Been tagged… Damn it!
I’ve been tagged by my evil twin
Here are the questions and the answers:
1- Do you like the look and the contents of your blog?
I pledged a picture and a small passage for every memory and every feeling that I go through. I usually write and go. I don’t take a look till after a short while and I’m always surprised at my state of mind at the time. That I like.
2- Does your family know about your blog?
Only my sister indulges me. The rest of my family doesn’t have time for my scribblings.
3- Can you tell your friends about your blog? Do you consider it a private thing?
At first I was telling everyone i know and asking everyone to start their own blog. It felt like a reunion. With time it got to be a little space were I try to run away from everyone. So it became more private.
4- Do you just read the blogs of those who comment on your blog? or you try to discover new blogs?
I’m a regular at some blogs. People I know. People I got to know. People I admire. I do check the blogs of people who comment and might become a regular if I liked what I saw.
5- Did your blog positively affect your mind? Give an example.
It sure does. It is a stress release and that surely keeps my mental health. It also stimulates me to keep notes and learn more about stories I want to share.
6- What does the number of visitors to your blog mean? Do you use a traffic counter?
I use a traffic counter and I hate when the number of visitors dramatigally plummets. I become my own agent worried about ratings.. No.. I care more about the people who comment. I think people only comment when something speaks to them.
7- Did you imagine how other bloggers look like?
I do that all the time.
8- Do you think blogging have any real benefit?
We covered that.
9- Do you think that the blogsphere is a stand alone community separated from the real world?
Blah… Blah… Blah…
No, especially not when the mainstream media starts quoting blogs and starts a segment about what’s new in political blogs.
10- Do some political blogs scare you? Do you avoid them.
Yes. Being used to the Lebanese politics, I find it hard to refute any theory that defies the mainstream opinion but some blogs are either too far to the right, which I find appaling or too far to the left to a point where you start doubting everything and it gets scary.
11- Do you think that criticizing your blog is useful?
No. You can criticize how I look, how I walk, how I think. My blog is a reflection of my state of mind and to a great exent my character. There’s no point in criticizing that.
12- Have you ever thought about what happen to your blog in case you died?
13- Which blogger had the greatest impression on you?
Tara and Neil. See for yourself.
14- Which blogger you think is the most similar to you.
Can’t say. I identify with certain aspects of some bloggers’ writings. I share a lot of Apokraphyte’s ideals and principles. Ghassan writes about a very similar emotional experience. Lirun in his spirit and stubborness. I wish I could say fz, I love her imaginative prose and I truly identify with everything she writes. Ok I guess within our little circle, I feel we’re all very similar.
15- Name a song you want to listen to?
Rfee’e Soub7i ljeez :)
16- Ask five bloggers to answer these question on their blogs?
