My blog has been Meme'd...

Today while updating my twitter page I noticed I had received a Direct message. I opened it and noticed it was from my friend and fellow blogger DJ Nelson of It said,"You've been tagged for a meme". A what?? Did I win prize? Was I cursed? After doing some more research I learned I had been invited to play a giant game of blogger's tag.

With a meme (rhymes with dream) your blog is exposed to more bloggers through virtual networking. Upon being tagged you are asked to link to the person who tapped you, respond to a question, post the guidelines and then tap several other bloggers so they can do the same.
What are great way to learn about other bloggers while exposing your own blog. I'm still relatively new to blogging. I have more blog entries written in my head that actually in this blog. Hopefully the new ppl who come to visit will leave comments and suggestions on how be a more faithful blogger.
So with out further adieu here are the rules:
1) Link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
2) Share 7 facts about yourself.
3) Tag 7 random people and include links to their blogs.
4) Let each person know they have been tagged and comment on their blog.
1. I used to be a new reporter on a local AM NEWS/TALK station. Finding that my research skills were excellent they promoted me to producer. By the end of my almost 6 year stint I was producing both the morning and evening show. It was here I began to teach myself web design. I was then in charge of the station site along with a site for a hard rock station. Talk about learning some lessons. I loved working at the station, but boy do you learn a lot during your first office employment situation.
2. I'm a pack rat. I'm horrible. It's not that I can't throw things away. I just always think as soon as I toss or get rid of something I will then need it again. I also am horrible about wanting to cling to those things of yester year. Things that remind me of my childhood, or the past in general. Then there are those things I just don't know what to do with. Things that I don't really need, don't want to throw away, so I'm left with boxes. My family wants to sign me up for clean sweep - if they did I would be bawling. The host would SO make me cry. I would have to hide everything before he showed up. LOL! I am proud to say however, I am working on this problem and I am getting much better than I was. Not perfect or cured, but better, which is a big step for me.

3. I'm a podcast junkie. I’ve already confessed this in a previous post, but I love listening to podcasts. In fact I"m a research junkie too. So listening to podcast while researching is a great combo for me. I"m working on having my own podcast, but we need to get equipment and all worked out.
4. I want to road trip all over USA. I want to go to greasy spoons, hot dog stands and ma & pop ice cream stands. I would love to visit all the places on a Hot Dog Show and an Ice Cream Program. MMM! MMM! MMM!
5. I used to be a Petra Rep I wasn't good at it though. I'm not an indie rep person, even though I'm consultant for greeting cakes and a couple jewelry companies, I just can't do home parties. I did learn during this time that no one, despite what statistics say and that Victoria's secret has made her quite rich, no one wears sleepwear. Everyone sleeps in sweats, flannel or t-shirts. Guess that's why Petra is no longer in business.
6. My degree includes a concentration in photography. When I was in high school I wanted to be a cinematographer. Well I didn't go that far, but I did have a picture took while on the band trip in high school receive special honors and recognition. The photo travel both around the USA and the USSR on a Kodak photo tour.
7. I married my husband twice, and we were never divorced. This is a really long story. Short of it is some how out marriage license didn't end up at the court house to be filed, there for it expired. Since no one knew where the reverend was who married us we had to get remarried in another ceremony with a new license.

We do have a lot in common. If only I got paid for all the stuff I keep and never throw away. What's up with blogger making me login to an account? Ick
