Sunday Social

I'm linking up with Neely and Ashley (a little late) for the first Sunday Social!

How did you come up with your blog name? My dad gave me the nickname Jodi Bean when I was very little.  When it came time to name my MS Walk Team it was an easy decision to name it The Bean Team.  I initially started my blog to share my journey with MS so it just seemed like a good fit to call it Jodi Bean's Blog.

What is your favorite thing about blogging? My favorite thing is that it is like a scrapbook of my life.  I use to be a HUGE scrapbooker and when I stopped due to a number of reasons I was really sad that I didn't have that outlet and that I wouldn't have the keepsakes.  Blogging came at a great time for me and has proven to be an awesome replacement for scrapbooking!  I also love that I have "met" so many friends through blogging.  I didn't expect that at all but have found it so fun.

What is one thing you have discovered through blogging and now can't live without? I can't pick just one. . . blogging has introduced me to so many amazing products. . . bloggers give the best endorsements!  I love Pssssst Dry Shampoo which I learned about from a blogger.  And not really a product but the Hunger Games books which I never would have read if it wasn't for bloggers. . . oh and twitter, pinterest and instagram of course!  

Facebook or Twitter and why? I can't really choose one.  I like both for different reasons.  Facebook I use mostly for my real life friends and family.  It is a good way to keep in touch with a lot of people.  Twitter I use for all of my blog friends and I love that it has made blogging friendships even stronger.

If one celebrity read your blog who would you want it to be and why?  I really have no idea.  I'm not that into celebrities.  Don't get me wrong I love to watch Access Hollywood and read People but I wouldn't really care or think that anyone famous would be interested in reading my blog!  

What is something you want people to know about your blog?  My blog is random!  It started out as a place for me to share my journey living with MS but has developed into so much more.  I like that I can show that living with MS can still be an amazing life filled with vacations, family and friends.  Life hasn't stopped just b/c I have MS and I want people to see that when they read my blog.


  1. I'm with you-- I couldn't think of a celebrity for that question... And I always thought "Jodi Bean" was because you were from Boston! This is why I love these things-- I always learn something new. :)

  2. I love your reason for starting blogging. Pretty similar to min, although I still scrapbook too, when I have the time! :)
