The Sunday Roast

Mama Mia, She Has So Many Talents

This week's interview is with MamaGeek,
who writes the blog What Works For Us.


The first of the standard questions. Why do you blog?

First and foremost, for the community factor. I never imagined to meet and greet so many people through blogging. Secondly, it gives me a photography platform that forces me to practice on a more consistent basis since I always post a photo I took with every post.

What's the story behind your blog name?

Oh, I hate this question. It was the very first thing that came into my mind. In hindsight, I wish I'd named it something else or at least thought about it for more than 3.14 seconds. OY! My blogging voice has changed so much since I first (rather naively) started.

What is the best thing about being a blogger?

The best part about being a blogger, for me, is having a creative outlet to both share and learn from.

What key advice would you give to a newbie blogger?

Blog on your terms (when you want, what you want) and always remember, it's the honesty that keeps 'em coming back.

What is the most significant blog post you've ever read?

If I had to pick only one, I'd pick this - I'm a fan of anything written by Janet.

What is the most significant blog post you've ever written?

Being a whacko for macro, it's a photo I shot: Raindrop Reflections.

Today's Sunday Roast with MamaGeek is the 31st in a weekly series of interviews with bloggers from around the world.

The link to the Raindrop Reflection led me to a "blog not found" page. I think I have seen it before, but I am going to go looking for it again.

Re: link for Raindrop Reflections - go to MamaGeek's and she has a search engine on her blog. Just put "Raindrop Reflections" in her search engine and it comes up.

I remember it now when it got POTD. It left me speechless.
(Quite a feat.)

You got me again. Another to discover and a photographer too. I like the short sharp honest answers. To the point. That photo too of the droplets, wow!

David: Very nice post and I love this photo from the blog. Very nicely done.

MamaGeek said...

David, thank you so much. It is sincerely appreciated. Not just for this, but for all that you do for the blogging community.

You rock. That's that.

OH, I remember that photo of the water droplets on the flowers and the infinite reflections. I saw it months ago. I daresay I will never forget that shot!
