I’m not sure anyone really likes writing their own “About Me” page but I know I like reading other people’s About Me pages. It gives the reader a chance to get to know a blogger.
This blog, Big Bertha’s Adventures Blog represents a variety of my interests: creative writing, photography, HO-scale miniatures, motivational writing and whatever else I can fit into this blog. I’m also very much a fan of using my small platform to proclaim my love for special places, like The Adolphus Hotel in Dallas, historic buildings and buildings/businesses that have gone by the wayside.
I’ve always enjoyed looking at old photos and snapshots at antique stores. I like to think I’m adding to the dialogue with my own photos– but with CONTEXT. I think it’s important to provide context for the photos I post– even if it’s just a location, or an explanation of the feeling/emotion when I took the shot. It gives meaning to the photo. My gratitude to the subscribers who came in because of my nature photography – thank you for sticking with me even though I have deviated from the initial theme.
Frivolous interests include: consuming the greatest beverage known to humanity: The Java Chip Frappuccino. I also like polka dot dresses, I collect chairs (what?), hats, creepy ventriloquist’s dolls and hotel ephemera… to name a few. I am a proud Gym Rat at my local gym and I have an unusual fascination for spiders (what?). More normal activities include scrapbooking but even that takes a strange turn at times.
My ventriloquist’s dolls also have their own Instagram – feel free to support them as well. Seems everyone is joining the social media bandwagon. 😉
