2011 Ultimate Blog Party

Hello There!!! You are probably wondering, “Why is this girl so angry” and “What is the deal with Mondays”?  Well the blog name was a nickname from a co-worker.  I started this blog almost four years ago, and the nickname was given to me a few years before then.  I used to work a schedule with my work days, Friday through Monday.  So Friday was my Monday, and Monday was my Friday.  Does that make sense? Am I confusing you? Well by Monday, I was tired, and somewhat Angry.  And really, it is kinda catchy, right?

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Do you want to know who Julie really is, though?

Angry Julie Collage

I am blogger, which can be a bit narcissistic. I mean really, I am posting stories and pictures about my life. People actually read my ramblings, and they comment.  I guess I am entertaining most of the time.  I also have a pretty cute family.  My kid, well he was born to be a comedian, and someday he will be a high ranking official, you know Class President or something.

Angry Kid

I’m a mom blogger, craft blogger, photo blogger, lifestyle blogger…you name it. It depends on my mood.  Lately, I’ve been creative and a bit of a home decor blogger.  I get bored, and want to redo my entire house sometimes, doesn’t everyone?

But really? I’m a photography gal, an iPhone Queen, and an educated and experienced expert on privacy and personal security for the Internet and Bloggers.  If you have any kind of privacy questions, please feel free to ask.  I spoke at Bloggy Boot Camp on Privacy and wrote an entire post about it.

My life long goal is to get the word “Conferencing” added into Wikipedia and to actually learn how to use my camera properly.  Oh, and to make the “Popular” page on Instagram, one of these days! I have simple goals…

And if you want to get to know me, here are some of my BETTER posts in the past year:

Making Rainbow Cupcakes

Defining Myself

Fear and Parenting

An Extreme Bedroom

Arts and Crafts Caddy

I also host a Wordless Wednesday Link-Up every week, and I’m participating in Project 365: A photograph every day, with my iPhone.

I’m going to leave you with one last comment from my son today, “Daddy, you need to click on that “excited mark” over there.  What is an “excited mark”?  Dude, I think the kid is talking about the exclamation mark.  But really, “excited mark” sounds soo much better!

I can’t wait to check out all of the other blogs linking up!!

Hi Julie! Thanks so much for coming by my blog. I have to be honest I have seen your name pop up a few places and always wanted to know who angry julie was. :) I promise I'm not creepy so no need to bust out your expert privacy/stalker blocking skills on me, mm-kay? Okay. Now that intros are out of the way I think it's safe to say we're going to become awesome friends. Hope so anyway. I can't wait to check out the more of your posts. Jennifer http://alwaysinwonder.com Oh, and peeing on the side of the freeway? Seriously eww.

P.S. Julie, I just clicked on your Clever Girls Collective badge, I keep seeing them and I am curious, I got a bad link, it repeated the link so it looked like this: http://clevergirlscollective.cloverpad.org/http://blog.clevergirlscollective.com/2010/01/join-the-clever-1000.html - thought you would want to know!

I love this post, it is unique in it's warmness and openness which is exactly what you are like in person! I also love these blog-up, parties, hops, etc because I get to check out new blogs. I wish you had been at the Bloggy Boot Camp. Are you going to Blogher?

Stopping by from the UBP11. I love finding other bloggers who love photography! From what I can tell you're a pretty funny gal so I'm putting your blog on my list of "must come visit again" (i.e. I'm at work and not supose to be blog hopping so I'll check you out more later)blogs! The photos of yourself remind me of a 45 POM Project (45 Photos of Me) I'm working on :)

So glad to "meet" you after the fun evening tonight! Would like to point out that I just bought my son the same shoes your son is wearing today--though I think my son (being only 2.5) doesn't currently have the demeanor/humor to be Class President...but he will undoubtedly sweep the "Most Likely to Whine and Go Boneless" category. Look forward to reading more :) Ariella
