Blog Crush......Finally!

Remember my Blog Crush series? Yes, it's finally starting. The first crush comes to us via....somebody (I forgot to ask if she wanted to be anonymous or not) but I'm sure her pick is a crush to many of you. Wait for it..........

It's Johana at The Mercurial Wife! She's only been blogging since February but she's nearing 100 followers for a reason. She's crass (in a good way!) and tells it like it is. She peppers her stories without humor and has quickly become a very enjoyable read. She isn't afraid to say things that other bloggers only wish they could. Like "bitch." Woah that felt good! Or "motherbitcher." Even better!

In order to learn more about the enigma that is Joahna, I asked her some questions, let's get to know her a little better, shall we?

1) Why did you start blogging?
The Mercurial Wife was created on 19 Feb 2010. It's my second blog where I plan on keeping my identity undisclosed to the 'public' as long as I can. My first blog doesn't bear the same restrictions. However, it wasn't satisfying me enough on many levels. My writing wasn't bringing in the number of comments I'd anticipate when I press the 'Publish' button. That would drive me crazy because to be honest, I prefer having 20 and up comments to having more followers who don't participate. I call them passive readers. I want active readers who take part in the discussions. So I thought of starting afresh, with a new anonymous blog and see where it takes me. At the same time, it'd provide me with that personal space where I don't have to think twice before writing what I want. I won't have to look behind my back every time I publish a hate-filled post. The Mercurial Wife gives voice to my unheard thoughts, with no fear of being judged or hurting someone's feelings. The Mercurial Wife allows me being me with no societal or any kind of moral restrictions.

2) People who like________ will like your blog.
Humor and sarcasm

3) Describe your blog in five words
Funny, Simple, True, Entertaining, and Intriguing

4) If you could hang out with one person (living or dead) who would it be?
It would be my husband. He's still alive. (I'm still looking for that perfect murder plan...) If you read my blog then you'll know that he's a workaholic. We don't spend much time together. And when we do, most of the times, it ends in a fight. I miss being his buddy. Being a wife can prove to be tiresome sometimes.

5) If you came with a warning label, what would it say?
High Voltage! Treat with utmost care. Or WARNING! Madly in love with self.

6) Anything else you'd like to tell new readers?
Yes! Visit my blog and subscribe if you like what you read. Participate by leaving comments because I genuinely want to hear what you have to say, even if it's hatred-motivated. Share your links. A bit of self-promotion can never hurt can it? Be curious and check out my awesome followers. Ask me questions. I don't bite. Even if you ask. Oh smile will you? I'm trying to be funny here...STORY. OF. MY. LIFE. (And she's out...)
