Welcome to Behind the Blogs, where we take a moment to get to know the bloggers in the Scribnia Community on a more personal level. We’ve read their words, but now it’s time to learn a little bit about the person behind the keyboard.
Today’s interview is with Johana Hill who writes for The Mercurial Wife. Johanna is a 20 something blogger that discusses her day to day experiences as a “stay-at-home-wife”, shares some stories involving “honey lips”, and mixes in random jokes, blog tips, and whatever else she can come up with.
As you can see from her picture over there, she does not reveal her true identity. That’s alright, we’re going to poke and prod to see what we can learn about the blogger behind this blog.
Well, lets get to know Johana a little bit better!
1. Where is your favorite place to go to write, read or think?
When I’m in the bathroom! It may sound funny to some but that’s where I let my mind go, or sometimes when I’m sitting outside on the porch in the mornings. Also, when I’m alone at night-time, my creative juices kick up then.
2. What was your life like growing up?
Fun! I never took anything serious until I left home to pursue my studies overseas. My mother always tells me, “Remember, there’s always a way out.” And I think I lived by that. And still do. So I tend not to worry about petty stuff. Que sera sera. Right?
3. How do you continue to find inspiration and ideas for blog posts?
My husband inspires me. Things he does, stuff he says, the fights, the lovemaking, the comfortable silence between him and I while enjoying each other’s company…
4. Who are your biggest inspirations in life?
My parents. I envy their money-saving abilities. Ha!
5. How do you define success? (I love this answer)
Success to me is like cooking good food, and even if you don’t feel like eating it afterwards, you feel happy seeing the content and satisfied expression on the faces of those who do.
6. What is the biggest challenge you face in your life today?
Trying to become a mother. I love babies. I want babies. But then, I think of all the responsibilities having a baby brings to the table and I feel defeated.
7. What are 5 things you want to do before you die?
Skydiving, own a library, go to Australia, Egypt, and Peru, make my parents proud and become a millionaire!
8. What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned since you started blogging? ( REALLY love this answer)
Nobody cares until you start caring.
9) What do your friends and family think about your blog?
My blog is anonymous. My husband and best friend know about The Mercurial Wife, plus a few. As far as I know, they like it! ;p
Thanks so much for sharing your story with us Johana. Keep up the great work and good luck making babies ^_^.
