FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions (for all you non-acronym speaking types)

Q: Why is the blog titled “Gone With the Summer”?

A: My blog is actually named after the 1939 classic, Gone With the Wind. I chose to use a spin off of GWTW because it’s not only my favorite movie of all time, but because it truly is a timeless classic. Other contenders included “My Life is Summer” and “Sarah Says Summer”.

Q: What made you want to write a blog?

A: I was inspired to start writing about my adventures mainly just because of looking at other blogs and thinking, “Hey, I could do this!” I’ve also just always really liked writing and sharing my experiences with other people, and I knew this would be a great way to keep my mind sharp over summer as well. (No, my teachers didn’t bribe me to say that.)

Q: You mention you’ve moved a lot… where have you lived?

  • Tacoma, WA
  • Boise, ID
  • Lisbon, ND
  • Litchfield, MN
  • West Fargo, ND
  • (undisclosed small town), MN
  • (current town), FL

The grand total: 5 states, 7 cities, 6 moves. Trust me, it is every bit as glamorous as it sounds.

Q: I want to start a bucket list and/or blog too! Can I use some of your ideas?

A: Absolutely! A lot of my list items came from researching other blogs and bucket lists in the first place. You don’t need to ask for permission, but remember to give credit where credit is due, which goes for any site you borrow from! (:
