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 :P)
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! 🙂
