Big Incestuous Blog Circle

Hello There My Little Smores,

I am still feeling like shit. Sitting through work today was difficult. I attempted to work out this morning, and Lordy it was brutal. But I made it !

Shay has nominated me to take a bloggy survey and I could just not resist. I will chose five of you to be meme whores with me. This time, I am not linking your names to your blogs because I am sick and lazy.

1. Do you write blog posts to please yourself or to please your audience? Please myself. I've been blogging for 6 and a half years now and it's only been a year that I've had more than five comments. For the first 4 years I was lucky if I got one or two. I will write what I want whether people stop by or not.

2. How do you make people visit your blogs and to elicit nice comments on your handy work? Do you employ the heavy mob to bully your readers or do you use your gentle wit, charm and good nature. Seriously, what do you consider the best way to interact with your fellow bloggers?
I don't make anyone do anything that they don't want to do. I hope that people come by and comment because they've enjoyed what I posted or want to debate something. I don't want charity commentors. The best way to interact with my fellow bloggers is to be kind, as well as read their blogs and leave comments on theirs as well. You wouldn't believe how many people complain that no one comments on their blogs, when they never leave comments.

3. If you were starting your blog again would you do something radically different? Maybe, but probably not. I like my setup right now.

4. What is the most significant event in your life to date? I have had a lot of significant things happen to me, but right now I am most proud of my new job.

5. Would any of you like to appear on The Sunday Roast programme? I don't know what it is.

6. What do you like to do in your free time? I love to blog, read, work out, dance, and hang out with friends.

7. If you could go back in time which event would be of interest to you most, and why? Europe pre WWII. I just feel a strong connection to it, can't explain it.

8. Are you addicted to blogging? Do you think it is addictive? or can you take it or leave it? Blogging is therapeutic to me. I am not addicted, but I've been writing since 2003 so I don't know if I would want to stop. It's kind of like a record that I existed.

9. Which person on planet Earth, past or present, do you admire most, and why? I love both of my grandmothers and they both loved/love me very much. My grandmother told me that she is blessed to be my grandma, and I told her she is my role model. How nice is that ?

10. When this life is over do you think it is curtains or do you think there is an after life? I can't say for sure, I am not ready to find out. But I do think there may be an after life.

Here are ten more questions !

1.  What is your favorite bird, and why? a hummingbird, because they are beautiful, colorful, graceful, and they sip nectar all day long. I wish I could be on a sugar diet !

2. Free shoes for life or free coffee for life? Free coffee for life with a hot barista.

3. Do you have a lucky number? 7

4. You get to re-animate someone from the past. Who would you choose? That's easy, Beavis and Butthead !

5. You discover that your dog can talk. What do you do next? I don't have a dog, but if I did, I would start asking its opinion about other people.

6. You have to change into a man. Who? Who cares ? I have a penis, I am going to figure out what the excitement is all about !

7. You have to change into some other woman. Who? Adriana Lima

8. I am your Fairy Godmother. I can make you fantastically wise or fantastically sexy. Which will it be? It is so freaking hard to choose. I would end up asking for wisdom, but I would be lying if I didn't ask for more va-va voom !

9. You have to live the rest of your life as some type of animal. What kind? That's easy, I would be a bird because if anyone pissed me off, I could retaliate by shitting on their heads or cars or house. And what could they do about it ? It's not like they could grow wings.

10. You're going on a cruise with someone. Where are you going? After stopping by your mom's house, we would go to Egypt.

Ooh, and before I forget, here are my 5...............
1.) HMCinCali
2.) Ashleigh
3.) Red Shoes
4.) Mac
5.) LL Cool Joe
Take it and pass it around !

Although I like reading and responding to comments, it's not the quantity that counts. I'm with you there.

You with a penis?? That would be hilarious, Chica! You could do your own manslation.

Hope you feeling better soon, so you can enjoy your weekend!!

PS - I love how your grandmother told you she's blessed to be your grandmother. That's so sweet!

Blogging for 6 years? I didn't even know about blogging a year or so ago. It is very therapeutic and a great way to get thoughts down. I always journal by hand, but man, when you spend a lot of time on the computer it seems like journaling online is much easier!

I HOPE there's an afterlife. (Thanks for saying you think so on my blog!)

And grandmother's - they're the best. I should write about my grandma.

Hope you feel better soon!

"...see what the excitement is all about." That's a good one.

MindyMom said...

Very interesting answers - and none of them a surprise. :)

Danielle said...

I am going with Mindy on this. You answered exactly as I figured you would. :)

mac said...

You're very sweet. I know your Grandmas loved you very much.

If you had a, you just can't!

As to the second number 8:
You've got more than enough now!
Whattaya wanna drive all us fellas crazy?

How does anyone get anyone to comment? People comment if they are so moved. As I am now. Ha.

Hummingbirds rock.

Change nothing!

I agree with mac... you are more than hot enough as it is... hope that you believe that.

pre WWII would have been interesting, but at what age? Knowing that you have roots in Europe, that would be quite the experience. I have always wished to be a young man in the late 50's early 60's.

Uh, if you don't mind me saying so, you ARE the survey whore..!

KrippledWarrior said...

I have an award for you!

Fireblossom said...

ooo, ya did it! Yay! Thanks. :-)

I think you upset Mac lol. It's just a survey, Mac, don't panic!
