Because one is never enough

I bring you the first international interview of Ellen, reigning royal of The Reign of Ellen. Ellen resides at the very top of my blogroll for a reason: she's an absolute MUST READ. I can't even remember how I discovered her blog, it's been so long since I've been reading her, but I've been a member of her court for a long time. I love Ellen because she's got serious angst, just like me. She thinks things through on her blog, often asking for guidance on very controversial topics. Ellen makes you think, but she's also hilariously funny, snarky, and so loving towards her family. This Arkansas wife and mother isn't just a great writer, she's an illustrator and often includes funny cartoons in her blog. Even her blog design depicts the many faces of Ellen. And she writes books. Insightful books about Depression and Jesus and Cats. Books you can download. That are illustrated by Ellen. Can you go wrong with that?

So, without further ado (I've always wanted to say that on my blog!), I bring you Queen Ellen:

What is the most exhausting part of blogging?

Writing out answers to questions from pushy Boston mothers of twins (heh heh just kidding)...

Responding to emails.

What information do you leave off your blog (politics, religion, sex)

Politics and sex. A) I don't want to alienate my readers and B) my mother reads my blog.

Have you met any bloggers in real life, and what was your reaction?

No. I almost met Secret Agent Jo in California but I couldn't squeeze it in. I regret not making the time. I think that we probably would have become real world friends.

What is the most controversial post you've ever written?

Probably the one about letting Anna cry-it-out. Unfortunately, I lost a queen over that one.

What blogs do you read daily, no matter what else is happening in your life.

I read quite a few every day, but I'm not much of a commenter unless the mood particularly strikes me. If I only have a few minutes then I read Margalit's wondrous blog (I'm not just saying that; I really do read you... because you are witty and insightful), So Close by Tertia,The Naked Ovary by Karen, Secret Agent Josephine by Brenda, Wasted Birth Control by Cecily and A Little Pregnant by Julie.

Yeah, I'm still stuck in infertility blog land. I also always read Perez Hilton, even though I know I shouldn't. It's just nasty celebrity gossip. But it's seriously addictive.
I also usually take a quick glance through my friends and family's blogs, except that most of them rarely write. Sort of obligatory daily clicks.

Please include a photo with a part of yourself and tell me why you chose that particular part to describe you.

[I will try to have Jason send you a photo later...]

Thank you Ellen, and we look forward to that photo.

Now, I'm going to tag a few folks, but if you're not here and you want to interview a friend, please go for it!
