Purposeful Pages: August
Hello all! How are you doing on this fine... *checks calendar* Wednesday afternoon? I'm doing exceptionally well,
actually I'm bouncing off walls while doing an insane amount of editing, thank you for asking! ;)
I'm here with a fun, educational, and inspiring link-up hosted by Amanda and Hannah! Be sure to check out their wonderful blogs! Especially if you want to get the details in how YOU can join along with the rest of us semi-crazy
who am I kidding? We're crazy...but crazy AWESOME people. ;)
Here's the link-up questions for this month:
1:What book of the Bible has taught you the most this month?
I would have to say Romans. I've been reading it recently, and it's always brought certain aspects of Christianity to my mind that I've never thought of before. Every time I read it. Without fail. It's an amazing book. :)
2: How would you react if you were in the positions of either Esther, if you’re a girl, or Daniel, if you’re a guy?I feel like I should say the same thing she does...but I really don't know if I could be that brave. I certainly HOPE I would trust God like Ester did. But I honestly don't know how I would react.
3: If you could have a book character for a sibling, who would it be, and what makes you two alike?Oo...that's a really tough question. How can I choose ONE book character? There's a lot of good ones! Probably Anne (from Anne of Green Gables) although we would get into SO MUCH TROUBLE TOGETHER IT'S NOT EVEN FUNNY. Or Beth (from Little Women) because she'd be such a calming influence on my crazy personality. ;) (She'd probably be my parents/siblings choice :P) I'm going to stop now before my answer gets out of hand and you end up with an entire blog post just on different characters I'd want as siblings. ;)
4: If you’re a novelist, answer: How would your main character most likely spend his or her Friday night? If you’re not a novelist, answer: How would you most likely spend your Friday night?Hmm...I'm working on a couple books right now, so I chose the main character of the book I'm currently editing: "The Princess & I".
How would Megan spend her Friday night? Probably either reading to her nephews, practicing with her sword, or visiting with friends.
5: What are the top three books you’re just dying to read?Oh my. THREE? Only THREE? Umm...
Deliver by Tricia Mingerink
All the books my friends have been working on recently. (Yes that counts as only one of the three)
Les Misrables by Victor Hugo
I could name many more...but I will refrain.
6: Can you briefly share the story behind your blog’s name?So originally, I had NO IDEA what I was going to write about on this blog. I knew I would write...but what I was going to write was still undecided. We had a family pow-wow in the living room and my older sisters and Dad helped me come up with a title. At first we were going to have it be "Rebekah's Random Remarks", but that was a little long-winded...not that I have anything against longwinded...but for the sake of snappiness I shortened it to just "Rebekah's Remarks". Because, my name is Rebekah (and no, I didn't misspell it this time...inside joke with those of you who were in my Camp NaNo cabin. B-) and because I knew that whatever I wrote could easily be put under the "Remarks" category.
Not sure how brief that was...but whatever.
7: What do you consider to be your blog’s “branding,” or signature? What sets your blog or social media platform apart from others?Oh goodness. I have no idea! However, I'm the only me...(which is good because I don't think the world could handle another one). I like to use "Cutest blog on the block" templates...but I may change that eventually. That's a really unsatisfactory answer...but there you have it.
Hey all you who are reading this: help me out! What makes my blog different??
8: Who are a few of your favorite bloggers?All the ones I follow. :)
9: If you could go on a road trip of your dreams, where would you go and who would you spend time with?First, I would go around and meet all my blogging friends across the United States...then I would drive across the Atlantic ocean to the British Isles and tour Ireland, Scotland and England. I'd bring anyone who wanted to come! The more the merrier in my opinion! :D
10: Using five words or less, tell a story.Strange things happened to me.
There you have it! Hope you all have a fantastic day, week, month, year etc. :) Pardon me while I return to editing! ;)
