A Way of Learning About Jbloggers

We jbloggers (Jewish bloggers) are a varied crew. At some point, someone came up with a method of "interviewing" other bloggers. It's a bit sneaky and called memes. Instead of just asking questions, we're ambushed by being "tagged."

My participation in this is usually from
me-ander, but Hadassa--In the Pink, tagged this persona. I shouldn't be surprised, because very few me-ander visitors are regulars; most are via google.

Here are the rules:

1. Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people (if possible) at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs.
And here are my seven facts:
  1. In the second grade, I wrote my first composition, in which I stated that "...I want to be an entertainer, because I am talented." Yes, it's amazing what one remembers.
  2. My first memory was from when I was just over two and went to my uncle's wedding. I was sat at the "children's table" but couldn't reach the food. My Cousin Butchie helped me. The rest of the cousins, all bigger were too busy having fun.
  3. When I was little, we called my grandmother "bubby." Then I stated that she should be "grandma," and everyone accepted it. When my first child was born, her first great-grandchild, I stated that she should be called "bubby."
  4. My favorite color in high school was bright orange, and I had at least three orange dresses.
  5. The biggest mistake I made since aliyah was not perfecting my written Hebrew. I find reading it torture. Many friends and neighbors beg me to write in Hebrew, since their English isn't up to reading my articles. I know that it would be so important to have a wider influence in Israel.
  6. I've always loved art, but since I could never draw well, I wasn't considered talented. Thank G-d for photography.
  7. Living in Shiloh is the longest I (and my husband) have ever lived in any place in the world. We've been here since 1981.

I tag:

I will write something, but probably not today because I am at work now and then I will be going to Jerusalem to the azkara for Eli & Chuck so b'ezrat hashem tomorrow or the next day.

YMedad said...

Sorry, I try not to participate in memes. I won't elucidate.

Batya said...

Risa, b'ezrat Hashem, I'll see you at the azkara. Is anything new?

Sheva said...

Risa Tzohar said...

OK, I did it.

SuperRaizy said...

Thank you for listing me in such good company!

Sorry, but I can't do this on my blog. Many of my readers (the special-needs crowd)are non-Jews, and I see no reason for me to link to your blog and have them read about "Jbloggers".Besides who in the world would I tag. Everybody has been already.....

Batya said...

r'smom, certainly, I understand.

Risa and Raizy, great! Thanks

I just hope that's the end of the meme season for awhile.
