10 Questions for YOU

It seems I have a lot of, you could say, survey type questions to ask you guys. Numerous and varied, actually. I am fascinated by behavioral trends and opinions. So I'm just going to go ahead and ask them, if that's alright by you.

No rules, just answer as many as you feel like answering.

1. Top 3 (or more) favorite blogs?
2. Are there any YouTube channels you watch regularly?
3. Are there any Facebook Fan pages you visit regularly?
4. On which social media site do you spend most of your time? What specifically do you use that site for?
5. HAVE YOU SEEN THE NEW SHERLOCK EPISODES BECAUSE I CAN'T EVEN
6. Do you generally prefer more personal or business oriented blog posts?
7. Which magazines do you subscribe to, if any?
8. Do you use Instagram or Vine?
9. What book are you currently reading and where did you hear about it?
10. Friends or Seinfeld?

Don't be shy. I love hearing from you, and would love every visitor to leave me as many answers as they feel comfortable with. Looking forward to seeing what you all have to say!

  1. I'm reading The Given Day by Dennis Lehane and if you only read one book in 2014, it should be this one. It's so wonderful, when I'm done I might even write a review on my blog, which I don't often do.

    Happy New Year.

  3. What a fun post. Okay, here we go:

    1. Top 3 (or more) favorite blogs?
    Too many to list. I generally prefer horror blogs, lifestyle blogs, writers' blogs and blogs about animals.

    2. Are there any YouTube channels you watch regularly?
    No.

    3. Are there any Facebook Fan pages you visit regularly?
    No.

    4. On which social media site do you spend most of your time? What specifically do you use that site for?
    Mainly Facebook, Pinterest and StumbleUpon, but also Twitter and Google+. They're all for personal AND professional use.

    5. HAVE YOU SEEN THE NEW SHERLOCK EPISODES BECAUSE I CAN'T EVEN
    No.

    6. Do you generally prefer more personal or business oriented blog posts?
    Both.

    Mad Movies (a French magazine about horror movies).

    8. Do you use Instagram or Vine?
    No.

    9. What book are you currently reading and where did you hear about it?
    The Doubly by José Sarramago. Last year, I saw the film adaptation at the Sitges Film Festival and it was my favorite film of the year. It was only natural to read the novel too.

    10. Friends or Seinfeld?
    Neither.

  4. Favorite blogs would be tough! I visit so many awesome ones. Social media is easy - blogging. I get Entertainment Weekly and PC Gamer on my iPad. And will always pick Seinfeld.

  7. Twitter is definitely my go-to social media. Yes, I've seen S3:E1 of Sherlock (SQUEE!). I follow Amy Plum's FB fan page religiously. I don't subscribe to magazines (that's what the internet's for!). Friends, always Friends.

  8. 1. Way too hard to pick! I'll just pick... YOU! :D
    2. Yes, it's called Eat Your Kimchi and it's about Korean culture. Not a book youtuber fan.
    3. If someone posts something and I like, I'll respond. I don't specifically go to anyone's pages, but that's becasue I'm following too many. If I was a HUGE fan, I would go and check updates, but I think the best bet is to just post and see how people respond :)
    4. I spend more time on blogger becasue it takes longer, but I like Facebook the best, it's easy to use :)
    5. NOOO!!! I'm going to though, so excited!
    6. Personal :)
    7. None.
    8. I think I'm too old for those ^_^
    9. "Since you Asked" I heard about it from Peggy Eddleman, but I mostly picked it up because it said it was about a Korean American... haha :)
    10. Seinfeld, hands down.

  9. Most don't apply as much to me sadly, but here goes!

    2. JustBSing. I listen to the station for The Piano Guys.
    3. Nope.
    4. Facebook, keeping in touch.
    5. Nope again...
    6. I like both! I guess my preference would depend on the scenario.
    7. None now, but Nat Geo someday.
    8. Neither :p
    9. Emotional Intelligence; my old supervisor recommended it. I'm also rereading Les Mis on the side.
    10. I've always liked both but haven't really watched a ton of either... So I'll have to toss a coin. :-)
