Happy 2nd Blog Anniversary! – An Interview, Part 5, Finale

anniversayGreetings readers, bloggers, geeks, and authors. It’s my anniversary and I thought I’d interview myself and share it with you. I’ve come a long way as a writer, blogger, reviewer, and interviewer and I’d thought it would be nice to share some of the things I’ve learned and tell you a little about myself, in case you don’t already know.


What’s the most fun experience I’ve ever had, to date?

I have so many fond memories with friends and family that it’s nearly impossible to focus in on just one, but I’ll do my best. When I think long and hard about it, I’d have to say that my most fun experiences are of times spent on short little trips with my husband.

One year we got away from it all: our jobs, our friends, and our families just to spend a private Thanksgiving together. It was really nice and a lot of fun, especially since our getaway destination was Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA or as I like to call it “Little Vegas”.

The whole experience was weird, fun, nice, and exciting in a way that’s just too complicated to describe here. I sincerely hope we get the chance to recreate that moment again down the road.

Not that I can see into the future, but in my opinion, what does the future hold?

I’m going to go against my very nature and try to be positive here. I’m a realist, but I feel a need to look on the bright side, or at least search for one. I hope that the US figures out that what it’s doing isn’t working and realizes it may be time to let some non-politicians come up with some ideas for how to fix things. I hope that at some point the rich will stop trying to keep all the rich people rich and the poor people poor and start focusing on how to manage their wealth in a way that allows them to keep wealth without keeping it from others.

As for me, if by some miracle I’m able to step away from a day-job and write full-time, I’ll be happy, but if not I’ll still be right here sharing with all of you. I’ll be doing that anyway…but hopefully in the future there will be a lot more of you to share with.

Is there a message or cause that I want to share with the world?

I could stand on my soap box and talk all day about all kinds of issues that I feel are important, but I won’t go against the nature of this blog, which is to be lighthearted. If you really want to know how I feel, get to know me. Aside from my author page, Toi Thomas, on Facebook, I have a personal profile as Toinette Thomas. You don’t have become my friend to see what I’m doing, thinking, and sharing. Follow me for a while and see for yourself.

Aside from that, I’ve posted, in several places on this blog, some of the causes that I’m actively promoting and giving to, including The American Cancer Society. Please feel free to seek them out and learn more.


Any last words to offer these readers after visiting here at the ToiBox of Words?

In case you haven’t picked up on it by now, this is a very diverse blog and I am a diverse person. I don’t have a lot of extremes about me and I don’t fit neatly into any specific category. In truth, I think that most people are like this whether they realize it or not. I think that we are all more alike than we are different and I welcome all to experience what the ToiBox of Words has to offer.

My blog motto: “I promote books and authors because I think authors should be just as important to the world of entertainment as music groups and movie stars.”


Okay readers, bloggers, geeks, and authors, that’s all for today…unless you have a question you’d like to ask me. 😉

Thank you for sticking with me these past two years and these past five days. I hope you have enjoyed at least some of the things I’ve shared. I do so humbly look forward to seeing you around the ToiBox of Words in the future.

This has been a


 Thank you for taking the time to read this post. If you like it let me know and share it with others. See you next time, Toi Thomas. #thetoiboxofwords
