Happy National Puppy Day!

Awwww, it’s National Puppy Day! Do you have a puppy in your life that you love? I personally don’t have a puppy right now, but I have had many puppies in my life over the years that I have loved. No doubt that puppies are a lot of work, but I think their cuteness makes up for it 🙂

Whether you have a puppy, want a puppy, or just love puppies, take some of these quizzes with me to celebrate national puppy day! For today only, no cats or chocolate allowed.

What Breed of Puppy Are You? – One of my favorite things about dogs is how they all have such different personalities, both within and between breeds. If you were a puppy, what breed of puppy would you be? This quiz will let you know.

Are You a Puppy or a Kitten? – Sure kittens are cute, but they don’t hold a candle to puppies – at least not on National Puppy Day. Take this quiz to decide once and for all if you’re more like a puppy or kitten. (And all kidding aside, of course they are both cute!)

What Breed of Dog Are You? – Now that you’ve discovered what kind of puppy you would be, let’s take things up a level and see what kind of dog you would be. What adult dog are you most like? And does that match your puppy personality or not? Take this quiz to learn the truth.

What’s Your Spirit Dog? – You may be wondering why there’s a spirt dog quiz in addition to a dog breed quiz. Very good question! Well, your spirit dog is a little different from your inner dog breed. Your spirit dog is the dog who is your true best friend, the dog who complements your personality best. Take this quiz to see who your spirit dog is!

How Do You Compare? 3 Quizzes to Quiz Your Friends!

Sometimes it’s fun to see how your quiz results stack up with those that your friends get. I think we all like to place ourselves within our friend group, and seeing how others compare can help. For example, are you happier than your friends… or are they generally happier than you?

Also, we just tend to be better at evaluating our friends than evaluating ourselves. So if a friend scores a certain way on a quiz, that’s a good baseline to consider. Friends can help us know ourselves better, especially if they’re open about their quiz results 🙂

So gather up a few friends, and take these quizzes to see how you all compare! They’re all in good fun, and you’ll come out of the experience knowing more about yourselves and your friendships.

What Kind of Friend Are You? – Have you ever wondered what kind of friend you are? Take this quiz to learn if you’re the fun friend, the group gossip, or a loyal sidekick.

After you’ve learned what kind of friend you are, quiz your friends and learn what they get. Are you all the same type of friend, or do you have different roles to play in your friend circle?

What Makes You a Good Friend? – If you have friends, then it almost by definition means that you’re a good friend. However we are all good friends in our own way. Some of us are accepting, while others are honest. Take this quiz to find out what your friends love about you.

Once you know what makes you a good friend, ask your friends to take this quiz as well. Learn if you are all good friends in the same way or if you’re bringing different strengths to friendship.

What’s Your Friendship Style? – We all approach friendship in our own ways. I consider there to be four friendship styles: philosophical, independent, gregarious, and empathetic. Give this quiz a whirl to see what friendship style you rock.

And once you’ve taken the friendship style quiz, pass it along to your best friends. This quiz will identify their friendship styles and also show you how each friendship style fuses together. It’s a great way to get insight into what’s working (and what isn’t) in your closest friendships.

New Quiz: Are You a Brownie or a Cookie?

Are you more like a brownie or a cookie? Take my latest quiz to find out!

Mmmm, can you smell it in the air? I’m not talking about late fall crispness, wood burning fireplaces or even holiday spirit. I’m talking about the smell of holiday baking. It’s that time of year everyone, and I can just smell the cookies, rolls, cakes, and other delights baking in the air. And since I haven’t started baking yet, these smells are mostly wishful thinking on my part.

As I’ve made clear, I love holiday treats, and cookies are foremost on this list. I like traditional holiday cookies like cutout cookies, but I also like more normal cookies as well as ones from foreign countries. However, I often wonder why holiday baking tends to begin and end at cookies – with the occasional fruitcake thrown in. Shouldn’t there be more holiday delights? Like brownies for instant.

Now that I’ve tipped my hat, let’s be clear: I love brownies! I don’t think they are given their due in baking culture, and this especially is true during the holidays. Peppermint brownies anyone? Maybe some gingerbread brownies too? Why not? If people can put ginger and chocolate together in fancy dark chocolates, then I think this could be a winning holiday combo.

That’s not to say I like brownies better than cookies. Or maybe I’ll do. I’ll leave that up for you to decide. However, I do think cookies and brownies should be held up equally highly, so I decided to write a quiz about them both!

Let’s get down to it: Are You a Brownie or a Cookie? Yes, you may love them both like I do, but you can only be one. Let me know what you get on this tasty quiz and also if you think holiday brownies should be a thing 🙂

Quiz: What Kind of Candy Are You?

What kind of candy best represents your personality? Take this quiz to find out!

Do you like candy? I mean, we all do, right? I will admit to not liking every candy in the world, but if it has some chocolate (or enough sugar) in it, then I’ll probably like it! Of course, my favorite thing about candy is that it’s sweet. Beyond that though, I have to say that I really like how you can just have a piece or two of candy as a treat. Unlike something like a big slice of chocolate cake, you can have a little piece of candy every day. Or two. Or three. In my opinion 🙂 

It may be odd to talking about candy in December instead of October, but I consider candy’s season to run from Halloween to Valentine’s Day. I mean,  if you think about it, Halloween is just the beginning for candy lovers like us. There’s always the hope that there will be candy corn at Thanksgiving (not a favorite, but I’ll take what I can get). And of course, I consider candy in Christmas stockings a must. Believe it or not, candy is part of my New Year’s Eve tradition. Yup, I eat those chocolates with a bit of booze in them. And of course, Valentine’s Day should always be about candy, whether you’re single or not. So given all of this, aren’t we smack in the middle of candy season.

The candy quiz that I’m sharing today has been on Blogthings for quite a while, but it was definitely due for a revamp. The outcomes have been expanded a ton, and I think you’ll get a chuckle out of your outcome.  Take What Kind of Candy Are You? and let me know what you get. What’s your favorite kind of candy?

Quiz: Who Should Paint Your Portrait?

What famous artist should paint your portrait? Take this quiz to find out.

Have you ever dreamed of a famous artist painting your portrait? I definitely have. I think it would be so cool to have an abstract or highly stylized painting of myself. Of course, in a few years, we’ll probably all have artificial intelligence available to make all sorts of funky portraits of us. Still, I prefer to do some old school day dreaming.

If I had to choose, I would definitely want a Picasso of myself. (Yes, I know he’s long dead, just dreaming here.) Or maybe a Warhol. Or even a Dali. Heck I’ll take all three! To be honest, I’d love a painting of myself by any famous artist (who wouldn’t???). But I do find something wacky or colorful to be the most compelling 🙂

I found the idea of a world famous artist painting my portrait so compelling that I decided to write a quiz about it. If you’ve been using Blogthings a while, you’ve already probably taken What Artist Should Paint Your Portrait?, but hear me out… this quiz is totally improved.  I did even more research on the artist’s featured, an d now the quiz outcomes are three to four times as long.

So if you’ve ever wondered which artist should paint you, take What Artist Should Paint Your Portrait? You may be surprised to learn which artist bests would capture your personality. Are you more of a pop art or surrealist type? This quiz will tell you and possibly introduce you to your new favorite visual artist.

Give this quiz a go, and let me know what you think. Did you get an artist that you would actually like to paint your portrait? If not, what sort of portrait would you like?
