Tagged by Momisodes ...

I have been tagged. I don't really know what the rules are - am I supposed to tag others after I do mine? Like 'Tag, you're it.'???? This culture is a little new to me, still, and I do want to be a good blogtizen, so someone is going to have to point out what I do or don't do regarding this.

Chain email Meme:
Tagged By: Sandy (Momisodes)

1. How long have you been blogging?
I started on blogspot in mid-September, as I started a Drawing and Sketching class - with the idea of creating an online diary for myself, to document my progress.

2. What inspired you to start a blog and who are your mentors?
I do computers for a living so it's just natural for me to use a computer to do something like a diary. Blogging just seemed a natural extension of that notion. As for mentors, I don't know that anyone has 'mentored' me, strictly speaking, but I have been inspired by some of the people I've dealt with out here. I have totally (and this is just between me and you - don't you dare tell anybody - promise me!!) fallen in love with Sandy and Lotus. I am amazed by people like Kelley and Siobhan and others like them - young mothers dealing with their everyday existence and problems with wit and charm and sarcasm and amazing courage.

3. Are you trying to make money online, or just doing it for fun?
Fun. I mean, this is supposed to be fun, right?

4. What 3 things do you love about being online?
There aren't three things that I can think of. I just like interacting with the people I've met, it gives me a chance to think about what I'm doing and to verbalize things that might be bothering me. But I can't think of more things. Right now. Yet. Maybe later.

5. What 3 things do you struggle with online?
Finding time for everything I want to do, getting off the computer when I should be doing something else and trying not to be outraged when I see some of the really stupid shit people do to each other.

Wow! You're a newbie too :)
I'm so flattered you like reading my blog too *blushes*...

You did a great job for your first meme! What you mention in the beginning is right. You can now tag other bloggers you know or wish to learn more about at the end of your post. Just write their names and link to their blogs like you did for Kelley and Siobhan.

Great job!
Thanks for playing :)
