Meet the Misfits: Hi, I’m Byn from Bean’s Monkey Business… Getting to Know You, Getting to Know allllll About You…

23 Apr

Meet the Misfits!

Hey guys!  Today I’m doing a little something extra.  I’m part of a group of bloggers called the Misfit Bloggers.  We all met through a SITS 31 Days to a Better Blog challenge that I found through the Blog Frog forums.  Most (if not all) of us don’t really ‘fit’ into your typical blog categories.  

Today you get to meet the misfits!  

Who Am I?  Me?  I’m writing a blog about a purple monkey, for Pete’s sake.  (Who IS this Pete guy, anyway?)  I talk like a cartoon monkey (when I want to, anyway) and I’m random.  Just a little.  Okay, a lot.  And I sing.  A lot.  Here is my intro video for us Misfit Bloggers.  Its just 3 minutes long, go ahead, watch it and get to know the REAL person behind Bean the monkey!

I am married to an amazingly supportive husband, who has not only supported me through a lot of BIG projects because that’s just what I wanted to do, but he has also supported tirelessly for the last 18 years through a lot of struggles with depression/bipolar and other issues (I’m a veritable alphabet soup of issues, I’m telling you).  I love him and appreciate him… and sometimes feel sorry for him.  Yeah, because I’m really REALLY high maintenance.  He says its all worth it, but… eh, I think he’s a little bit biased because he loves me that much.  Oh well, I’ll take it.

What do I do?  I am a puppeteer, I do the voice of Bean for Bean’s Monkey Business, a new children’s educational web series. I am a mom to five kids that I love more than I could have imagined.  They are 11, 14, 15, 16 & 20 at the moment and they are SO freaking entertaining… I will show you with pictures.  Our oldest recently moved away from home and out of state, so she wasn’t here last night when we took our epic spontaneous family night at the park.  Have I mentioned that my family is super competitive?

Why do I blog?  To share my show and so much of what I’ve learned raising and homeschooling my five kids.  I loved doing projects and learning with them when they were little, and I love sharing that with the new ‘little ones’ without having to have more kids myself!  I’m going to turn into an internet Grandma!

Misfit Monday Blog Hop

Just a few of the "Misfits"

A few of my Fellow Misfits:

  • Cari from Nighlon writes… well, I would call it a pink sparkly techie blog.  She’s probably the last person I’d expect to be a techie geek, but that lady knows her business, glittery stillettos or not!  

There are more of us, but I’m going to stop there for today.  

Each week I’ll highlight a few of my friends so you can check them out!

I had a hard time condensing things down.  How do you introduce yourself?  Tell me a little bit about YOU!  If you blog, please leave a link to your blog in the comments and tell us a little about your blog so maybe we can all make some new friends.
