It's been nearly three years since I started this blog. Not too long after, I wrote the Not-So-Frequently Asked Questions, and after all this time, I figured it's time to do them again. Quite a few things have changed. Many, on the other hand, have not. So, F.A.Q.'s, take TWO!
Q. Are you still bored?
A. I'm still writing, so duh! Of course!
Q. Is this a Christian blog?
A. Well, no. It’s my blog. My brother describes it as a “curious mix of the sacred and profane”. My husband describes it as an “entertaining mix of spirituality and current events." Since I am a Christian, many of my posts reflect that fact. But I also write about relationships, tacky reality shows, fashion, news and culture. It’s basically a hodgepodge of my many crazed thoughts.
Q. If you’re a Christian, what’s with the posts about "The Wire", cursing or R&B singers? That’s not very Christian…
A. Neither is your question, Judgey McJudgey pants. Ok, seriously, perhaps you have a point. I just don’t agree with it. As mentioned above, this isn’t a Christian blog, but is written by a committed follower of Christ. If you find my mix of Scripture and the secular offensive, allow me to recommend to you a few good sites like Relevant, Crosswalk or the Christian Research Institute.
Q. What kind of Christian are you, anyway?
A. First and foremost, my identity as a Christian is in Christ. As for my "brand" so to say, as of last year, I'm Anglican/Episcopalian. However, I was raised Oneness Pentecostal, attended schools aligned with the Assemblies of God, and spent five years in a non-denominational church chock full of various ministries, small groups and such.
Q. Why don’t you write everyday? Or at least every other day?
A. Guess I'm not that bored. No, it's because I'm pretty busy in real life. I'm married, have a baby girl, blog here, here and am trying to get this going. I also have an autoimmune disease that requires dedicated time for treatment, am involved in church, love to read, blah blah blah. But...
Q. Can I submit something?
A. If you’re interested in being my guest, email me at email@example.com. That will definitely help make this blog a daily thing.
Q. Your last name is... um, interesting. What's the origin?
A. Yeah, people are scared to say it. My maiden name was the less-butchered "Flemming", but I said "I do" to K and his last name, which is of Portuguese origin. It's not so unique in various parts of the Caribbean (where K is from, Brazil or Angola.
Q. Where's your blog roll?
A. I don't have one. But you check out the blogs I read here.
Have more burning questions? Then I might have the cooling answers! Just email me or leave a comment!
