Restarting this thing

I have been doing a lot of reading, taking lots of notes in order to review books here. Doing every thing but posting said book reviews. Going to kick start myself by doing this.

Doing a selfsagacity meme, but for some reason the code will not transfer over.

1- Is my world big or small
--- Personally I have to say my world is big, not big big, but medium size big. I know people from all different walks of life, I have profiles in way to many networking sites to keep track of.

2- How do you feel about being known? Would you like to be famous?
--- It is kind of fun to be known, to talk to someone who has heard of me, or reads one of my many blogs, or comments in other blogs. In a way it helps in that I do not have to introduce my self. Someone who reads my personal blog already knows about my health issues, already knows I have a service dog. I think some times that my service dog is the famous one, and I am just along for the ride.

My two questions

1- Have you ever read a memoir of someone who suffered from an illness? One of my favorite is All in my head as a person who suffers from an invisible illness her struggles to find a cure had real resonance for me.

2- Have you ever meet a person for the first time, who you knew a little bit because you had read their blog?


  1. Hi, it's been a while, glad to see you again. Hope you are finding your way in this blogging business.
    1) Yes I have. About three that were very close to me. They were my clients, all suffered from cancer. I watched them go through it until the last day. It was horrible and stressful.
    2) No, I have never met anyone in person, but vice verse, I know people, then I go to read their blog and it isn't what I would have thought they might be from knowing them...this is a great subject BTW-
    Thanks for hanging out with us this week. Remember to play again next week.

  2. I had the second one happen to me, when I sent an email volunteering to help out at the Fluff Festival. The person organizing the volunteers was so excited to get a chance to talk to me.

    I'll try to get better about blogging.

  3. 1. I've not read a memoir but I remember watching the documentary of Farrah Fawcett going through the stages of her cancer and thinking to myself, I could never be that brave.

    2. I have so many blogging friends online though have not met any in person thus far. I think it would be fun, though.

  4. 1. I've not read a memoir but I've watched biographies of some people.

    2. I haven't yet met any bloggy friends in RL but I hope to.
