I have a bunch of stuff I wanted to blog about, but just decided to cheat and throw it all together.
First, I was tagged! For the first time ever, by Sybil, so I guess I'll play:
1). When did you start blogging and why?
Well, I created my blog at the beginning of January, but prior to that, I would visit author blogs. My intention when I started this blog was to have a more modern type of diary, but since the internet is not a private place, I decided to just make it a place I could talk to myself about things I question, or things that interest me. I didn't really expect too many people to come here, and I'm glad it's a low-key place. This is never going to be a top place to visit, and that's just fine.
2). What don't you talk about?
Since I mentioned the internet was not a private place, I would say my personal relationships, sex life, etc. I'm just not someone who talks about that stuff with just anyone. I also don't mention specific problems about work, anything that could be monitored, though I can't access blogger, myspace, live journal from work - we're restricted, which is probably just as well.
3). Are you and your blogging persona the same person?
Mostly, sure. I'm pretty private, so that fits. I have my hot buttons, but it takes a lot to set me off. Life's too short to get crazy about everything, so I don't plan to have controversial topics here. I'd rather visit those places instead of living in one, where I can leave anytime LOL.
4). How do you use blogging to build friendships?
I don't really have a blog for that reason. Most of the people I'm friends with through the internet were people I met at Yahoo, where there is a lot more interaction, and most who I've met in person - those people are what I would call friends. But there have been exceptions - people who somehow get past my defenses and get to care about them.
5). How would you describe your writing style?
Rambling. No style. Just like how I talk. No rhyme or reason, just lots of words. Not a lot of profanity. But that's just me.

Geez, I just can't get that Justin Timberlake song "Sexy Back" out of my head...and I don't even like Justin Timberlake. Much. Okay, this song rocks. And he sings it. So maybe he's not so bad after all. And there's that part about shackles. He's my slave. Okay, not MY slave. But no one makes him feel that way. (Okay, now I'm sounding like Mailyn LOL. I have to stop saying "okay").

Before I head off to Atlanta on Tuesday, I'll have another book giveaway contest. Think baseball. Think heavenly beings. Think I'll save it for tomorrow ;)
