Two of the most common things that I hear from bloggers who are irregular with their posting is that they are busy and they don’t know what to write. Well, I find myself busy. I’m working on getting all of my stuff packed to ship to Alaska, selling my truck, and working part time from home. It’s not the type of busy that I don’t have free time, it’s the type of busy that makes me feel the impending date when loose ends must be tied. That day is next Tuesday. I’ll be jumping on a plane and heading to Alaska. So, is there any better time to participate in a little meme action? Well, Erin tagged me, and instead of just posting it, I thought I would use it as a lesson for blogger’s block. If you can’t think of anything to say, try participating in one of the memes floating around the webs.
Pretty simple, here’s the rules.
1. Go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday, month and day only.
2. List 3 events that occurred on that day.
3. List 2 important birthdays.
4. List 1 death.
5. List a holiday or observance. (if any)
6. Tag 5 other bloggers.
