20 Fun Facts About My Blog and Me

Posted on: October 18, 2018


Meet Darlene Foster from Darlene Foster’s Blog

All about your BLOG:
Tell us about your lovely BLOG.

  1. What is the name of your blog and how did you decide on your blog name?
    My blog is simply named Darlene Foster’s Blog because I want people to be able to find it easily. My tagline is dreamer of dreams, teller of tales but it no longer shows up under my name and I can’t seem to fix it.
  2. What prompted you to start on this blogging journey?
    My publisher suggested I start a blog when she published my first book in 2010. I’m so glad she did.
  3. To date, what blogging achievement/s are you most proud of?
    My blog is read all over the world and that makes me happy. I’ve made a shed load of friends too which makes me even happier.
  4. How would you describe your own blogging style?
    Natural, friendly and easy to read.
  5. What excites you most about blogging?
    Making new friends always excites me. I love being able to share all the fabulous places I have visited, stories about my amazing family and news about my books.

Hop over and read the rest of the interview where I reveal my thoughts on cucumbers, the sun and confusion.


This interview was posted in June but Esmé had just created a new blog site and I was unable to reblog it at the time. Better late than never!!

You might consider being interviewed by the amazing Esmé yourself.

Another great post, Darlene! I’ve just followed Senior Salon. Sounds like a great place to be.

Yes, it is a great place to be. Glad you enjoyed the interview.

Your blog is a lovely reflection of what I know you to be. Someday I hope to meet you in person to verify – hahaha!

How sweet of you to say! I too hope we can meet one day.xo

Nice interview! I left a comment but I’m not sure if it took… 🙂

Thanks, Marcia. I think Esme has to approve all of the comments for security reasons. It will most likely show up later.

Popping over to read more! Love these posts, Darlene! Makes me love you even more!

Awe!! Thanks so much. Made my day!! xo

Always a pleasure to hear more about you. I had not realized your blog started after your first book.

My second post was about the launch of Amanda in Arabia, June 2010. What a ride this has been. Glad you aren’t bored reading about me. xo

Always an inspiration Darlene!

Your blog mirrors your love of travel, photography and writing. I always feel like I’m traveling with you and seeing things I wouldn’t normally see. And you help kids see the world through Amanda.

Thanks, Patricia. I love sharing my travels which is why I started writing the Amanda Travels series. So pleased you enjoy travelling with me.

Interesting read as always D. I’ve contacted Esme and she was positive enough to send me he questions to complete which I’ve already done. Not sure if our tale will interest or excite, we wait in trepidation 😂😂

That is just awesome! I can’t wait to read your post. I am sure it will be great and introduce more folks to your blog.

I don’t think we want more followers Darlene, just followers who engage more beyond the 1% who currently do!

[…] I love learning new facts about my fav bloggers and this is no different, pop on over and learn a little something new about Darlene via 20 Fun Facts About My Blog and Me […]

Loved knowing more about you, your vibrant personality shines through 🙂

Gosh, thanks!! How sweet of you. xo

It was fun. Glad you enjoyed it.

Super interview, Darlene!

Thanks, Jennie!!

You’re welcome, Darlene! 🙂

I always enjoy looking at the photos you put on of places you’ve visited. x

Thanks, Stevie. I love sharing my pictures. It also gives me a chance to relive my travels and experiences. So pleased you enjoy them.

Great read Darlene! I really must finish mine for Esme…..meanwhile I have shared your fab post on my regular feature Monday Magic – Inspiring Blogs for You! on PainPalsBlog. Claire x

Thank you so much!! I look forward to reading your answers.

Such nice and fun interview, Darlene. I’m new to your blog so this gives me more info about you and your blog. Thanks for sharing your Q&As with us. #seniorsalon

Thanks for your kind comments. Welcome to my blog. So great to have you here!!

loved reading this, Darlene 🙂 Thank you for sharing! Q + A’s are such a great way to get to know other bloggers!

They are the best way to get to know other bloggers! Glad you enjoyed it. xo

loved reading this..Its nice to learn a bit more about you xx

Thanks! Glad I haven´t put everyone to sleep.

Darlene, glad you got a chance to reblog this at last! I remember reading and commenting at the time … a great interview. Hope you’re having a lovely week. xx

Yes, thank you. I do remember you commented at the time. As Esme was still working out the bugs of her new site, it was hard to place a comment so I thought I’d wait and well you know how it goes… Glad I did reblog it as the questions were great and fun to answer. xo

I enjoyed that interview, as I always enjoy the interviews you do. You come across as a very positive person, and I think that’s one of the reasons your blog is so popular and readable. I like what you said about your age and about being an indoor/outdoor person. I’d like to be outside more but the Scottish weather puts me off sometimes, so I can relate to the distinction you made.

I guess there isn’t too much you don’t know about me! Pleased you enjoyed the interview and could relate to some things. I feel like I’ve had a great conversation with you today!

Yes, it’s been nice. 🙂

I agree with you about blogging and the friendships we make over the years.

I have met the most amazing people through blogging! Thanks for being one of them.

Lovely, Darlene, going over to finish.

You’ve got an engaged community here on your blog. I can relate to your feelings on cucumbers. Celery and cucumbers are the only 2 foods I find hard to love.

I have a great blogging community. It is nice to meet another person who doesn’t like cucumbers. Thanks for visiting my blog. xx

Great interview! I loved reading it and I love your blog!

Thanks so much. Pleased you like my blog.

Found you!
