Robin's Meme

Gosh, I was tagged with this about 100 years ago by Robinella. I'm not sure how it fell through the cracks but it did. Sorry, ma'am.

How long have you been blogging?

Actually since april 20, 2007. I started a blog once upon a time in 2005 but I only posted once and cannot remember the name and/or the password so I am only counting this one.

Are you trying to make money online or are you in it just for fun?

Money, you can make money? Actually, (wow, two actuallies in a row) I am probably going to have ads added to my sidebar next week. Fair warning, guys.

What inspired you to blog and who are your mentors?

I am not sure that anyone inspired me to blog. I just wanted a space to write. I had been reading
MamaDrama in the Houston Chronicle. I am, or was, an online newspaper junkie. I used to read 19 papers daily. Jenny and Min made me laugh and still do. I started clicking on their commenters links and before you knew it, I was all over the world. I don't know that I count them as mentors but The Dingo's Got My Barbie; Pensieve; Anecdotes, Antidotes and Anodes; the Three Dog Blog; and the Anglophile Football Fanatic among others have amused me, inspired me, made me laugh, made me think, and made me grateful for new friends.

What 3 things do you love about being on line?

I love meeting new people and hearing other opinions.
I love sharing the joys and frustrations of everyday life with everyday people.
I love learning new things about the world and about myself.


Now for some much needed thanks! I have been literally deluged with awards! So, in no particular order, I would like to say thank you for the following:

from Alison at RDH Mom

from Lisa at Lisa's Chaos AND

from Laurie at Three Dog Blog

from Robin at Robinella AND

from ~Ann at For The Long Run

Thanks to one and all. Your generosity and kindness continue to amaze me. Thanks again.

Ok, so how do you make money doing this blogging thing? Swampy was our inspiration, too. Blogging has been a great release for NLM the absolute king of useless knowledge! And it's been fun for me to see what all I can fit into a 150 pixel x 150 pixel piece of artwork. May we all have many more years of blogging bliss!
