  1. Hmm, I think my blog says that I have two great passions, books and movies. I love graphics and I love making them so perhaps people can tell I’m a visual person. I also hope they can see my personality. That I’m a “say it like it is” kind of person.

    Great post!

  3. Such a fun post! I think I might steal it if that is ok?
    My words are inspiring, expert, dedicated & enthusiastic…can’t say I have ever used them to describe myself lol


  4. Glad you liked it. Of course you can steal it. Luckily for you I’m kind (so I would never refuse another book blogger), organised (so I’ll check to see if you do), dedicated (so I’ll get back to my book now) and inquisitive (so I’ll be curious to read your post).

  5. The grid tells me I’m imaginative, versatile, open minded and focussed and as a start to Saturday morning that makes me very proud and happy. Thank you for the confidence boost just when I needed it!
