10 questions that must be answered by every nominee:
1. What inspired you to start blogging?
I thought it might be a good way to learn and push myself beyond my comfort zone…and it did
2. How did you come up with the name for your blog?
I was talking to some people I’d just met, and somehow mentioned that I was a “tech-tard”. They both said…”Haha, that’s funny. You should start a blog and call it Tech-tard”. So, I did. Initially, I thought I’d write about my adventures in learning the adobe suite as well as my technological ignorance(s). After a while, I found myself wanting to write about other things, so I decided to change the name of it. In my search for names, I found a blog name generator thing that spewed out a bunch of different word combinations. The combination of “Lucky Wreck” stood out to me because it seemed to describe my life pretty accurately, so I went with it (despite the fact that it came from the blog name generator thingy )
3. What is your favorite blog that you like to read?
There are so many different ones I like! I have noticed there are different ones I like with different moods. I am continually amazed by how well people can write!
4 Tell about your dream job (maybe you’re doing it now!)?
Hmmm…I can think of a lot of different things that would be involved in my dream job, but mostly, it would just involve sitting around laughing with people
5. Is your glass half full or half empty?
Ummm…its half empty AND half full, but I try to focus on the half full part
6. If you could do anywhere for a week’s vacation, where would you go?
7. What food can you absolutely not eat?
Mayonnaise (unfortunately, I think they eat a lot of mayonnaise in Sweden).
8. Dark chocolate or milk chocolate?
Gosh…both! But, I’ve read that dark chocolate is full of antioxidants, so I usually consume massive amounts of dark chocolate and use the “health benefits” as an excuse….to myself…in my head.
9. How much time do you spend blogging-in other words, are you one of those lucky people who can dash off a blog post in no time, or like me and take forever on one post to get it just right?
I spend SO much time on one post and hyper scrutinize it over and over again until its either perfect (which is never), or I have driven myself nuts and just post it to preserve my mental health.
10. Do you watch TV-if so what are some of your favorite shows?
I do watch T.V. Lately, I’ve been on a kick watching “The Office”.
There are a ton of other blogs I wanted to list as well. These are two more of my favorites:
Hot Pink Underwear - http://hotpinkunderwear.com
It Keeps Me Wonderin…- http://isthatcoffee.wordpress.com
and then I started thinking…and OVER THINKING…”what if they don’t accept awards…am I even doing this award thing correctly”? l best go emotionally eat some cookies before this gets out of hand
Thank you, again MischievousEyez!
