It was meant to document my adventures (and I've had a ton!) but with privacy laws and other things I couldn't tell the stories I wanted to.  Bummer, dude.  Seriously...these kids come up with the best stuff!  I stopped blogging for a loooonnnnngggg time (like 2 years) but was inspired after beginning to follow many blogs over the summer.  I realized that this is MY BLOG and I don't have to write for anyone but me.  I'm not saying I wouldn't love to hit the 100 follower mark eventually, but I haven't found my niche yet.

2.  Why do you blog?
     I blog because I love my life.  I adore being a teacher and hope that comes through in my posts.  Teaching is HARD WORK but amazingly rewarding each and every day.  I also love learning new things and sharing what I learn about them.  I know I am not the first person to ever crochet anything, get a great camera, teach awesome nuggets, love my Handsome Husband, or love cooking, but I'm also not the last.  Someone will read a post and be able to connect with me.  I also blog because I know that I have some great friends and family out there who support me in my blogging adventure because they know I enjoy it.

3.  What is the first blog you ever followed?
     The first blog I ever followed was my cousin Courtney's blog Life and Style: A to Z.  Hers was the only one for a lllllooooonnnngggggg time.  Once I actually started using my Blogger account and following blogs it was The Small Things Blog and From My Grey Desk.  (They are sisters and great bloggers.  I look forward to their posts each and every day.)

4.  What is your favorite post you wrote in 2012?
    I would have to say that I love most of them, but my all-time favorite is Melt, Squish, Sprinkle, YUM! because it was the first post with my new camera and I loved the pictures I was able to take and I felt like a domestic goddess while I was working on it.  

5.  What are your blogging goals for 2013?
     I would like to get to 50 followers.  I know it's just little pictures of people hanging out on my computer screen, but I would like to know that what I love is being loved by others.

6.  What are your top 6 blogs to follow?
     In no particular order:
The question only asks for 6, but I love all the blogs I follow, which is why I follow them!

Next Week's Questions:  A Week of 3's
1.  What are your top 3 favorite kinds of food?
2.  What are the first 3 things you do in the morning?
3.  What are the last 3 things you do at night?
