Aww Mondays - 44 Facts

I've been blogging since 2007. Back in the early days of my blogging there were fewer photos posted than now and some of the memes were more information based or called upon the participant to explore their creative side. One of my favorite memes Thursday Thirteen. Each week the blogger was required to come up with a list of thirteen items based on a theme of their own choosing. One of the favorites from my warped mind was based on thirteen ways to know if you're a bass fisherman. A couple of examples...
You might be a bass fisherman if;
1.   The engine on your boat has a higher horsepower rating that your wife's car.
2.   Your truck and boat are color coordinated, but your living room furniture isn't.
3.   Losing your tackle box would reduce your net worth by 25%
The other day a friend of mine posted 44 personal facts on Facebook. I thought it was fun, so here are mine. You might say Ahh or Aww, but it is unlikely that you will be in Awe of this list. Have a blessed day.

  4. I haven't been blogging as long as you but there has been a definite move toward photos and away from text. As administrator of Skywatch Friday I see lots more European, Australian, and New Zealand bloggers now. I guess that I should do a study but I would guess that over 50 percent of photobloggers are from overseas.
