Name That Job #8 (with prizes!)

0

Bloggers and tweeters. You think you know them sort of by what you read on their blogs or in their Twitter streams. You like to tell yourself that if you happen to run into one of them while looking for the match for a shoe in the Target shoe aisle, you’d recognize them right away. And you’d be friends in real life.

This could be true.

This could happen.

(Not the part about finding the matching shoe at Target. That shoe has left town.)

But, do you really know them?

Of course not.

That’s why I came up with “Name That Job” and transform into Bobbie Barker for you. I like being nosey and finding out more about bloggers I have loved reading for a long time and brand new ones, too.

In the past, I have featured 8-10 bloggers each game, which you can find here. This is lots of fun, of course, but the spotlight isn’t as big with that many awesome people in a post. So, I have narrowed it down to 5 each game.

Take a good, long look at the person’s photo in the TV, then try to answer the multiple choice questions on the right. If you need some extra help, take a look at their bio and favorite post. Maybe that will help?

BIO:  Katy Morgan started her blog Katy in a Corner as a way to compile all the evidence her kids will need when they pursue therapy as adults. Her blog is also a place where other not-so-perfect mothers can laugh with and relate to her challenges as a new mom. If you’re into cloth diapering, vegan eating, or free range parenting, Katy’s site will most likely make you want to claw out your retinas. 

Katy is blessed to be married to her high school sweetheart who is an Air Force pilot. Together they have two children, a toddler boy and a baby girl. Their life as a military family is an exciting one. In seven years of marriage, they have moved eight times. Katy is incredibly adept at ripping through packing tape with her teeth.

She envisions herself in the swim up pools with her glass never empty containing a lovely little umbrella and some tropical concoction. Hey, a girl can dream!!
