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! 🙂
i love the way you write! Tech-tard is funny! lol! Btw *hi5* i like dark too! 🙂
Thank you, Mischievous Eyez!!! That is so nice to hear! (or, read) *hi5* 🙂
Congratulations! Continue being ever so bright! 😀
Thank you, Charming! Please continue being ever so educational and CHARMING! 🙂
You are too cute for your own good! I am ready to jump through this comment, and hug you happily ever after! 😉
You deserve an award just for using the word marvy. Well deserved award from what I can tell!!
jonathan, what you just said was MARVY! Thank you! I so enjoy the positivity and hope your blog, and think it’s marvy as well! 🙂
Congratulations and thank you for the praise!
It should please you to hear that all of your hard work has paid off: your blog rocks!
Yay! That really means a lot to me, Hook! Thank you for reals! 🙂
Congratulations and thank you!
Thank you for the wonderful recipes 🙂
Oh Amy, you and I are so similar with the hyper scrutinizing! I drive myself nuts over posts, and comments, and well, everything! *hyper scrutinized high five*
Congratulations! And thank you so much for the nomination!
Thank you MissFourEyes! I love what you write, so your admission to being a hyper-scrutinizer give me hope! HAha! *hyper scrutinized high five back atcha*
Thank you movie writer! 🙂
Congrats ‘tech-tard’ 😀
Thank you, pflead73 🙂
Congrats on your award. I don’t think I’m in the running for sunshiny awards like that because I’m so bitter.
Well, your approach to being bitter is funny, and funny leads people to feel sunny, SO…it could really put you in the running for a sunshiny award… 😉
That would be so rude if someone nominated me for a nice award.
HAhaa! I figured you might not take kindly to that 😉 But, if there were a bitter award…
Maybe someone should start the Bitter award. I would, but I have no artistic talent, and also I would be bitter that I would have to nominate other people. I would just have to take the award every year.
Congrats on your blog award!
Thank you! I appreciate you reading! 🙂
Oh…my goodness, I’m such a heel. I had no idea this was even here! Thanks so much!! When you said “Congratulations on your Sunshine Award” the other day, I was like, “I’ve got one? Where?” (Doh!) I admit that I don’t as much as I should about awards, but I’m very thankful and honoured. I appreciate that, Lucky. 🙂
You are so not a heel! I think I was the heel for not telling you! I was not sure how to handle the blog award thing. In case you didn’t already guess, I thought WAY too much about what to do…in fact, I can tell I’m thinking WAY too much about how to write what I am trying to say in this comment! 😀
You know, the fact that you’re JUST NOW commenting on it tells me you’ve been sitting there in your socks (with your cat) typing (backspace-delete- delete), refining- and tightening up your overall presentation. And who can could fault you for that. 😉 You, as you know, are a riot and I reeeeally love a person who can not only laugh with him or herself, but AT him or herself as well. I really wish I had the time to do the whole linking up the awards, etc.! I’m waaaay (hay hay) behind in my schoolwork. I can feel my GPA dying as we speak. But it means a lot to me! It really does. 🙂
I am late to the party (as usual) and am only just seeing this now! What a nice surprise – thank you my lovely. Being considered sunshiny by someone as bright and sunlit as yourself is such a nice compliment! 🙂
Being referred to as bright and sunlit by someone as sunshiny as YOU is a compliment! 😀 Thank you!
Hey, I came up with the wreck part!! :p Cuz Imma a ramblin’ wreck from GeorgiaTech… 😀
HAhaaa!! That’s funny! It rhymes, and rhymes are cool 😀
