Oooh a new game, I haven’t come across this before.
Theresa from floating with the breeze has tagged me in a game of blog tag. Thank you, I’m very flattered.
It’s a way of opening up your blog to a couple more followers perhaps and an appreciation of blogs you enjoy, a bit like an award.
I hope the people I tag are ok with being tagged … please play if you want do and don’t if you don’t.
So there are rules, as with all games, and here they are:
You must post the rules
Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post
Create eleven new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged (or use the existing ones)
Tag (eleven) people with a link to your post
Let them know they’ve been tagged
These are the questions I was asked, along with my answer.
1. What is your first childhood memory?
I think it is lying in the back of my dad’s car looking at the purples, oranges, reds and yellows of an Australian bush sunset. We lived there for a couple of years.
2. Do you play a musical instrument and, if so, what?
I don’t but I’ve always wanted to play honkytonk piano.
3. Do you always feel confident about your posts once published?
No, but I find writing the posts cathartic, it is a way of organising my sometimes very confused thoughts.
4. What scares you?
On a superficial level, spiders (need Man to get rid), on a deeper level, waking up one day and wondering what would have happened had I tried something. Life is for living and I want to grab every chance I get to follow my dreams and run with it.
5. Do you read the newspapers?
I am the production editor for a large group of local newspapers so I read them before they are published. Other than that, I get most if not all of my news from the television or internet.
6. What is the main inspiration for your creativity?
With my photography it is light, I am completely obsessed with how different light creates a different image. With my writing it’s people. I am curious about people and what makes them tick.
7. Do you take time out for yourself?
Time for myself would be time spent with Man, with my camera or reading.
8. Are you doing what you love?
Almost, I’m trying to be. I did love journalism but there is something lacking now. Now I want to be more creative and that’s what I’m working towards.
9. Have you ever had any unusual experiences happen to you that you can’t explain?
Many. Lots of deja vue moments and even silly things like two days ago Man and I had been talking about a lovely meal we had had in a pub after getting lost in the countryside a few weeks ago and how we would never be able to find it again. That same day, we went on a road trip to the south coast and on the way home passed the very pub we had been discussing. We know where it is now.
10.What would you like to be remembered for?
Being a decent person.
11.Do you remember your dreams when you wake up in the morning?
For about 10 seconds, then it’s gone and I spend the rest of the day trying to remember.
And now for my nominations, which are blogs I always look forward to reading. Whether or not the authors decide to play this little game, pop by and have a look at what they have to say.
In the order I found them in my Reader:
And here are the questions:
Which three words describe you best?
What is your dream job?
What was your favourite childhood toy?
What was the last book you read?
Puddles, walk around or jump in?
What is at the top of your bucket list?
Who would be your ideal dinner guests?
Where do you want to be in five years time?
What is your favourite season?
Why do you blog?
Play, or not, as you choose but thank you for providing me with much entertainment and information, I really enjoy reading your blogs.
