I forgot to sort of explain Formspring. Those people like me (dorks, I know) who spend a lot of time reading blogs will be familiar with it, most likely.
My Formspring is a place where you can go and ask any question you want. If you sign up for Formspring, you can choose to have it display your name so I know it was you who asked the question, or you can ask anonymously. If you do not sign up for your own Formspring, your question will show up anonymous.
I see the question, and who asked if (if you requested that it show me it was you) and I can decide whether or not to answer. It's that simple.
I like Formspring because it can be fun, and it can be a good way to get to know a friend/blogger. I read Mandy/OMGmom's Formspring as well as Jenna/ThatWife's Formspring, as I really enjoying read both of their blogs; I think they're really interesting gals with very differing points of view. This way I can read more about that, see what other readers are wondering, and ask dumb stuff in the hope they answer (like "who wins in a fight, a shark or dinosaur??)
