I've been tagged by Halfmom aka Susan. Sorry it's taken a bit of a while to do this. My first effort somehow got deleted and since then I have been too busy with my compost heap to spend any time tapping away.
It's a good deal smaller since that photo was taken.
Rules of this tag: 1) Name the person with link who tagged you. 2) Complete the questionnaire without changing the questions. 3) Tag 6 or more people.
Q1. Are you happy/ satisfied with your blog, with its content and look?
A. Mmmm ... So, so.
Q2. Does your family know about your blog?
Q3. Do you feel embarrassed to let your friends know about your blog or you just consider it as a private thing?
A. No not at all. It's the other way round. I nag them to read it.
Q4. Did blogs cause positive changes in your thoughts.
Q5. Do you only open the blogs of those who comment on your blog or you love to go and discover more by yourself.
A. I go off reading all sorts of blogs, some full of nonsense and some brilliant. At first I just stuck to blogs belonging members of my family but then I started getting more confident and going elsewhere.
Q6. What does visitors' counter mean to you? Do you care about putting in in your blog?
A. I like to read the counter and look at the red splodges on the map where people come from. I would like to have one of those little ones on the front but don't know how to get one put on.
Q7. Did you try to imagine your fellow bloggers and give them real pictures?
A. Some of the people I visit have their photos on their blog sites, but others don't. I don't like my photo on mine much. Llamas are very shy don't you know. Unfortunately Maalie broke my cover and put a photo on his blog. I once had an anonomous visitor who refused to leave his name, and in the end I was forced to delete his comments when he became spiteful about one of my commentators. I had a pretty good idea what he looked like though:
Q8. Do you think there is a real benefit for blogging?
A. Oh yes, certainly. I have made really terrific friends through this blog from many countries and I would certainly never have made them without it, except perhaps for Simon the Ozzy. I met him in May at a family party in Spain.
Q9. Do you think that bloggers' society is isolated from real world or interacts with events?
A. I'm sure that some bloggers are in a world of their own, but hey, what's wrong with that? My cat writes comments to other cats, other cats write back. Course we live in reality.
This is Plumpy, Scaredy's best friend. They make plans to travel to visit each other.
Q10. Does criticism annoy you or do you feel it's a normal thing?
A. Normal thing? Would you say that my trigger finger itching is a normal thing?
Q11. Do you fear some political blogs and avoid them?
A. Of course I don't fear them! I just avoid them as generally they are so uninteresting.
Yawn, yawn, yawn.
Q12. Did you get shocked by the arrest of some bloggers?
A. Oh Martin, what have you been up to this time. Isn't an ASBO enough for you?
Q13. Did you think about what will happen to your blog after you die?
Q14. What do you like to hear? What's the song you might like to put a link to, in your blog?
A. Poison Ivy by Alice Cooper.
I would at this point very much like to thank my very patient and jovial nephew
Tortoiseshell for setting up this blog for me in the first place. If it wasn't for him I would never have had so much pleasure and met so many interesting people. Doing this blog has given me a certain measure of confidence about using computers, and I have now peeled off the sticky label that said 'on/off' by the start button as now I can remember where it is.
Tortoiseshell: mates with Scaredy, Plumpy, Elbi, Mahou and Beeps.
I would also like to thank Mr Maalie:
Maalie has been very helpful tweaking my blog from time to time. If I get him on a good day he can be very accommodating. And yes, he is forgiven for messing with my llama picture.
I now have to tag a few people myself. With great apologies I tag Maalie, Tortoiseshell, Ju's Little Sister, Raelha, Kiwi Nomad and Simon. I have deliberately left out TCA as he has other fish to fry at the moment, as it were.
