1.Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
This all seems very familiar. Is it "deja vu all over again?" OH! I know what this is. It’s the blogosphere’s version of a chain letter, which I manage to successfully avoid when they come through the snail mail or my e-mail in-box. (I promptly chuck them in the trash or hit DELETE.) Sadly, it’s harder to ignore being “tagged” on the blogosphere, since it’s easier to see who tagged you AND they can check back to see if you have tagged someone else. What’s worse, you have a couple of dilemmas.
A) How to respond, since in effect you already have posted ten random facts about yourself earlier on the blog?
B) Do you have to come up with seven more facts? Oh, here’s one: I’m not that interesting!
C) Here’s another – I don’t know that many people who would participate. The seven who might “play” are related to me and started this whole tagging mess OR are the some of same seven people already tagged. Is this a Boolean paradox?
D) How to respond and not annoy the person who tagged you?
E) What are the consequences for not following the rules? Will the Great and Omnipotent Tagger put you in “time out?”
F) Are there enough readers of this blog who will care if you don’t list more strange things about yourself? (*ahem, shameless request for comments, ahem*)
G) What will you talk about if they DO care?
So here’s who I’m tagging:
I’m sure they’ll have fun things to say.
