I've Been Tagged!

I've been tagged by Kathy and the subject is on blogging, one of my most favorite pastimes even though it seems to be hard to get my arse over here lately, so here we go....

1. When did you first start blogging and why?

Great. You're asking an over the hill boomer chick to REMEMBER? Okay, for posterity sake, let's just go with a few years ago. Not long, maybe a couple. I started another blog, not this one, because I saw it as a wonderful way to promote. Okay, so I'm shallow...lol. I had a new book come out and I thought, well, let's write about things about the book and maybe here's hoping someone might pop in and be interested. And BUY.

Then, after that, it was like this wasn't about promoting a book anymore. This was about expressing my feelings for the world to see...a scary thought, but you know, it was kinda neat. And the people...man...the people I have met...they are really really nice.

2. What do you talk about?

It seems I've really wandered, talking about anything that's going on in my life. When I first opened this blog, I wanted to talk about things that boomer chicks might be going through and then like I said, I wandered. Different subjects. Never focused on one particular thing, but people don't seem to mind. ;o)

3. Are you and your blogging persona the same person?

Yep. In the flesh. Can't get any closer to the real thing than right here.

4. How do you use blogging to build friendships?

Well, this is a question I could go on and on about. The people I have met since blogging are just like family to me. I try to stop over and visit their blogs and keep forgetting to stop this crazy thing called writing books long enough to check in on them. I cry with them, laugh with them, really get into their personal side. I believe blogging encourages friendships and is really good in that regards.

5. How would you describe your writing style?

You mean, in here? Freestyle, I suppose. Whatever floats my boat, you might say.

Next up...I tag Dick!

  3. Thanks for posting, Dorothy. I miss you when you don't. And I'm so sorry to read about the missing manuscript. My computer was in such sad shape I was afraid that would happen to me, too, so we finally got a new laptop - to replace the one that was ruined by a spilled glass of water. Ugh! No beverages of any kind go near this one.
