Featured Blogger Friday(3/26)-JamericanSpice

Man have I been a busy little college bee over here! I missed the last two or so days, but I knew I had to bring you your dose of Featured Blogger Friday this week!

What kind of blogger would I be if I missed that!?

Today we have the very beautiful Colette (I love, love, love her name!!) from JamericanSpice :)

Now, Colette is a fairly new blogger to me, so this is an especially great treat because I get to learn a little more about her along with all of you!


Q. What’s your name and blog? What other information would you like to share?


My name is Colette. Beautiful French name, huh? I still have no idea how my mother came up with it but I love it! I think I should ask her :) I am SAHM of two children: A little girl who just turned three and a boy who will turn five in the next two months! I hope to adopt two children into our family and also to have more biological children. I am very shy but if put into situations where I need to speak up and lead, I will have no problem outwardly. I love to dance and I love music. I can't have a favorite song or artist because I love such a wide variety of music. When I grow up I want to be a dancer and a diplomat.

My blog's name is JamericanSpice.


Q. Why did you choose that name for your blog?

I wanted to join both my cultures. I choose part of the word for my birth country 'Jamaica' and part from my home country 'America' and added a little spice representing the me in it all. Hence 'JamericanSpice.'


Q. Why did you start blogging?

I wanted to start writing about my life in journal form because someone told me it would help in my healing, but alas, my blog is now wide open and I find it hard to share so much of the raw details of my life growing up without parents in the orphanages in my country. I still might do it, but it's taking some thought. It's easier to write these things being obscured.


Q. What kind of stuff do you cover with your blog? Is there a specific genre you write about or is the sky the limit?

That's where the spice comes in. I like to share a little bit of everything and so I don't have a specific genre. I resist the constant barrage of articles that tells me that this is how I should run my blog or I'm not a success if I'm not into this or that or have that domain etc. I allow myself to blog freely.


Q. What is one must read post that you have written {Include Link}?

Hmm, I'll have to go check :)
I did and these are a few of the ones that means the most to
me.

These are my favorite and most read:

Q. Name one thing you love about your blogging job.

I do it on my own time and I get to meet some wonderful people from all over the world! I couldn't get to travel to so many places otherwise.


Q. Name one thing you’re not quite fond of about your blogging job.

Sometimes I don't get to visit everyone the same day or week and so it get's stretched out but I still save every comment so that I can return visits and share the love. I wish I was sorta super person so that I could return visits and comments on time, but there are so many people that it's hard to do that at all.


Q. What’s one random fact about you?

I won a dance competition at a club once :) I was first out of 30 people.


Q. Inspiration comes in many forms for different people. What inspires you?

Music has a way of inspiring me. There's always a language in music that is good for any situation that I'm going through.


Q. Where else can we find you(Personal Website, Etsy Shop, Twitter, Facebook, Etc.)?

It seems I am so connected now. *laughs*. You can always find me at these places:

Awesome feature!

I'm waving back at y'all.

Thank you for featuring me darling. It's an honor to be spotlighted over here!

I must tell all my friends on Monday mingle!

It was weird reading what I wrote about me. I don't always think I write things sensibly.

Thank you sweet woman :)

Have a fabulous weekend!
