It’s a little over a week until the first Blog On of the year! I did the Blog On Icebreaker post last year but here is this year’s version for all the new people who’re going!
Share a recent picture of you
This photo is the most recent photo I have of me. It’s of the hubby and I on our most recent trip to the cinema (via McDonalds of course!)
Describe yourself in three words
Geek, stationery-addict, Mami
How long have you been blogging and what made you start?
Oh around 15 years or so. Becster.com was first registered January 2003 but I was blogging on someone else’s server before that so it sounds about right. I started back in 2003 when the whole online trading card games kicked off. Ahh I miss those days!
What was the inspiration behind your blog name?
Back in 2003 an online friend referred to me as “Becster” and I just ran with it. 15 years on it’s still going strong!
What is the best thing to come from your blog so far?
The amazing friends I’ve made! Seriously who’d have thought that my little part of the web would’ve lead to getting to know some awesome people from all around the world!
Your most remembered thing from your childhood
Taid. Growing up Taid, was my main man! So many happy memories with him (and the dog!)
Something interesting you might not know about me is . . .
My first language is Welsh. I speak it everyday – with the girls, with family and at work. Both husband and I talk Welsh but we speak English to each other. It’s a weird thing… I tend to stick to the language I first speak to people even if that’s not their/my first language. It’s a habit I can’t break!
Which social media platform best describes your personality and why?
Twitter! It’s open and honest and there’s no filter!!
What is your happy song?
Currently it’s the Guardians Inferno from the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie. This song is currently on repeat on my phone. It’s a shame it’s not a longer song though!
What is your favourite alcoholic drink
Ych! None!! I don’t drink alcohol at all.
What is your favourite cake?
Is ice bun a cake? I’m really into the ice buns at the moment!
What is your favourite takeaway dish?
Chinese is my takeaway of choice – chicken fried rice, curry sauce, chop suey roll and chips! Mmmmm
Where is your dream holiday destination and why?
Oh Australia is top of the list for me!
What would your superhero name be?
I just did one of the superhero name generator and apparently I would be Mrs Sunshine!
If you had a magical power, would you want to have and why?
Teleportation. I’m sick of travelling backwards and forwards to work! Being able to teleport would be awesome!
What one weapon would help you survive a zombie apocalypse?
A solar powered chainsaw… apparently there would be no electric and I need something to sever heads.
If you could send something into space, what would it be?
Peppa Pig – she can piss off into the vacuum that is space.
What would you have on your gravestone?
“Llonydd o’r diwedd” – peace at last.
You make headline news around the world in 2 years time… but for what reason?
“Blogger finally bursts after eating too much Morrisons veggie sushi”
If an EMP wiped out all mechanical forms of transport, how would you get to BlogOn?
My teleportation super power of course! Failing that then I best start walking… NOW!
Right then that’s me… I’m going to Blog On, are you?
