A Thursday Meme

"Do you know how popular I am? I am so popular. Everybody loves me so much at this school."
~from "The Breakfast Club"

I am crazy...I am out of time...I am supposed to be finished with my One Night in Boston edits TODAY and I still have 9 chapters to go (thank goodness my editor doesn't read my blog to know least, I don't think she does...)

Anyway, Rebecca tagged me with this (thankfully) short meme, so this is all I have to offer you today. Then it's back to the editing board. Don't worry, though, I'm still saving up all the good tips I'm learning and will share with you soon. I promise!

1. What makes your blog unique? Oh, boy, probably not much. I know there are much more clever bloggers out there. I'd like to think that there aren't any other Allie B's out there who post writing tips on Wednesdays, though, so maybe that's a little unique.

2. When did you start blogging? I think it was last November.

3. What do you hope to accomplish with your blog? My original intent was to simply get my name into cyber-world before my novels came out. To that extent, I hope I've accomplished that goal, even on a very small scale.

4. What are your feelings on the "blog popularity"? Oh this like high school all over again? Are the cool kids the ones with 25 comments on every post? Are the mean girls the one who tear apart other people's blog posts? Are the rich kids the ones with incredible graphics and songs and pictures? (child of the 80s slowly self-destructs...)

Found your blog while surfing through the internet. Nice one...

Well, blogging is an addiction. I am also a lover of words who likes to read different view points offered by others. Thanks to internet, it has become so easy to know what other people from some other part of the globe deal with their day to day chores.

BTW, I am Partha, a management student (going to join IIM Lucknow) from India.

Holey Moley! I'm glad I didn't get tagged with that one.

Those are hard questions!

Well, except for number 2. I could look that one up....

I remember edits.

I don't miss them.

Good luck and remember to sleep. :)

I think the blog popularity issue - whatever it is - sounds very much like something out of high school.
