Tag! I’m It.

A big sarcastic Woo Hoo for being tagged. If you’ve read my blog for any length of time you know that I avoid tags like I’d avoid a George Bush family reunion. Question Girl returned from being dead to the world for two weeks and the first thing she does is tag me. This time I decided that it was time you got a chance to see the serious, thoughful side of Phil. The side that likes to refer to himself in the third person. I believe that on some subjects my opinions are worth sharing with the world, so without further ado…

1) Are you happy/satisfied with your blog’s content and look? I’m bored with everything about my template except that little picture in the top left.

2) Does your family know about your blog? The only family I acknowledge is my blog family.

3) Do you feel embarrassed to let your friends know about your blog? I’m not embarrased about my blog, but my friends are. Also, because people I know in real life read my blog I do avoid writing some things I might otherwise.

4) Did blogging cause positive changes in your thoughts? Ok, I’ll give a serious answer to this one. Yes, I learned that I can write.

5) Do you only open the blogs of those who comment on your blog or do you love to go and discover more by yourself? I read the blogs of those who comment on mine and if I read a funny comment on someone elses blog I’ll go to read that persons blog as well. I will also read any blog that contains information about how to start my own cult.

6) What does a visitor counter mean to you? Do you like having one on your blog? I have a visitor counter, but I could give a rats ass what it says. I almost never see it because it’s way down at the bottom of the page.

7) Did you try to imagine your fellow bloggers and give them real pictures? Absolutely, and in my imagination they’re usually naked because that’s how I am when I’m blogging.

8) Admit it. Do you think there is any real benefit in blogging? Absolutely. I’m sure that somehow Blogger is making a fortune off of this. I don’t know why they haven’t sent me a check yet though.

9) Does criticism annoy you or do you feel it’s a normal thing? I’ll let you know as soon as someone criticizes me. Well, as soon as I hunt them down and make their life miserable until they take it back. Right after that I’ll tell you how I feel about criticism.

10) Were you shocked by the arrest of some bloggers? I was not shocked at all. In fact it was I who turned them in. I was just trying to cut out some of my competition. I also fully expect to be arrested for my blog some day. How long can I make jokes about the F.B.I. without someone losing their sense of humor?

11) What do you think will happen to your blog after you die? Die? Me?!!? What the hell are you talking about?

I have eliminated a couple questions because I found them boring and because this was getting quite long. I am not going to tag anyone because that is the equivalent of passing on a chain letter, but if you wanted to do this tag go ahead and knock yourself out.

  1. Funny. Except for #7 TMI Phil, TMI (TMI means Too Much Information – as in Eww).

  2. Tag? What’s a tag? Does it hurt? *hovering in confusion*

  3. Blogging naked? THAT I need a picture of!

  4. I’m with you on the meme/tagging thing (though I have also bent to pressure and done one.As for blogging naked? What goes on in front of the laptop, stays in front of the laptop.

  5. Most tags are pretty annoying, but it was nice to see another side of Phil.Questions 11: what a bizarre question. Really, what are the possibilities??? What answers does the authour of this meme expect to get? Weird.

  6. WTF’s a meme? Is that a misspelled memo?So, uh…when do you hook up the webcam for your blogging sessions?

  7. ok, that’s funny..like your picture do you..hey,since when do you work for the police…(out here, when someone asks as many questions as you just did..well thats the joke..” since when do you work for the fuzzzzzz..) ok so you don’t think it’s funny, but here in Quebec they do….

  8. You blog naked? Do you want to start a cult of naked bloggers?You could be our Bhagwan.

  9. ….You know, i used to be friends with this girl in highschool. Her mom and her were talking about all of our friends one day, and my friend and her mom agreed if she had one friend that was most likely to join, or start, a cult…it would be me. Which is odd, because joining and starting are Completely different…i think im more of a cult starter…

  10. *LMAO*1) i know you hate these2) i KNEW you would end up doing it anyway3) it was to get you back for sending me that damn chain mail that you REFUSED to break

  11. Naked blogging… I like. Now, I bet there is a blog out there with the title “The Naked Blogger” if not, you should def start it!

  12. the death thing freaks me out LOL I mean we can be immortalized by blogs and myspace pages*shudder*

  13. You may have started a serious trend here *chuckle* I can just see some enterprising blogger rushing out to bag the domain name ‘The Naked Blogger’ and making a ton in the process. Who said there is no real benefit in blogging? πŸ˜‰

  14. Phil i had never thought of the last question. This is a potentially good business idea though. You could set up a company to make books out of people’s blogs, or erm, urns?

  15. Phil, you are funny. No doubt about it. I liked this post so much that now I’m sorry about turning you in the other day. I’ll see if I can get them to drop the charges. πŸ™‚

  16. WHOA! # 7 way to much info..Kind of ironic..I just got out of a shower and I have a towel wrapped around me.. lol πŸ˜‰

  17. I’ve taken a break from my own blog; I’m in a bad place personally and have learned that when I’m feeling low, writing bites me in the ass. So I’m posting my own responses here. 1) Are you happy/satisfied with your blog’s content and look? I think I do pretty well with the content. I’m not happy with the look and feel at all. However, my design skills are rusty and I don’t have the cash to hire someone to personalize it for me.2) Does your family know about your blog? They know about it. Fortunately they are computer illiterate and wouldn’t be able to find it even if I gave them the address. 3) Do you feel embarrassed to let your friends know about your blog? I don’t think I’m embarrassed to have my friends read my blog. Coworkers? Yeah. Ex-friends and those who I would prefer not be involved with or know about my life? Hell yeah. But my friends are just that and accept me, quirks and all. There’s really nothing I write about that I wouldn’t say to my friends. All 2 of them.4) Did blogging cause positive changes in your thoughts? Absolutely. Through 4 years of blogging, I have learned to stop being afraid of my own faults. I’ve learned to be honest with what I see in the mirror.5) Do you only open the blogs of those who comment on your blog or do you love to go and discover more by yourself? I look at the blogs of people who comment. Through their blogs, I click on their links. I also have found some great ones through Blogshares. 6) What does a visitor counter mean to you? Do you like having one on your blog? My counter and stat trackers mean a lot to me. The count doesn’t really matter as much as finding out where my readers are coming from and what they read – it tells me what topics interest people the most.7) Did you try to imagine your fellow bloggers and give them real pictures? Not usually, except for Phil who I frequently picture nekkid while he’s blogging.8) Admit it. Do you think there is any real benefit in blogging? Yes – it’s cheaper than therapy and I’ve made some great friends. 9) Does criticism annoy you or do you feel it’s a normal thing? I haven’t really gotten much criticism to be honest. But when I do, I publish those comments as well. I do care how I’m perceived to some extent but mostly because it helps me see myself in a different wat.10) Were you shocked by the arrest of some bloggers? I’ve not heard of that. I’ve heard of people being fired for their blogs; I may still become one of them. I’ve heard of personal lawsuits coming from people’s blogs and I hear that may be in my immediate future as well. Hence my new about page – http://theweightisover.typepad.com/about.html11) What do you think will happen to your blog after you die? It will be on the evening news. “She blogged about being stalked by this wacko named Phil and damned if she wasn’t right.”
