One of the award stipulations is to give an account of how I got started in blogging, so here goes: I grew up in a large family- I've got eight brothers and sisters- in a semi rural community. It was at least a half hour drive to the nearest library, and pretty much everything else. This meant that my siblings and I spent a lot of time together, watched the same TV shows and movies, and read a lot of the same books. And, being a naturally opinionated bunch, we argued... er, discussed all of these things vociferously. Now that we all live in different places and have wildly different schedules, it's a lot harder for any of us to get together to watch movies or discuss books. I really miss that, and started this blog to continue to express my thoughts and opinions about what I'm watching and/or reading.
I'm also supposed to nominate 15 other bloggers for this award, but I'm going to have to defer this, at least for the present. I'm not sure that I can at this moment come up with that many which: a) I read on anything like a regular basis, and b) haven't already been nominated. In any case, I don't have the time to rack my brain right now, due to the previously mentioned work schedule. I will try to revisit this, I promise. Or rather, I hope.
