Sunday Stealing: The Pretentious Blogging Meme

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing: originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser:

"Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we also have our rules. First, we always credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim's post. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") We do sometimes edit the original meme, usually to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, sometimes to select that meme's best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from either this new meme or recently asked questions from a prior featured meme. Let's go!"

Today we ripped this meme off a blogger known as Little Bark from the blog The Tree Unleashed. She explains that she found it over at The Tree of Life. It appears it originated on that blog. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Cheers to all of us thieves!

Sunday Stealing: The Pretentious Blogging Meme

1. How long have you been blogging? Regularly for just about a year.

2. What made you start? Originally back in 2005 to keep our family up to date with what was going on after we moved away... then I stopped in 2006. I started up again in Feb. 2009 to enter some giveaways and met some great people... and now my husband says I am addicted.

3. Who inspired you? My husband first started me blogging by having me enter the giveaways. Then there were lots of women I met through blogging that truly helped me and made me want to get better. [I've listed them a couple of times in the last week of so. Please read my blog to find these wonderful women - Shameless plug!!]

4. About how many hours a week would you estimate you spend on your blog? On MY blog about 13 - 15 hours most weeks, some weeks a bit more.

5. What kind of experience or background do you have with writing? Just high school - but I did get an award when I graduated, with a $25 check {shows you how old I am}!!

6. Talk about how you come up with blog topics. Where do you get your ideas? From everywhere... whatever happens in my life: my blog is about me and my family, so whatever happens is fodder for the blog. My family is fond of saying, "is that gonna be on the blog?" And of course, I am never without my camera, so my husband is always pointing out things that would be great for memes or just funny for the blog. He is terrific!!

7. What or who inspires you and your blog? Isn't this the same question as #6? Hello... everything.

8. Where and/or how do your brainstorming for your blog? Um, this is getting a bit monotonous... whatever happens, I just write about it.

9. Do you have any blogging rules or guidelines you follow? The only rule I have is that I will not post any photos of friends children without their permission FIRST; and I will not post their real names if they don't want, plus NO last names of children. Other than that... not really. Oh, yeah, NO SPAM - spam sucks!!

10. Is there anything you will not blog about? I don't know, I don't like to write about other people's troubles, I am not really a gossip. I don't like to kick a person when they are down. Just don't hurt my family or friends - then you are TOAST!!

11. Do you have any sort of a publishing schedule in terms of day of week or topic? Not really, because I am disabled and am in a lot of pain a lot of the time, I write when I can and blog hop whenever I am able. No schedule... I blog, read, nap, eat, sleep, whatever - whenever I feel like it. I have the best husband in the world!! Not bad, huh???

So, that brings us to the close of another Sunday Stealing. Now don't forget to visit the other participants of this meme, I'm sure there are lots of great answers... see you next week. Hope you had a great weekend.

Until next time..... Lorie

I love that we think alike my dear!

I was not the only one who was just aggravated by the repetitiveness.

OH, your first picture didn't show up when I was reading! :(

Good answers chick! So now I know why you started blogging. We all have our reasons. Yours is probably one of the best reasons to keep blogging
