Sunday Stealing from GLS because his is better

From Going Like Sixty who stole this from Sunday Stealing:

1. How long have you been blogging? since July, 2007, but don't got try to find most of those posts because I deleted them in December 2007 at the request of my extended family

2. What made you start? an itch to write and the death of my baby brother

3. Who inspired you? Going Like Sixty. He proved to me that you can be 60ish and still have something important to say combined with a great sense of humor.

4. About how many hours a week would you estimate you spend on your blog? It varies, but averages 1-1.5 hours

5. What kind of experience or background do you have with writing? amateur stuff, although I was a rhetoric major in college; written a few newspaper columns in the past few years

6. Talk about how you come up with blog topics. There's always something to write about - everywhere you look. Where do you get your ideas? in my brain 7. What or who inspires you and your blog? everything

8. Where and/or how do your brainstorming for your blog? No need to brainstorm, the topics are out there

9. Do you have any blogging rules or guidelines you follow? Keep the sexual stuff subtle or as inuendo. Limit the bragging about children to a minimum. Don't take myself too seriously.

10. Is there anything you will not blog about? hot flashes, menopause, periods, and other girlie crap. There are enough old female bloggers doing that, and that humor gets old very quickly.

11. Do you have any sort of a publishing schedule in terms of day of week or topic? nope, whatever, whenever I feel like it

12. Do you make any money from your blog? No, I can make more money elsewhere.

13. What blogging system do you use? Blogger. Someday I might change.

14. How did you come up your blog name? I've had that name in my head since high school when I read The Catcher in the Rye.

15. How many blogs do you have? two in active status, but only this one has regular posts. What was your peak? four I want to get back to writing more in the spring.

16. Do you have undeveloped blog domain names? yes Care to share them? not yet

17. Do you have any blog domain names that redirect to your main blog? no

18. Are you having as much fun as when you started? Writing, yes; but so many interesting bloggers have given up posting, so my reading others has declined, but I have found some new, interesting ones.

19. Where do you find other bloggers like you? comments and blog search engines
20. What’s your one wish when it comes to blogging? Sometimes I wish I had more followers, but then I decide I'm just being narcissistic.

I'm a muse! Yay! ...and Sunday Stealing may go part 2 next week including may adds.
And you are saying 60ish? referring to me of course!

Catch Her in the Wry said...

red: I'm always happy to add a laugh or two.

gls: As a matter of fact, I was referring to you as 60ish. I think you were about 59 when you started blogging if I remember correctly. I'm still trying to catch up with you age and posting-wise.
