Sunday Social w.14

Sunday Social

I figured why not join in on another Sunday Social Link Up. A great way to get a bit of insomnia out of the way. Click on the button above to join in as well. Here are this week's questions being asked:

1. What is the name of your blog and how did you come up with it?

My blog's name is Let Them Eat Cake. People assume I am a cake freak because of that. However, that is not the case at all. In fact, I HATE cake. I really do. I have never liked cake. So why name my blog this you ask? That's simple. It's all behind my obsession with Marie Antoinette. Since her famous line was "Let Them Eat Cake" even though she actually was truly never quoted saying this, it comes from that. So now you know! I'm a history nerd, what can I say?

2. What do you love the most about blogging?
I love that having a blog can be a real expression. I love that you can put your personality into a design and get so much inspiration from other blogs. Not to mention I never thought I would ever make the friendships I have made through blogging. It has been a really fun and enjoyable thing. I wish i would have started doing this a lot sooner then I did.

3. What are your 2 favorite posts you've written?
It's hard to choose a couple. But I saw these and it brought back some good memories.
BUBBLE STICK {written 10.03.11}
WHAT'S UPSEXY {written 12.11.11}

4. What is something you'd want to tell someone just starting out in blog world?
Well, not that I'm all that much out of the newbie pool. But I see a lot of bloggers start getting hate mail and things and that's just terrible when it makes people want to delete their blog because of others words. I understand because I'm very sensitive. But just remember, you are blogging for you. You write about what you have on your mind and just delete those who obviously seem to have a better time putting you down then worrying about themselves.

5. Biggest blogging learning experience you've had?
Don't think that others would tell you how to run your blog. It's yours, not theirs. If you want a blog that relates to a lot of people, that's wonderful. If you want a blog that goes so extreme people get in heated arguments over your posts, I say that's awesome too. Just blog for you!

6. Give us 3 blogs we NEED to be following that you love.

  1. what a cutie blog!! I totally thought of Marie Antoinette too so don't worry, didn't think you were cake obsessive! Have a great sunday!

  2. Great post as usual Rebecca, I love your reasons for blogging, they're pretty similar to mine, I'm going to have to check these blogs out now!

  3. I KNEW IT! I absolutely knew your blog name came from Marie Antoinette! I loooooooove her too!!!

    I have gotten some hate mail too before. It's not fun and it does hurt. But, lately I realized to not put yourself out there to get that hate..

  4. Rebecca
    I want to say thank you for #4, you are so right and I had it happen to me. I have had so many blog names until I decided I am doing this for me, never mind those haters. I now blog for me and love it.

  5. Have you seen Kirsten Dunst as Marie Antoinette? Great movie!

  6. I like the story behind your blog name, and I was also thinking, in reality it's quite appropriate for a cake-hater, because you say "Let THEM eat cake" and then, since they ate it, you don't have to. Okay, that was weird. I don't eat cake either, but I think we're the minority.

  7. You had me at History nerd. New follower from Mom's Momday Mingle. I love your blogging advice as well, it makes great sense to this newbie.

  8. I love that you named your blog after history! Haha, I also love your pictures. I'm dropping in from Sunday social & I hope you had a great weekend.
