Picked this interesting little meme up from Naomi's blog.
1-Do you like the look and the contents of your blog?
Mostly. I’ve not found a template I really like yet (although I've downloaded a few to play with!), so in the meantime I have worked out how to play with bits of html. I like the rainbow impression of the colours. If anyone wants to make me a lovely purple Queenly blog, I wouldn’t say no…
2-Does your family know about your blog?
Yes. But my parents don’t even have a computer, so they would never see it. I have recently given the URL to my young nephews and niece, so will continue the family friendly rating!
3-Can you tell your friends about your blog?
Interesting change of question. Not ‘do your friends know?’ but ‘can you tell them?’ How curious….Anyway, the answer is yes. Think about it – my two closest friends are bloggers. In fact, out of the eight adult friends, five have blogs and two have blogger accounts!
4-Do you just read the blogs of those who comment on your blog?
No, I do smurf my blogroll and lurk about in blogdom, even just going on a link-hunt. Sometimes, I need to unlurk and comment. Depends how I am feeling.
5-Did your blog positively affect your mind?
What a curious question! Would I continue with it if it had a negative effect on my psychological state? I do occasionally use it to rant at my ever-present depression and mild psychoses. I guess that would be positive.
6-What does the number of visitors to your blog mean?
Er – it means I have visitors!?!
7-Did you imagine how other bloggers look like?
Do you talk to someone on the phone you don’t know and wonder what they look like? I think we all do, to a small extent.
8-Do you think blogging has any real benefit?
9-Do you think that the blogosphere is a stand alone community separated from the real world?
Let’s see. I sent Christmas cards to two blogbuddies and a present to one of them. I have a blogbuddy saved in my mobile and at least three of them are regular chatters on my Messenger. So – I would have to say ‘No’. And that is not including my own circle of friends.
10-Do some political blogs scare you? Do you avoid them?
‘Scare’? Hmm – only really fundamentalist ones! I’ve tripped over a couple of scary ones. But political blogs mostly confuse me. I am a blogger of very little brain (to paraphrase AA Milne) and I really don’t understand politics. My dearest pal CK has a very religio-political blog and although I visit him regularly, I am not usually comfortable in commenting.
11-Do you think that criticizing your blog is useful?
Why would anyone do that? It’s my blog. My bit of the techno world. It’s written by me, and reflects my life, my opinions and my thoughts. So, if you don’t like it – why take the time to comment. If I don’t like a blog, or even just a post, I will usually leave without a comment.
12-Have you ever thought about what would happen to your blog in case you died?
Nope. Never gave it a second thought – although I did give CK my user name and password a little while ago.
13-Which blogger had the greatest impression on you?
Any blogger who is surmounting physical or family difficulties and coming out on top.
14-Which blogger do you think is the most similar to you?
I would hate to presume I knew them well enough to judge. There are a lot of blogs out there that are sort of on the same lines, but similar? No. That’s part of the appeal – each blog is a reflection of an individual.
15-Name a song you want to listen to?
Start Wearing Purple by Gogol Bordello. It’s a fab gipsy punk number that you can’t resist singing along to…….
