Living on the internet can be a very weird place. We use it for information and learning new an interesting things. We go to places like blogs to find recipes, art, printables and even just some advice.
But do we really know anything about the people who are giving us this advice, opinions and so on? No not really and we would like to change that.
These get to know me questions are very popular with Youtubers and I thought that Bennita and I could use them here so you could get to know us.
