Sunday Social

Sunday Social
We are taking it back to the beginning and giving you another chance to introduce yourself and your blogs!

1. What is the name of your blog? How long have you been blogging?

I've been blogging since 2005, which is a pretty good long stretch.  My blog is called Country Mouse Claire and/or The Country Mouse Tales.

2. Why do you blog?

I blog for a variety of reasons...I blog because I love to write, first and foremost.  The words on the page, the ebb and flow of language, that's the main motivator.  Part of that is recording, too, communicating.  I love sharing about my life, my passions and the people and things I love.  I love meeting people and discussing the matters of the day.

3. What is the first blog you ever followed?

That's a very tough question!  I followed a fair few blogs before I signed up to use GFC at all, so I'd be guessing at best.  However, I do know I've read Christielli, Riot Kitty and Wiwille's blogs since I first started out and I still love them all now!

4. What is your favorite post you wrote in 2012?

I'd probably plump for the post that kicked off my New Year's Ambitions....because that was quite the ride! It also inspired 32 in 32, which I'm really enjoying.  

5. What are your blogging goals for 2013?

First and foremost, to write often, write well, and to engage with the people nice enough to read along!  I'd also love to continue to see my blog grow - it was such fun last year to gain some new followers and write a few guest or sponsored posts.  Writing has always been something I very much enjoy, so this growth and the fact that people like to read what I have to say has been a lovely thing to see!

6. Top 3 favorite blogs to follow?

Haha, I couldn't possibly choose!  I will say that any of the lovely people in my blog list are well worth a gander - such a combination of characters and voices, but a group that never fail to inspire, entertain, or make me think!


  1. 2005! Wow! You've been blogging forever!!

    Stopping by from Sunday Social!!

    Ramblings of a Suburban Mom

    1. Lovely to meet you! Thank you for the sweet comment.

  2. I love your blog name, and would love to live in London someday. And am in slight awe of the fact you've been blogging here since 2005. I've been doing it since 2008, and going through the Sunday Social blogs was starting to feel like one of the oldest bloggers.

    And thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog as well!

    1. Ha, sounds like I'm the old lady of the Sunday Social :) Thank you for your comment - have a great week!

  3. Cheers! I started in 2005 too...can't believe it has been so long.

  4. Eight years! I remember eight years ago life was prety diffrent for me, and in the time I've known you (and this blog) I reckon your life has changed a lot too. It must be so good to look back and see how far you have come!


Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!
