Introduce Yourself

12.21.07 | 1 Comment

One of the bloggers I read had a good idea that I’d like to try here. Thanks to Feedburner, I have a general idea of how many people are subscribed to my RSS feed. Thanks to Google Analytics, I have an idea of how many people visit. I know exactly how many people have this same feed on their friends list at LiveJournal. However, many of you I only know by name or possibly reputation.

With the year winding down and a new one on the horizon, what better time to de-lurk and introduce yourself? Why stay at arm’s length? Let’s get to know one another a little better. Maybe 2008 will be the year our friendship grows. At the very least, we’ll know enough about one another that should we ever meet in person we’ll have something to talk about. Tell me (as much as you’re comfortable sharing):

  1. your name
  2. website(s) and/or profiles on Facebook and LJ
  3. how you know me or how you found Flametoad
  4. what we have in common (or why do you bother to read my ramblings)
  5. about yourself – are you married? have kids? how old and what are their names? what state/country do you live in? hobbies? what do you do professionally? what gets you so excited that you just can’t stop talking about it? What decade were you born in?
  6. what do you wish I’d write about more often? What do you wish I’d shut up about?

De-lurk and let’s get to know one another.

I don’t actually remember meeting you. You were a friend of Kyle and Bill’s and I knew them. I’m sure we met in band or something similarly nerdy.
Well, I haven’t been reading your ramblings. We have many things in common beginning with where we’re from. I wonder sometimes though because you’re from the north side and our south side homies don’t generally get along with north side twits.
Um, you know all this…but Married, 3, sometimes 4 children, Houston, TX, no real hobbies at the moment but climbing might be coming back, I’m not exactly an excitable person, and I’m Gen X (damn Baby Boomers keep wanting to classify me Gen Y; I tend to shove their Gen Y where the sun don’t shine; Gen Y is way too damn whiney)
This is your deal. Write about what you want to write about.
