To make things right, I’m going to link the heck out of this one which features a woman I have yet the pleasure to meet in person, but nevertheless she’s impacted my daily blog reads as well as the lives of my dear friends so Phaedra must be a pretty great individual… and blogger.
Who are you? My name is Phaedra, and I am a Jill of many thingsâ€¦I am a full time student on the verge of graduating with a diploma in professional counseling, with a specialization in addictions. I am also part time baker and a d.j. I play deep and funky house.
Where do you blog (which sites)? I blog from www.phaeds.blogspot.com
Are you originally from Vancouver? No, I hail from Vancouver Island, specifically from a quaint little town known as Port Alberni. I have lived in several other jurisdictions before moving to Vancouver. Places like Prince George and New Orleans, with some stops in between.
Why do you blog? Started out solely as an online journal of sorts. I wanted something to capture my journey of personal growth; itâ€™s trials and tribulations. From time to time I will post wine reviews and other stuff that isnâ€™t necessarily relevant to my inner work. My blog also keeps my out-of-town friends up to date on what is happening in my life.
What is the BEST part of blogging… or if you prefer, the worst? I like that it keeps me real and authentic. I take comfort in the fact that other people can relate to some of the things I am expressing, especially when it comes to personal issues, such as distorted body image. I have also been blessed with meeting some fine individuals who Iâ€™m sure I wouldnâ€™t have met if it werenâ€™t for blogging.
Do you write for yourself, your readers, for Google, for a living? I write for myself; the fact that others read it is a bonus.
Would you ever censor yourself/Do you feel the need to censor yourself? What you read is what you get, baby.
PC, Mac or Speak n’ Spell? Heehee. Speak and Spell. In all seriousness, I have the oldest, most archaic PC ever. I am probably one of the least techy people in the Blogosphere.
If you would like to be featured in the Vancouver Blogger profile series just drop me a line with a link and a bit about your site – thanks!
