Friday Fun: Tag I'm It!


Friday Fun is Diva Marketing's virtual happy hour from cosmos to Jack to lemonade. A waiting for the weekend 'playground' time to be sophisticated-silly. Or sometimes just plain silly.

Children_playing_tag_1 Sun's out. Rain's gone. It's a beautiful day in Atlanta to play along with another meme. Since I've been tagged not once, not twice, but three times (and feeling some blogger guilt at not responding sooner) here are my Five Reasons Why I Blog. Thanks to Valeria Maltoni - Conversation Agent, Kristie T - Kristie T's Home Business Blog and Kate Sternberg and Allison Kurpius - Fix Your Marketing.

Sidebar: A meme is a silly, fun game that serves a larger purpose in the virtual world. Some call it an online chain letter but I think it has a higher calling. It helps build community and give us an excuse to get to know each other a bit better.

Five Reasons Why I Blog

1. I blog because I'm curious and learning is never ending.
2. I blog because my network and in turn, resources, are expanded within a global community and I never could have met the people I know know any other way.
3. I blog because it is good for my business and it's worth the investment in terms of positioning, reach and awareness.
4. I blog because it gives me an opportunity to stretch my skills and I would not have the discipline to write on a consistent basis if it were not for the commitment to communicate, connect and help others through the exchange of ideas and conversation while having fun with y'all. Thank you!
5. I blog because of the surprises that blogging brings and I might not have the opportunities that have come my way along with meeting new, wonderful, real friends.

business astrology for fun -
from The Astro Divas Paula Dare & Donna Page

Watch out folks. Hang on to your hats! Tomorrow 3/3/07 we have a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse. You've all all heard the stories about people doing weird things on a Full Moon. A Lunar Eclipse can intensify emotions. The effects can last 3-5 days before and or after. Take care not to take out your weird feelings on family, friends and co-workers.

The Moon opposes Uranus and that could add an electrical charge to the emotions as well. Uranus is conjunct the Sun and Jupiter is aggravating this with a square to it and a square to the Moon. You could stay angry with the other  person and say to hell with it or you could take a deep breath and decide forgiveness is a better route to take.

A little note off the biz. Watch the news. The Jupiter square Uranus  has a lot to do with the fight for the rights of freedom. This is not good for the political or religious scene. Leaders - especially the fanatics - could get agitated and make very poor decisions

The good news this coming week is that the planet of communication turns direct Wednesday 3/7/07. This has been a rough Mercury Retrograde for a lot of people. It started 2/13/07. Communications start to clear up. Important decisions you've been waiting to make or contracts you need to sign can be made. It occurs at 11:45 PM EST so I'd wait till Thursday.

Hello Diva,

What a wonderfully international and diverse group of friends you tagged. That gives me an opportunity to explore.

Wow! Great list of folks and great list of reasons to blog!

I like #5 the most; the surprises are never ending and always rewarding. I have been blessed to get to know the people I have and to learn so many things.

Happy weekend!

I need to add one more tag - the Masiguy. Why? Because I want to know if he blogs to show off his socks (wink). Seriously, Tim if you've not been tagged with this meme - "you're it" too.

It IS just so full of surprises :).

I like your second reason... I can't count the number of people I have met from all over the world that I wouldn't have come in contact with otherwise. Great post.
