Blogger of the Week: Janette the Jongleur

Hey guys!
Today we have the wonderful Janette, who is Blog of the Week, guest posting! She and I have been blog friends since the beginning... of my blogging career anyway, and what a great bloggy friend she is!! She always has awesome photos, awesome collages, and always makes me laugh. :) So read and enjoy her guest post, then hop on over to her blog and say hello!

***

A big warm hello from one Gentri-an to many! Hiiii! My name is Janette and I’m the proud owner of a little lifestyle blog aptly titled Janette the Jongleur. (it sounds a lot better if say it with a French accent.) Anywho, today I’m here in Gentri-land as Blogger of the Week! WOW! How did that happen? What an honor! I’m pretty ecstatic as witnessed by the amount of exclamations at the end of this sentence!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anywho, I’m here to tell you a little bit about who I am and what you can find over in my corner of Blogger. Buuut, I kind of don’t want to do that. Cause I’m a rebel in subtle ways. Instead, I’m going to tell you all the things I’m NOT so you can get a better feel of who I AM. Does that make any sense??? Didn’t think so.... Onward!
1. I am not a crafter/DIYer/handmade maven I refuse to make anything that takes longer than 15 minutes from start to finish. I’m lazy. And I hate buying supplies I’ll only use once. And frankly, I have a problem with not finishing things I start. Character flaw, I know.

2. I am not a fashion blogger. I don’t think my style is blogworthy. I’m an outfit repeater and will wear the same kind of outfit all week. And that’s okay by me. Also, I don’t own a tripod or remote for my camera. So while I do sometimes have an outfit post, they stress me out and are more trouble then they’re worth. I rather create fashion and style boards via Polyvore and whatnot...

3. I am not a writer, so my posts tend to be on the short side (unless I’ve got something funny to share...like the time I killed a spider with mah tush.) and sometimes random. Instead I have pictures and collages to compensate for my lack of verbage. Lots of pictures!

4.  I am not an unavailable and impersonal blogger who never writes back. I try my best to keep up with comments, emails, tweets, etc. I follow back people who follow my blog. Not for the sake of numbers or cause you may like me better, but because I want to form genuine relationships with nice folk. Why? Cause they’re the best! I’ve made some fantastic friendlies over the past year that I’ve been blogging. I’m truly grateful :-)

5. I’m not a spring chicken. I’m a twenty-something blogger, with a husband (AKA Lovey), no babies (yet!) and a photography side business. (And by twenty-something I mean I’m somewhere between 24 and 29.99999) ;-)
Well, Gentrians, there you have it. Thanks for reading my guest post and please feel free to visit my blog on all days ending with “y”. And thanks again Gentri for this happy pleasure of being Blogger of the Week! That's going on my resume. No lie!
