The Bloggity Blog Blog Tag

Carey @ Life in the Carpool Lane came up with these questions for when you have nothing else to blog about.

Thank goodness! I'm never prepared for Mondays.

So I give you The Bloggity Blog Blog Tag:

Where are you blogging right now?
At work; 98% of the time this is where I'm blogging from.

How many unpublished posts do you have in your 'draft' box?
None. Why keep all this genius to myself?!

Whose blog inspired you to start your own?
I don't know that it was one person. First, I found the "savings" blogs. Then I found a few cooking blogs and I was hooked. If you go back, waaayy back, you can see the first few posts were written with those topics in mind.

When do you usually publish your posts?
After I get to work in the mornings. Occasionally, I will have them done early enough to use post-options and set the time for early morning but it's pretty rare that I think that far ahead.

In your guesstimation, how many blogs do you read?
20-30 everyday; more when I have time to check my google reader.

How long have you been blogging for?
June 5th was my blogiversary. :o)

Why did you start blogging?
I don't know that I have an exact reason, but it seemed like fun to be able to write whatever you wanted to. Then when I started to get comments, it was really fascinating to see other people's opinions on what I was writing.

Why do you keep blogging?
I've built some great relationships with other bloggers. I love to read what's happening in their lives and share my life with them.

If you could only recommend one blog to a friend, which one would it be?
That's a tough one. I read an odd selection of blogs - everything from cooking, to savings, mommy blogs & ones that are definitely not for the PG rated peeps. Sorry, but I'm bowing out of this question. I recommend EVERYONE on my blogroll.

If the internet was "turned off" for one month, what you you do with all the time you used to spend blogging?
Ideally, I would organize my home, file papers at work and maybe tackle a few projects I've been avoiding.
Truthfully, I would be bored and overcompensate by watching more worthless reality TV or reading more.

As Carey said, feel free to grab this and pass it on!

My internet was turned off for a month as we deperately tried to change service providers. I ended up trolling the streets of my city with my laptop looking for an internet connection - if I could have afforded to swill down a Starbucks everyday I would have camped out there. After about 2 weeks with no internet, we asked our neighbor if we could piggy-back on their connection and they let us - don't turn me in.

You answered "Why do you keep blogging" incorrectly.

Because if you weren't blogging, you would not be allowed to sleep with me in November.


(Yeah, just let the other commenters wonder. Play it cool, Brandy. I will, too.)

Thanks for grabbing the tag...for some odd reason I'm fascinated by other peoples' blogging habits.

Nothing in your draft box? I usually start something and finish it days later...there is no way I could post on the fly like you!

Kat said...

I have so many half finished blog posts. But then I run out of stamina, ideas, and humor.

And Monday's always get me too. As evidenced by my lack of post so far today...

Roxane said...

Maybe I should publish my 4 drafts and stop being so selfishly keeping the "genius" to myself LOL...
I'm fairly sure that if my internet were cut off for a month I would live at Panera bread, where the internet is free and the Asiago Cheese Bagels are cheap!

Denise said...

I'm so glad you don't keep your genius to yourself! I need your genius most days.

I love this tag. I think I'll do it tomorrow.

The Royal Family said...

HA, good information. I am glad you and Lula are shacking up.

Veggie Mom said...

I'm trying right now to figure out a balance between blogging and the things I really NEED to do. Happy blogoversary, BTW!

Organic Meatbag said...

You are full of bloggy goodness, Brandy...and yes, I also do 99% of my blogging at work...I just can't concentrate at home, so I do it here and pretend I get paid to blog... hehehe...

glad to know someone else reads as many blogs as I do...

WhisperingWriter said...

Very cool.

If my Internet ever turned off I'd be in a panic. I imagine my house would be much cleaner though.

Thanks for the warm welcome to SIITS !! LOVE your blog!

CaraBee said...

A month without the internet! Horrors! I would probably wither away to nothing from grief.

Alicia said...

April said...

I don't have any unpublished post either. Never have.
Great questions and answers.
