Lisa: how much time do youhave?
Jamie: until 8 when grey's anatomy starts hahah
Lisa: I didn't know that was back on. I'm so behind.
Jamie: it's only like three episodes in so you can totally catch up
Lisa: Okay. that wasn't the start.
Lisa: or should it be?
Lisa: Should this be super casual like, you're a guest on the late night show or something?
Lisa: and we end up talking about your recent break up instead of your new perfume or whatever?
Jamie: haha sure, jay leno mode or something
Jamie: but for the record, my new perfume is AMAZING
Lisa: yeah, haha. And I'll be all "why don't you ever wear underwear, COME ON" and you'll be like"Lise, I think we were going to talk about my new movie"
Lisa: Okay. So you blog at OhHowLovely.net. How long have you been blogging?
Jamie: well, started blogging on livejournal before i even knew it was "blogging" back in like 2002ish?
Jamie: and last year, i moved to wordpress
Jamie: and haven't looked back!
Lisa: Yeah, livejournal was the worst
Lisa: What got you started back in 2002?
Jamie: i'm really not sure. i knew a lot of people who had them and i figured why not? i was a freshman at DePaul and went to tons of shows and wrote about how annoying my roommated was
Jamie: i was totally convinced she was trying to be Jamie 2.0
Lisa: Did your roommate ever find the blog?
Jamie: i think she read it but once I started writing about her, it definitely became friends only!
Lisa: Who is the most awkward person that reads your blog.
Lisa: That question was poorly phrased.
Lisa: I mean like... somebody that reads your blog that you'd rather they didn't. Mothers, ex boyfriends, things like that
Jamie: well my boyfriend reads my blog and has from the start so i can't really write about our relationship much.
Jamie: well i guess i could
Jamie: but we dont really have problems or drama that i would be airing out, you know?
Jamie: other than him, nobody really. unless, people i know found it and just haven't told me!
Lisa: You pretty much blog once a day, right? Has it always been like that?
Jamie: when i started on WP, i'd blog at least once a day if not more. it was right around NaBloPoMo too so i"had" to
Jamie: and i felt like it was such a chore hahah and that i never knew what to write about
Jamie: but now, it's pretty much once a day.
Lisa: You have a few blogs, right? A shopping blog, a blog with a few other writers...
Jamie: oh god, yes. i'm all over the place right now. i'm probably totally annoying when i ask people to go read my posts elsewhere because there is too many
Jamie: but yes, i have my shopping blog, www.ohhowlovely.net/shops which is basically me being mad i'm not crafty
Jamie: so i'm forced to buy and covet cute stuff other people make that i can't
www.ummnowwhat.com is a blog with Brandy, Jess Writes, Princess Pointful, Chelsea Talks Smack and myself talking about what's it like being a 20something and things that we have dealt with
Jamie: i've sucked at updating thatone lately, i'm such a slacker
Jamie: i'm contribute to whosyourdachsund.com about my little fat wiener dog, Winston
Jamie: and lastly, I write about fashion and style for www.ronebreak.com
Lisa: That's lots of writing!
Lisa: Would you call yourself a writer?
Jamie: I KNOW!
Jamie: im a total slacker lately though
Jamie: i don't know if i'd call myself a writer. i think of it as something i aspire to be
Jamie: but right now, i just write
Lisa: You've been around 20sbfor a long time
Lisa: You even won an award back last January
Lisa: "most likeable"
Lisa: how did that feel?
Jamie: first off, i love 20SB. I'm so glad I ended up finding it. As for the award, I was really shocked!
Jamie: i was so new to 20SB
Jamie: and the others that were nominated were much more well known and just awesome. i really thought i had no chance
Jamie: it was a great feeling though. i was so excited!
Lisa: Describe your blog in 10 words
Jamie: oh gosh, that's hard! haha okay
Jamie: 10 random words? let's see
Jamie: random, silly, whiny, puppies, bad television
Jamie: that's a phrase haha
Jamie: but there is a lot of it on myblog
Jamie: fashion, shopping
Jamie: i really don't know, my blog is really random. im not a niche blog so it's just kind of everything!
Lisa: Is there anything else you want to talk about? Or anything you want to say to the 20sb community at large?
Jamie: im just really grateful i found the 20sb community. i'm amazed at how it's grown and i continue to be inspired by everyone. i've found so many great blogs and made so many friends, in real life and online friends from this community
Jamie: it's just a great bunch of people!
Jamie: im officially the most boring interview ever haha
Lisa: No, totally not!
Lisa: Okay, I guess let's wrap up, though
Lisa: Congrats on being featured blogger!
Lisa: Thanks for your time, and enjoy Grey's!
Jamie: thank you lisa!
